The credo here is classic bar culture. Some drinks are adaptations of forgotten 1920s and 1930s cocktails; others are inspired by chef Paco Perez’s flavors. Spirits include unusual whiskies and cognacs not otherwise available in the German capital. In the wine gallery, guests can choose from 400 German and Spanish wines. To complement the drinks, delicious tapas are served in the bar and lounge.
Friday and Saturday are DJ Nights.
The bar overlooks the zoo through expansive windows. High-ceilinged and inviting, the lounge shows off many of Patricia Urquiola’s own designs as well as those of others, like a small copper table that looks like metal dots by Dutch design firm Pols Potten or whimsical leather animals – buffalo, rhinos, and bulls – handmade in the UK by the Omersa company.
