Bellini earns the title "best bar in the neighbourhood" not so much due to its excellence but more to lack of competition. There are only some more or less touristy restaurants and some oriental shisha bars close by.
The drink menu is deep and should satisfy all your drinking needs. Prices are high for Berlin standards but okay for the central location.
If you sit at the window or out on the street you can watch hookers trying to get some work.
What annoyed me on my last two visits was the staff. It used to be friendly and attentive. But recently I was was bullied for apparently obstruction access to one of the adjacents chais - even the bar was mostly empty! It didn´t get any fuller in the course of the night either!
It was one of the very few times I left without a tip!!!
