I stayed in a hostel for one night in Friedrichshain with a friend, and we wanted to drink a beer in the evening in the neighbourhood. Even though there are lots of pubs in Friedrichshain, we found most of them too punk, so we decided to look up the highest rated pub on Trip Advisor, and we did not get disappointed.

For a pub which presents itself as a friendly great place,. It's not. Maybe we are spoiled being Dutch and our quality of beer are high. In this place the beer is warm, having only 1 lager on tap:( sure isn't a pub

Hi Lars,
we have four different beers on tap and different bottled beers, all served cool. If you are searching for extra cold heineken, you are right, this isn't your place...

On our last trip to Berlin we had a great time in this wonderful pub so when we were back in Berlin for the fantastic BERLIN BEER FESTIVAL ( BIERMIELE ) we were alway's going to revisit this wonderful pub.
We walked in and the pub was bouncing ,not surprising really as the atmosphere in here is alway's very good.
We ordered a guinness which was served in iced cold condition and poured perfectly ,even allowing time for that all important settle,very important for guinness.
We chilled out sitting outside as it was a roasting hot evening .
This is a lovely pub with lovely comfortable seating and nice decor,it really is a superb cosy pub.
Our first guinness each was gone in no time ,it was that tasty and a quick refill was the order of the day.
Again the guinness was fabulous and was just so nice enjoying a great guinness sitting outside a fabulous lively Irish pub.
This is a super easy pub to find ,jump the U5 down to stop FRANKFURTER TOR and walk down WARSCHAUER STRAßE and cut onto BOXHAGONER STRAßE were you will find this great pub located in the FRIEDRICHSHAIN DISTRICT.
Opening hour's are;
Monday to Thursday,6pm till 1am.
Friday & Saturday,6pm till 2am.
Sunday,closed.
Great guinness,superb staff & service and well worth a visit.

I went to Maclaren yesterday and had a great time. I've got some Guinness and my gf some berliner pilsners... At the end of the night we ordered some burgers and they were very good. It's not like outstanding medium rare meat but is. A good burger for the Berlin standard. The best part was the service, for one of the first time here in Germany we have been well served. There was only one guy taking care of all the service but it was very good and he was a good English speaker. Grats for you bald bearded guy!!

It's a replica of the favourite pub of the characters of the TV show How I Met Your Mother. Many objects of memorabilia are there: the blue horn, the Intervention sign, the Robin Sparkles jacket, the yellow umbrella, etc. Some drinks names are inspired by episodes or characters. And you can drink a cold pint of Guinness. Nice music, but mind one thing: the kitchen closes at 11PM.
