The Five Best Bars Near Generator Berlin Mitte
To help you get out and into the best bars within stumbling distance of the Berlin Mitte hostel, Generator has put together a list of our favourites to get you started.
Cosy Cool at Schwarzwaldstuben, Tucholskystasse 48
Situated north from the hostel on Tucholskystrasse (at the intersection with Linenstrasse) Schwarzwaldtuben offers laid-back cosy cool for the art-loving crowd which frequent the nearby galleries on Augustrasse. With some great Germanic-with-a-twist food in large portions there’s little reason to move from this bar. It’s great for a quiet lunch or, if you’ve got a group, it can be an excellent place to sit and chat for the evening.
Cocktails at Bellini Lounge, Oranienburgerstrasse 42/43
Bellini Lounge is set on the end of Oranienburgerstrasse, the same strip as Generator Berlin Mitte; making that walk home just that little bit simpler. The low-lit bar offers everything you could want in a cocktail bar – a classy atmosphere with skilled cocktail makers working their magic and a relaxed set of benches and tables outside, perfect for warm summer evenings people-watching.
Set the Evening on Fire at Fire Bar, Krausnickstrasse 5
Fire Bar is the perfect place to take an evening from a relaxed pint into something a little more hectic. Fire bar turns into a club in the evening, with a huge variety of live performances on offer throughout the year. The bar has its roots in the local music scene, so much so that it even has its own anthem composed and performed by one of the regulars. As a bonus Fire Bar runs an “Afterburner Session” which begins at 6am on Sunday, for those who don’t want to stop.
Squeeze in to King Size Bar, Friedrichstrasse 112b
This tiny bar is made for those looking to get a little closer to the Berlin bar scene. If you don’t know anyone going in, then you’re sure to have made friends by the time you come out. This surprisingly well stocked bar offers a close friendly atmosphere with a packed dance floor and a cracking playlist. It’s a little hard to spot at first glance between the neon signs of tourist bars such as the Oscar Wilde Irish Pub, but it’s worth hunting down.
Share a Secret at L N G (aka Lining Bar), Tucholskystrasse 34
L N G or Lining Bar is a discreet, up-market bar with sharp and cool decor which draws Berlin night-owls in the know. Their cocktails are unbeatable in the eyes of many and the clientele love the status of Tucholskystrasse’ favourite “secret bar”. It can be packed on the weekends, so it’s worth rolling up a little early – during the week it’s a great place to get a drink in preparation for hitting a club later.
Whether you’re heading out for the evening with no intention of returning before daybreak, or just planning to pop out for a quick beer – there’s few better places to start than with Generator Berlin Mitte. Check out our Berlin Mitte city guides.
