    American-themed bar with great cocktails. The guy that runs it is an American expat, very friendly.

    A seasonal menu of original cocktails and solid classics, great staff who are wonderfully helpful, and an awesome chill vibe inside. This is definitely one of the best cocktail bars in Berlin.

    A speakeasy that thrives on great drinks and engaging bartenders. Everyone knows everyone. Low music, more conversation. Basic interiors focused on the drinks. Highly recommended.

    Overpriced and not so tasty cocktails. Give it a miss
  • Kim P.
    Stellar cocktail bar in Mitte. The Boulevardier is the best I've had in Berlin.
  • Joshua H.
    Some of the best cocktails I've had in Germany. Definitely worth revisiting.
  • Cody G.
    The menu alone (with its flavour diagram) is worth coming for to get a reference for how to understand cocktails. Bartenders clearly have passion, and are totally welcoming -- worth seeking out
  • Francis K.
    Clever menu, fantastic drinks and friendly staff. What else could you want for a nice happy hour?

    Had a few cocktails here as we couldn't get into Buck and Break. Was cosy and fun
  • Birgit G.
    great atmosphere, great skilled cocktailmixer... why are the cocktails served with no ice and loveless presentation? maybe a trend to go pure? for me the cocktails taste too strong to enjoy w/o ice

    maybe the bartender had a bad day - all our cocktails were absolutely uninspiring. The waitress definitely had a bad day, being pretty snappy. But that's not as important as the quality of the drinks.

    Cosy and speakeasy place to enjoy some of the best cocktails in city. Mixing not many ingredients without ice in some of the best recipes! Use some help from the helpful stuff!

    Most likely some of the best cocktails in Berlin. At the same time, far away from the standard of the best cocktail bars in London. Brandy-based cocktails were all amazing.

  • Alex J.

    Possibly the best cocktails in Berlin. The menu changes consistently but consult the matrix of base spirit & sweetness, it's accurate.

    This trendy cocktail bar features a unique menu with two axis: choose your liquor, then your sweetness preferences. Two or three delicious options await you.

    I read they would have the best cocktails here and I have to admit - they do know what they are doing. Just from the looks of it you wiuldn't expect that kind of quality drink-wise but it's cool. 😊

    The local "American" pale ale is great! It's on the sweet side for an ale, but if you like a more creative-tasting American-style beer you will love this one as much as I did.
