If loud rock bars and good beer is your thing, then this is the place. Good music and a friendly vibe and beer for €3 for 0.5L. Some of the staff can be a bit gruff on occasion, but this is Berlin and the famous...More

They play rock music and metal. I had a great time here. The bathroom is kind of interesting to say the least. I would definitely check this one out. The place did get a little smoky.
