“Nice cocktails! ”
Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Good place for aperitif. Lots (and I do mean lots) of different kinds of absinthe, mixed in cocktails if you don't want it burning through your throat pure. Had the absinthe caipirina, was great!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

This is a very small bar in the old town, a bit tricky to find, but worth it in the end to experience it. Everything is absinthe inspired, from beer to cocktails. We tried the original absinthe with the sugar burned into it. The bar person was friendly and helped us choose what to have, but there is a menu you can choose from. We sat upstairs and the bar person brought us our drinks with some water that needs to be drank with the absinthe!!

“Nice place for an afternoon absinth ”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Cool place, worth a visit. A little bit too tiny, we had to shift tables and stand at the bar a while due to reservations. Not the place to spend the night, but a short one hour visit.

“Gimmicky and decided not to try”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

When we walked in, we were the only ones and looked for a long time at the menu and board. The two people behind the bar looked at us but did not offer to help at all. We asked them if they had absinth ice cream (which I had read about), and they did not have it. Two other girls walked in and asked for a recommendation for a drink but they also did not receive an overly friendly or helpful answer. The bartender lit a drink on fire, which was a nice show. However, we decided to opt out of getting a drink. It is dark and kind of glow in the dark inside and completely empty even at a late hour. It seemed more like a gimmicky tourist trap. We did not receive the vast information other reviewers stated, but maybe we went on an off night.
