Cahoots bar is a must for anyone with a love for anything vintage and is one of the best places to take clients in London if you’re looking to impress them with somewhere both intimate and fabulously unique. Inspired by the 1940’s, it makes you forget that you are actually in modern day Soho. And if a 40’s themed bar still isn’t special enough for you, this one is disguised as a tube station, and the theme continues once you enter the platform, to an underground vintage tube ride.

The decor is all themed accordingly, with tube seats, and suitcase tables, and vintage galore adoring this disused underground station. Our recommendation is to take your client on a Saturday, were they offer their Squiffy Picnic, with the poison of your choice and a picnic basket brimming with uniquely British treats. If that wasn’t enough, every Saturday they provide a classic British music experience, with swing music and war era themed costuming and sounds. This is the ideal unique place to take a client to show them what being British really is.

From the creators who brought you Cahoot’s, comes Bart’s, another period themed staple of the city which is one of the best places to take clients in London. Their motto, ‘speakeasy, drink hard’. Set in the 1920’s as a prohibition style bar set up American gangsters, the bar well and truly commits to its theme. Nestled in Sloane Avenue secretly hidden as a block of apartments, to keep the cops from raiding the place a password is required on entry (P.S. don’t worry, if you book with us, we’ll make sure you know it!). With their menu intricately designed as a comic book, it shows off their collection of signature cocktails, which comes with a hefty price tag, but pack a punch and are well worth it!

If the sharers aren’t your thing, you could go for one of their many exquisitely designed individual cocktails, of which you have plenty to choose from. However, if you don’t want to step out of your comfort zone too much, they offer a full selection of all the classic cocktails, from Bloody Mary’s to Cosmos.

If you’re a bit peckish, they also offer an intimate but delicious selection of Japanese food. Now, if for some reason you still don’t think this is enough for your client, you could take them to their weekly Criminali-Tea event on Saturday. This weekly event, disguised as an adventure of secret messaged to sneak in and avoid the cops, is the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon, and once you make it in, you are rewarded with their illicit liquors and a selection of their teapots with a twist and classic snacks.

But they warn you, the cops are always on the lookout, so be prepared for a raid!
