We'd read good reviews for 878 and were in the mood for cocktails, so we walked over from our hotel. Locating it was a little challenging, because it's on a relatively quiet residential street and has no sign or outward indication of its identity. Fortunately the address is pretty obvious. Even though it was late (for us) when we arrived... More

Excellent ambient, great drinks, great service, good music, perfect for a date. It's a little quiet, not too good if you are looking for party time.

We were with a friend who lives in the neighborhood otherwise I would have walked right by the door. Look for the low key door-person standing under a small address plate. Huge liquor selection. The bartenders are truly craftsmen with an open and welcoming sensibility. We really had a nice time on a night when nothing was going on. We... More

878 might not be for everyone, but for me it was the perfect match! Very, very good cocktails at still reasonable prices, good selection of beers. Could not comment on the food as I did not have any. Interior is of a modern lounge style, dimly lit. Crowd can be described as mainly hip but not overly so, 25+ years... More

Only the bouncer at the door indicated there was anything happening behind the front door. Once inside, a brick laden ex warehouse was the setting for this speakeasy. We came for cocktails and ordered sidecars and mohitos. A great experience to see one of the in bars in BA

A few locals were all telling us about this bar in Palermo. It wasn't easy to find, with no sign only a friendly doorman and the number 878. The cocktails were to die for, As a lover of the Negroni, I wasn't disappointed . Great bar snacks too. We chatted with the manager and shared our appreciation of the Mendoza... More
