This bar is hidden behind the bookcase of a hostel. They serve a variety of really good cocktails. Really cool venue and affordable prices of about $10-12

This is a perfect place for cocktails, but only for cocktails even if the website says otherwise. The entrance through the bookshelf is really funny. There is a large choice of cocktails, so you'll find something you like.
