Klim naar beneden langs de brede trap in de oude kelder. Bezoekers zullen een paar van de oude karren passeren die ooit gebruikt werden voor het vervoer van kolen. De bar strekt zich uit tot diep in de lange, donkere tunnel, slechts verlicht door de glanzende rekken vol flessen en glazen. De barmannen bereiden cocktails terwijl goed gekleed nachtuilen over de bar hangen en geruisloos nippen hun drankjes. Kleine niches, net groot genoeg om een tafel voor twee, zijn te vinden in de bakstenen muur. De chill-out room aan het eind bevat meer niches en zitplaatsen. Drankjes zijn redelijk goedkoop hier, wat bijdraagt aan de populariteit van deze plaats..
A great place for non-alcoholic cocktails and home-made cakes, Café Seidenfaden is part of a rehabilitation centre for female addicts. As you may expect, this place is drug and alcohol free, but there is plenty else to do, with the cafe putting on a variety of different events, lectures and exhibitions. In the summer, customers can sit on the terrace which offers views of the TV Tower on Alexanderplatz. Extremely popular with lesbians.
Hidden in a side alley off the busy Mitte area of Berlin, Bar 3 is surrounded by art galleries and media offices. This certainly reflects on the clientele of the bar, which is filled with the artsy and literary types of Berlin. The contemporary yet relaxed interiors of the bar ensure a free flow of conversation, with the great house wines aiding those conversations. The bar has that distinct smell of alcohol mixed with smoke, and the food is worth a try as well.
Brauhaus Lemke is one of the oldest functioning microbreweries in Berlin; for a city that really loves beer, that's saying quite a lot. The brewery was started by Oli Lemke in 1998 when he put together his own brewing system in his garage. Friends helped him set up the brewing system in an old S-Bahn unit, and in 1999, the Brahaus Lemke served its first beer. Today, visitors can sample the brewery's excellent craft beers, and even take home some bottles of their very own. The brewery also serves up delicious traditional German fare to go with its brews.
With its leather couches and warm brown accents, Alto Bar im Adina Apartment Hotel dons a sleek masculine look. Opened in 2011, this cocktail and wine bar is a great place for business meets or even a casual hangout with your buddies. And if you intent to bring in a date, it rises up to that occasion as well. From DJ nights to live music and theme events, this bar surely has its dose of entertainment planned for its patrons. Relish delicious Aussie inspired fare along with fabulously crafted drinks.
The glamorous hotel and lounge bar at the corner of Prenzlauer Allee and Torstraße is the new home for the rich kids of Berlin's creative elite. While having a reputation among artists and the media crowd, Soho House looks much more like a business lounge that could be found anywhere in the world. The rooftop bar has a pool and a spacious terrace, which serves expensive and assorted drinks. To enter the club you have to have a club card, which has a high yearly fee. If you want to enjoy a glass of champagne without becoming a member, watch out for special events where you may have a chance of getting in. Needless to say, everything at the Soho House is pricey, but of good quality. -Fabian Saul
