This place is something else. It’s an old wooden pharmacy from 1881 which houses two very popular venues: Manna la Roosa & Tai Boh (check the Tai Boh article). Both places are designed by famous designer Soho Fond, whose crazy paintings and old furniture has brought that special vibe to the place. It’s cozy and relaxed with good service and fine food.
During the daytime it is usually filled with foreigners and locals having their lunch and an occasional coffee. Whole new Mediterranean menu now!
In the evening Manna fills up with pairs out for a romantic dinner or bigger groups celebrating a birthday and the place turns into a popular cocktail bar. The variety of cocktails is amusing. Every 3 months the bartenders come up with their signature cocktails, ingredients are self-made from fresh natural herbs, berries and juices plus they’re served beautifully.
Later on, a DJ shows up and transforms it to a lively discotheque full of dancing and mingling people, aged 30 years and up. So the quality of the place for me lies with the lack of young drunks: the crowd is nice and polite.
Tables should be booked beforehand, there are more ladies than gentlemen and the place is not cheap. I go there for evening eats and dining drinks before hitting the clubs. The place is also a meeting point for 30+ people. I usually go there alone to meet new people. There are always some interesting foreigners hanging out to talk to and lavish ladies on the hunt.
