Throughout the past few years, Prenzlauerberg has gained a reputation for being more family oriented than an area with good vibrant nightlife. But there are still a few places up there that I frequent when I’m in the mood to have a late night out…
Every time I walk into Soupanova I feel the urge to giggle. It might be the clashing colors – yellow, orange, green, red, pink, lilac or the Indonesian light ornaments and all the mirrors around that reflect them, the flower-stamped chairs or maybe just the bartenders who always seem to welcome people with a big smile and a little giggle to go with it. I guess I like it because all the colors and flower ornaments around suddenly get me in a good mood…like being invited into someone’s living room somewhere in a warm part of the world.
The place consists of three rooms: Chill room, bar room, and live music / DJs / reading room with a nice flowery stage. Anything can happen in the third one. And anything fun will happen if you’re there on the right day, like Ping Pong and Karaoke.
They serve freestyle food, a mix between Indonesian, Thai and Indian, like dumplings and the famous ‘Intersoup’ with coconut milk. They have cocktails, spirits and fresh juice. The only down side is that they only have two kinds of beer. But the vibe there is always nice, and whenever weather permits it, they have sofas outside.
