We started at Ladies and Gentleman which is a bar in an underground loo. This place was listed as one of the best cocktail places worldwide. It was a good place and the fact that you were in an underground bathroom made it even more unique. Even though the cocktails were good we don't think they are in the top 23 speakeasies of the world. We did know of another bar nearby and we asked about it and they said it was a good bar. The name of the bar was Knowhere Special. The name of this place is completely off, as this place is extraordinarily special. We seek out great craft cocktail places and speakeasies worldwide, we went to 14 countries last year. The day prior we had been in Kentucky at a bar that has over 2500 bourbons. We do some research and routinely seek out the best places a city has to offer and we check them out. Slightly challenging to find - but not that hard. Its a great space, although a bit small but we loved it. We got very lucky and got seated at the bar. We got very lucky that Ash was the bartender (and owner) and he was a pure joy to watch. Their cocktails are incredible, extremely well thought out and innovative. The bartender never looked at a menu once and these were not simple cocktails - it proves they are true professionals. We have quite a bit of tasting experience and these were in the top cocktails we have had worldwide. This place also pairs some small plates with their cocktails and the pairings were divine. They are unique but they really work well together. The staff was all top notch and very friendly and had a great time with all of them. But the stars are the cocktails and the bar staff. They worked so well together and like I said a joy to watch. They enjoy their craft and it shows. We loved our discussion with all of them and they were eager to talk cocktails. We can't wait to go back.
