Hong Kong based restaurant Duddell’s opened its doors in London Bridge in November 2017. In keeping with the traditions of its Michelin-starred Hong Kong counterpart, Duddell’s showcases authentic Cantonese dishes and hand-crafted dim sum, using only the freshest, premium ingredients sourced in the UK and further afield. Housed in the historic St Thomas’ Church, Michaelis Boyd (Soho Farmhouse, Soho House Berlin) has designed the interior with the aim to maximise the daylight and heritage elements of the Grade II-listed building – honouring original features such as the ground floor alter, whilst exploring contemporary twists. Duddell’s will also features an impressive standalone bar with a dynamic wine list of old and new world wines as well as classic and innovative Asian-inspired cocktails. Duddell’s Hong Kong was conceived to create a cultural and social destination for people with an appreciation for the arts, providing an inspiring backdrop where people could meet, eat, drink and socialize. The London restaurant follows suit, reflecting its creative roots in a menu packed with ingredient-led dishes that highlight texture and technique.

Nine Lives is the latest neighbourhood bar to grace London Bridge, behind the doors to an old Victorian basement you’ll find a ‘tropicalifornication’ vibe & 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 looks at this concept across the venue from the products they use & the recycling of waste through to the sourcing of equipment & furniture from vintage & second hand sources. All the waste that is created is sent to the venue’s compost system, where it is broken down and then used to fuel the venue’s herb and vegetable garden. Their music is as obsessed over as their drinks. In keeping with the ethos of salvation, their sound system is repurposed from a beautiful rig which until 3 years ago powered London Bridge’s legendary club, Cable. The sound it rewards them with is rich & warm, perfect for some after-dark drinking & dancing. Every Saturday, Nine Lives host a weekly party with a selection of DJs from some of London’s hottest labels – you won’t hear sounds like this on a sound-system like this with drinks like this anywhere else in London. Open Tuesday – Saturday from 5PM. ninelivesbar.com
