    Thanks for this recommendation, we loved 27 tapas! We went there for a sundowner and it was just an incredible setting. The Amazonian cocktail with camu camu and gin was deli

    You should have posted this blog a few months earlier. We went in February to 27 Tapas and it was amazing! The food or appetizers are very delicious and the drinks are good. But what we have enjoyed the most was the outstanding view from the top. Just incredible. Next time we will go and discover the other rooftop bars. cheers
