In a perfect world, you should be able to enjoy the best things where they come from. Bars, the drinks they serve and the tasty cigars you can smoke there should be no exception.

Following in the footsteps of the world-famous writer and "Puros" lover Ernest Hemingway, you should know that the best daiquiris are served in the Floridita, in the heart of the Cuban capital La Havana, and the best mojitos are served just a few blocks away in La Bodeguita del Medio. These two drinks require the accompaniment of an exquisite Arturo Fuente, Montecristo or Cohiba cigar. A few thousand miles away, in charming Paris, the same Hemingway would certainly have recommended the fabulous Martini at the bar of the Ritz Hotel in Paris. Legend has it that after the war he helped to make this drink popular in the USA.

Cigars carefully stored in the Grand Connossieur Bar from Buben & Zörweg.

At Harry's in Piazza San Marco, the connoisseur's choice can only be the remarkable Bellini cocktail, named in honour of the work of the Venetian painter Giovanni Bellini. Not far from the famous canal city is Ferrara, home of the Al Brindisi Bar, whose history dates back to 1100 AD. Titian and Cellini drank and philosophised here in the 15th century.


This is how it would be in a perfect world. In an almost perfect world the new GRAND CONNOISSEUR XL BAR is the right alternative. Handmade in Germany with precious high gloss macassar inlays, it reveals beautifully presented wines, spirits and glasses when opening the doors. A central drawer acts as humidor for about 60 cigars. Below, an air-conditioned wine storage cabinet keeps the best vintages at the ideal temperature.

Grand Connoisseur Bar: Ebony Grigio

After a day of meetings at home, the owner of a GRAND CONNOISSEUR XL BAR from BUBEN&ZÖRWEG can open its doors and pour himself a drink. He can light Hemingway's special "Puro" while enjoying the best sound quality from the built-in HiFi system. All you have to do is sit back, close your eyes and take in the sweetest Buena Vista Social Club tune you've ever heard. You will agree that in an almost perfect world this bar comes closest to perfection!
