Mixologists are upping their game at these slick speakeasies, where the drinks are flawless and the ambiance impeccable.
While Berlin continues its reign as one of Europe’s great nightlife capitals, these days the nocturnal scene is increasingly diverse. Pulsating techno temples still lure in thousands each weekend, but those in search of more sophisticated diversions often find themselves gravitating toward these upscale watering holes.
Bathed in a dull crimson glow and named for playwright Samuel Beckett, this speakeasy in Prenzlauer-Berg specialises in classic tipples with a twist. Bartenders can mix up an expertly balanced Blood and Sand or Aviation, but are equally happy to rise to a challenge. Ask them to concoct something special off the menu and you won’t be disappointed.
The olfactory inclined will love this unique concept bar at The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin, where all of the signature libations are inspired by fine fragrances. Whether you prefer to wear a spritz of perfume by Chanel, Bulgari or Giorgio Armani, you may just find its match here. With plush leather chairs and artfully arranged blooms, the interior is one of the city’s most stunning.
Long before Sazeracs and barrel-aged Negronis became ubiquitous around this town, Stefan Weber, Kerstin Ehmer and Beate Hindermann at Victoria Bar were already way ahead of the game. In addition to serving some of the best drinks in town, this West Berlin charmer hosts occasional cultural events, like their regular Sunday afternoon lecture series. To give you an idea of what sort of place this is, the owners released a book about the storied bar a few years ago entitled The School of Sophisticated Drinking.
For craft cocktail aficionados, it doesn’t get better than this bespoke-only bar, where award-winning mixologist Atalay Aktas devises original potions according to his whims and patrons’ moods. Although he excels at all the classics, you’ll enjoy your visit more if you trust his expertise and allow him to experiment.
