I was a bit skeptic about this place because of design, but in reality it looks better compare to photos. The cocktails are amazing - starting from professionally done cocktail menu up till quality of ingredients and different types of ice to fit each cocktail. Enjoyed a lot, it's a place to come back.

This has to be one of my most favourite cocktail bars I've found to date. Me and my boyfriend had read the reviews on here and decided to give it a go. I've actually never written a review on trip advisor but felt I just had to share our experience. The cocktails are some of the best if not the... More

A bit difficult to find under the arches of the S-bahn, but well worth a visit. Impressive bar menu, and when we were there a really nice Welsh barman got the challenge: I like x, y, z - surprise me with a nice cocktail, please. He delivered! If we did not have go for another appointment, we would probably ended... More

My boyfriend and I came here having found it on Trip Adviser. You have to ring a doorbell to get in, which gives an exclusive feel, yet you're still made to feel welcome unlike many others bars in Berlin. There's an extensive cocktail menu, but if you look to be struggling to choose the bar tender assists you, asking what... More

Me and my girlfriend went here on a Saturday evening after doing some research on trip advisor and we were not let down! Bar is very discrete (you have to ring a doorbell for entry). Staff are very welcoming and helped us choose cocktails based on what drinks and flavours we liked. Cocktails range in price, ours were both 11.50€... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
