Last night we spend some time here, having a few drinks. It's a great bar, friendly atmosphere. The bartenders working there on Saturday the 23rd (aug)definitely took great pride in making the most amazing cocktails. We'll be back for more!

Right on top of the famous Auerbach's Keller but a campy and fun decor. Prices reasonable and a quiet place to have drinks and chat (notice the painting on ceiling)

After the wonderful pianist finished her repertoire, Mephisto shrieked from the ceiling rose with a puff of smoke. Great coffee and cocktails too.

Spent an enjoyable evening here drinking well made and reasonably priced cocktails. Comfortable seating and decent service. Amusing Faustian touches and good live music added to the experience. Another review comments that it was smoky, which, periodically during the evening it was. However it's clear from this and other bars that smoking has not been banned in bars and restaurants... More

Like to eat while people puff cigarette smoke in your air supply? Just want a limited choice of cakes in small servings? Perfect. Otherwise run. Fast.

We sat outside for optimal people watching but went inside for a bit to enjoy the atmospheric show that happens from time to time throughout the evening.
