For me the best cocktail bar in the center. Authentic environment, interesting, delicious cocktails, simple clean flavors. Such a nice surprise from the usual complicated, pretentious cocktails bars of late.

A very small and cosy bar in the city center. It’s a celebration of gin culture. And yes, both the drinks and the service are excellent and the people are very friendly.

Nothing but good things to say about this place. Their drink menu was inventive. The guys making the drinks are master's of their craft. They are as fun to watch as the drinks are enjoyable. If you enjoy gin, don't miss this spot!

Service could be more friendly for sure....It is quite expensive for the quantity of gin poured in a cocktail; and they did not have the proper extras like Gin Mare needs a black olive and a spring of rosemary. May be on a slow night...More

Definitely worth a visit if you are partial to G&T. Large selection of gins and tonics but more importantly Alex, the barman, took time to talk us through the gin menu, philosophy, politics and local restaurants worth a visit. A very enjoyable aperitif! Thank you...More
