Step back in time at Cahoots, London’s newest best kept secret
What I’m about to tell you must be kept under wraps, it’s only for those in the know, if everyone finds out about it the cover will be blown.
I had the pleasure of being invited to a meeting at a very interesting venue called Cahoots at 13 Kingly Court in Soho, it’s so different and unique I just have to tell you about it.
So this little place, it’s one of the air raid shelters that used to be an underground station. We sat in the tube carriages which have had tables set in to create lovely booths and of course it’s all been jazzed up with bits and bobs from the folks who have hid out in there during the bombings, now the war is over it still hugs life after hours. The place is buzzing with guys and gals dancing all the popular swing time numbers, there’s a very talented pianist who provides a great sing along and best of all mugs of the most intoxicating cocktails of rum and gin! There’s even some Spitfire Premium Kentish Ale available if you know the right barman to ask for it.
Although the food is not the focal point there are a few interesting morels to be tried. From the allotment and probably robbed from Nana’s cupboard, crisp sandwiches like my mam used to make sometimes for picnics, popcorn served in old coffee tins and of course some spam fritters to help line the stomach. It’s a right hoot, I don’t think I’ve ever had a better secret to keep.
Give this number a ring 0207 352 6200 but kept it to yourself. Mums the word right!
