The capital of Germany is also the largest city in the nation. It has an intriguing history, and has now emerged as one of the world’s top travel destinations. Berlin has some truly great attractions and incredible things to see and do. One of the things that makes Berlin so legendary is it’s famous nightlife. Below are the coolest bars Berlin has to offer.
Salt n Bone
One of Prenzlauer Berg’s most modern bars, Salt n Bone, has been making waves since its opening. The bar and pub offers drinks and good sustenance in a comfortable and quiet environment, complete with simple wood chairs and tables. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, making the experience even more pleasant. The clientele is a great mix of expatriates, locals, and tourists.
Hidden behind dark window ornaments next to a flower specialist and a couple of kebab shops, Prinzipal Kreuzberg has remained a well-guarded secret. The entrance to the bar is through an unmarked door, where you ring a bell to gain admittance. Once inside, prepare to go down a rabbit hole, complete with great service and tasty drinks.
Club der Visionäre
Located on a terrace by the coast on a small street facing the river Spree, this small bar-club is one of the best options for the Berlin summer party. Apart from the wooden decks and some quiet seats, there is a small live concert area with incredible acoustics, where bands and DJs play until the wee hours of the morning on weekends. There is also a second road-level area complete with a pizzeria. Unwinding under the willows to enjoy the view with a tasty drink and some great music is a wonderful way to spend an evening in Berlin.
This highly rated cocktail bar is difficult to find if you do not know it is there – a portrait of Samuel Beckett is the only sign that you’ve reached the bar. Once you’ve arrived, you have to ring the doorbell to be let in. Then, you’ll find yourself in a refined and intimate space that includes two rooms, one of which is non-smoking. The atmosphere is dimly lit, with Chester sofas and armchairs, plus a beautiful menu. Fans of this bar rave about the unique drinks served there, as well as the comfortable environment.
Located in the Ritz-Carlton, this bar does not offer the same cultural immersion as some of the others on this list, but it makes up for it with its wide array of innovative drinks. The cocktails are unique creations, and visitors are immersed in an experience of aromas and tastes. At this fancy bar, you’ll have the opportunity to taste cocktails unlike any you’ve ever had before.
