Wow. What a find. A gorgeous cocktail bar in the vaults under a bridge. The decor is amazing and the menu large enough for all. Access is down some steep steps. Cocktails aren’t cheep so come with a full wallet. Whenever I have people visit...More

We went for cocktails from their long drinks menu. They were both delicious and well presented. The barman was friendly and the atmosphere and decor are great.

Nice spot to come across rather late at night when wanting to have a couple of last drinks. Good selection of drinks and a diverse clientèle.

A great atmosphere, lots of renaissance paintings and oddities. Great space, intimate and close, and the absinthe is prepared and presented correctly. Thursday's are a 2 for 10 which means that 2 tin cups of absinthe is very affordable and effective!
