Post-war London was a thrilling, yet somewhat dangerous place to be in. However, thanks to nostalgic war-themed venues, we can have all the fun of the forties, without any of the danger (they can’t save us from over-friendly drunks though!) Soho’s new underground sensation Cahoots is teaming up with the Basement Galley for an afternoon of fine dining, cocktails and post-war shenanigans. Guests will be transported to a world of scoundrels, underground jazz and a quintessentially British-inspired summer menu. The Underground Supper Club will offer guests a truly immersive dining experience with a menu that features the best of British fare circa 1946, as well as pairing them with speciality cocktails.

Guest will enjoy a four course menu that pays homage to post-war Britain. The refreshing starter will be a chilled wild garlic and green pea soup with a strawberry emulsion and pea shoots, paired with the brilliantly named specialty cocktail ‘Give Peas a Chance’. Mains will be a vibrant cherry wood vodka and grapefruit cured salmon with sweet Dijon and fennel flowers paired with the ‘Gipsy’s Kiss’ cocktail. Diners can tuck into scrumptious BBQ lamb neck with white onion and garlic puree, smoked confit aubergine and rosemary croquettes, paired with the ‘See You Later Baked Potato’ savoury cocktail. The final course, i.e. the most important, will be an apricot and thyme sorbet, lavender shortbread and lemon posset. Three things The Handbook loves is quirkiness, good food and great cocktails, and The Underground Supper Club has all three! We’re not such a big fan of the whole international conflict thing though, but it still seems like this supper club is the (almost) perfect combination!

Cahoots Presents the Underground Supper Club will open Sunday, 9th August 2015.
