NO Cafe’, Modena, Italy

This is a special review, and not only because the NO Cafe is a very special bar, where you can sip a classic Martini or any creative cocktail you can imagine in a fantastic medieval square in the centre of Modena, accompanied by lovely tapas mixing classic Emilia flavours with a touch of fusion. No, this... Continue Reading →


Smile Tree, Torino, Italy

Life is sometimes bizarre. You travel around for years searching for the perfect mixture between quality of drinks and creativity in making something new, then you end up in a town (Torino in my case) which is surely not known for its cocktail scene, and you find a bar that is probably the most creative...

The Mad Dog, Torino, Italy

Sometimes bars are in your destiny, as proven from the fact that the Mad Dog opened its doors on the very same day I moved to Torino, on first of November 2014. You might think: with so many bars opening in town lately, where is the big news? Well, the fact is that, in my humble... Continue Reading →

Subastor, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Let's put it simply: this is the best cocktail bar among the dozens of bars in Vila Madalena in Sao Paulo (I am ready to be challenged on this).

Bobby Gin, Barcelona, Spain

The "gin wave" that has submerged Spain is difficult to explain (we might devote an article to this soon...), but it has its own benefits. For example, in Barcelona you can find a few bars which are devoted - I mean religiously devoted - to the spirit of our heart. Of all these, the Bobby... Continue Reading →

Lenox Lounge, New York

Martini, jazz and history go well together. If this is true, a good martini in an historical jazzclub should be "the" experience you are looking for. You can find this in many clubs in NYC and beyond, but here we are talking of something more. We are talking of drinking your thing in the very... Continue Reading →

Carousel Bar, New Orleans, US

Before entering the Carousel Bar in the Hotel Monteleone, in New Orleans, I was convinced that - at the end of the day - good bars are good bars, but they all are quite similar, the rest are details. Then I sat at the bar, I ordered a Martini (sorry, a very good Martini) and... Continue Reading →
