The drinks were very poor in alcohol : 9 euros for colored water. Not polite staff. No value for money.

Couldn’t recommend this cocktail speakeasy any higher. Perfect in every detail. Yes, the door is not advertised - as advertised ;) Know the address, dress well. About €10-12 per cocktail - but they’re worth it.

Cozy and warm atmosphere for a drink at the center. Just ring the bell. Kind stuff. Go for it when it has live performances

This is a hidden cocktail bar where you can go inside by knocking a casual door. This concept impressed us a lot. The guy who was making the cocktails was a great guy. He helped us about everything. And his cocktails were top class. This...More
