Conversations, Cocktails & Absinthe

The Ocelot bar has been a part of Antigua nightlife for a long time, serving drinks and providing fun for locals and foreigners for seven years. Since April, Ocelot has a fresh new concept – low lights, wooded paneling and comfortable boots for pleasant conversation- and new tasty cocktails, and absinthe – a herbal spirit with very powerful alcohol percentage.

Throughout the history, The Green Fairy (absinthe’s famous nickname) rose to great popularity as an alcoholic drink in late 19th- and early 20th-century in France, particularly among Parisian artists and writers.
Absinthe has often been portrayed as a dangerously addictive psychoactive drug and hallucinogen. The chemical compound thujone, although present in the spirit in only trace amounts, was blamed for its alleged harmful effects. By 1915, absinthe had been banned in the United States and in much of Europe. A revival of absinthe began in the 1990s, following the adoption of modern European Union food and beverage laws that removed longstanding barriers to its production and sale.

The Ocelot bar offers more than 50 different brands of absinthe for a very affordable price. Combined with pure cold water and sugar, it is a sensational drink that will not leave you indifferent.
Apart from delicious absinthe, The Ocelot bar is focused on making traditional and classy cocktails. Antigua’s standards (Mojitos, Margaritas and White Russians) now have a competition in delicious absinthe cocktails.
Pleasant atmosphere, quiet music and tasty drinks are a perfect combination for spending time with your favorite people, talking about every day things, or the beauty of the world. So why don’t you come for a chat?
