For whatever draws you into Soho; be it art, music, theatre, or the more risqué underbelly of the area, be sure to take in some of its bar culture too. Whether you are looking to people-watch over your pint or step back in time, drink with vampires or sip something sophisticated far from the madding crowd – here are a few Soho bars you must tick off the to-do list.
Situated in the disused Kingly Court underground station, which was used as an air-raid shelter, Cahoots is a step back into the swinging 1940’s and bursting with Blitz-spirit. Decorated with sandbags and tube carriage seating, the bar serves ‘Dig for Victory’ inspired cocktails, using ration book ingredients, such as powdered milk, treacle and beetroot. Music policy favours the Jive and Lindy hop, and there are regular immersive events.
