With its encyclopedic cocktail list and covetable waterside location this is one of Hamburg’s top bars and it kind of knows it. But you can’t really begrudge this bar a degree of attitude as it gets so many things right. Inside it’s all leather sofas and black marble with large mirrors opening up the space and well-chosen art on the walls. The view of the Inner Alster adds to its appeal and the atmosphere is chic, stylish and unswervingly upmarket. You pay for the privilege of course, but while drinks prices are steep, they’re not unreasonably so, and the place ticks so many boxes, that the expense is definitely worth it.
