Das Gift is one of my go-to neighborhood bars. The old-school Eckkneipe (German corner bar) meets Glasgow decor, the friendly and welcoming staff, and the excellent food and drink make Gift a worthwhile watering hole for anyone crashing their way through Neukölln.
I think Das Gift is so great because there is always something going on: Quiz nights in English on Mondays, DJs and drink specials throughout the week, free jukebox night on Thursdays on the BEST JUKEBOX IN BERLIN, and mayhem at the weekends.
The menu sports a superb selection of Scottish whiskies, local and British craft beers and delicious cocktails. Food is served daily from 18 to 22. Definitely try the mac n’ cheese (get it with jalapeños and black pudding!), the mackerel pate, and the Naggis Hachos (nachos with haggis, of course). And if a weekend out in Berlin hasn’t completely wrecked you (good luck), chase that hangover away at their Scottish brunch served from 12 on Saturdays and Sundays, washed down with one of their epic Bloody Marys.
