Notable for their minimal waste approach, the team at Slink & Bardot maximizes the use of each ingredient, even upcycling peels into gins and transforming pulp into cordial. Their inventive menu also includes a variety of buzz-free drinks that offer the same exotic flavours and presentation as their alcoholic counterparts.

Paradiso, on the other hand, founded by Giacomo Giannotti in Barcelona, is celebrated for its speakeasy style and cutting-edge cocktails.
