The new speakeasy scene in Mendoza

The new speakeasy scene in Mendoza

December 12, 2016barmendozarestaurant1126Views

Mendoza has always had a tradition of hidden restaurants (known locally as ‘puertas cerradas’), but until now there hasn’t been any hidden bar. La Terracita has broken that ceiling, with a rooftop speakeasy on Plaza Italia.

A staircase in El Ciebo restaurant leads you up to what would appear to be a library, when you find the book with the secret password the door is opened…

The intimate rooftop is a little treasure trove of Alice in Wonderland-style cocktails served in bottles, wine by the glass and craft beer. With the restaurant down below you can also rest assured you aren’t far from a good bite. El Ciebo’s empanadas are some of the best in Mendoza.

After enjoying the popular speakeasy scene in the US the owners of El Ciebo, sommelier Eugenia and chef Mauricio, came back inspired to open their own. You can enjoy the secret rooftop bar every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from 7pm (with Happy Hour till 9pm).

Just remember not to tell everyone, it’s secret… Shhh!
