Jules Basement – A modern speakeasy

The adventure starts from trying to find this place – walking through a Mexican food restaurant, reaching the kitchen and stepping into an industrial fridge door. 

This bar is one of the best-kept secrets in the city, making it a mysterious and fun spot to visit. With black walls, large skulls encased in boxes that serve as tables, and a seriously dark ambiance, this joint is both inviting and dramatic in perfect measure.

The menu features a wide variety of drinks, from prohibition era cocktails, historical signature mixes and original proposals from the mixologists that include cocktails with Mexican and international liquors, making it easy to look forward to trying new drinks.

As a tea lover, I was curious about Jules because of the speakeasy concept, but also because of the cocktails that involved Oolong tea (a less oxidized tea compared to black tea) and a chai cocktail called “Masala Cloud”. This drink turned out to be a mix of Jameson (whisky), Zeer Oude Bols (another whisky), chai cream, lemon juice, Prosecco and spices. The result was a cocktail full of interesting and well-balanced flavors, making a non-drinker like me, really pleased about not finding really heavy alcoholic notes. 

Jules is an awesome place that offers the possibility of trying brand new things every time, exploring new horizons as drinking goes and crossing “step into an industrial fridge” off your bucket list. 

Note: As it’s a very small place, reservations are strongly recommended!
