    Come to this fancy bar to enjoy some of the most exquisite cocktails in the whole city. Order a Gin Basil Smash (owner Jörg Meyer created it) or any other drink which is not on the menue.

    Elite atmosphere. Customer service is exceptionally excellent. Pleasant music at a low volume which makes it possible to have an exquisite interlocution. Thanks!

    You can go here to get the same top-end cocktail you already know, or you can ask for something completely crazy. Visiting the place was always good experience and an overall joy

    A great lounge atmosphere and fantastic bar keepers! Just go in there and tell them you want a cocktail with X (e.g. Gin). Be sure to be surprised by their creativity and be sure to enjoy the drink!

    My all time favourite cocktail bar. Sign up for the newsletter to get notifications for special events. Try the Gin Basil Smash. Jörg Meyer invented it.

    Ask for the Dillinger. Creme de Cacao and special Dill Aquavit. It's amazing. Goes well with Gravad Lax.

    If you get there late and you are wondering, whether the three seats outside are the whole thing: enter Narnia through the door on the left.

    One of the best bars in Germany. Friendly personnel, incredibly good drinks. Nice and familiar atmosphere. Try also the tasty cannapées!

    They are famous for their Basil smash! It is definitely a must. The doorman might give you a hard time. Just say that you have been there before and ask for a seat upstairs. ;)

    Very impressed with the creativity and knowledge of the bar staff. A very quiet, exclusive feel to this place. Bit too quiet for me.

    Home of the gin basil smash. Get a reservation or come early on the weekend, as it's in many travel guides now...

    Joerg Meyer’s ‘cradle of the Basil Smash’ had been a stalwart of the list for seven straight years. Sadly it missed out on making an eighth.

    Maybe the best cocktail bar, gets crowded, friendly but slow staff, very hip, but rather young crowd for a hip cocktail bar.

    Nettes Flair und großartige Cocktails. Unbedingt an der Bar betraten lassen, wenn man mal einen neuen Drink kennenlernen möchte. Ohne Reservierung kann es schwierig werden einen Platz zu bekommen.

    Drinks sind sehr gut, aber viel besser ist der sehr freundliche Umgang von Mrs Kupsa und Karkosz, besser geht es nicht :-) Barkarte ist überflüssig bei dem Fachwissen der Bartender

    Geburtsort des Gin Basil Smash - Dementsprechend auch eine Pflichtbestellung hier. Reservierung empfiehlt sich, wenn man Abends einen Sitzplatz haben will.

    Die besten Gin Tonics der Stadt. Erstklasse Service und tolle Drinks. Reservierungen sind empfohlen oder man sollte relativ früh kommen.
