Thanks for taking you time to review. Thanks for your comments about our beer. However, I cannot agree with your comments about our cocktails. Our barmen have all obtained a certificate in bartending and mixology. One of them is also a master of sake and is often called by other bars and associations to give lessons. All of the syrups and bitters we use are home made. Our juices (including tomato!) are freshly squeezed. We have our own seasonal cocktail list which changes every 3 months, using fresh seasonal ingredients. We have more than 400 spirits, all proprietary brands, some of them rare and expensive. Our mojito stays pretty close to the original, fresh lime juice, sugar, fresh mint (only lightly crushed) and ice cubes (not crushed ice). To this we add a generous dose of white rum. Maybe this wasn't the mojito you are used to. Many bars use dark rum, crushed ice and heavily crush the lime, sugar and mint. If you prefer it this way then fine. But don't tell the world we make bad cocktails just because you didn't like the mojito we made you. Just say you didn't like it. We have NO beggars coming into our bar. What we have, as do ALL bars and pubs in Milan, is quite a few guys coming in to try to sell lighters or roses or bracelets. Beggars just ask for money. These are poor guys who survive doing this and frankly I feel too sorry for them to stop them trying to eke out a living. From looking at your other reviews it seems the only thing you liked about Milan were McDonalds and MamaBurger. Don't you have hamburgers in Denmark?

My wife and I stopped in one night for a quick cocktail after dinner and were surprised to receive additional (delicious) snacks with our cocktails. I ordered a Boulevardier, which I have been using as my benchmark for most cocktail bars I visit, and was very pleased with the presented cocktail. We were in fact both so pleased with everything we came back the next night for two more cocktails each. The prices were very reasonable and the bartender was very friendly, he definitely made us feel welcome. This bar seemed to have a lot of locals visiting on both occasions which definitely gives it a good vibe.…
