Ever wanted to secretly rob a bank, hold up a train or fancy yourself as the next Bonny and Clyde?
Us too. These are the things we dream about every day in our daily jobs, as the minutes tick away; life of adventure, scandal and debauchery. After all, everyone needs to be arrested at some point in their lives. What else would you tell the grandchildren?
Lucky for you we have the perfect destination for all your imaginative planning (maybe you’ll give us a cut of that bank robbery?).
Soho’s secret sensation, appropriately labelled Cahoots, is teaming up with Basement Galley for the first time on Sunday 7th June for an afternoon of fine dining, cocktails and singalongs. The Upperground Superclub will be sure to whisk you away to the fare circa 1946.
Chef Alex Cooper will be rewinding your imagination back, to the flying 40’s, with era classics such as spicy spam ceviche with apricot curd, pumpernickel crumb and manchego foam or the steamed pudding, preserved fruits and rhubarb served in a Kilner Jar and topped with banana custard. We can imagine the dishes 80 years ago weren’t as creative as this!
It’s not all food, we knew they loved a tipple or two in the forties, after all they didn’t have internet. Sure what else would you be at? The sharer cocktail is The Tanqueray No. TEN Station Clock, served in an actual clock with a working clock face. These cocktails are timeless (did you see what I did there?).
The Basement Galley started out as an on the side project for Alex Cooper and Tom Fothergill to create and live out new recipe ideas, the venue then developed into an Underground Supper Club in a part of the decommissioned 1967 Victoria Line.
We all know that none of us are actually brave enough to rob a bank (yet) but get down to Cahoots anyway….you never know when there’s going to be another recession.
