Just not our place to be. Many others love it but not us. 2 waitresses stood at end of bar and stared at us the entire time we were there. Drinks were very good!!
Only had drinks, they were great. Awesome vibe to the place and a must visit in Aruba if you enjoy craft cocktails.
Delicious and wonderful service.
Best drinks because they’re so unique! Small place but so good
Such a cool place
Spoiled forever for custom cocktails. Tell Ramiro you would like to feel pretty and he’ll make a cocktail for that.
Absolutely love the drinks. The staff is friendly and helpful. Nelson was very accommodating and Kim(?) very attentive. It has a low key vibe that harkens to another age. A welcome new find in Aruba.
Staff was very friendly, drinks were amazing.
This is truly an experience like no other. Mixologist Ramiro wowed us with amazing cocktails. The live music was sublime. We truly enjoyed ourselves.
Reservations went very smoothly. Ambiance is amazing, it’s the true experience of being in a Speakeasy. Cocktails were great and rum selection was outstanding
Fantastic bartenders, real-deal cocktail bar in Oranjestad
Really cool bar and mixologist was in point! He created the best drinks for us. Had the best shot of my life there too! I wouldn’t consider it a speakeasy and it’s easy to find but still a cool place. Smaller and more of a chill vibe. We didn’t have the food there and not sure if they offer it. A must go for people visiting Aruba!
Best cocktails and atmosphere on the island! The mixologists and hostess were outstanding 👌👌👌
We wanted to celebrate our “little cousin” finally turning 21, and this place did not disappoint! Incredible cocktails, hand-crafted to our specific tastes and preferences. Beautiful presentation and absolutely delicious! The whole speakeasy vibe was wonderful (you have to ring the doorbell to get in) and the decor inside was great. We will definitely return on our next trip!
Definitely the best place for cocktails on the island. No watered down drinks like on Palm Beach. Nice setup right in the middle of downtown. We really enjoyed the amazing creation of our favorite and surprise cocktails. The 2 guys behind the bar a real artists. Will be back next time when in Aruba.
Congrats, great job!
Everything was absolutely amazing. It is definitely worth trying various drinks. I can’t wait to come back and visit again. Thank you for the amazing experience
We were promptly seated, memu was explained, drinks are ok to good but not great as we expected. The place has a good atmosphere and vibe, the only downfall were the 2 cocktail servers, they have no liquor or cocktail knowledge whatsoever, working in the Caribbean and not knowing anything about brands of rum your serve or you have available is not acceptable. When ordering freehand special drinks there was no explanation provided what the bartender created. At $15 to $20 a cocktail this can be expected. The servers would just wing their response on any questions regarding liquor and just said we use topshelf liquors for all our drinks. Will I go back? Maybe, maybe not.
Honestly, these are the best drinks in Aruba. We went two nights in a row and tasted basically the whole menu. The hostess is half the experience; she’s so beautiful and really sets the tone for the experience. The owners work the bar and make all of the cocktails expertly. If you visit Aruba you MUST visit this bar, you will not be disappointed.
Food menu was limited but good quality. The atmosphere was great. It really gave us the feeling of being in a speakeasy. The drinks were fantastic and they were delivered to the table with quite the presentation. You can order drinks off the menu or have one custom created for you.
Amazing bar with equally amazing craft cocktails. Service on spot. Great ambiance.
Best cocktails I’ve ever had, both mixologist were amazing!!
Great fun and really nice drinks. Staff were very friendly and explained the process.
Will visit again
This is a swanky hidden gem!! The cocktails were amazing and the staff was exceptional!! Highly recommend !!
Must go! Great cocktails!
Very fun place! The cocktails are well thought out.
Very good drinks, great service, very friendly, would go again
The staff and drinks were in!!
First, there is no food offered, just cocktails so the food rating was required, but N/A.
This was a cool place to visit. The cocktail presentation is fabulous (I totally want a bucket of dried pineapple that was used as an accent, so tasty!). Of course, speakeasy in the US has a bit of a different flair since many are the old ones that were real speakeasies at some point. We enjoyed the experience.
