So let’s start. No it’s not the cheapest place to go. So that’s done. But the three of us enjoyed it immensely. Stood by the bar. Great atmosphere and staff (watch out for the guy with the red bow tie he’s a cutie). Well prepared...More

Skip this place. We were asked Eur 100 for a table for 4 pax (no drinks included). Drink list short and overpriced. The show lasted 3 minutes and was boring. Clearly a tourist trap.

When visiting Prinzipal we had high expectations. On the internet I've read the bar has a 20s speakeasy vibe and the best cocktails in town. Honestly the visit just made me sad. The entry fee was high (€10-€50 depending on the type of seat) and...More

6 drinks cost 76 euro. The drinks are nice and well presented but the prices are a scandal. Lots of gins and from all over. Noting that purple can smoke inside this bar so it's smoky. Staff are nice. But you can't justify the prices.

We probably had the wrong expectations of this place. Based on what we had seen on the net, and read upon our reservation, we had expected a dressed up audience and a tongue-in-cheek burlesque show. That was not quite what we got. Showing up in...More

When looking for a digestif, we found this hidden gem. In a very cool and classy bar atmosphere we enjoyed some experiments by the friendly barkeeper. I enjoy trying new things, so I am a big fan of these kind of bar experiences. 👌🏼😁

Just to watch a different show and bar, we decided to go to the PriKreuz, to enjoy the burlesque show with 5 people. At the entrance, you must pay 10€ each (no info on the website) plus the drinks, but this i not a problem....More

I recommend to book in advance, as the bar is very tiny and always busy.
