This kitchen and cocktail bar - previously Joe's Southern Kitchen, and before that, Navajo Joe - sits in the heart of Covent Garden in an enormous converted warehouse. The bar sweeps down the length of the double-height building and boasts one of the largest collections of tequilas, mezcals and rums in London. There's a follow up now too, in Kentish Town.
The food menu promises classic Southern cooking. Expect, then, dishes such as cajun shrimp with a black bean stew, jalapeno poppers, chilli made with slow-braised beef brisket, mac 'n' cheese and blackened catfish fillet with collard greens. Wings, burgers and Big Apple hot dogs also feature.
The bar downstairs, Cocktail Baby, offers house tunes alongside French martinis, mojitos, amaretto sours and cocktails with a Southern slant, like the smokey joe - Jim Beams Devil's Cut bourbon with tobacco liquor and barrel bitters.
The downstairs bar Cocktail Baby plays Southern American music and serves up a cocktail list full of original takes on the classics. The main spirits are bourbon, rye, tequila and mezcal, of which there are literally hundreds (take some time to try a few, it'll be so worth it). There is also a long list of American beers if you'd prefer. It pretty much guarantees to provide an American experience unlike any other bar in the capital.
