Since opening our doors in February 1997 we always had a simple aim with nine bar, to be somewhere we’d want to drink! We felt the most important mix of things for a successful bar to get right were the drinks, the music, and the service, hopefully we manage it more often than not!

We wanted it to always be fun, relaxed and welcoming, never taking itself too seriously, but absolutely committed to providing the best service and quality of drinks. We know there are plenty of places you can buy a pint but it’s the people that make a place. We’re always up for a party, but still somewhere you can sit on your own and just read the papers.
