Not spectacular by way of décor, this tiny Berlin bar is remarkable for its atmosphere. Always full, Minibar attracts a huge variety of characters and is a popular point for all those in pursuit of a night cap. Boasting visitations from Meat Loaf to the locals and all in between, this is a place where conversations are swapped between art students and actors alike, sharing tables with a blend of Berlin in one little bar.
With a living room feeling and exceptional cocktail selection, Geist im Glas shines out amongst its neighbouring contenders. The esoteric wooden furnishings and platforms make the atmosphere and space itself is worth checking out, but the real reason to stop by is the specially infused cocktail creations. Rather than many of the Berlin bars which are purposefully built in a dilapidated style, Geist im Glas is a spot of real charm and quality, with the added bonus of exceptional brunch options.
Broschek is a cozy hideaway with the perfect amicable ambiance, art exhibitions and occasional live music. Lars, the owner, is highly proud of the Lammsbräu, a beer brought in from a microbrewery in southern Germany. With the welcoming atmosphere and hearty food by way of cheese fondue to match, this has the character and charm to warm the winter evenings.
This convivial canal spot with seaside décor and overlooking the Landwehr is a perfect place to position yourself for a casual drink. The former boathouse is home to a friendly ruckus at the weekends, but a lively location all through the week. Staying open late, and boasting a brunch of all brunches come Sunday morning, Ankerklause is a sure fire spot to spend an evening for a laid back, good spirited beverage.
