“Wonderful spot to grab a drink and soak up Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Laid back spot on the river with cold beer and lively crowd. It gets especially crowded during the pretheater hour so beware. The also had lovely live music when we went. Didn't eat here, but the pizzas looked great. Really cannot beat this strandbar, I plan to stop back during my next summer visit to Berlin.

Also, not a tourist in view- this seems to be a great local spot.

“One of the best strandbars in Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

You find this strandbar near Museuminsel. The location is perfect at the border of the river spree with palmtrees and loungechairs. In the evening you can dance. Get your drink, sit down watch the people and relax, what more do you want on a hot summers afternoon in Berlin. We have been here twice and it was the best combination of location and people. We also recommend the freshly made pizza´s, they are delicious for under eur 10.

“Relaxing place for a drink”

We have been on holiday in Mitte and this is just across the river. Nice bar, pizzaria , evening entertainment and deck chairs by the Spree. What more could you want?

“+ open-air bar, + nice scenery along river spree with views towards Bode Museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

If you are looking for a nice hangout on a warm summer night in Berlin head to Strandbar in Mitte. The bar is a mix of a beach club and outdoor bar and within walking distance from the Museum’s Island and Hackescher Markt.

It has two levels, one street level where you get your drinks and bar food and a lower level that contains a dance floor. Both areas face river Spree and historic Bode Museum.
From the bridge you even have a scenic view towards the television tower (Fernsehturm).

Every night Strandbar features ballroom dancing and it is fun to participate or just watch the talented couples on the dance floor.

A beer is around EUR 3-4 and you pay a deposit for bottles and dinnerware, which will be refunded after return.

+ open-air bar,
+ nice scenery along river spree with views towards Bode Museum

“Nice, laid back, outdoor bar with dance floor, in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Read about this Place in my (obligatory) Lonely Planet guide and got curious. It was said to be an outdoor bar under palm trees (!) on the fringe of th Monbijou Park by the Spree River, and with a dance floor under the stars where they play "tango, waltz, cha cha and salsa" at night.
And it was, and thereto a very relaxed Place where people (mostly 40 and under) get together and socialize with a beer, a Berliner Kindl (beer with lemon) or a Mojito and sit down by the tables or on folding chairs by the fence to the river.
The night I attended Strandbar Mitte in mid June, the Music theme on the dance floor was Swing Music from the 40's and after. Lots of people thronged on the wooden floor dancing the night away...
