Le Tire Bouchon - The Bar at Schlosshotel Grunewald
Those who prefer a quiet night out, far away from the hustle and bustle of Berlin's night life will love the Tire Bouchon at Schlosshotel Grunewald. Big leather sofas, a cozy fireplace and the historic ambience of the former property of the emperor Wilhelm II.'s lawyer set this bar apart from anything else in Berlin.
The waiting staff is laid back yet very courteous, the drinks are solid and the snacks on the bar menu delicious. The latter are prepared in the hotel restaurant's highly praised kitchen and offer classics like the club sandwich and hamburgers as well as delicate risottos and exotic salad variations.
I could sit here for hours, wooed time and again by the ancient interior that seems so natural in this very environment and inspires the lushest speculations about the former owners' lives.
