Nine Lives is a little neighbourhood bar off Bermondsey Street, serving some of the best cocktails in London! Hidden in a Victorian basement with just a well light sign and doorman to indicate the location. Nine Lives offers great vibes, a killer soundtrack and amazing cocktails. The decor is best described as “Tropicalifornication” with big plants, bamboo, outdoor furniture inside offering a very summery style.
The menu is very well put together. The menu has a page for each spirit. For each spirit, they have a classic cocktail and three versions of it. For Vodka, for example, they have an Espresso Martini cocktail. Espresso martinis are my favourite cocktail! They have a classic cocktail version, a Nine Lives version and a version inspired by a world-famous mixologist. In particular, I also love the team at Nine Lives. As a regular favourite bar of mine, my boyfriend and I have got to know the team. The bartenders are really friendly and extremely talented. My boyfriend loves getting a bespoke cocktail designed to his taste which they are exceptional at doing. Food wise, they have partnered with Pizza Pilgrims so you can also enjoy delicious pizzas with your drinks.
Overall I love Nine Lives, and highly recommend for any cocktail connoisseur like myself.
