Time Out says
Garra Bar invites you to free your mind of preconceived ideas about hotel lobby bars as you step into this cocktail room in the restaurant Somos, located inside Madrid's Barceló Torre Hotel. The imposing interior design (by internationally recognised designer Jaime Hayón) is full of winks to art deco, with plenty of gilt, careful lighting and a bar that's set around a majestic column/showcase displaying bottles of champagne. Goldfinger would be in ecstasy. Under the high ceilings there's a real New York vibe, while behind the marble bar, Ramón Jiménez works his magic to find the perfect cocktail for you. Among their concoctions are the curious Special Bloody made of fino and tomato, and the Sake by Garra with sake and cider, and the suggestive Power Girl with rum and peach juice. You won't run out of options for snacking either, with their selection of oysters, Cantabrian anchovies, potato omelette, croquettes and more.
