Lily Blacks ticks all the boxes for a classy cocktail bar in the city for the discerning drinker. If you want loud music, a very young crowd, or drink specials this is not the place for you. The staff were happy to take a booking...More

The menu is rather limited (but detailed). We received excellent service from the bartender, who was attentive to our palate preferences and curated 3 creative drinks. 👍🏽👍🏽

Found Lily Blacks around the corner of the hotel I'm staying; very nice menu - very nice cocktail! Easy and cosy and environment. Recommended.

If you're searching for something quirky to drink, you're sure too find it here. Unusual combinations are certainly worth exploring but old favorites are also available. On the more expensive side tho ($20-$30 for a cocktail). Nice vibe.

Great cocktails, awesome collection of spirits. Toilets communal and the hand soap is up at about 6" and shoots out at you and hits your chest. Nice.
