Now open in Shoreditch, Nikki’s is garish and glorious in equal measure.
You’ve got to hand it to the Adventure Bar crew: they’ve got a stellar lineup of badass ladies. First came Waterloo’s Josephine, the don’t-give-a-fuck party girl. Then, retro throwback Gloria stormed into Soho. Now, they’ve added Nikki to the team – and she means business. [Grab their cocktail offer here.]
Inspired by the ‘the nightmare girlfriend your mum warned you about’, Nikki’s is a place where hedonism reigns – they’ve even stuck a bed in the bar for squad posing sessions and other naughtiness.
Haters and hangups should both be left at the door for this one, because you never know where the night will take you. Drawing kitschy influences from the likes of Quentin Tarantino, amongst others, Nikki’s outlandish decor splashed with tropical colour.
Drinks have a definite party-girl flavour, with the Pineapple Negroni and the Toasted Popcorn Sour catching the eye. The XO Espresso Martini sounds especially potent, with a mix of vodka, tequila, Kahlua, and espresso guaranteed to get you up and dancing.
We like it so much, we’ve had a word in Nikki’s ear and got you a sweet deal on drinks. Classy, no?
