    This hip space specializes in absinthe and scotch and has a brilliant atmosphere. Part of this is down to the building’s history, the tavern dates back to the 1830s and thereabouts and the current incarnation is both modern and stylish while preserving something of the past. Back in the day it was a speakeasy; it’s also been home to a jazz club. The building has many stories to tell. Now the historic building is home to an absinthe bar, stocking over two dozen varieties of the notorious green spirit, most of them from France and Switzerland, which are served in the traditional manner, poured over a flamed sugar cube which dissolves into the pool of emerald liquor. There’s also a huge selection of whiskies to choose from. There's also a range of tasty Breton crepes if you're hungry.
