This gastronomic bar with great emphasis on a new supply of quality food. We want to show that an unusual and tasty food can be available and the price, and to understand. And you can see the menu and quite familiar dishes, they have a different cooking techniques or feed. In general, this is the place where you can get and the gastronomic and aesthetic pleasure. Much attention is paid directly filling the bar, an unusual cocktail menu will take a lot of pleasure. Effect, the cocktails - it is also an explosion of taste and a great mood, and alcohol is not the dominant ingredient.
