Their slogan is ‘we love good drinks’ and these are sentiments we share. Located in the shinier part of Kreuzberg, the former Avastar known for its raucous back room parties – has been given a makeover. The new space is hip and stylishly designed , the main room warmly lit and atmospheric. The drinks list is exciting in its length and range. They serve classic cocktails like the Martinez (always a favourite with us) and the Negroni, a range of tiki drinks, including a potent Mai Tai along with a range of more contemporary drinks. Their house creations include the Limonadier Lemonade a mix of rums, lemongrass, orange, Absinthe and grapefruit, the Berlin at Night, which contains a good slug of chili vodka and a vibrant Basil and Limoncello concoction. There’s also an aromatic Bourbon Hibiscus creation and a Mexican Smoked Almond deliciously underscored by mezcal. All their cocktails are well made and attractively presented. The bar staff are also dapper in their attire and many of the bitters and infusions are made in-house. As a result of all these pleasing ingredients, the bar has acquired a strong local following and the mood is relaxed and chilled out rather than overtly hipster or scene-driven.
