Squaremeal Review of Cahoots ?

Like Gary Sparrow in 1990s sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart, you can time-travel back to WWII London when you rap on the ticket-office window at this mock-up 1940s Tube station. Set on a long-forgotten fantasy branch of the Bakerloo Line, complete with an original Underground carriage, it offers the chance to discover an air-raid shelter at the height of The Blitz. Jollied up by pint-pot pick-me-ups and tipples in Thermos flasks (all readied by a matinee idol manqué), Cahoots’s imagined cast of saucy sweater girls, seamed-stocking sirens, spivs, scoundrels, GIs and sailors jive to live electro-swing and gather for a sing-song at the old Joanna. With its period-perfect styling and wartime rations, even Vera Lynn would be fooled by this blast from the past – a celebration of plucky Londoners’ ‘keep calm and carry on’ ethos. And what a camp carry-on it is.

    Tasting Menu at Evoluzione, Hotel Xenia LondonThat Adventurer :: Cahoots, London - That Adventurer

    Last week, when the temperatures soared to 36 degrees (boiling for England!) and London was failing to cope, I ended up heading underground. To a tube station no less.

    If you’ve ever been in London in the Summer, you’ll know that The Underground should be avoided if at all possible. It’s hot, stuffy and, if last Wednesday is anything to go by, you’ll probably end up with someone else’s sweat on you.

    Don’t worry, I hadn’t completely lost it! I had good reason to be heading underground on the hottest July day since records began. I was headed to the coolest (it was actually pretty cool temperature...

    Andrea's Passions :: Cahoot’s: An Underground Squiffy Picnic Keeping the Blitz Alive

    I think it’s safe to say that everyone loves afternoon tea. But finding a good quirky one can be a bit of a challenge.

    But, thanks to Cahoots, you need look no further.

    Cahoots is a themed bar located underground Kingly Court, which aims to preserve the ‘Blitz spirit’ of the 1940’s with everything from the furniture to the uniforms in perfect costume.

    In addition to serving deliciously potent cocktails and providing brilliant live swinging entertainment, it seems that Cahoots can now add epic afternoon teas to its repertoire.

    We Love Food, It :: London's new whizzo underground bar | Cahoots, 13 Kingly Court, London W1B 5PG | We Love Food, It's All We Eat

    It takes a lot to excite us, there are countless new bar openings in London and to be honest, most of them look just like the last one. But then Cahoots happened and Kingly Court got even better. It’s formerly the Disco club, part of the Inception Group who own bars like Bunga Bunga and Mr Fogg’s – none of which we’ve been to, but we want to now. Inception’s Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling have turned it into Cahoots – an amazing 1940s themed bar in an old air raid shelter disguised as a tube station, tucked away just off Carnaby Street...

    Cahoots I must say was the very definition of a theme bar done right. With cocktails to live up to the d&cor.
    We had already been drinking fairly heavily throughout the evening so were a bit squiffy when we finally rocked up to Cahoots at 11 and hoped there would be space for us. They were able to accommodate us at our favourite space – the bar, where we made ourselves comfortable and woofed down two tins of the complimentary popcorn (no dinner had been had that evening).
    When you arrive you go into a little foyer, just like a ticketing area at a station, before you go through the ‘secret’ panels to the bar...
