The bar culture in Berlin is something to be taken very seriously, as the city offers a wide variety of hip places to hang out. Here are some of the coolest bars that Berlin has to offer

The Green Door

Behind an actual green door lies The Green Door, a very popular cocktail bar that attracts a lot of tourists and deep-pocketed regulars who come to experience the classy lounge environment while sipping on one of their delicious cocktails from their impressive beverage menu. Their specialty? The Green Door cocktail that brings you a balanced mix of excellent champagne, lemon, sugar and a touch of mint. It’s a go-to bar you just can’t miss.

Das Hotel Bar

If you are looking for something a little more casual and relaxed, Berlin’s famous Das Hotel Bar is the place to go. It is located in the heart of Kreuzberg and is known to be one of the best places to visit in that area. With a variety of local drinks, live music, and shabby decor, you don’t have to worry about being too dressed up or worrying about your credit card being drained. Simply grab a chair, sit down with your friends and try their famous twist on the classic gin and tonic. But don’t let the casual look fool you as this place can get pretty packed during the weekends, so make sure you get there early if you want to grab yourself a table.

Klunkerkranich

Looking for a beautiful view with that beer? Located on top of a high building, the Klunkerkranich is the absolute best and top of the line rooftop bar in Berlin. Known to attract the youngsters of the city, this bar surely does the trick on a hot summer day or a spring night as you watch the sunset with a delicious drink in your hand. And unlike other places, this bar is far from pretentious. Maintaining a strong cultural vibe around an urban gardening scene, this bar is worth the three euro entrance fee that goes towards keeping the place green and supporting the live music that plays there every day. If you’re looking for a beautiful and relaxing place to grab a drink, Klunkerkranich is the place.

There is truly an endless list of spectacular bars in Berlin, all unique and interesting in their own way. From the refreshing open-mindedness of the Silver Future bar to the elegant and classic ORA bar, there really is a bar for every taste and budget. Sitting in a local bar is also a great way to bond with the community and to experience the culture of Germany, as you meet individuals who share their stories in places that resemble pieces of German history.

You don’t have to book a table at a michelin star restaurant if you want top-notch food, because you can now buy gourmet food on the street if you are craving for something special. Food trucks have definitely gotten fancier over the years, but there’s still a neat variety of nostalgic trucks that serve just good but simple dishes. The best thing about traveling food trucks is that if you hear about a certain theme or concept that is being served in one side of the country, there’s a good chance you’ll get to taste it in your area because these babies go on food-tours as well! We’ve selected the coolest food trucks that can be found in the U.S in terms of design, taste and just overall awesomeness.

Thoroughfare Food Truck

This beautiful food truck opened it’s windows back in 2013 and has been serving the residents of Greenville, South Carolina ever since then. Neil and Jessica who also happen to be a married couple own this lovely truck and they serve a good combination of refined ut also familiar flavors. For example, you can get rosemary chicken salad topped with fine goat cheese. They also specialize in private events.

Border Grill

Ok, so this one has got to be all about good food, after all Border Grill was founded by two former Top Chef Masters contestants, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger. These two took their upscale Mexican food to the streets with their lovely Border Grill Truck. They just made a few tweaks to make their original menu fit the -on-the-go crowd. You can find six different tcos, five options for quesadillas and other great side dishes.

Cupcake Carnivale

On a sweeter note, Cupcake Carnivale is every dessert lover’s dream come true. From Strawberry Oreo Cookies & Cream to Chocolate Pumpkin Patch and That’s S’more, one can find the sweetest and most creative cupcakes they’ve ever seen. It’s truly a cupcake festival in one cute truck.

Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck

This Hawaiian truck is one historical institute. The family business opened its gates and later its windows in 1953 when there were just a couple of shrimp recipes. What started as occasional stops alongside the North Shore soon turned into a sensation all over the country. Just by the number of signatures that are found all over the truck you can sense that this place is a must-visit.

Pepe

Washington D.C. wouldn’t seem like obvious choice or location for a food truck, but that’s part of the charm. This is a fusion-free food truck, which is kind of refreshing in a way. The menu constantly changes and some of the dishes you can find there are  grilled cheese with manchego, seared beef tenderloin and for dessert – hazelnut ice cream flauta. Yummy!
