More tips for my follower coming to Berlin . . .
According to legend, the most perfectly mixed cocktail can be found in the Victoria Bar. After I’ve had a few, I can’t tell the difference anyway, but you should probably give it a shot ;-)
All I can say about White Trash is that it used to be much cooler than it is now in its relatively new location. It’s also the first place I ever saw someone eat a cheeseburger with a knife and a fork. Still, as for hanging with lively crowds, this joint definitely has its appeal.
If lounging on a terrace by the Spree (river) sounds appealing, head to Spindler & Klatt. This is provided, however, that Berlin warms up enough to a temperature approaching summer. If not, inside is pretty cozy, too, with those lounge beds that I think are a bit dangerous when combined with drinking and strangers ;-)
Someplace I want to try but haven’t yet is 3 Schwestern. It’s located in the Kunstquartier Bethanien (Bethanian Art Quarter), and there’s a lovely garden outside that turns into a party place in the evenings.
Though I don’t hang out much in Prenzlauerberg, I understand that Anna Blume is a lovely place to have breakfast and watch the world go by.
