Germany’s capital is well-known for its diverse and lively bar scene so if you’re in Berlin looking for a fun night out, a visit to one or all of these bars would be just the right thing to do.

1. Monkey Bar

This bar takes a lot of inspiration from the animal kingdom – it’s not just the name. They serve creative signature drinks like the Monkey Ponkey and Angry Alpaca while giving customers a great view of the Berliner zoo and monkey house.

2. Fairytale Bar

Cocktails drawing inspiration from fairytales are the norm here. For customers with a great sense of whimsy, Fairytale bar is perfect for you. Outside the bar there’s an illuminated “follow the white rabbit sign” and admittance is achieved only by ringing the bell after which you will be guided in by a fairytale-themed character. The presentation of the cocktails is also inspired by fairytales.

3. Madame Claude

The bar is known for the Claude cocktail but it has a wider range of drinks to choose from. Madame Claude bar is a great place to hang out with your friends as it has side attractions like ping-pong and table soccer. You can also bust out a move or two on the dance floor.

4. Mein Haus am See

It may be more of a cafe during the day but as the sun sets, the drinks start rolling. This retro bar has a great ambiance and also hosts music and art gatherings.

Regardless of your tastes, the bars in Berlin are so diverse that there is something for everyone. If you’re looking to explore more than one bar at a go, then our Free Berlin Pub Crawl would be your perfect excuse.
