A veritable Berlin institution, Paris Bar restaurant has long been a favoured hang-out for actors, celebrities, artists, politicos and bohemian wannabes. Open since the 1960s, the restaurant reached its peak of popularity in the 1980s and though most of the ‘in’ scene has now moved to Mitte, it still packs plenty of kudos in ‘see-and-be-seen’ circles. The cosy interior is smothered in artworks by multitudes of esteemed visitors, including many works by the late Martin Kippenburger, a former friend of owner Michael Wurthle. The classic French menu can be a little hit and miss, but then the Paris Bar would be the first to admit its strengths are a genuine boho ambience and a penchant for late-night parties, as opposed to haute cuisine. Book ahead for weekends.
