Melbourne’s Best Bars – Berlin Bar – Review

Have your identification papers at the ready! 

Berlin Bar is one of individuals hidden treasures, waiting patiently to be found by the masses. Decadently fitted out, Berlin Bar exudes the inventive fashion and prowess that set Melbourne’s excellent cocktail bars apart. And the greatest component is it’s truly two bars in one! 

The Berlin Bar transports you appropriate to into the heart of 1960’s Berlin just stick to the cobblestone alleyway up Corrs, slip by means of the red-oak door and up two flights of dimly lit stairs, previous the burlesque bar on the landing. Here you will be greeted by a locked iron cast door. Press the buzzer and wait – a personnel member will be with you shortly to verify your credentials and lead you in to the sophisticated West Berlin parlor, replete with white and brown leather upholstery. 

If thats not to your fancy then you may well try out sneaking over the border, through Checkpoint Charlie and in to an East Berlin bunker. 

Right here you can sit by your really very own piece of the Berlin wall, exactly where ammunition crates and even a bathtub – you study that correct – exchange the want for regular tables. 

The bar is generously stocked with all the usuals as properly as some quite uncommon imported drinks. There is a highly customized cocktail menu on supply, with a host of exclusive concoctions and, at $ twenty each, you’d count on practically nothing less. Beers, wines and spirits are a touch on the high-priced side, but its essential to bear in mind this bar provides table support and only admits a reasonably modest variety of patrons at when.So at least you will not want to wait in line for a drink. 

Although Berlin Bar has a wide appeal to numerous, its pricing tends to exclude the younger crowd. Most Berliners are mid-20’s or later on with just a hint of pompous sophistication. 

As a last touch, suspended over the staircase entrance, a red-light sign reads “Ich bin ein Berliner,” President Kennedy’s infamous gaffe the place he proclaimed himself to be a jam doughnut, rather than a citizen of Berlin. And who knows? With all the alcoholic goodies on supply right here, you as well, may be speaking in tongues by the night’s end. Bookings vital.
