This bar is situated inside an old pharmacy on Oranienplatz in Kreuzberg, which dates back to 1861, but was left abandoned after the war until the new building owners, Lukas Schmid and Christoph Mack, opened ORA in May 2015. They revamped the space but kept many of the original features, such as the old wooden medicine cabinets, apothecary jars and tiled floors. Even the facade was kept the same: when the new owners turned on the original neon ‘ORANIEN-APOTHEKE’ sign outside, only three letters lit up – O, R and A – making the name for the new establishment a no-brainer. A visit to ORA is just like stepping back in time, and – in addition to their delicious, innovative food menu (think veal loin with rhubarb and parsnip ice cream) – the bar staff are on hand with top-notch cocktails, including the Cassis Sling (mezcal, cassis and lemon juice). And while you’re in the area, why not continue the vintage theme by watching a film at the nearby Babylon Kreuzberg, a movie theatre that dates back to the 1920s.
