This ‘living room’ style bar evokes the spirit of post-wall Berlin bars in the days when squat parties would last for weeks. When Reindol Klenner first opened the bar seven years ago, he had just one main room. In time, extensions have been made and Wohnzimmer is now quite literally a ‘full house’. A fully fitted kitchen features a refrigerator, welsh dresser, carving knife – in fact, everything including the kitchen sink. Other items of furniture were acquired from flea markets, theatres and even a castle and it’s quite probable that beneath the tobacco stains many are valuable antiques. In particular look out for the verlobungssofa – a double-sided courtship chair where never the knee will meet. The building dates back to 1900 and has always been a traditional German eck kneipe (corner pub); with the wooden bar fittings added in GDR times. During the day coffees and light breakfasts are served, but the interior can feel somewhat gloomy. The cool crowd descend after dark and sofa surf into the early hours. The ultimate house party.
