    Great Cocktail place in Eaux Vives.  Reminded me of the speakeasy bars you get in the US - intimate feel with lots of little corners and rooms with seating, well worn in old couches, an (unused) piano....

    Really fantastic range of cocktails (the menu goes on for ever) organized by theme, which came pretty quickly considering how busy the place was (and open on the public holiday!).  My Papa Hemingway was solid, but my friend's Negroni was divine (although strong enough to mean you need a lie down afterwards).  We're already planning our return visit to work our way through the menu...

    The menu mentioned a wine and beer happy hour from 5-7pm which might also be fun to try.

    Great cocktails - great design - good ambiance.
    Prices are reasonable for Geneva, but you need to manage to get one! Service is really slow and not the friendliest, but it is nice to go with friends.

    I prefer to go to their other bar, l'apoticaire, on the blvd George favon.

    First to Review

    Excellent original and reasonably priced (for Geneva) cocktails! [most cocktails are 15fr except for the dry martinis which are 18fr]

    From what I understand the place is run by two dudes that clearly have a passion for mixology. They have created a new menu (not sure how new.. but newer than the one I saw a few months ago) that is almost overwhelming in it's size...

    They have a combination of timeless classics (manhattan, old fashioned, martini's, mint julep etc.) and  original concoctions ranging from spicy to fruity to herbal... Often they put their own twist on the classics  - e.g.  the first menu i think the old fashioned was made with honey and raspberry - it was one of my favorites. Yesterday I tasted a few off the new menu - i really liked the strawberry sakerinha (sake and strawberry based) as well as one that had yamazaki (japanese whiskey) passion fruit and litchi liqueur...

    The place gets quite crowded during the 'after work hours' and you have to appreciate that it might take a little time to get your drinks, especially if you are a big table (because well, they are elaborate cocktails with that are mixed fresh to order...)
    Many times when going between 5-8pm we were offered a free plate of cheese, charcuterie  and olives....

    Was looking for a good bar on Yelp. Stumbled upon this place. 4 hours later, stumbled back to my hotel. These guys know how to make a cocktail. Fresh ingredients, and they clearly care about each drink. They took care of a couple of Americans, and treated us like locals. Good music. Great crowd. Highly recommend this place.

    Passion of Rum is THE best cocktail ever. It is one of the only things that you can find only in Geneva !

    This is probably THE place to go if you want to taste some of the most original cocktails in Geneva. Price is ok compared with the quality of drinks and the environnment is pretty cool: I definitely recommend it!
