Square Meal Review of The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town ?

If you manage to locate this cool candlelit bunker, you will be guaranteed a good time. For once, here is a ‘speakeasy' in the true clandestine sense of the term – although it seems half the City is already in on the secret. Inside, it feels like an old Virginia coal mine invaded by a hollerin' hound-dog soundtrack. Park yourself on a high banquette and sink a mean dirty-sweet or dry martini, pear and cardamom sidecar, Lynchburg-Leith lemonade or chilli and lemongrass margarita. Beer drinkers have Cusqueña, Cruzcampo and Timothy Taylor Landlord, while grape interest starts well below £20. Staff are as cute as the bar's ‘trick' entrance, and the food is Happy Days/Brady Bunch stuff: onion rings, buffalo chicken, chilli cheese fries and viciously spiced meatballs – definitely not for ‘scaredy cats'.

    The List :: Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town

    The Breakfast Club started life in Soho back in 2005 but has since spread its wings to Angel, Hoxton, Spitalfields and Battersea. The Spitalfields branch was the first to get on the speakeasy train with their hidden bar, The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town. When it first opened, you needed to ask to see the Mayor before being led through a Smeg Fridge to the downstairs bar but this formality seems to have disappeared over time. We rocked up at 6.30 last Friday and there was only standing space available, but before too long we squeezed into two seats at the bar - the only place one should ever sit in a cocktail bar. Not only do you get the most out of the entertaining bartenders, you also get the best view of the eye-catching decor...

    sexdrugsandbaconrolls :: The Mayor of Scardy Cat Town

    As any of you who have been to the Breakfast Club will know there is always a long queue, but if you are in the know (or have read this post and want to give it a go) in The Spitalfield’s Breakfast Club you can ask to be taken to the Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town and skip the queue. Ok I admit you will be given the evil eye by those waiting in the queue (I have even been called names for pushing in) but it is much better than queuing outside. You are then taken through the Smeg fridge, which before you know would never guess it is a secret door to an underground bar. You are then taken down a black staircase with a neon sign stating ‘Thrills’, pointing downstairs...
