A bartender and a decorator joined their passion for music, drink and aesthetic ,creating kibar to the monastery of Carol. The building of Kibar is a Venetian monastery of the sixteenth century which has been characterized as a monument and has been restored by the world renowned sculptor Carol who curates the place until today. Groovy sounds and refreshing cocktails in an open air place.

A lovely open air bar space, with 3 bars to serve from, and tasty cocktails. At the time we were there the number of guests outnumbered the team, but it took 20 minutes to get a cocktail, and they only noticed they didn't have ingredients...More

Fine bar in a beautiful setting. Wide selection of bottled beers, including stuff from local small breweries. Prices were high, but the visit was worth it.

Great music, tasty drinks, nice service, nice people. All that situated in an indoor yard with great cooling system. As far as I know, it used to be actually a monastery. Usually crowded, so better go early. I totally recommend a visit!