The one drawback for me was the amount of incense burning. I do not fair well with the smells. If that wasn't there we would have stayed for a second cocktail.
Also, if you can, sit at the bar or as close as possible. Watching the cocktail creating is half the fun!
0/10 would NOT recommend. I’m vacationing in Aruba and did my research on places to visit & Apotheek came up as a spot I should visit, but my experience left absolutely nothing to brag about. It’s my last night in Aruba & I arrived about 25 minutes early for my reservation & luckily I was seated. I was served water and that’s absolutely it. After inquiring if there was outdoor seating with an employee he told me to ask the hostess. A waiter/waitress nor the hostess took my order for 35 minutes. I observed several parties (3/4) be seated and their orders taken before I decided to leave. In my opinion this establishment isn’t POC friendly, so beware.
We loved our first visit so much, we had to go the next night. Best cocktails we had on the island! Andrea was wonderful!!! Will def be back!!!
True cocktails!! Excellent experience with quality mixologists and great service!!
This place is a secret gold mine!! I went in to try and came back 3 times after. The drinks are incredible, the staff are the BEST. This will forever be my favorite spot in all of Aruba.
I wish the bar tender told me it costs $3 more to get my drink in a smoke box
Thanks for the 5 stars! The price is stated in our menu, but we apologize that you were not aware. Hope to see you back again soon!
Great find in Aruba!! Mixologist were amazing the music was so fun and service was spot on!! A nice hangout for cocktails and fun! Cant wait to come back after covid curfew is over! Thanks Apotheek for a great time and wow cocktails!
Wonderful friendly people, amazing drinks. Definitely try the custom cocktail 🍸 experience. Beautiful hostess 🙃
Very stylish and unique spot for amazing craft cocktails! Truly a hidden gem! We came across this place during our vacation and tried it out because the drinks looked super cool and ended up coming back every night for the remainder of our trip. Everything from the plethora of to-die-for drinks, to the cleverly themed decor, to the attention to detail in every aspect of the place is carefully and perfectly thought through making it like nothing and no other place you’ve ever experienced. The staff was amazing too and a big part of the reason we loved this place. Also, like everything in Aruba, this business was very adherent to COVID safety precautions and we felt totally safe and comfortable. When you ring the doorbell to this modern-day old-fashioned speakeasy, you’ll be greeted by the drop-dead gorgeous hostess who will take you over to your table inside the bar/apothecary where the prescriptions are THE best drinks made with only top-shelf liquor by THE best mixologist. We had the opportunity to chat with everyone there and learned that the mixologist studied his craft for a decade prior to working here—and, boy, does it shows! The drinks, which are all absolutely delicious and beautifully made, vastly surpassed our already high expectations. Each drink has its own witty name and is made with equally as much thought put into it. And did I mention how cool they look? Seriously, I’ve been to the best bars all over the world, and this place is right up there with them. The menu is incredibly affordable as well. Especially for such a high-end joint and high-end drinks. I almost selfishly don’t want to write this review so I can keep this place to myself when I go back on my next trip to Aruba, but it’s just too good to keep a secret. Plus, the staff truly deserve the recognition. I know I’m raving to the point where this review must sound like fake, but I promise, we just really loved it that much. A MUST GO in Aruba! Apotheek is just what the Doctor ordered!
Awesome trying new drinks
If in Aruba you must go here! It was true speakeasy and our server and bar tender were so warm and welcoming
We came here on vacation - and I can’t say fast enough to get yourself there! We had four drinks of different varieties, they were all amazing, creative and delicious. The staff are all very nice and friendly. Perfect place to go before or after dinner one night! They also offered us a small menu, but we’d already had dinner plans.
Andrea made us feel very welcome and special. Nelson made out of control good drinks . Try the smoked old fashion. Best cocktail bar on the island. Don’t leave the island without this experience.
