Grab a Beer at Clärchens Ballhaus
Clärchens Ballhaus is kind of a one-size-fits-all kind of place without losing any sort of personality. The exterior aches with an antiquated beauty that is slightly subdued by its location – it’s almost hidden in plain sight. Partly a music venue, partly a restaurant, and most importantly a charming beer garden, Clärchens Ballhaus fits any situation. The anachronistic interior mirrors a classic German style with hearty German (and Italian) eats. The exterior is a quaint beer garden sprinkled with twinkling lights, worn benches, and overgrown vegetation juxtaposing a brick-clad wall. It’s not a beer garden celebrated for its size, but rather its romantic allure. Clärchens Ballhaus was and still is a dancehall, making it possible to dance (not move haphazardly to blaring techno) whilst downing some hefeweizens. They also offer daily dance classes that cater to a more traditional type of movement, think waltz or tango. A pint in their quaint beer garden makes you forget you’re in Mitte.
