Palmera Lounge

When Prohibition took hold, the thirsty took off. Many of the best bartenders left for Cuba and the vibrant lure of its nightlife, triggering a Cuban cocktail renaissance. There was glamour, plenty of local rum, and world-class cigars. Palmera Lounge picks up where this intoxicating storyline leaves off: a new take on the classic, high energy Cuban clubs of the 40s with expertly crafted cocktails, bright, inviting design, boisterous live entertainment, and a cigar bar.

Visit Palmera Lounge and be wowed by the impressive mixology and intoxicating local flavours.

Bar Balam

Bar Balam is UNICO 20°87°’s day through to night cocktail bar, radiating warmth, while calling to mind the mystique of hidden-door cocktail dens of yore. Balam (which translates to jaguar in Mayan) is a powerful spirit in the ancient Mayan tradition, a divine symbol of strength and a protector of fields. This sense of strength and boldness infuses the drinks which present an insightful Mexican take on classic cocktail tradition.
