The Best Bars in Moabit, Berlin

Moabit is making a name for itself ever since it was emancipated from Tiergarten in 2001. As Moabit explores its own identity, so do the inhabitants and shops that color its parameters. In the process of its evolution, Moabit has become home to some unmissable watering holes. We’ve compiled a list of the best spots in which to enjoy a good drink.

Subito

Pub, Pub Grub, $$$
Bar Orange

Subito stays true to Berlin’s upcycling spirit – what was once a horse station is now a haven for the thirsty party-goers. Hearty and toothsome cocktails are served by friendly staff, and the outdoor beer garden draws large crowds in the summer. There’s also frequent live music and an international atmosphere that make this venue a must-see when in Moabit.

Kallasch& - Moabiter Barprojekt

Bar, Pub Grub, $$$
This music venue and dive bar is a favorite for any and all who have stepped foot inside. Everything about this place is makeshift in the most seductive way; bare walls, neon signs, and plethora of mis-matched furniture. The charm isn’t limited to the rustic and humble interior, but to the very essence of this place itself. It has live shows, music quizzes, and open mic nights, and is the perfect spot to catch the next big thing, something local, or enjoy a drink and a chat with a friend.

New Beer

This spacious and warm neighborhood pub uses its heritage to its advantage. The interior design is delightfully German – a sprawl of wooden tables, soft accents, and pale lights pay homage to the traditional German bar. Draft beer is always on the menu, and traditional German dishes can be served alongside the drinks. With various sports games playing on the TV, sit down to enjoy your pint in one of Moabit’s most traditional watering-holes.

Tirrée

Bar, Cafe, Restaurant, German, Vegan, $$$
With hybrid record store cafes and cake/vintage shops, duality is not a foreign concept in Berlin. Tirrée is a place that balances exceptional coffee and amazing drinks. The inside decor consists of mismatched furniture, antique lamps, and unique artwork, complementing the well-priced beers, coffees, and mixed drinks that make up the menu. Intimate conversation is not a problem in a quaint yet trendy establishment like this.

Kapitel 21

Something that Berlin really does right is using one space to accommodate many different needs. Kapitel 21 is not any one thing. Looking to loosen up? There’s a list for that, a beer, wine, and cocktail list. Looking to get cultured? Look around, there is most likely an art exhibition hosted in its interior. Kapitel 21 is a melting pot of nighttime activities. Colorful and lavish decor add a sense of humor to this multi-faceted watering hole.

Café Mauerwerk

Bar, Pub Grub, German, $$$
craft beer

Thankfully Berlin is making it so every neighborhood totes at least one impressive craft beer bar. Mauerwerk is a brick-lined, almost window-less, craft beer sanctuary in the heart of Moabit. A rotating craft beer draft list ensures freshness and variety for visiting customers, and the foosball table and piano add a playfulness that is already inherent in this establishment. It’s not a bar that runs all night, so night-owls, be prepared to shift to another watering hole after 2am. This is the perfect spot to try some fabulous brews in a place that knows quality beer.
