Bars in Berlin
Berlin, the city that truly has its own time concept or better said “where time is irrelevant” Berlin is our home-base and therefore we would like to apologize in advance for any over emotional or biased opinions. On the other hand, we do think we’ve stumbled across quite a lot of interesting places, old and new for you. Enjoy discovering our favorite places and, who knows, perhaps we shall meet at the bar – ready to order!
Bar in a Jar (Kreuzberg)
Mariannenstraße 29, 10999 Berlin
Izabela the master mind behind this bar creates each cocktail with caution and respect for the ingredients. Its location, right next to the Paul-Lincke-Ufer is perfect for spending summer nights at the water. This is where her innovative bar concept kicks in. Bar in a Jar really does serve you each cocktail in a jar, which makes them perfect for transport to the ‘Ufer’. Go ahead, grab your friends and go down to Izabela to welcome the night @ Bar in a Jar!

Fairytale Bar (Friedrichshain)
Am Friedrichshain 24, 10407 Berlin
‘Once upon a time, hidden away next to a park there was an enchanted place where witches, fairies and dwarfs sat peacefully next to each other. It was told that this place made magic potions that let them all succumb their inhibitions and boundaries.’ This bar truly does take you for an adventurous trip down fairytale lane. Let yourself be surprised and discover your next favorite fairytale!

Hansbach Bar (Friedrichshain)
Samariterstraße 18, 10247 Berlin
This is the kind of bar that everyone needs around their corner. Your kind of ‘Kiez Bar’! There’s different live acts each Monday that bring Berlin’s talented street musicians together. Wednesday’s are for comedy nights and generally every day is for table soccer. Take your drinks outside in summer and feel welcomed no matter how bad your day went. We do highly recommend to try their ‘Schwarzer Hansbach’ as it gets served with salty licorice!
