I love cocktails. They can be strong or virgin, classic or modern, sweet or acidic. Anything you like! Served as a long drink, in a martini glass or even a flute. The variations of cocktails are boundless. So I have a small problem with the more traditional cocktail houses – they mostly have classics. I’m a Gin Tonic kind of guy, yet every now and then I really want to venture into something new. Something exciting. And for that I need a modern cocktail.
That’s when Cinco Lounge comes to the rescue. Besides a long list of world famous cocktails that are perfectly executed, this lounge area provides a list of over a hundred cocktails spiced up with modern twists. Such as the Pink Mojito and H&Punch, which is served in a jam jar! The vessels usually match the drink and range from cans to milk bottles and weirdly shaped high glasses.
The lounge has some blue couches and almost each piece of furniture has a custom detail, one table decorated with corks from Portuguese wine bottles (of course they have wine, it’s a Portuguese bar after all!) and another one with the British flag. Between the soothing music in the background, the dimmed lights and the charming staff your stress will just vanish in this magic atmosphere.
But wait! There’s more. Cocktail workshops – you have to make a reservation, have a lot of fun and, finally, drink everything that you brew.
