1. Museo Chicote (Wikipedia, in Spanish).
Excerpt (in translation): "The Chicote Museum, formerly known as Bar Chicote or Perico Chicote bar, is a place on Calle Gran Vía No. 12 in Madrid, opened in 1931 by Pedro Chicote, the barman of the Hotel Ritz, as one of the first cocktail places in the Spanish capital. The "Chicote Museum", as such, was born in 1940, when Perico decided to show the public his collection of almost ten thousand bottles of different drinks stored in an adjoining basement, a figure that according to some sources reached 20,000 copies, then considered the best collection in the world of it kind, to the point that Aristotle Onassis offered the barman thirty million pesetas for it."
