Alexanderplatz is a vibrant, bustling epicentre in Berlin. As one of the largest public squares, the area is alive with shops, cinemas, tourist attractions, restaurants and tonnes of nightlife. Visitors don’t have to wander far to find the right bar, no matter what the occasion. Here are the best bars in and around Alexanderplatz to get you started.
Looking for a cocktail and some live entertainment? Then Knutschfleck Berlin is the place to be. Located in the heart of Alexanderplatz, this fun-packed bar has karaoke parties, variety shows, burlesque workshops, DJs, live music and so much more. The bar also has a rather unique cocktail menu, offering a ‘cocktail stock exchange’, whereby the prices change based on the demand. Knutschfleck also serves up plenty of local beer, wine and snacks, with a plentiful bar-food menu featuring all the Berliner favourites. For dinner and a show, or cocktails and a wild atmosphere in Alexanderplatz, this is the bar to head to.
The ultimate easy spot, Bierbar Alkopole is the perfectly located watering hole when you’re sightseeing, or shopping around Alexanderplatz. With a range of local beers on tap, a friendly atmosphere and a kitschy interior, this well-placed bar is the right spot to start out a night in Alexanderplatz.
Sip cocktails sky-high at Bar 203, located inside Berlin’s iconic TV Tower. Standing tall as Germany’s highest structure, the TV Tower promises sweeping city-views and a sleek interior, as the rotating sphere-bar takes guests on a journey around Berlin. While this bar definitely isn’t a local spot, it is a glamorous and stunning experience to indulge in when visiting the city.
Craft beer and German shuffleboards find a home at Kaschk. Until 6 pm this Scandinavian-styled joint serves up a selection of treats and amazing third-wave coffee, acting as a café-bar hybrid. Once the sun sets (or before if you fancy), visitors can enjoy the huge selection of local and Scandinavian craft brews, which the friendly, knowledgeable staff are always happy to help you navigate. Complimenting the laid-back vibe, the bar’s interior is wood-heavy, cosy and warm, boasting an unmissable downstairs shuffleboard area. Here guests are invited to play German-style shuffleboard, or watch as the pros battle for the champion title. Located close to Rosa-Luxemburg station, this joint is just one station over from Alexanderplatz, or 10 minutes walk from the square’s centre.
