Hg2 : The Hedonist

Scotch and Sofa

Typically unusual among Berlin’s bars, it’s not hard to find Scotch and Sofa; just look for the Elvis posters and plethora of retro furnishings – sofas included – that cram the large windows. Step inside what could be your grandparents’ home, were it not for the whisky bottles behind the bar. The flock wallpaper, velour lampshades and framed family portraits are textbook 1950s prefab. Only a briefcase-carrying businessman cooing ‘honey, I’m home’ could complete the look. Downstairs the furnishings become a little more outre, illuminated only by dim red light; a sofa can be found on a fur-covered windowsill with a broken TV set looming ominously in the corner. Bar service can be frosty, but that doesn’t deter the crowds, who are young, mixed and comfortably clear of the cutting edge. Sunday nights usually offer something suitably kitsch: Elvis and Hit Parade nights are not uncommon.
