Drink Prohibition Style at Bourne and Hollingsworth

If you like to pretend alcohol is still illegal, Bourne and Hollingsworth is the place for you. Tucked away in a basement on a corner in Soho, one of the most busy drinking areas in town, you could have Google maps telling you were there and still not find it.

Even if you manage to find it, you will be unlikely to get a table without booking in advance this small but perfectly formed speak-easy fills up quickly.

Once inside, with wallpaper hanging off the walls, mismatched furniture and kitsch tablecloths, you could have just stepped into Granny's house.

The cocktail menu is gin-heavy and they are given incognito names such as 'Stormy Mug' and served in tea-cups prohibition-style at around 6/8.

On that particular evening, revellers from the chap Olympiad piled in dressed up-to-the-nines, Dahrling, the DJ spun some tracks and the quaint bar transformed into a roaring 20s party.
