Ferdinand

One bar three strikes: Friendly atmosphere, great food and a cool crowd!

If you’re looking for a place with distinct character, a chill ambiance, great food and a cool crowd just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of student-loaded bars in Hamra, Ferdinand is the place for you. Inspired by the story of Ferdinand the bull who liked to sit quietly under a cork tree, and smell the flowers rather than fight with the other bulls, Ferdinand, the bar, is just as laid-back as its namesake.

Decorated in warm tones with dim lights and a friendly atmosphere, Ferdinand is as welcoming as bars can get. The large leather couch at the center of the place may fool you into thinking that you are in Friends' Central Perk. The main chandelier of candles at the entrance is a sight to marvel at: thousands of candles left to melt at their whim to create unexpectedly beautiful forms. Crowded with intellectuals, foreigners, artists and students, this place is the dream place for people who are looking for a new scene. If you want to read a book, surf the web, have a bite, a drink or a shot while enjoying good music, Ferdinand is the place to be. Do not miss out on their specialty burger, made with an in-house prepared blueberry jam that will put other burgers you may have had to shame. The attentive owner, whose presence is always subtly felt, gives a sense of comfort and confidence in the Ferdinand experience.
