Overview

A modern lounge/wine bar just off the walking street in Old Town Benidorm. Smooth tunes in the day with more current in the evening. Outside terrace for those warm nights with a cold drink. Air conditioned inside but with 2 street entrances we have a natural air flow through the bar to keep you cool. Tastefully decorated - no black or dark environment here. Come and enjoy and stay a while
