Exilio Bar
Lounge Area

The secret exile order from King Carlos III of Spain in 1767 to suppress the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) is the reason behind Exilio’s existence. It was in this very building more than 250 years ago, the Jesuits taught, resided and more than likely enjoyed their evening brew, until their sudden expulsion.

The bar counter is made of solid mahogany, and it is carved with 5 figureheads of the ships that will support the bar, these figureheads correspond to the five main ships that took the Jesuits back to Toledo in Spain after the exile. Here with a little shroud of mystery, Exilio has its own secret order on how guests are able to request for their favorite concoction. From its extensive and unique drink menu, enjoy a glass of wine, cocktail or your preferred pint in this exclusive monastic bar.

Luigi’s
Cheese board

After fighting relentlessly against Mussolini as an Italian partisan, Luigi Cagnoni became very disillusioned with Italy and Europe. He decided to leave his beloved Italy and cheekily stowed away on a cruise ship hoping to end up on the shores of America. In order to blend in, Luigi stole a uniform and posed as one of the ship’s common sailors.

Alas the crew got wind of his charade and while going through the Panamá Canal… they threw Luigi overboard! Forced to fend for himself in Panamá, Luigi turned to cook in order to survive. Everything he learned from his Nonna, all her “peasant” recipes he produced with passion for the locals.

Cucina Povera, or cuisine of the people, is a style of cooking best represented, in the past, by lower class of a given society. The concept can be found in every society and is really about making great food with simple, yet high quality, and available ingredients. Cucina Povera involves skilled preparation by knowledgeable cooks using inventiveness and techniques passed down through generations.
