We are a speakeasy (hidden bar) with a high-end cocktail menu, our head bartender is Eric van Beek, from the Netherlands and was chosen as the best bartender in the world in the cocktail contest of Bacardi Legacy in 2018, therefore the customer experience is impressive when trying our menu.

* We have a tolerance of 15 minutes, if we haven't received any notification we are forced to give the table away.
* We hold a 90-minute seating, to give everyone the right experience.

    Divino! Vale muchísimo la pena. Solo cuidado en la zona: no tiene estacionamiento o valet así que hay que batallar con el parquímetro o los vieneviene. Pero el bar es 100% recomendable

    Pese a que el lugar es pequeño se presta par buen ambiente. Todo me agrado, luces, música, servicio, y tragos. Solo agrego que contesten los teléfonos cuando se les marca. Tuve qe marcar más de 7 veces para obtener una respuesta. Sería todo.

    El lugar es increíble, y el servicio es excelente desde que pones un pie en el bar. Es difícil decidir cuál drink es mejor, probamos 6 diferentes y a todos les ponemos 10. Por algo está en el lugar 11 en la lista de los 50 mejores bares del mundo. Felicidades al staff y a los bartender!!!

    Amazing cocktails and the servers were excellent, but the host was rude. We arrived late because of traffic. I tried to call three times en route to let them know that we were coming but no one answered. I left a voicemail, but they said my reservation was canceled because they hadn’t received my call. In the end they seated us, but not without unnecessary unpleasantness at the door.

    Es una experiencia única, es coctelería que lleva un proceso para cada bebida. No son bebidas tradicionales, hay que ir con mente abierta a descubrir nuevos sabores.

    Great service, cocktails were amazing. They should add food/snacks to the menu. No wine, limited spirit selection. The place was small but it was a fun experience.
