Review

This one-room saloon bar exudes the sophistication that you’d expect from a classic five-star hotel bar, yet remains relaxed and informal. Owner Gunter Windhorst and his super-efficient bartenders may wear neatly pressed white shirts but the customers tend to be laid back and casually attired.

Thirty or so people almost fill the small room. Built-in banquette seating runs around the grey rendered walls under a bronze ceiling with a scattering of round tables filling the floor space. Ignore these and grab yourself a bar stool at the far right-hand end of the bar. This is where the cocktails are assembled, and watching their construction is something to behold. The back shelves bristle with premium liquor and the small wooden drawers beneath contribute to the appearance of an apothecary.

A 52-page hardback menu lists tens of classic and contemporary cocktails, all lovingly made and with juices freshly hand-pressed specifically for each individual drink
