Cozy and perfectly located on the historic Gendarmenmarkt, one of Berlin’s most beautiful squares, the Listo Lounge is everything you could expect from a relaxed hotel bar – and so much more.

Located in the Hilton Berlin hotel’s lobby, this lounge exudes coziness with its plush couches and working fireplace. You’ll probably want to peruse the library and stay warmed up all day in this oaky and brassy hideout. The modern and inviting armchairs will make it the perfect spot for a coffee and business meeting or even a quick lunch. The menu, while not extensive and rather on the pricey side, offers an array of international snacks, tasty burgers and salads. Pair it up with a pick from the wine list or a signature cocktail to wind down after a long day of meetings. And while you’re at it, why not stay all evening?

Come sundown, the lounge transforms itself. The dim lights and warm, roaring fire make the perfect backdrop for a small gathering with friends or colleagues. From Wednesday to Saturday, live music performances ranging from guitar solo artists to singers and piano or saxophone players create a chilled and inviting ambience. Sometimes all you need when you’re away for business is a quiet evening curled up by the fire with nice music a great cocktail in hand. To pair with the atmosphere, we recommend either a classic Old Fashioned or the funky Hugo, a refreshing combination of elderflower syrup, fresh mint, lime and prosecco. The cocktail list is small, but that just means that each drink is mastered to perfection, leaving no room for disappointment.

Put this cozy spot on your list if you’re visiting town this winter. If you’re lucky, you might even catch the gospel choir coming to perform every Saturday during the Christmas season. What more do you need to get in the holiday cheer?
