We have friends. They are crazy. Most of the time. They love tasting food, Vilnius, music and other great things. Sometimes they turn up at weird places. And then they write about them. And then we use them to tell you more about Vilnius and its secrets. Long story short, a friend of Tasters Team (well, translation of “Degustatori? komanda“ to English doesn’t sound as good as in Lithuanian) went to a really secret bar “One Two Bar” in Vilnius. And that’s a story how to find it.

The home of good coffee that is “No Sugar” has a secret. After the last customers have left, the staff move all the tables, turn off the lights and open the basement – quality drinks, great music and a crowd of sassy locals is what you’ll find here.
Entering is the fun part – there are no queues, no one smoking, not a single hint there might be something going on. On a day when a party is in full swing downstairs, the entrance will look just as it does in this article’s picture.
Go ahead and step up to the door. When you get close enough, the doorman will open it for you. It’s completely dark on the ground floor, but there’s a light shining from the basement, so go ahead and make your way down the stairs.
It can get a bit posh at times, but I’ve shown up in jeans and sneakers more than once – the place is all about having a good time. In fact, they’ve got some of the friendliest bartenders in town, who’ll be happy to mix you a drink that’s not on the menu, just ask.
And if Platform 9 3/4 from Harry Potter was what you thought of when reading about entering the place, you might also want to keep an eye on the paintings inside One Two. Was that one really facing the other way just a minute ago? Or was that one too many drinks?
