    Our favorite find in Aruba while visiting on our honeymoon! Apotek is such a gem!! The bar has such an awesome speakeasy vibe and the cocktails are amazing! The pharmacy theme is so playful and fun. We enjoyed having the “pharmacists” make drinks for us based on our simple order of the type of alcohol and taste (sweet, bitter, sour, etc.). We loved it here so much that we went 3 different times and we’re surprised and pleased with each perfectly crafted cocktail! Watching our pharmacist, Armando, expertly mix each drink was so fun and interesting and we loved the explanations of why he chose each element of the drink. Overall, Apotek is a must visit for a late night drink- thank you for making us feel welcome and for the top notch cocktails!!!! xoxo

    We visited from our cruise docked in Aruba. It was our one place that we had to visit. We envisioned a little more, such as more customers and for the place to be a little more lively. The ambiance was amazing. We expected a little more of a variety of foods, but the drinks were amazing as well. Thank you so much for having and accommodating us.

    First time in Aruba, love checking out speakeasy’s whenever my fiancé and I travel. Love everything about the space, the style of the whole place, the drinks, and how welcoming the staff made us feel. When I return to Aruba, definitely coming back but also telling friends about it as well.

    We had such an amazing time. Who knew that Aruba would have such an amazing speak easy. It’s worth going over and over. Armando was our “pharmacist” and he did not disappoint he made the experience fun and tasty. Those were literally some of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. Highly recommend. Don’t think twice. Sit at the bar and ask for Armando.

    What a find! Absolutely loved it - cocktails were on point, the mixologists were creative, relatable, fun, and crafty....everything you want in someone making your high end cocktails. And the patrons were super cool! I know that's not a direct reflection of the establishment itself, but when cool people are all attracted to the same place, it does kinda validate the establishments ability to define an identity, attract like minded people and provide an environment for those people to connect well. We'll DEFINITELY be back!

    Best experience for custom cocktail creations and best experienced from 6pm to 10pm! The bartenders play with your desired flavor profiles and build unique creations for each guest, including artistic garnishes. No food available, and they say that in your reservation confirmation. They are all about the cocktails, but do have a wine cellar and wine cocktails too. After 10pm, Apotek becomes more of a small club concept with simpler, speedier drinks.

    Hermando did a great job explaining everything to us, making our drinks, and taking care of us. We wish they were open more nights because we’re only here for four days. The ambience and concept are on point- reminds me of a place we went in Vegas. Shocked a place this cool is on an island! The employees have been trained really well and want the place to succeed. You can tell. Anyhow- highly recommend, even though stuff is expensive. The cocktails are so well rounded and crafted it is a 100% worth it.

      Apotek Speakeasy is the most incredible experience in Aruba, it is like nothing you have had before and you will love everything about it! Our Pharmacist, Armando, is the Worldclass Master. He uses a combination of tastes (sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami) and senses (sight, touch, smell, and auditory) to create unique, imaginative, and delicious cocktails like nothing you have had before. Watching the Pharmacists create and present these masterpieces is like theater! We visited Apotek three times during our recent Aruba trip. Armando asked us a few basic questions about what we like in a cocktail and then he created unique masterpieces for us. Pharmacist Armando, Pharmacist Junior, and the entire staff are so talented, personable, and sensational! Make a reservation and go see them tonight. Tell them Ron and Ed send greetings and best wishes and we can't wait to visit them again! Bon Salud! Un bon vuelo!

    Although I enjoyed my drink, the place was very loud due to someone had reserved half the place for a birthday party. Was hoping for a chill evening and would have stayed for more than one drink if it wasn’t like being at a night club.

    This is our favorite spot to have a quality cocktail! The owner and management team do a fantastic job with training their mixologists. They put a lot of time and knowledge into crafting each cocktail by the order. We recommend this place as a must visit on the island. Interesting backstory and decorated perfectly. You won’t want to miss this place when visiting Aruba. 🇦🇼🇦🇼🇦🇼

    Great hidden gem in Aruba in downtown Oranjestad. Little tough to find but look for the lightbulb in the tree (classic Speakeasy signal!). Drinks are craft cocktails and the mixologists are amazing. Junior is a true artesian and a master at his craft. We went twice during our stay on the island and will deff be back on our next trip. BTW... see if you can find the hidden room and passages there... its pretty cool!

    This place is an absolute gem!! My husband and I as well as another couple were staying at Renaissance and came here 4 of the 7 nights in Aruba. It’s not your cheesy nightclub, it’s a lounge with great ambience and a staff focused on the cocktail craft, creating delicious drinks in an easy and relaxed setting. We loved Armando, his peanut whiskey cocktail was the best cocktail we had all week. Grey, the hostess, was attentive to ensure our water glasses stayed full and Junior was friendly and came up with random cocktails. Thank you team Apotek, we are thrilled we were able to visit!!
