A secret bar in an disused underground station? That sounds right up my alley, I thought.
After trying to pop in (unsuccessfully), I finally went the smart route and made a reservation for Cahoots, a bar I had heard so much about since moving to London.
Cahoots is a glamorous, 40s themed bar in the disused Kingly Court underground station. As you enter down the former tube entrance, you’ll feel transported to a different era.
The cocktail list, printed as a 1946 Kingly Court Herald newspaper, is expansive with over 60 cocktails to choose from.
The bar is inspired by the post-Blitz era when cocktails and swing music were the thing.
I know I certainly enjoyed my cocktail – a milky and whiskey flavored drink served with a chocolate dipped cookie sprinkled with powdered sugar.
Are you ready to get your swing on?
