Cocktail Bar

“It looks like an antiques shop and could very well be a museum, but it's a bar that opens late in the afternoon. You must ring a bell to get inside, and once you do you find one of the city's most authentic spots. There's a total of five rooms decorated with curious objects (miniature trains, toy soldiers, old mugs, etc. from the owner's private collection), to admire as you sip a cocktail. There's an extensive list of drinks, from cocktails to juices, to teas and Port Wine. You may also play pool in one of the rooms.”

“One of the best rooftops in the city, at least for me. Used to be the last level of a parking lot. Gets veeery full, but really worth a visit. The view is just speechless, if you go in the late afternoon and manage to catch the sunset is the best. Later at night they have a DJ playing old school music and you can check online the kind of music that is playing each night. Closed on Sundays. If you like strawberry mojito, trust me, try it here cause its simply the best!!”
