This is a real quirky, eclectic small bar in Mitte. Real atmosphere, great music and very, very busy. If is not a slick, beautifully furnished venue, but that adds to its character. If you love yourself and want to go somewhere pretentious where people don't go unless they are wearing designer clothes then this isn't for you. If you are... More

My brother, who lives local has always had an affinity with 'moody and edgy' places... While quite atmospheric, it reminded me of somewhere I would have gone when I was a student 25 years ago... So less edgy and more like some place that hadn't really tried to adapt or evolve... Pleasant evening, nice drink, some quirky characters in the... More

Cost: about €4 a beer Atmosphere: historic Service: terrible (what a disappointment) It gets zero for service. If it's on your way, visit it.

Quite a nice/interesting looking place, went in for a drink and went up to the bar. The male waiter who was clearly trying to channel some edgy 'Tom Odell' look took my order, looked at me blankly, and just walked off. Arrogance personified. The female waitress then had some serious attitude when I re-ordered with her instead. I was a... More

The place attracted me with its very interesting dark atmosphere, so I came in and asked from a barman if I could have a cappuchino. Without even looking at me he mumbled "yeah" and continued to stare at his phone. While I was searching for coins in my purse to pay some other guy came in and started to chat... More

The cinema cafe is a cool bar / coffee shop in the heart of Mitte, an alternative neighborhood in Berlin, close to where it used to be Tachelles. The bar follows the area philosophy… very open minded. You sit wherever you can, maybe in the same table as some strangers, walls are decorated with street art... People are quite friendly.... More

This cafe is actually quite cool in a way, a little dark but cozy. But........ the lady who waitressed there was really grumpy and a bit rood as if they don't need any customers. But maybe that's what they want to stand for?

We were a group of 6 ladies who went in for a quiet drink this past Saturday night, and sat inside the bar. After about an hour, we took a mobile phone out to take a group selfie. The barman started shouting "Hey!" from the other side of the bar. When we didn't respond he ran over, leant over us,... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
