Went here on spur of the moment and ended up staying for 4 of the best cocktails - and we have had a few over the years. Fabulous bar. Very oldy-worldy with dark wood everywhere. Great bar tender and music. A must!

Wow! These are authentic cocktails and the staff are also fab. I didn't really fancy anything in particular on the menu so the staff asked me what I like. I said gin and cucumber and was presented with the most delicious cocktail ever! My husband...More

Dark and eclectic bar, with a slightly 1930s theme. Smart and friendly staff mix classy drinks with vintage cocktail shakers. Red velvet chairs and a retro feel - a great place for a soup-bowl sized G&T, and something a bit different to the typical Lyon...More

This is a very small little bar with lots of amazing ambiance. The waiter was charming and accommodating to us even though we don't speak French. My husband ordered a Moscow mule and I had red wine.

Small but full of character in the heart of Lyon. Wine, beer and cocktails. We had a bottle of wine, 24 euros. Very friendly stuff. Mid-range prices.
