Buck and Breck
While Buck and Breck is tiny, it is among Europe’s best places to go for cocktails – if you can find it, that is. The speakeasy-style bar, previously rated the best in Germany and 16th best in the world, isn’t visible from the street; you’ll have to look for a discreetly labelled doorbell at the address, next to a police station, to buzz in. Inside, it has sleek black furnishings and a 14-seat communal, island-style table, one side of which is devoted to the mixologists who pour from unlabelled bottles identified only by coloured bands. Order from the bar’s signature menu, or have the bartenders design a drink for you. Don’t expect to instagram your drink, though – in true speakeasy fashion, no phones are allowed. The barstools fill up fast, so arrive right when it opens to make sure you can grab a seat.
