7 Amazing Cocktail Bars in Europe

All over the world the resurgence of craft cocktails, small-batch local distilleries, and a strong leaning towards vintage libations is attracting aficionados to some unlikely spots. Here are some of my favorite European bars for not only a great drink but also an excellent experience.

Enjoy! And be sure to let me know in the comments some of the ones i need to check out in other cities. What are your favorites?

Best Cocktail Bars in Europe

By Dario Meli

A quick overview of some of my favorite places for amazing cocktails in Europe. I'll keep it updated as it grows and keep everyone in the loop.

  • Buck & Breck – Berlin

    By Dario Meli

    Tiny, exclusive, private, hidden. This is not a place for groups and its very helpful to know the man behind the door if you want to experience some of the best cocktails in Berlin. 

  • Vesper Bar – Amsterdam

    By Dario Meli

    Great spot in Jordaan. Make sure you ride your bike, you wont be able to drive when you leave.

  • La Candelaria – Paris

    By Dario Meli

    Walk thru a dodgy Mexican kitchen & once you reach the back door, tadaaa totally changed atmosphere. And the cocktails are Fabulous! 

  • Callooh Callay – London

    By Dario Meli

    Someone rated this the best cocktail bar in the world. I can vouch that this low key Shoreditch gem is worth seeking out. You wont be disappointed. 

  • Hemingway Bar – Prague

    By Dario Meli

    Easily the best cocktail bar in Prague. Get there early to have the bartender's full attention and avoid being smoked out by the patrons.

  • Barnum Cafè – Rome

    By Dario Meli

    By day this is a regular café where you might find students studying. In the evening it is the hidden gem of Rome. Patrick is an intensely talented bar man and will set you straight!

  • Bobby Gin – Barcelona

    By Dario Meli

    Lots and lots of gin. Really. But as you can see they have plenty of other beautiful beverages to suit your fancy. Go here.
