The Black Cherry has managed to grow and evolve with the popularity of Lordship Lane. Among the first to get the postcode licking its lips with an impressive cocktail list, the trendy gaffe now boasts a new menu and chill-out space out the back.
On top of an expansive cocktail list that forces the drinker to change their mind as they turn every page there are some beautiful and rare wines, beers and spirits on offer. Fresh on the menu are the shared cocktail bowls, but be warned…
The chef has scribbled together a new menu that seems to have caught the eye of both the afternoon crowd and commuters. The buy one get one free on finger platters and the Dusk Deals - which consist of a drink and a dish for low prices - are among the latest incentives. Sunday lunches are also proving a hit.
The funky decor mixed with the extravagant lighting is in-keep with the trendy 'vibe' that oozes from the bar. The high chairs and tables at the entrance provides a good view of the passing traffic. The Mezzanine level hosts the busy bar area and the front room boasts a more leisurely and comfortable array of seating areas.
The warm interior and soulful music gives off an inviting feel. The relaxed atmosphere rubs off on the customers.
Angela Rush - Owner
We offer something different to the rest of the Lane. We have a mixed clientele that catch up with during the week and party on the weekend.
Vanina Andrad - Waitress
I love the crowd we get in here, they're the best thing about any place I think. There is a good, chilled out vibe on weekdays.
Angela Bugess - Regular
I love the chilled-out atmosphere. It is really relaxing and I like the fact that I can come in here alone, with my boyfriend or to meet friends.
