Busy, upbeat cocktail bar taking centre stage on Hanover Street with daily live DJs.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

99 Hanover Street is a steadfast feature of the city centre drinking scene, with live DJs and entertainment in quirky, opulent surroundings. The wittily themed cocktail directory ranges from Would I Lychee You to Bitch Peas! (that’s not a joke, there are actual peas in it) or enjoy a harmonious sharer from Tanq Sinatra and I Did It Mai Way. Other drinks options are presented in a series of informative bar and pie charts. Service is obviously important to the team behind the bar, while table packages offer groups a little exclusivity and remove the pesky inconvenience of having to get up to go to the bar at all.
