I visited this bar pre covid. The group that I is was with had a good time, we met many other people. We were there at night and liked the nightlife. There was a small local band. We could dance, even though the place is...small, this place is great to enjoy the local night life. You have to walk up 4 flights of stairs, which keeps out the rif raf.More

After climbing several flights of stairs, you reach the bar located in Old Town on Smardan Street. It's a typical bar offering drinks. The view wasn't what I'd hoped for. Still, it'd be a pleasant place to chill for a bit.

Went up here on a whim and almost didn’t bother because of the stairs but so glad we did! The bar tender Chris was awesome and really made us feel like we were welcome. Best place we visited in Bucharest awesome drinks, reasonable price and...best of all, great company. Cash only so get money out before you climb the stairs. ❤︎♥︎❤︎More

Save your money and go somewhere else to have a decent cocktail. The cocktails are the worst I've ever tasted: no trace of alcohol, and they fill the glass with ice to the brim. I believe they do this so there is not much room...left for the drink itself, which is enough for few sips. Terrible place, would not recommend.More

Views - I don't think so... Cocktails - err, go to cocktail school... Service - dreadful attitude from two young females with little interest in customer service... Finally, if you don't like smoking this is a cancerous death trap! DON'T GO....
