For two months, Bebedero has been changing its rules on a few special Sundays. On those days, the cocktail room only entertains women.

Unlike the more raucous ladies’ nights at traditional bars, the Noche de Copas events at Bebedero don’t welcome men at all. This gendered distinction isn’t a capricious choice the three hostesses made to torture men — this isn’t discrimination, guys — but one they made to create a comfortable space.

After all, the main course of the night are the four copas, two glasses of wine and two cocktails, followed by a scrumptious dessert of sex talk.

At my table, dessert started early since I joined two best friends who were already on the topic. They were discussing why a very stubborn man still hadn’t asked one of them out. As I drank the first glass of wine — which came from a bottle of Granbazán etiqueta verde, a crisp and aromatic Spanish white wine — I smiled at our jokes.

We ended up talking all night.

Noche de Copas is an intimate event. It couldn’t be any other way since Bebedero is a small venue that can’t hold more than a few of its chic tables. If you haven’t visited before, it’s located inside the Steinvorth building in downtown San José.

Tickets sold out fast for the first two Noche de Copas. You have to follow Bebedero on Facebook to get the November date as soon as it’s announced so you don’t lose your spot.

Tickets cost $35 and cover your seat, drinks, the speakers — who speak only in Spanish — and a snack dinner of cheese, serrano ham, hummus and nuts.

Hostesses Liz Furlong, the Canadian owner and bartender of Bebedero; Lucía Mercedes, sommelier at Isolina in Barrio Escalante; and Irene Cerdas, sex connoisseur and popular blogger; join forces to guide their own kind of master class.

Mercedes went first and talked to us about wine. The tasting was our first sensual experience of the night.

“We three think we have to break taboos in our disciplines,” she said. “The topic of self-pleasure, that Irene will be talking about later, I will approach through wine.

“We’ll have a date with this historical and aphrodisiac drink. Basically, we will seduce our glasses and, then, we will let ourselves be seduced by the wine.”

Lucía made us smell the white wine and then compare what we sensed with the next glass of a Tempranillo, from Mog Selections’ OES!, a brand she described as “gypsy winemakers.”
