It’s all about Cahoots!

Soho’s new underground, tube themed bar has officially opened. So last night I headed back to the 1940’s to see what all the fuss was about. 

In an old air raid shelter in soho, you will find a secretive yet stylish, post war bar. That is, IF you can find it.

It's hard to get in without a reservation because the bar has only just opened and it's still extremely popular but we tried anyway and luckily we made our way underground. 

Take your ticket to the ticket inspector who will buzz you through to the train. 

Inside, it’s pretty cool but I don’t want to spoil too much because I think the beauty about this place is that it’s different, quirky and almost a bit taboo. You do feel like you’re in a speakeasy.

Apart from the atmosphere being electric, the cocktails are incredible.
Drinks can be served in Thermos flasks, milk bottles and goblets with drink ingredients ranging from oxo cubes to the sweetest mouth-watering cocktails I have ever tried.

Feeling peckish, we even ordered something from the rations menu.
Cheese and pickle sandwiches and crisp and salad cream ones too.

This bar is great but hats off must also go to the staff as well who are brilliant. Attentive and friendly they whizz around the place always in character and ensuring that you are having a ‘swinging’ good time. 

My advice is to try and book a reservation as early as you can. They don’t really let you in without one.
It's only been open for 2 weeks and already the waiting list extends until the end of May
However, I was still advised to try on the day and I’m so glad I did. Eventually the kind chap on the door let us through and even managed to find us a table.

So if you can’t get a reservation, just show up and smile sweetly at the man on the door. 

And don’t forget to ‘Follow the Trains’.
