Neighborhood: Terézváros
Description: A Daiquiri we serve with mango, a Cosmopolitan is like Sex and the city and the Caipirinha is really spicy. If all this is still not enough for you senses to be tempted, then we shake spirits with caribian rose peppercorn, thai lemongrass or the one with the vanilia and cardamoned. Now, you have to admit, it is hightime to try one, isn't it?

“Okay bar but lacking atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nice bar, good cocktails but lacking atmosphere when we visited around 10pm on a Friday night. Perhaps we were just early but the lacking atmosphere and really dark area we were seated in meant we only stayed for one drink.

“Caution: Only for people who think they are as cool as this place thinks it is”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Me and my girlfriend visited the boutiq bar for some nice cocktails and perhaps something to eat because we saw that it had gotten very good reviews here on tripadvisor, but maybe they didn't read the "welcome message".
The first page in the menu are instruction on how you as customers are supposed to act, look and be. Are you not a "pretty girl"? don't bother, they are clear about that.
Perhaps the most ridiculous is that they describe themselves as some type of obscure type of bar, comparing themselves with apparently hip places in london and new york, it reminds me of the younger kid in school trying to be cool like the older kids, I should have taken a picture!

The third thing that's not nice to read as a costumer after reading about how cool the owner thinks he/she is, is instructions on how to act, like people ordering a tequila sunrise should get a life (the bar is a bit too cool for that drink, but I didn't look up if they actually served it or not).
Then it says something in the lines of "Guys remember, all girls are not here for THAT..." which would have pissed me off even if I was single, as if all guys need a slap on the nose with a newspaper like a dog not to harrass girls?

What this place needs to learn is to instead of giving normal customers a big lecturing before they can even order is to hmmm maybe say that to the people who actually ARE causing these problems? Restaurants with shirt and tie don't have that in bold letters in the menu, they simply tell the ones who come there in dirty jeans that "we wear shirt and tie here".

There was more stupid things on there too but to summerize, this place (at least the menu) feels like it was created by a 13-year old girl who watches too much sex and the city. All around we both got too offended so we left without ordering anything.

Pretty much a "must visit" if you are in Budapest. Really great experience, the cocktails were very nice and the service was awesome.

“Amazing cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

This bar has simply amazing cocktails.
They have a nice, big selection of cocktails in their menu; most of them I never tried before, they are really unique. If somehow, you are not happy with the options in the menu, the barmen are really flexible and they are ready to prepare something special for you upon your request.

“great cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

we had great cocktails, from the very helpful bartender.
The second round was ordered not from the menu, but it was a made-up cocktail based on our preferences!
