Evans & Peel Detective Agency

On passing an inconspicuous black door marked 'Evans & Peel Detective Agency' you would be forgiven for thinking that you'd stumbled across an associate of Sherlock Holmes.
After confirmation of our 'appointment' via the entry buzzer we wandered down to the dimly lit office, 
but this wasn't just any old office.
Marked maps adorned the walls, an aid to solving the latest case,
while an old typewriter sat poised to produce the next classified 'document' -
 Detective Chris Peel sat before us, magnifying glass in hand.

In true cliché he carefully maneuvered the Harry Potter-esque bookcase to reveal a hidden door - which after a childhood of religiously watching Scooby Doo, we have to admit was verging on heart-stopping!
Behind, a beautifully themed basement bar awaits...
Bare bulbs hang from the ceiling, a radiator doubles as a beer tap & bottles are served disguised in brown paper bags.
We were walked through the extensive cocktail menu by one of the resident mixologists, who recommended our first two cocktails based on our favourite tastes.
The food menu consists of old American favourites, which are all smoked in house.
We greedily decided upon 'The Whole Caboodle' - a combination of three small plates and four yummy sliders.
Dessert was also too tempting to dismiss - and with it another round of cocktails..
we opted for 'Blondie & Brownie' which was served warm with a caffeine chaser - a shot glass of iced coffee sorbet. 

"Excellent!" I cried. "Elementary," said he.
