As an American, I of course was instantly intrigued when I learned about there being a bar in Old Town named ‘The Antique American Bar’ which made the list of The World’s 50 Best Bars. So during one of my final evenings in Bratislava I made the request to my Slovak partner Juraj to visit and he happily obliged, having never yet been there himself.
From the moment you step inside the bar you are whisked away to a forgotten world – a world of class and sophistication and picture perfect cocktails. Let me tell you, it was hard to leave. Everything from the ambience, to the service, to the cocktails were perfection. We finally did leave – two hours and four cocktails later – and delightfully floated all the way back to our apartment. Yes, it was just that good!
The Antique American Bar is located in Old Town, Bratislava and opens at 3pm each day. You can find more information here.
