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.


The Merry Wife

Inspired by The Merry Wives of Windsor

‘Come, gentlemen, I hope we shall drink down all unkindness’

– The Merry Wives of Windsor: Act 1, Scene 1

Going to one of the Royal Shakespeare Company's shows (or just looking for excuse to be merry)? Try our special cocktail inspired by The Merry Wives of Windsor. Crafted by our head mixologist, it combines gin, Aperol and prosecco with lemon and a dash of bubblegum.
