A lovely open air bar space, with 3 bars to serve from, and tasty cocktails. At the time we were there the number of guests outnumbered the team, but it took 20 minutes to get a cocktail, and they only noticed they didn't have ingredients...More

Fine bar in a beautiful setting. Wide selection of bottled beers, including stuff from local small breweries. Prices were high, but the visit was worth it.

Great music, tasty drinks, nice service, nice people. All that situated in an indoor yard with great cooling system. As far as I know, it used to be actually a monastery. Usually crowded, so better go early. I totally recommend a visit!

The place is amazing, the music lively and the service great. Really good service and reasonable prices as well (8€/cocktail). One of the best bars I saw in Chania!
