Theres nothing better than the satisfaction of getting exactly what you want. Better still, when you don’t even have to think about what it is you want, but it is placed before you, recommended and mixed to perfection. And if that moment of divine intervention happens to have a straw in it … you have found yourself in the right place.
A fine cocktail bar will make even the most complicated drink seem effortless but it’s a truly great cocktail bar where all you have to do is list your favourite spirit, add a dash of preference for sweet or bitter and watch the magic unfold.

Uptown is Mutis. Without a doubt one of the most exclusive places in town and at the top of the best cocktail bars in Europe, it cannot be missed for attention to every detail. Drinks bursting with flavors and funky bands at midnight makes it an essential stop for any evening.
