The original Cahoots bar on Soho’s Kingly Street takes cues from other immersive theatre venues. Wooden escalators lead downstairs where drinkers can take in the themed-decor, all set to an era-appropriate soundtrack of 40s jazz and rock ‘n’ roll. One room is even set up to look like a train carriage.
Customers have flocked to the crowd-pleasing bar, enjoying the eight-page long cocktail menu served in hip flasks, old milk bottles and tin mugs.
Cahoots: The Ticket Hall & Control Room, Soho
Expanding the Cahoots empire, the scoundrels behind the original location are opening a second cocktail bar just across the road on Kingly Street. While the original underground drinking spot is purely subterranean, Cahoots: The Ticket Hall & Control Room is a two-storey experience.
Have a quintessentially British meal on the ground floor which is made to look like a vintage ticket hall complete with a station kiosk. Dine on some classic dishes including pie & mash, and fish finger sandwiches, or try the cuisine of the nation’s allies across the pond with American meals like a Sloppy Joe, and chicken & waffles.
The new Cahoots location will serve a cocktail menu of experimental themed drinks
Those who can acquire a ‘clock-in pass’ (Cahoots lingo for booking a reservation) can gain access to the control room hidden below, which hosts live entertainment, movie evenings and quiz nights. Drinkers can order experimental cocktails like ‘Suspicious Activity’, which is served from a waiter’s trench coat, and ‘Knob Twiddler’, which is smuggled to the table via a closed radio box.
Cahoots: The Ticket Hall & Control Room opens on 7 November, but booking a table early is highly recommended if you want to visit what will likely be an extremely popular destination for immersive dining.
