WHY HERE: Giacomo Giannotti offers creative and playful cocktails that would make Barcelona’s molecular gastronomy masterminds happy. The sleek bar is discreetly hidden behind a pastrami shop in El Born district of Barcelona.
WHY NOW: Expect every drink to offer a wow factor with either presentation and technique. Ask for the Troy Horse, a Manhattan made with a Mediterranean twist that’s actually served in a wooden Trojan horse toy. Giannotti’s bar team is also establishing itself on the world stage, with Andrea Civettini winning the 2018 Amaro Montenegro Vero bartender competition.
