A great cocktail menu. One menu page is dedicated to drinks created by their bartenders and some involve rare ingredients you won't find elsewhere. As others have said, no flip flops allowed.

Alquimico is probably the coolest bar with the best ambience in Cartegena. The drinks were good and had a nice appearance to them. I would recommend checking this place out.

I convinced my husband to go there on our first night in Cartagena. When we first got there he told me "Don't ever bring me here again. It is too fancy". A couple of good drinks and appetizers and an excellent service changed his mind...More

No es necesario hacer reservaciones. Las dos veces que fui había una fila pero con sólo pocas personas. Adentro estaba casi lleno pero nos divertimos! Hay dos pisos y si quieres un ambiente más “chill” (calmado) sube arriba.
