Florería Atlántico

Top choice cocktail bar in Retiro

This basement speakeasy is located within a flower shop, which adds an air of mystery and is likely a key reason for its success. Hipsters, artists, chefs, businesspeople and foreigners all flock here for the excellent cocktails, both classic and creative, accompanied by delicious tapas.

If you’re a gin lover, note that the owner, Renato Giovannoni, produces and sells his own brand – called Príncipe de los Apóstoles – aromatically infused with mint, grapefruit, eucalyptus and yerba mate. Reserve ahead for dinner.
