Berlin Bar is some of those hidden treasures, waiting patiently can be found by the masses. Decadently fitted out, Berlin Bar exudes the creative style and prowess that set Melbourne’s great cocktail bars apart. And the most effective part is it is two bars in a single!
The Berlin Bar transports you to into one’s heart of 1960’s Berlin; just follow the cobblestone alleyway up Corrs, slip through the red-oak door and up two flights of candle lit stairs, after dark burlesque bar on the landing. Here you will soon be greeted by a closed iron cast door. Press the buzzer and wait – a staff member will soon be with you shortly to verify your credentials and lead you in the sophisticated West Berlin parlor, replete with white and brown leather upholstery.
If that’s never to your fancy then you might try sneaking within the border, through Checkpoint Charlie and into an East Berlin bunker.
Here you are able to sit by your own piece of the Berlin wall, where ammunition crates and even a bath – you read that right – replace the necessity for regular tables.
The bar is generously stocked with the usuals in addition to some very unusual imported drinks. There’s a highly personalized cocktail menu on offer, with a bunch of unique concoctions and, at $20 each, you’d expect nothing less. Beers, wines and spirits really are a touch on the expensive side, 호빠 but its important to consider this bar provides table service and only admits a relatively small number of patrons at once. So at the very least that you do not need to hold back in line for a drink.
Although Berlin Bar has a wide appeal to many, its pricing tends to exclude younger crowd. Most Berliners are mid-20’s or later with just a trace of pompous sophistication.
As your final touch, suspended above the staircase entrance, a red-light sign reads “Ich bin ein Berliner,” President Kennedy’s infamous gaffe where he proclaimed himself to be a jam doughnut, rather than a citizen of Berlin. And who knows? With all the alcoholic goodies on offer here, you too, might be speaking in tongues by the night’s end. Bookings essential.
