“One Lounge was a disappointment”
Review of One Bar & Lounge

One Bar & Lounge
Ranked #1 of 6 Nightlife in Guanajuato
Attraction details
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This review is for the rooftop bar only--I've never stayed in the hotel. I was very excited to try this place because it seemed to be something different for Guanajuato. The location is perfect, the views are unbeatable, and it has a cool lounge-y vibe. HOWEVER, being such a nice place, they really need to step up the quality of their drinks. I wouldn't expect to find the same innovative cocktail concoctions so ubiquitous of my native Los Angeles, but everything we tried outside of the standard well drinks and Mexican beers was not very good. I had not one but TWO drinks that tasted like cough syrup. I don't usually order cocktails in Guanajuato because nobody seems to know how to make anything well with the exception of the occasionally good margarita, but I had hoped that FINALLY I could enjoy something other than a Negra Modelo or rum and coke overlooking my favorite city. Nope.

My suggestions are that One Lounge hire REAL bartenders and develop a drink menu with signature cocktails and specialty drinks with high quality ingredients. They will be the only ones in Guanajuato to do this. And then cocktail snobs like me will finally have a place to go to where the draw is actually the drinks and not just the atmosphere (there is already plenty of that in GTO).
