This award-winning project of Diego Cabrera's is indeed a cocktail bar, but it's one where, in addition to quenching your thirst in the most agreeable of ways, you can also please your stomach with a selection of hummus, mini-burgers, tapas and pickled treats that quickly become addictive. A comic-book theme dominates the casual ambience and 1960s-style cocktail-bar decor. Cabrera aims to democratize and dignify everything related to mixology while also offering dozens of classic cocktails, others of his own creation, and new combinations that he's concocted with Pepe Orts, the country's greatest botanist.
