The best bars and clubs in Berlin

Germany’s trendiest town lets you unleash your inner hipster and our list of the top bars will let you head out on the town in style.
Berlin has reinvented itself as a city of the chicest trends, of the most avant-garde art, of the young and fashionable, and its bar scene clearly reflects it. Which is why we’ve sent our hippest hipster insiders to discover the city’s most beautiful, stylish, and delectable bars, cocktail lounges, and clubs, to bring you our top 5 so you can plan your coolest holiday yet.

See and be seen—CSA Bar

Tucked inside what used to be the Czech Airlines facility, the CSA Bar strikes an utterly stylish balance between ‘70s and futuristic design.

The atmosphere, however, has all the relaxed charm of the contemporary, drawing elegant clientele, designers, and model-types to the austere concrete of the Karl Marx Alley in Friedrichshain. Best of all, the drinks—a wide selection of cocktails, spirits, and champagne—are absolutely superb.

Canal-side cool—Club der Visionaere

If one bar could encapsulate the multifaceted and eclectic charms of Berlin, this might be it.

Combining a small bar-come-club, where the city’s trend-setting artists mingle with Berlin’s “it” crowd and dance to the sounds of the city’s top new talent, with a large space of benches and patios, where one can relax along the canal beneath the shade of the large willow tree, this bar has it all.

Beckett’s Berlin—Beckett’s Kopf

Take to Berlin as Ireland’s eccentric writer might have in this stylish hidden bar.

Marked only by a slightly eerie glowing picture of Samuel Beckett’s face, feel yourself transported to a time when cocktails were pieces of daily art and going out was a chance for quiet, relaxed chat with friends.

Warm colours of leather and ocher beneath a haze of smoke set the mood, while the knock-your-socks-off cocktails are to die for.

Weekend chic—Weekend Bar

Ultramodern cool meets trendsetter timelessness, accented by Berlin’s top new bands and boasting a terrace with some of the best views in Berlin: this is the place to be.

Utterly ideal in the summer months, when the wide rooftop terrace comes alive with Berlin’s chicest clientele, the two indoor floors are year-round hives of entertainment.

Exciting bands play almost every night, the dancefloor is always hopping, and the drinks always so cool.

Secret chic—Tausend Bar

Often labeled as Berlin’s top high-end hotspot, you’d surely walk right by if you didn’t know it was there.

Completely unmarked on the outside, beneath the tracks of the Bahnhof Friedrichstrasse, the blank façade conceals a world of avant-garde design and elegant entertainment amongst Berlin’s most fashionable crowd.

Accents of curved glass and metal catch the energetic lights while you mingle with Berlin’s social elites or enjoy the world-class, gourmet dining in the restaurant.
