Description: Having a taste of perfectly crafted cocktails is fascinating. It's that: tasting. Mixology is not only about mixing different kinds of spirits, it's an art. EL BARON - Cafe & Liquor Bar located at Plaza de San Pedro Claver in Cartagena is a place charmed by the magic of the old city, exclusive, cozy and with an edge. It's a place that gives you the opportunity to taste, not only cocktails, but art (including great wine, coffee and incredible food). The most popular drinks are: Gin Basil Smash with Citadelle Gin and Basil, Agave Margarita with Tequila Herradura Plata and Agave Syrup and the traditional Hendricks Gin & Tonic, with Fever Tree Tonic water and Rose Petal Smoke. If you are a person that appreciates details and the best ingredients possible EL BARON is the perfect place for you.

Just popped in after checking out the modern art museum. It's a nice midday spot to cool off with a little drink. Try the affogato, it's delicious and refreshing. Just what you need when you've been wandering around in the hot sun.

small mellow bar, very cool decor. not much indoor sitting, though really cool. we were there during the day seeking AC and a quiet place to sit and read. since no one really coming through mid day, we could just sit and relax. nice vibe. great jazz mix going on. wife had "best mojjito [she's] had in cartagena"... and with 2 for 1 happy hour, even better! (otherwise, drinks were a little pricey). we also had the "bruschetta" - which was really grilled chopped langostinos on french bread.... which was delicious (though $8USD only got you 3 small pieces of bread.

We were really lucky to come across this bar in Cartagena. Fantastic cocktails, great intimate atmosphere, nice interior and some really appetizing roast beef sandwiches. Primarily a bar, but they serve small and tasty dishes. We were happy to meet Juan and his colleagues, who contributed to us coming back again and again! Good luck in the future - hope that you can score some tables out front on the nice plaza as well!

Small, charming locale at the steps of one of the historic city's most historic churches. The ambience is excellent, the uniqueness is refreshing, and they have one of the most original and delicious drink menus in town. If you're strolling the town at night definitely worth a stop.

Thank Art S

We tried El Baron because it was so high on Tripadvisor. It was fine, good place for lunch, but it's definitely not a place I would recommend, it needs to be knocked a few positions.
