Prohibition Style.

Photobucket

This weekend, Traveller and flattie went to a bar in Soho and found themselves in an entirely different era.


Bourne and Hollingsworth is a 'prohibition style' bar where the cocktails are served in tea cups and jam jars alongside cucumber sandwiches and shortbread cookies. Yum! Smaller than your grandma's living room, the bar is fitted with 20's style decor which includes flowery wall-paper, tassle-adorned lamps and various mis-matching chairs and tables.


Having never been to a 'speakeasy' - Bourne and Hollingsworth was a light foray into this dark era for Traveller and she couldn't help but bop in time to the themed music spinning from the turntables.

Wow - a password? That sounds fun! The last drink was a white russian. And Mara, I didn't think there could be anything exciting about a cucumber sandwich - but they are delicious!

what a cool spot. the idea of drinking the good stuff out of tea cups along side the darling little sandwiches is so cute!

This is my kind of place! I don't drink and always feel like an outsider when I'm at a bar and order something non-alcoholic... at least in a bar like this it wouldn't be too obvious! haha!!
