This gorgeous 50s-style place oozes attention to detail with vintage elements such as the sweeping bannisters, dark leather, metal light fittings and wooden features that would give any carpenter a thrill.
This emphasis on quality is reflected in the menu, with its unique, seasonal, creative and, above all, delicious drinks. My choice, the Nikkey Sour, plays with elements from Europe and the Far East. Pisco infused with pear and rosemary, sake, fresh grapefruit, lemon and Peychaud’s bitters combine to produce an exhilarating energy boost.
You’ll receive a friendly welcome even if you don’t want a cocktail! There are always at least three different beers on tap, a good selection of bottled beers and the good old “Herrengedeck” (a Kölsch beer followed by a corn schnapps). Plus, from Thursday to Saturday, there’s a DJ playing funk and hip hop.
