Howdy readers! Are you up for some Wild West action right in the heart of London’s Chelsea? Moonshine Saloon invites you to spend an evening drinking amongst fellow cowboys in a clandestine saloon. It is an immersive experience where you will be part of a cowboy story while you sip incredible cocktails. It’s also BYOB — you’ll need to bring 35cl of your favorite spirit per two guests and the bartenders will craft three to four delicious drinks. This is how it went for us.
Upon arrival, we were directed to the local tailor and provided with a Stetson hat, jacket and cowboy bandana. We then entered the saloon and got comfy in our table.
I heard about Mr Foggs House of Botanicals opening and I thought: a House of Botanicals? I need to visit right away! After doing some research, I learned two things. First, there are many Mr Foggs, and this is the newest one. Second, Mr Foggs is part of the same group as the must-visit iconic bar Cahoots so this made me even more eager.
Upon arrival to Mr Foggs House of Botanicals which is located on a corner of Fitzrovia, we were greeted by the lovely doormen and let in. We quickly learned that the downstairs area of the bar is walk in, while upstairs is reserved for bookings. Both areas have different cocktail menus. The downstairs area is filled of lush greenery and nice people chatting, and most are standing up. If you were to try and imagine how the area looks like, it is a little bit like if there were a bar inside of the Kew Gardens’ greenhouse. If you look up, you’ll find bird cages filled with plant and flowers which hang from the ceiling.
My dad & sis came to visit me a few weeks ago and I was faced with the task to look for things to do in the evening. And then, I found Cahoots!
Cahoots it’s a 1946 tube-themed cocktail bar. A tubed theme bar and going back in time sounded good enough! We Londoners love immersive experiences, so I decided to take the plunge and made a reservation.
