Martinis and cocktails at The Birdcage

Having watched many episodes of Mad Men recently, I had a bit of a hankering for vodka martinis this weekend.

As such, I gathered some good friends and headed into Norwich over the Bank Holiday weekend.

We decided to try The Birdcage on Pottergate because I have heard many good things.

On Saturday night it was packed with people, but it still had a nice atmosphere which was a surprise. We also managed to get a table and get to the bar, which is always a good start.

My hopes for a good drink were not disappointed at all. It was the best vodka martini that I’ve had in a while – it was well-mixed and dry, the way I like it. It also came with an olive (some places don’t do that any more, which is a crime), which slightly gave the drink a salty edge.

The atmosphere in The Birdcage is very comfortable, with eclectic decor and low lighting. It even has a resident cat, which managed to distract me for about an hour.

Give The Birdcage a go if you want to try something a bit different.

Hi, I'm Lucy. I've lived in Norfolk since 2001 and in that time I've grown to love this fine county. From the city of Norwich, to the countryside villages and sweeping coastline, there's so much to explore and hope to share my experiences with you here.
