Around the Kottbusser Tor and Görlitzer Train Station are so many bars that you could spend weeks moving from one to another without getting bored. If you only have one night in Kreuzberg, then why not give the LomoTour of Kreuzberg a whirl!
The ‘Bier Kombinat Kreuzberg‘ is neither hip nor cool nor sexy; it’s a Berlin bar. Here you can enjoy a locally brewed BKK-Forte and hear what’s new from the people on neighbouring tables. Don’t rule out spontaneous concerts from the regulars.
Location: Manteuffelstrasse 53, 10999 Berlin-Kreuzberg
2. Ping Pong Bar
Now housed inside the former “Balkan Sport Klause“, is the Ping Pong Bar. Here is proof that for a great evening, you don’t need anything more than just a refrigerator full of drinks, a good DJ and a Ping Pong table. Ping Pong, Ping Pong – everybody has to get involved!
Location: Glogauerstrasse 21, 10999 Berlin-Kreuzberg
Ping Pong Party every Tuesday & Friday, closed during winter.
3. Möbel Olfe
From now on it’s going to get tight! Möbel Olfe is an institution from Kreuzberg and is usually fit to burst. A lot of people from the homosexual scene like to meet here and mix thoroughly with a colorful crowd from young to old. It’s very loud and smells of sweat, beer and cigarettes.
Location: Reichenberger Str. 177, 10999 Berlin-Kreuzberg
Now that you’re completely sure that you’ll have to wash your clothes tomorrow, you’re probably ready for Trinkteufel. Here as well, there are a lot of men in tight clothing, but the Harley Davidson riders and the Punks that you’ll find sitting at the bar will chat you up in a different way to those in Möbel Olfe.
Location: Naunynstr. 60, 10997 Berlin-Kreuzberg
5. Paloma Bar
Next to the entrance to Kaisers Supermarket, you go up to the top of the stairs and through the inconspicuous door on the left. Welcome to Paloma. This place is pretty small too, but there’s a fantastic view of the Kotbusser Tor. Recommendation: order 3 Vodkas with Ahoibrause for just €5 and then get them down!
Location: Skalitzer Straße 135, 10999 Berlin-Kreuzberg
Anyone who’s claustrophobic has probably reached the end of the road. For everyone else, it’s time to climb up the highest level of club culture and into a tiny little room. Just imagine 200 people in your living room, all swinging their hips to droning electro music. Sounds like a pretty good party – it usually is.
