Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Berlin

Bateau Ivre
A cafe to some a bar to others Bateau Ivre is a Kreuzberg institution.
Bellman
Distressed walls candlelight and an imposing wooden bar: pure old school Kreuzberg.
Buck and Breck
The smallest cocktail bar in Berlin, Buck and Breck seats only 14, but is worth the wait if you can nab a seat as the cocktails here are artfully crafted. 
Clarchens Ballhaus
A charming garden café by day and dedicated dancing (think tango and swing) club by night.
Gainsbourg – Bar Américain
A West Berlin institution this small lively bar is very popular with the locals.
Kaffee Burger
Kaffee Burger eschews the rather too-cool-for-school vibe that pervades other Mitte venues.
Lebensstern
A 1920s glamour bar that prides itself on the quality of its cocktails, and with 600 types of rum available, it's easy to see why. 
Newton Bar
Probably the most famous bar in Berlin the Newton Bar is firmly fixed in the tourist lexicon.
Saphire Bar
The stylish ambiance sheds any stuffy whisky pretensions.
Scotch and Sofa
A quintessential example of the eclectic styling which typifies East Berlin's bar scene.
Stue Bar
The Stue Bar has become a much talked about cocktail bar, for the quality of the drinks, it's slightly hidden location and the ostriches the bar overlooks.
Windhorst
A small but classic cocktail bar with a great atmosphere.
Würgeengel
A charming alternative to Oranienstrasse indie kid and metal mosher bars.
