“Cool, chilled and very Kreuzberg”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

We found this place by accident. Difficult to know it's a bar from the outside. The inside immediately impressed. Cosy artsy with some nice mellow tunes playing. They also showcase a number of acts. Brilliant cheap beers and nice staff to boot. As we say in Edin a barry wee joint. We will be making a return on our next visit.

“Local f-chain bar with tons of character, local vibe = awesome”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Loved this bar - its very small and cosy but you can't deny the decor is AWESOME. Everything is upside down (chairs/tables on the ceiling). There is limited seating but its a perfect place to start your evening with drinks and friends. This is an old brothel so when you walk in through the dresser to head downstairs keep that in mind when you inspect the layout of the place. Really good cocktails (try the Madame Claude cocktail - it was great, as well as the Moscow Mule). Great prices. I also recommend a restaurant down the street that also is popular among the locals in this neighborhood called Das Edelweiss - Gorlitzerstr. 1-3, 10977 Berlin, Germany (Kreuzberg).

“Cool Rock-Alternative Bar”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

If you like rock/new wave/alternative music, this is your bar. I highly recommend it for students. I went there with my wife on Friday and we enjoyed that a lot (we are almost 30 years old). The bar was really cool (please see photos on google) with extremely cheap prices (local beer 2€, whiskey 4€). Not too many people, not too few, just perfect. Ages between 22-32 mostly. And every Friday they have a live with various groups from around Europe.

“Cozy and relaxed”
Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

The venue is not the freshest or cleanest but it's very homely and cozy, comfy couches and cushins and nice lighting. Cheap beer (€2,30) and drinks (G&T, €4). Variable music (some nights live, some nights different DJ's), a famous music quiz on wednesdays that everyone should experience. The theme in the entry is Twin Peaksy with a picture of Laura Palmer, checked floor and red paint. Downstairs (where the bar is) you're through the rabbit hole (i.e the furniture is in the roof).

“A real Berlin feel !”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

I enjoyed the open Mic J.Fox night, down the little cellar listening to a great variety of people singing and playing. The upside-down decor is cool and unusual, the shabby look clearly displayed. Something different and interesting...give it a go :)
