Located in Prenzlauer Berg,The Crossroads is a top flight neighbourhood bar, the kind of place everyone would like as their local, the kind of place where though everyone might not know your name, some people definitely do. It has a great atmosphere and skilled bartenders, a combination which makes it a cut above the usual neighbourhood hang-out. For one thing they have an above average selection of whiskeys, mainly single malts, some of which are hard to find elsewhere. There’s a great selection of Berlin beers. And while it’s not a cocktail bar per se, the head bartender can whip up a majestic Manhattan and a top notch martini. The charismatic and knowledgeable Tino is one of the real draws at the Crossroads; he’s happy to talk about anything you’re interested in and has an appealingly warm manner. The place is small and cosy, dotted with vintage furniture, clocks, lamps and other knick-knacks but not cluttered, the kind of room you can really feel at home in, a haven, with one of the coolest soundtracks in town: Johnny Cash, Marlene Dietrich, and Tom Waits playing in the background as you sit and sip.
