10 Jul El Barón
Located in the Plaza de San Pedro Claver in Cartagena El Baron is enchanted by the magic of the exclusive, historic city centre of Cartagena. This restaurant/bar/cafe is running the show in terms of drinking spots in the city when it comes to speciality coffee and cocktails.
The 1920’s style watering hole is not just any bar, this is where the A-list locals and cocktail connoisseurs come to sip on perfectly prepared cocktails and experience new, exotic flavour combinations mixed with the finest ingredients Cartagena has to offer.
El Baron has teamed up with German cocktail expert, Noah Matthies who runs the bar most night and brings an international flair to the Colombian bar. The knowledge and experience he has collected over many years of travelling the world are what separate his cocktail creations from your typical bar menu. Noah likes to integrate local ingredients with the finest selection of run, whisky, gin, vodka and even tequila and adds an alchemist twist to standard, traditional cocktails.
During the day you will find an equal attention to detail is shown towards coffee. With Colombia being one of the largest coffee exporters in the world, El Baron has taken the time and dedication to showcase one of the countries finest ingredients. Here you will find an array of tasty coffees, deserts and lunch options.
El Baron might not have a large, spacious kitchen but they sure know how to pop out some impressive soups, sandwiches and salads while sticking to their philosophy of only using the finest, freshest ingredients possible. Their home-made tomato soup is to die for and is even better when dipped with any one of their artisanal deli-style sandwiches prepared on freshly made focaccia from Cartagena’s top bakery, Ely Gourmet.
El Baron definitely needs to be on your list of places to visit in Cartagena if you enjoy a mean cocktail or decadent coffee, great music and a laid back atmosphere.
