Barge through the busy streets of Soho and emerge in the ever-vibrant Kingly Court, home of Pizza Pilgrims, The Rum Kitchen, Señor Ceviche, The Detox Kitchen… The list goes on, and includes Cahoots. This 1940s themed bar isn’t easy to find, and even when you do you don’t just walk straight in. Greeted by a stationmaster in full costume and full character – accent ‘n all – if you fit the brief (play it cool and go with the flow) you will be ushered down a wooden escalator and arrive in a disused tube station, inspired on the usage of the underground during the war.
Cahoots are bringing their night time soul to Sundays with their new Squiffy Picnic. Live jazz, swing and lindyhop will set the tone to a great British feast. Wicker hampers (choose from 3 different types) come stuffed with classic British cucumber, salmon and beef sarnies as well as pork pies, sausages, cheeses, sponge cake, lavender shortbread and homemade tiffin and a few different drinks. Phew. No artsy teeny portions here. On arrival a Sipsmith Summer Cup cocktail will be thrust into your cold little hand, keeping summer alive because hey once you’re underground it does’t matter that it’s baltic outside. Worried about hat hair from your wooly beanie? No worries, there is a dressing up box full of vintage sunhats ready to try on.
Cahoots Presents The Squiffy Picnic, every Saturday and Sunday from 25th October, 2.00-4.30pm. Reservations required.
