They have an impressive selection of whiskeys from all over the world. The bar is based in an old cellar, which goes where well with whisky you order.

Cool walk downstairs off the main strip into a cave like basement with red brick low ceilings. Great selection and helpful bartender to get the drink just right for each person. Also, the peat-cured salmon with mustard is amazing.

A place that you wouldn't expect to find in Kaunas. I am a whiskey person, but the choice of this noble drink was overwhelming. If you want a real feel of the place you bettor of sitting at the bar, where bartenders can explain the variety they offer. Not too much of the food place, very few dishes on the... More

A must visit place if you are a whisky lover! Great selection of single malt whiskies, ranging from Scotch to Japanese ones, knowledgable bartenders and a cozy atmosphere. Whisky cured salmon sandwiches are absolutely fantastic!

nice place to sit for an hour or with a tremendous variety of whiskies, reasonable selection of other drinks and medicore food and good jukebox. Getting served was a bit of a struggle, with one barman spending a long time helping a confused party, while the waitress looked on unwilling or unable to help

Thank you for a review. Unfortunately we don't do table service at W 1640. This may explain the situation you have mentioned. Bartender is the only person serving you as we believe you may need a professional help while choosing from one of 200 whiskies we hold. More
