Cocktail Bar Massimo
Located in the 15th-century Zackerjan Tower on Old Town’s waterfront, this cocktail bar has views of the Peljesac Channel from the rooftop terrace. Prime seating is located on the upper level, which can only be accessed by carefully climbing a steep, wooden ladder in the inner chamber. Bartenders load the beverages into baskets and use a rope-pulley to haul them up the outside wall. On the ground floor, black lanterns hang over a smaller, enclosed lounge area with wooden floors and cushioned chairs. There aren’t any particular specialty drinks here—the bar mixes everything from margaritas to mojitos—but there are Croatian beers, like Karlovacko, a golden lager.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
