There are few places you can visit that create exceptional cocktails whilst giving you an opportunity to surround yourself with antiques, fine art paintings and luxury watches - but that’s where Ana Rocha come in. This bar-slash-gallery immerses you into the world of contemporary art with their permanent exhibitions and ensures there are always a couple of classy cocktails close to hand to accompany the experience. It’s a unique setting that, whilst feeling somewhat decadent with its antique clocks and glamourous Louis XIV style mirrors, has a modern, calm and stylish look to it.
Amongst all the art and antiques, we think its the cocktails here that are the true masterpieces. The menu features classic cocktails but not as you know them; redefined by Ana Rocha’s specialised and experienced team of bartenders, these drinks offer surprising twists on old classics by meticulously balancing flavour notes and intriguing garnishes. Our personal favourite has to be the sophisticated and spicy ginger and vanilla caipirinha, but you also can’t beat the Japanese Sour. But for something truly different, get your hands on their raspberry and white chocolate mojito.
To complete the experience, Ana Rocha Bar & Gallery also turn out some brilliant tapas dishes. They’ve taken great steps to present visitors with an authentic culinary journey through SPain by showcasing a depth of the country’s cuisine in their menu; tapas from an array of provincial regions are available (from gambas al pil pil and Gulas al ajillo, to croquetas de pollo and salchicha de pollo al vino) with definitive textures, tastes. Everything is made with the freshest produce and is served with an elegant presentation.
Ana Rocha Bar & Gallery know what the good life is all about. Feast on its delights and indulge your senses - and who knows, maybe you’ll buy yourself a new piece of art for your home.
