Watch the barmen mix you up a treat at this small, friendly cocktail bar in Plainpalais.

The younger sister of L’Atelier Cocktail Club in Eaux-Vives, this bar is easier to find, occupying a prime spot on the bar-heavy main road to Plainpalais. As such, it’s often pretty busy, but don’t let that put you off – it’s worth waiting to sample its 25-strong menu of imaginative cocktails. Flavours are fresh and inventive – with a particular bias towards Japanese whiskeys – and the presentation is a work of art. If you don’t see anything you fancy on the list, the friendly bar staff will happily mix you a one-off. Wannabe mixologists can find out more about the skill behind the drink by participating in one of the bar’s regular cocktail-making workshops.
