Time Out says: I've only dropped by for an after-work tipple, but it feels like a family gathering (albeit a lot more trendy than the ones I'm used to – sorry, mum). In fact, it's more of a family fiesta, with woven lampshades, wicker furniture, hanging baskets and low lighting, all making this feel like a covert jungle hangout in Costa Rica – one with a plush finish, mind. Apt that it should have the feel of such a green-looking country, since the bar operate on a no-waste policy. read more
Social Concierge says: Set in a Victorian basement close to London Bridge, Nine Lives is a perfectly placed bar for those seeking a post-work date night option. Unassuming from the outside, there's only a subtle neon sign to indicate what lies beneath. As you enter, immediately take the stairs down to a dark and intimate drinking den. The décor, a perfect blend of Havana Cool and Penthouse Luxe. Think wooden trellises and bamboo partitions juxtaposed by marble tables and exposed brick work. Each element designed perfectly to create small alcoves of privacy where you can flirty freely, without ever being shut away from everyone else in the room. read more
The London Economic says: On a backstreet close to London Bridge station, Nine Lives has a sense of Prohibition mystery, tucked underground like most of the city's best bars. Sadly, Nine Lives has absolutely no resident cats. Designed by owner and Sweet&Chilli Creative Director Emma Hutchinson, the 100 capacity bar is low-lit with plenty of hanging plants, woven lampshades, marbled fascias and copper bar surfaces. Inside, the space has an almost Colonial style, not unlike that of Oriole under Smithfield Market. read more
London The Inside says: Nine Lives, a new cocktail bar with a conscience, has opened up in London Bridge. Located down a cobbled side street, it's not the easiest to find but it's well worth seeking out. The basement bar is a cool space, its interiors almost as cool as its hipster guests and staff – almost. The bar operates a zero waste policy reusing as much as possible from the drink ingredients before finally turning anything left into compost for their garden. read more
