In a perfect world, one should be able to savor the finest things in life directly at their original locations....

Bars, the drinks they serve and the flavourful cigars you can smoke there, should be no exception. Following the example of the world-class writer and “puros” lover, Ernest Hemingway, the best Daiquiris have to be flavoured at the Floridita, in the heart of the Cuban capital of La Havana, and the best Mojitos, just a few blocks away, at the La Bodeguita del Medio. Both these drinks demand to be accompanied by an exquisite Arturo Fuente, Montecristo or Cohiba cigar. A few thousand miles away, in charming Paris, the same Hemingway would have certainly recommended the fabulous martini served at the bar of the Ritz Hotel in Paris. The same drink, so the legend goes, he helped popularise in the States after the war.

At Harry´s, in Piazza San Marco, the best choice could only fall on the remarkable Bellini cocktail, named in honour of the work of Venetian painter Giovanni Bellini. Not far from the famous canal city, Ferrara is home to the Al Brindisi Bar that traces its history back as far as 1100 AD. Titian and Cellini drank here in the 15th century, and Copernicus lived above the bar while studying at Ferrara University in the early 1500s.

However, that would be in a perfect world. In a near perfect world, the new GRAND CONNOISSEUR XL BAR is the right alternative. Handcrafted in Germany with precious

high-gloss Macassar inlays, the opening of its doors reveals beautifully presented holders for wine, spirits and glasses. A central drawer acts as a functional humidor for approximately 60 cigars, and below, a climatic wine storage cabinet keeps your best vintages at the correct temperature.

So, once home from a day full of meetings, the owner of a BUBEN&ZORWEG GRAND CONNOISSEUR XL BAR can open its doors, pour a drink and light up that special “puro”, while enjoying the best quality sound coming from the inbuilt HiFi system.

You only have to lean back, close your eyes and listen to the suavest Buena Vista Social Club tune you ever heard, and reflect that in a near perfect World, this bar is the closest to perfection!
