This is one of the smartest bars in Cologne. Though near the student neighbourhood of Zülpicher Strasse, this is in no way a student bar, rather a chic cocktail den serving exquisite drinks confidential recipes. They use fresh, premium ingredient and serve innovative original drinks (served with truffle-popcorn on the side, yum). There are savoury notes to a lot of their drinks, with ingredients including cucumber, liquorice, and black pepper – though not in the same drink. We like the sound of the Green Invasion which pairs vodka with crème de cacao and pistachio for a sweet treat. The gin and tamarind Hang Tang also sounds really appealing. The interior is sleek and smart and flatteringly lit, the bartenders really know their stuff – they’d happily tailor a drink to your tastes if you asked.
