“PARADISO” IN BARCELONA
To access this clandestine Paradiso, which received the title of best cocktail bar in the world by The World’s 50 Best Bars, the visitor has to enter through an old refrigerator door inside a Pastrami Bar.
It is an emblematic place, located in the Borne neighborhood, where you can try the coveted signature cocktails of Italian Giacomo Gianotti: a bartender who fuses seasonal ingredients with creative notes that give rise to some of his signature cocktails such as “Evolution”, made with pisco, pesto and saffron.

“GRAN MARTÍNEZ” IN VALENCIA

The menu of “Gran Martínez” distills a series of aphrodisiac, fruity or relaxing cocktails, among which stand out its “Blinker” of rye whiskey with raspberries or pink grapefruit as well as the “Fuego Manzana” made with 100% agave tequila, apple liqueur, lime, sugar and red chili.
“CHINCHÍN” IN MADRID
This cocktail bar inspired by the Sunset Boulevard aesthetic of 1930s Hollywood opened its doors just a few months ago, but has already become a meeting point for the capital’s creative and artistic communities.
Amidst interior design elements of classic luxury, such as red velvet lamps, sparkling glassware and a catlike tapestry covering the ceilings, Chinchín offers a varied menu of delicious cocktails and spirits ranging from the classic Margarita or the Moscow Mule, to the Pisco Shower or the Negroni.

Palma de Mallorca becomes one of the epicenters of cocktails in our country, displaying a whole scenario of specialized establishments such as the emblematic Agabar cocktail bar, known as “La casa de la Margarita” for serving more than 4,000 margaritas a year.
This establishment, run by Romanian Cristian Balta and Ecuadorian Gabriela Tandazo, stands out for synthesizing infinite flavors in a cocktail menu that includes a reinterpretation of the modern classic “New York Sour”, which evolves from whiskey to a cocktail with Mallorcan wine and tequila.

A whole gastronomic experience that is completed with evocative sounds of jazz, deep underground or soul live.
“CONJUGOO” IN MURCIA
Conjugoo’s experimentation with the art of mixing has no limits. It is a cocktail bar in which its conceptual drinks dilute a series of feelings or ideas.

Its culinary menu designed by chef and gastronomic consultant Sergio de Gea harmoniously combines all those cocktails served in the heart of the capital.
