Awesome cocktails, the best i had, highly recommended. I found this bar aside from touristic area, i felt at home in this bar like in a living room. Cozy and warm, very inspiring

Staff is great, Bar is well stacked and the Pros behind the bar know their craftsmanship. On the plus side: they always have an open ear for requests off the menu.

The bar was nice, staff was attentive, and drinks were good. I didn't find the menu overly creative and the location was a bit odd. Overall a solid spot but I much prefer Old Crow when in Zurich
