1940s is alive and well at the Cahoots bar. As well as serving classic cocktails, black market liquor and post-war favourites are available, in particular rum and gin based drinks can be furtively knocked back from old mugs, hip flasks, vintage milk bottles and tins, finished with ingredients half-inched from nana’s pantry, picked from the allotment and foraged from London’s ruins.
Those wily enough to find their way into Cahoots, drinking den of the Scoundrels, will discover a triumph of post-war resourcefulness, from the old fashioned wooden escalators that lead guests downstairs, to the dramatic, tiled platform bar set alongside vintage train carriages. The 1940s tube carriage seats, mismatched furniture, will complete the perfect backdrop for a jolly good knees-up.
Jazz, swing and lindyhop with some rock’n’roll and electro-swing later in the night. Every Wednesday to Sunday Cahoots hosts some mischievous live entertainment, including piano sing-a-longs, live music and masters of discs spinning their vintage records (from inside a slyly converted piano of course!).
