"Cause we love classic cocktails and twisted minds!"
Baba Au Rum (B.A.R.) opened in March 2009 bringing a whole new approach to Rum and Cocktail culture in Greece. And yes they do love twisted minds, so they play for them, offering delicious twists on 19th century classics such as Crustas, Flips and Fizzes, exotic cocktails from the legendary Rum Tiki era (California 1930's-40's and 50's) and theri last experimentation on cutting edge mixology methods.
All above prepare them with premium spirits, only daily fresh juices and ingredients produced at their Lab experimenting on homemade syrups, liqueurs, vermouths and bitters. It also keep the biggest in Greece and one of the most important Rum sellections in Europe including some rare and vintage bottles of Rum. The atmosphere is elevated by the music, which eschews Europop for classic tracks – the Beatles are clearly a favourite – and jazz and blues.
Here young guns who could easily pass as extras in a beatnik movie rub shoulders with 40-somethings straight from the office. And the great thing is, everyone looks at home.
