I visited Columbus with my team. After paying 1€ in average for Expresso at top hotels and cafes here the bill skyrocketed for a couple of coffees and one or two drinks, with a slow and noisy place without that much to offer. Certainly a...More

Very fun and interesting bar that looks out toward the marina but that’s not the draw, the exotic drink menu and historic grotto-like atmosphere. Very fun. Then go to the Hotel Faro rooftop bar for a view.

Were there 3 times this trip. One of the best bars around! Drinks are top shelf, and mixed with car. The bartender (female) from open to 9 pm is a real mixologist, friendly, and cute. Don’t miss this if you like to cocktail!
