If it’s American meat you're after, then this self-described American steakhouse and bar has got you your fix. The Bird prides itself on three things: the quality of its beef, its straight-forward American atmosphere, and its uncompromising attitude towards making the best food with the freshest ingredients available. Run by a couple of New York expatriates, the menu here is filled with sassy commentary and is dominated by imported American-beef steaks and tangy burgers, such as The Filthy Harry (bacon and Cheddar cheese). Rolls of paper towels sit on the tables to indicate that things might get a little messy, as the food is so delicious.
As the name implies, the door is a significant factor in this bar, particularly because it can be rather hard to navigate past it. The Green Door is one of Berlin's prime spots for "seeing and being seen." The clientele is a homogeneous display of chic, as the Green Door is a firm favorite among Berlin's glittering VIPs. That said, they serve great cocktails at prices that are comparable to other bars in the area. The interior oozes charm with its long wooden counter and copious amounts of green-colored kitsch. To sum up, this is a great place for a late-night drink or two.

The former power plant's mammoth size and hedonistic rawness guarantee a unique experience.
Just a few minutes away from the bustling Kurfürstendamm boulevard lies the Irish Harp Pub, a traditional Irish pub.

Though beer is the staple drink here, there is also some amazing Irish malt whiskey and liqueur on offer.

The Irish Harp also organizes nightly entertainment in the form of live Irish folk music and other genres of music and special quiz nights.
