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.

Great cocktails (especially at £4 during happy hour!) The fried chicken and chicken wings both amazing. Definitely worth a visit if you're in need of some comfort food.
Tried Joes for the first time Friday early evening of last week and I absolutely loved it. Great tasting food and reasonably priced taking into consideration where it's located. Great atmosphere, busy but no rammed. Can't wait to go again which will probably be next week.
I can't say that I have eaten here before but the fried chicken sure does smell good. However, this is my go-to Covent Garden bar, both for pre and post dinner tipples. At Joe's they really embrace all things Southern American, the food, the booze, the tunes and even the bar staff are all dressed in lumberjack shirts; the bar evokes a very fun feel. Their drinks list is extensive, boasting a huge range of Southern beers and exclusive cocktails which (starting at £5) are very reasonable and utterly delicious.
Cool vibe, and great service. The downstairs space seems a lot better than the upstairs space (where we were), so I imagine it's possible to enjoy it even more.
Delicious Mac n' Cheese, chicken and great for a team night out! The cocktail making trolley was a crowd pleaser and the staff were all super friendly! Recommend for that winter warmer comfort food!
Thank you to all of the team at Joe's for such a great evening, not only was the food great but we absolutely loved our cocktail making session hosted by Gabriele at the table. I am now a complete convert to Espresso Martini's x
