Bar am Lützowplatz
One of the best cocktail bars in Berlin, sixty minutes can last an eternity at this classic cocktail bar – especially if you turn up between 5pm and 9pm when Bar am Lützowplatz hosts the longest happy hour in the world. As further enticement, the bar is a champagne-devotee’s paradise, with 25 to choose from and claims to serve the best Mai Tai in the world (apparently it’s all about getting the measures right). A perennial favourite with pretty much everyone, Lützowplatz does exactly what it says on the packet – the cocktail selection is all about the classics and more freestyle innovations are kept to a minimum. The long cocktail bar stretches into infinity, with a collection of Le Corbusier easy chairs at one end of the room. Made entirely of wood and steel, it’s hard to believe the timeless interior was conceived almost 23 years ago.
