This is a very cozy and pleasant place to spend your end of the working day, weeknight or any free minute you dedicated for a nice glass of your favorite drink. B Bars has a variety of coctails, spirits and wines. I had a nice Valpolicella by the glass some time (!) and last weekend was pleased to see Fever... More

I visited B-Bar with couple of friends, and to be honest I was surprised by the variety and creativity of their cocktail list. There is something for every body there, whether you like sweet, fruity, spicy, strong, or virgin cocktails. I tried couple of cocktails made with Balzams, which is a local liquor made with currants. They were all rather... More

Dropped by for lunch and shared a bottle of wine, the wine tasting plate and the King shrimps. Ok price, but the asparagus was overcooked, the cheese tasteless and the butter frozen. Not something I would recommend, many way better choices nearby.
