A classic among the classics in Prenzlauerberg, located on a corner facing the Helmholtzplatz. Classic because the bar follows the unwritten interior design rules of many places here in Berlin: a mix of various furniture where finding two similar chairs is a challenge, but with comfortable large sofas. And as claimed by its name, the Wohnzimmer or “Living-room” makes you feel at home. It may not be the best looking furniture but they are perfect for chilling in.
As you enter by passing through the double door you can either go to the left and stay in the non smoking room, order a drink at the wooden bar in front of you, or proceed to the right towards the smoking lounge and its famous outward circular couch. Famous because it is visually attractive, also because sitting with more than two people on that sofa doesn’t make discussions easy. But its peculiar design will help you establish contact with your direct neighbors and more important people will see you.
The area is very quiet despite its close location to U-Eberswalder Strasse. But when the warm days are coming – one day maybe – you can be sure that the tables on the sides of both streets will become the optimal spot for enjoying your drink. What is worth mentioning is their vegetarian carte full of cakes, toasts, soups and more. A place to visit.
