Haifisch Bar – a Kreuzberg classic

Be daring – you won’t see anything from the outside and that is the point. Undetected drinking of cocktails in a ‘laisser faire’ atmosphere. The staff is friendly, the drinks are o.k., the prices too and smoking is allowed – what more can you ask for if you want to do nothing but another drink.

Beckett’s Head – You might loose yours

Countless bars offer cocktails, but when it comes down to them being really well done and served in a proper glass and by someone who does know about spirits, ‘Beckett’s Head’ is the place to be. About 20 people max fit into this tiny, dark bar in Berlin’s night district Prenzlauer Berg. The cocktail menu comes with extracts of Samuel Beckett’s books and if you really have no idea what to order just tell the barkeeper your favourite ingredients, sit back and enjoy.

By the way: cash only.
