I have finally finished my 14 days of self-isolation after arriving from the USA, and I was gagging to hit the streets of London (safely of course). I was excited for our first real date in SIX MONTHS and planned to visit Cahoots in London for some ‘tipples and treats.’ Cahoots is a 1940’s themed pub hidden underground beneath the old Kingly Court tube station.
When we arrived it was clear a lot of thought was put into every detail from the entrance with the train guard, the ticket office cloak room, the vintage decorations hanging on the walls, and the whole train carriage downstairs.
Every touch was perfectly authentic and even the drinks menu was handed to us on an old newspaper. Vintage decorations hung everywhere and this bar transported us back in time as we were served spiffing cocktails, black market liquor and post-war rationed snacks.
The ‘tipples’ are like props, with a wildly eccentric offering of cocktails such as the ‘The Winston Churchill’, ‘Greasing the Wheels’ and ‘The Vera Lynn’. The best part about the drinks is they are nice and strong, and served in interesting glasses. The ‘treats’ include warm sausage rolls and a classic Victoria sandwich cake.
The cocktails and atmosphere were divine and the 1940’s swing music added to the ambience, and it was a fun place for a weekend date.
We felt confident in our safety since Cahoots has put all of the required Covid safety measures in place that include: social distancing between tables, temperature checks upon arrival, the staff wear masks at all times, enhanced cleaning procedures, and the ‘track and trace’ system is in place.
It’s clear how much time and effort has gone into reopening this establishment and you can’t help but have a good time. Reservations are a must and you can make them here for your two hour time-slot.
