Yes, you read the name correctly, and you’re right, it sure does sound a lot like ‘Charlie Sheen’, doesn’t it? While we still haven’t been able to confirm the precise reason why Sharlie Cheen has been named in a strikingly similar manner to the infamously hard-partying actor extraordinaire, we do know it’s one of our new favorite bars in Berlin. We’re enthralled by plenty at Sharlie Cheen, but let’s start with the design of the space, shall we? As you enter, your eyes you’re bound to land across the sets of stylish hexagonal honeycomb-esque art pieces bathed in a sumptuous purple light that snake their way across the ceiling. They are real showstoppers, and make walking under them through the venue feel like strolling a catwalk. The rest of the decor is as fashionable as it is fun, with your walk ending in a back room with a collection of posters featuring iconic pop culture figures on the wall. As cool as the venue looks, it would all be for naught if the drinks didn’t hold up their end of the bargain, and we are happy to report that they do that and more. The cocktail card is full of both unique tipples that we haven’t seen or tried in Berlin yet and all the tried-and-true standards you would expect, all doled out by a bunch behind the bar who knows how to have fun. Sharlie Cheen: definitely ‘winning’.
