Located on the first floor, the Martini Bar offers views over the foyers and lakeside and is perfect for a pre-performance drink.

Treat yourself to one of London's finest cocktails at the Barbican Martini Bar. We serve a selection of classic Martinis and cocktails as well as champagne, beer and wine. 

The Martini Bar was created in 2012 to cater to discerning Martini drinkers visiting the Designing 007 exhibition, and has been producing an exciting range of cocktails, both shaken and stirred, ever since.
