17 Incredible Underground Bars In Berlin

BuzzFeed - Latest 2015-08-25


Escape the tourists in bars that even the locals have difficulty finding.

Beckett's Kopf

Beckett's Kopf

Hidden in Prenzlauer Berg, this infamous Berlin bar is marked only by a portrait of Irish playwright, Samuel Beckett in the window – and you'll need to ring the doorbell before they let you in. Inside you'll find two sumptuous rooms (one, blessedly, for non-smokers), terribly naughty pictures on the walls, and cocktail menus hidden inside books. While the menu is a great one, it's worth going off piste to ask for a bespoke cocktail to taste. It's something they do very, very well.


Le Croco Bleu

Le Croco Bleu

The brainchild of Berlin bar maestro, Gregor Scholl, you'll find Le Croco Bleu in the engine room of Prenzlauer Berg's old Bötzow Brewery. Legend has it that during World War II the basement played home to two crocodiles from the Berlin Zoo, giving the bar its name. The interior is as beautiful as the cocktails, with ethereal blue lighting and vibrant green leather sitting alongside the original machinery.

Prinzipal Kreuzberg

Nipple tassels, revelry and stonkingly good cocktails... what more could you want? A little slice of 20s burlesque in Berlin, Kreuzberg describes itself as a 'rabbit hole' – one leading to a far more adult Wonderland – and embodies the Weimar speakeasy aesthetic made so famous by Cabaret.

G&T Bar

G&T Bar

Don't be put off by this bar's touristy location in Friedrichstrasse. Hidden in the backyard of a building, it's suitably out of the way to avoid the rabble. AND it's also stocked with over 100 gin brands. So skip the vodka and head over to chat all things gin with the bartender, while sipping on the bar's namesake. Because everyone knows the best vodka is the juniper-flavoured kind.
