Colorbar with labels on top

Hi,

I'm trying to plot a horizontal colorbar with labels on top. I can use

axcbar = fig.add_axes([0.2, 0.85, 0.6, 0.03])
axcbar.xaxis.set_ticks_position('top')
cbar = fig.colorbar(s, cax=axcbar, orientation='horizontal')

but then I lose the ticks on the bottom of the colorbar. However, setting

axcbar.xaxis.set_ticks_position('both')

causes the labels to be on the bottom. Is there a way to have labels on the top while keeping ticks on both the top and bottom?

Thanks,

Thomas

The api related to ticks and ticklabels is a bit confusing, at least
for me. So, often, it seems best to directly change the tick
properties.

for t in axcbar.xaxis.get_major_ticks():
    t.tick1On = True
    t.tick2On = True
    t.label1On = False
    t.label2On = True
