This one has been on my bucket list for a long time. Being a person with a lot of friends who bartend for a living, I couldn’t skip this place.
The timing was perfect, it was a friend’s night out, we’d just had dinner and we were looking for a nice place to have a couple of drinks while enjoying each other’s company. Somewhere not too loud nor too busy. Somewhere with just the right atmosphere to end our nights.
It was Red Frog’s time to shine as it checked all of our boxes.
The experience is surprising from the very beginning: You have to ring the doorbell to get inside and someone kindly lets you in and finds you the coziest spot for you to enjoy the rest of your night in this mysterious and secret speakeasy.
Big stools, sofas, a phonograph, a secret passage and other decorative elements make the ambience graced by dim lights and a caring service.
When it comes to the cocktails, this place is worth your visit. They’re outstanding and win you over with how different they are. You can tell by how they’re presented that the bartenders really took their time to think them through and are proud of the final outcome they created.
On the menu you’ll definitely find interesting and creative drinks with astonishing combinations that I bet you’ve never tried or thought about before.
I started with a classic, an Expresso Martini elegantly presented with just the right pinch of cinnamon that makes you want to go for a second round.
And that’s what I did! This time I ordered an interesting cocktail by the name “mask your soul” and let me tell you something: I know exactly what I’m going to order the next time I visit Red Frog. It was absolutely delicious, not too sweet nor too sour – perfectly balanced. What was in it, you may ask? Well, not your typical combination, for sure. It starts with rum and the final touches include white cocoa powder, banana and parsley. It’s a guilty pleasure and you can’t definitely miss this classy joint for refined cocktails that Red Frog is. Just go, and have fun!
