Cocktail Bar
Nine Lives is the latest neighbourhood bar to grace Bermondsey's streets, behind the doors to an old Victorian basement you’ll find a ‘tropicalifornication’ vibe and cosy décor. The concept behind this spot is simple; great tasting drinks in a comfortable environment all made in an ethical way. The bar is the pet project of the team behind Sweet&Chilli. With the sustainable theme proving to be popular among bartenders and chefs, many of London's newest spots use this as a core principle. The team at Nine Lives looked at this concept across the venue from the products they use & the recycling of waste through to the sourcing of equipment and furniture from vintage and second hand sources. Their music is as obsessed over as their drinks. In keeping with the ethos of salvation, their sound system is repurposed from London Bridge’s legendary club, Cable. The sound it rewards them with is rich and warm, perfect for some after-dark drinking & dancing.

Went here for a first date - booked a table for 2 (obviously).

The staff were very polite and accommodating. great selection of drinks covered from cocktails, wine and beers; so covered for anyone's taste.

Brilliant background music that wasn't too loud that we couldn't hear each other but added some great ambiance to the date. Needless to say the date went well and will definitely be coming back.

Really friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable staff. Delicious cocktails, something for everyone! Good vibe, not too quiet but not too loud that you can't talk to your friends.

The staff were incredibly helpful when planning my friends birthday. They were completely fine with us moving around chairs for the area we reserved and the bar tenders were top notch, attentive, super friendly, and had a few tricks up their sleeves. Love this bar, highly recommended!

Very nice ambience and liked the tropical theme. Be advised that there is table set something that I was not initially made aware of. Service can be a little slow and at times it was difficult to find someone to take a drinks order. Wide selection of cocktails. If visiting I would advise that you book a table as it gets a little crowded. Would visit again.

A hidden gem of a bar which serves a wide variety of delicious cocktails created by a mixologist who clearly knows what he is doing. The staff are really attentive and were ready to take our next order as soon as our drinks were empty. There isn't a massive choice of food, serving only pizza but they're made from scratch and delicious! The venue itself has a chilled relaxed atmosphere with lanterns decorated throughout and greenery inside, really cool, great bar and I'll definitely be back soon.

Really enjoyed the space. We didn’t try the food - so please don’t take into account my food review. I couldn’t post a review without it. Drinks were great, service was great.
