===============================

Must-Try: Alongside an international food menu, Bbar has live mix sessions and DJ sets throughout the week, as well as contemporary signature cocktails created by resident mixologists. Bbar’s top tip for the best Espresso Martini: The ingredients are really simple, it’s the execution that generates the magic! A really good espresso martini is in the technique and of course the fresh coffee. The shake must be vigorous and keep the liquid in rotation as in the Japanese cocktail shaking technique. It’s not about strength, more speed, and know-how.
