The decoration and style of the bar is very cool! Enough choice out of cocktails beers wines and more, only thing is the heavy techno music instead of a lounge mix ;) but for sure a very nice bar!

Really enjoyed a few glasses of wine here on a rainy night. The music was nice, minimal deep-house sort of fare and the staff were helpful and friendly. A good place to have a scribble.

Lots of cocktails and knowledgeable staff giving you new things to try. Fun decor - watch out for cabbage lampshades!

It was a very nice bar very well decorated and the drinks were quite nice. I just didn t like the waitress. I don t now her name but she is brunete and has a rude atitude and an arrogant ton of voice. She shouldn t be working with people.

Hidden between the herd of tourist traps on Bairro Alto there is an excellent bar with real cocktail and real staff. It's still in a tourist environment so you can't blame them for some of the clientele, but you get some quality in a place where the sight of land was a mirage

Went there three times in a row and it got better every visit. Great drinks served by super-friendly staff in a cool and quirky venue to some pretty funky beats. Unforgettable nights in this coolest of cities. Expect the unexpected!

An atmospheric bar at the top of Barrio Alto, definitely a highlight of our trip. The staff are friendly too - whoever thought of the cabbage lights is genius

I see a lot of bad reviews - specifically commenting on bad service. We do realize mileage can vary a LOT in a bar like this but our experience was simply awesome. We got here on one of our night strolls and sat on the bar immediately (seriously, why would you NOT sit on the bar?). Marcus, the bar tender... More

This place looks great from the street, the cabbage lights looked really cool! It has good ambience, candles on the tables, and attracts the right kind of crowd. It seems like a perfect place for pre-dinner drinks to get the night started. Unfortunately for us the experience was ruined by rude staff. In particular, one guy with longer dark hair... More

All the stuff is morose and rude. Their behavior is really bad. Service is so bad and late. They shut the WiFi when we asked the password. You can really choose lots of better place to enjoy your night.
