World famous for its combination of burgers and Transatlantic beverages, The Bird is a retro dive bar and steakhouse dressed up in a classic New York style. Exposed brick walls adorned with license plates and photos add to the charm of this quirky haunt, which is packed every day with both tourists and locals.The Bird’s drink menu is very American in persuasion, running the gamut from frozen (and we mean frozen) margaritas to Brooklyn lagers and west coast pale ales, but some European offerings like Schneider Weisse and La Chouffe bottled beers ensures that no-one forgets where they really are. Cocktails are of the classic variety – think Cuba Libres and Moscow Mules – and there is also a range of whiskies and spirits. For those seeking an after-work pick-me-up, The Bird runs daily happy hour specials on beer and shots, to help wash down their famous super-spicy hot wings. Talking of the food, The Bird is most famous for its grilled or griddled burgers, all made from premium beef and constructed with care and attention. There’s also the aforementioned chicken wings (whose sauce can be made to a variety of spice levels), salads, steaks and chilli cheese fries. Basically, a big ‘ol taste of America in East Berlin.
