“Located in a quieter part of town not far from Skanderberg Square, Hemingway has a friendly atmosphere, over 100 types of rum—that’s it’s specialty liquor—and old-fashioned décor reminiscent of the 1970s and ‘80s in Albania, but with a bohemian twist. Fittingly, the music playing inside is always jazz. Foreigners may be surprised because here they will find the same quality of cocktails like in bigger cities like London or New York.”
