The owner of the Dry Martini brand says that this opening is “a new stage for Dry Martini Madrid. After all, novelties are available here, but the style remains. If something works out, you don’t have to keep on innovating”. And, following the Barcelona matrix: you should keep the features of a speakeasy bar – outside the premises of any hotel, which is quite unusual for the establishments seeking popularity among tourists. However, the components of Dry Martini’s success are not related to the hotel brands and locations.

When the guru of modern bartenders Javier de las Muelas received his bequest, he wanted to maintain the essence of a classic cocktail bar – he maintained the English style of a cocktail bar: leather, wood and brass; expanded the menu with classical cocktail recreations and its famous new collections of genuine, exclusive and innovative cocktails.
