You’re walking towards a destination, a cocktail lounge that everyone’s told you great things about. A few feet before arriving at the door, something to the left catches your eye.. It’s the stairs leading up to Santa Bárbara church, a wonder in its own right that deserves a few moments of your time. We’re on Bárbara de Braganza street and we’ve arrived at our destination, La Cabrera.
After going through the door, you realize that something special is going to happen this evening. The atmosphere of this bar is different, the air is special, the aroma is different from any other bar you’ve been to. It’s the same sensation that I felt when I entered Del Diego (another cocktail loung you can’t miss). And, suddenly, you realize there's two floors: the first floor with a charming bar and an equally charming basement level where you can sit down at small tables. The decision isn’t easy. We came to drink a gin and tonic and a cocktail, but the whole idea of the "gastrobar" has us heading downstairs to a table.
