    Grasshopper is super refreshing but you must like sweet cocktails. This place is so well decorated. Definitely fit in this city of art deco.

    If you like rum and a well made cocktail, definitely get the Hotel Nacional. It's perfectly blended! ❤

    If you've had Milk Punch before and it wasn't crystal clear, it wasn't true Milk Punch. It's homemade here and amazing.
