Step away from the pintxos and hubbub of Blai into this oasis of sleek design and unconventional food and drink. Sasha Bar’s name pays homage to founder Leo’s Russian mother – a poster on the wall describes her fighting spirit and welcoming nature, values that imbue the space.
Relax on a vintage sofa while you dine on small dishes like marinated salmon (prepared according to his grandmother’s recipe), steak tartare or beef ravioli & foie. There are many fresh fish choices such as Peruvian ceviche and vegetarian options like the vegan burger.
There are 21 house cocktails, a steal at €7 each; the No Hay Mañana has three kinds of rum, curry, mint, passion fruit and arrives lit afire. Have dinner on Wednesdays and get a free a bottle wine or on Thursdays for a free cocktail, or try the Sunday brunch.
