Its like stepping back in time when you visit here. Hidden away in the secret basement is this den of sin !!! The museum is the bar filled with memorabilia and things you can buy. You can not go and not try traditional absinthe. Absinthe is really having a come back and even Liverpool has a trendy absinthe bar these... More

While we arrived way too early to have a drink in the actual bar section (bummer!), the gift shop had many unique, value priced items. Go for the shopping if not for the drinking!

The museum is actually a small bar laid out with absinthe memorabilia. You can buy absinthe to drink and it's worth going to get the whole experience of dripping water through the sugar lumps into the absinthe. There is also a selection of old style hats you can try on. Worth a visit but beware of how strong the absinthe... More

Street level is an olive oil and absinthe store with tourist gifts, down stairs is a one room bar covered in historical pieces relating to absinthe. We went down stairs and waited 30 minutes, no bartender. Not worth any effort to visit, skip it!

This is a rather touristy place but if you are in town for a few days, it is worth checking out after diner for the experience. This unique place is a nod to the history of Absinthe and you experience first hand the traditional way to drink it. We stopped by one night after dinner and tried the absinthe during... More

The Museum is actually a very small basement bar with a large selection of absinthe. It has a real honky-tonk feel, as there was a good piano player the night we visited. Be sure to check out the hats.

Museum? More like a bar with some antiques in it! But in saying that, its nice to enter a cellar like bar, quite small, but with a charming atmosphere. A large selection of Absinthe available. The staff were friendly and the manager was very informative! When its full and everyone is drinking, the atmosphere is lots of fun. If in... More
