Quality drinks + good music = a great place to be!
There are a number of bars in the Laiki Yitonia area of Larnaca, but the one that is earning a great reputation since it opened in December 2015 is Mukta Café and Culture Bar....
Mukta is situated in a beautiful restored old building, which whilst preserving the traditional, cultural heritage of Cyprus, with its clever interior design blends old and new perfectly. There are oriental table and chairs and elegant high bar stools lined up by the long bar which is dramatically lit in shades of fuchsia pink and blue. Mukta
has a multi cultural concept and bears all the hallmarks of its creator Paris Christophides, who created the ever-popular Guru Bar.
Mukta already has a reputation for its selection of drinks, which include vermouths, rums and impressive collections of whiskies and gins. There is a good choice of wines, including Cypriot, Greek, Italian and French labels. It is its dynamic signature cocktails for which Mukta is best known including Black Pearl Bellini and Voila le Mojito Marocain - to name just two! Mukta's cocktails are special as they embrace the character of Cyprus being made with many traditional local ingredients.
