About
Redwood bar specializes in classic cocktails from the prohibition era and friendly welcoming service. We use fresh pressed citrus and homemade bitters in our classic and seasonal creations. With low music and no wifi we wish to create an environment where conversation is the best adornment to our drinks. If you don't know what kind of cocktail you like, have a chat with one of the bartenders. We love to help people find their favourite place on our menu matrix.

Definitely worth the visit. We arrived at almost midnight and were beckoned in by the bar owner, Kevin. So glad we went in, despite the place looking as if it were about to close as the only other couple in the bar left as we arrived. The cocktail menu and recommendations from Kevin were brilliant. Real honest cocktails with no tacky adornment - the drinks spoke for themselves. A refreshingly simple, stripped back and rustic setting. Kevin is an intelligent and interesting fellow who made us feel welcome to the city and explained some of the best ‘true Berlin’ spots to visit. Wholeheartedly recommend.

If you're in Berlin and want to have an amazing drink, look no further! Found the place almost by chance. Although it's quite close to the center, it's off the beaten path, making it a safe heaven from all the commotion of the main streets. The service is just amazing, kindly helping out with the choice by thoroughly explaining all the different drinks. The bartender is just fantastic, have rarely seen someone make cocktails with such precision and dedication. Love the place as well, minimal style, great music and good vibes.

Had the ‘Hot ‘chocolate’ cocktail which was incredible.
Went early evening so very quiet but looks like it’s popular later on.

Came in for a nosey and ended up getting g several drinks. Menu isn't particularly imaginative but what we did order was great quality and the service was impeccable. Lovely friendly atmosphere and felt the staff were all happy and relaxed. Would definitely revisit if we return to Berlin.

This place is a hidden gem! A small bar that wasn't overcrowded at 11 pm on a Saturday night. Helpful and friendly staff. Great selection of carefully crafted cocktails, and you can even have one to go!

Hi Daniel, thanks for joining us at Redwood and for taking the time to write a review. Indeed, you can take a cocktail to-go with one of our picnic boxes complete with thermos and glasses. There are a few parks just around the corner to enjoy them in since we do not have outdoor seating. Hope to welcome you again! Stephanie

The level of quality, time and effort put into each drink is amazing. Drinks are about 9 euro each, with monthly specials at 11 euros each. I ordered a dark & story, my boyfriend ordered a manhattan and old fashioned. We were both enjoyed our drinks.

The bar owners arrange their menu on a sort of grid table, listing the types of liquor along the top (gin, whiskey, tequila, rum, bourbon) and the level of sweetness along the side - all their available drinks are listed in this matrix. Cool concept! Stop here if you want 1 or 2 high quality drinks.

One part alchemy, one part science, two parts artistry with a dash of funk and you have Redwood, the most interesting cocktail bar in Berlin. The crew behind the massive hunk of California redwood that serves as the bar are a perfect reflection of Berlin, beautiful without pretense, hailing from near and far. The cocktails are as inventive as they are authentic. You don't go to the Redwood to be seen, you go to drink, to explore the possibilities.

We walked into this very unassuming bar saying hello to the bartender. She ignored us. Finally acknowledged our existence and sat us at a window table. There was 1 other person in the entire place and he was sitting at the bar. There is zero ambience or style here. The street was being repaired and a port-a-John and rubble and equipment were our view. I did enjoy my specialty cocktail the bartender offered to make. €10 minimum for a drink. I would never go back here.

Ok, for many US expats reading this review, the last place they may want to go is a bar themed after the state of california. But there is a compelling reason you must visit this place.

Not because of the clean minimalist design of the space.

Not because of the ancient illuminated sign over the outside door that just says 'Bar'.

Not because of the huge slab of California Redwood trunk that forms the main bar. (* I don't know if this is reclaimed, but knowing the 'Inhaber' I suspect it is).

Not because of the classic drinks made by mixologists trained by an established bartender from the Bay Area.

Not because it offers Sierra Nevada and Anchor Steam beer instead of the usual German Pilsner/Lager (* This is the only bar in Berlin I know of to regularly carry these beers)

Not because of the big 'California' Flag hanging in the main window.

No, go because it's the only bar in Berlin which is non-smoking. To my Berliner's I love you, but sometimes I want to enjoy my Martini or IPA without tobacco combustion byproducts.
