The bar is a Berlin nightlife institution. Nowhere else are such exciting drinks mixed with such attention to detail. The team is always on the lookout for seasonal ingredients such as fig leaves or asparagus, which are also sourced regionally. Using a rotary evaporator, for example, ingredients are extracted that guarantee drinks of exceptional quality. A must!
