Melbourne’s Best Bars – Berlin Bar – Analyze

Have your identification papers at the ready!
Berlin Bar is one of those hidden treasures, waiting patiently to be found by the masses. Decadently fitted out, Berlin Bar exudes the creative style and prowess that set Melbourne’s great cocktail bars apart. And the very best part is it is two bars in a single!
The Berlin Bar transports you right to into one’s heart of 1960’s Berlin; just follow the cobblestone alleyway up Corrs, slip through the red-oak door and up two flights of candle lit stairs, past the burlesque bar on the landing. Here you will be greeted by a locked iron cast door. Press the buzzer and wait – a staff member will be with you shortly to verify your credentials and lead you in the sophisticated West Berlin parlor, replete with white and brown leather upholstery.
If that’s not to your fancy then you definitely might try sneaking over the border, through Checkpoint Charlie and directly into an East Berlin bunker.
Here you can sit by your individual piece of the Berlin wall, where ammunition crates and even a tub – you read that right – replace the necessity for regular tables.
The bar is generously stocked with all the current usuals as well as some very unusual imported drinks 호빠알바. There is a highly personalized cocktail menu being offered, with a bunch of unique concoctions and, at $20 each, you’d expect nothing less. Beers, wines and spirits certainly are a touch on the expensive side, but its important to remember this bar provides table service and only admits a relatively small number of patrons at once. So at least you never need to hold back in line for a drink.
Although Berlin Bar features a wide appeal to numerous, its pricing will exclude the younger crowd. Most Berliners are mid-20’s or later with just a hint of pompous sophistication.
As one last touch, suspended above the staircase entrance, a red-light sign reads “Ich bin ein Berliner,” President Kennedy’s infamous gaffe where he proclaimed himself to become a jam doughnut, rather than citizen of Berlin. And who knows? With all the current alcoholic goodies being offered here, you too, may be speaking in tongues by the night’s end. Bookings essential.
