Berlin is an old, historic city born again thanks to a torn-down Wall, a reunified country, and an injection of young, trendsetting people from around the world. A mecca for artists and bohemians, here are the photo-perfect bars that reflect the city’s creative cool.
This plush drinking hole is made from décor salvaged from the palace of The Republic, the parliament of the GDR. The furniture and finishings were liberated from the repressive Reds, to become The Liberate, where you can toast the present with a fine cocktail. It’s chic but never forbidding, as with the best of Berlin bars. Located in the touristic center of town, it’s a high-class selfie shoot, if there ever were such a thing.
