The menu features traditional dishes updated with fresh, local produce of the best possible quality. The food has a classical foundation, with nods to international cuisine and loads of flavour. A warm, comfortable, timeless space with a simple elegance that conveys a much-needed calmness in the heart of the city. At CityBar you'll find the best atmosphere in the city, day or night, and extremely creative cocktails, including the "Mosco y Lola" (with vodka, black pepper and Earl Grey tea), as well as old favourites like the "Old Fashioned" and the "Whisky Sour" A venue in the heart of the city where you can also hold private events, with optional DJ and a wide selection of set menus for groups.
