Dancing on the volcano near Konstanzer Straße subway station? For a long time, a desolate no-man's land in culinary terms, apart from the Hamann chocolate factory. Just a few houses away, however, glaring golden lamps shine from the canopy, pointing the way to a wicked darkness. With grandiose drinks.

We are not so far from the legendary and glamorous Kurfürstendamm, the epitome of the wild 1920s, when Berlin became the destination of Europe's bohemians. Marlene Dietrich charmed in "Der Blaue Engel", poets and painters met in the Romanisches Café and Josephine Baker proved the sex appeal of the banana skirt at Nelson's Revuetheater.

A century later, the Provocateur Hotel with its bar picks up where that era left off and adds a pinch of Paris à la Edith Piaf and Oscar Wilde. But without seeming too nostalgic. The cocktails are contemporary and delicious.

The team works out a thematic concept for each bar menu, which serves as a common thread that animates and accompanies the guests in an atmospheric way. Most recently, the motto was "Liquids, Leisure, L'Amour", but today we're drinking our way through the brand-new "Cocktail Exhibition". How about a devilish "Lucifer"? White tequila meets grapefruit, white cocoa, lime water, and goat cheese. Topped off with a pinch of cherry-smoked salt.

The other cocktail exhibits also surprise with a brushstroke of unusual ingredients framed by appealing, aromatic combinations. 

The atmosphere also adds a seductively lascivious touch, allowing guests to forget the dreary gray of the outside world in an atmospheric setting. The opulent red seating niches, the discreet golden light and the black counter block, subtly illuminated from below, around which nearly two dozen bar stools cluster. They provide a view of the bartenders' deft touches and attentive service. In addition, the spirits selection, which makes any drink and cocktail request possible even beyond the creative bar menu.

In the neighboring room, the Golden Phoenix restaurant complements the culinary offerings at the Provocateur Hotel. Responsibility for the kitchen is borne by well-known culinary entrepreneur The Duc Ngo, whose Asia-influenced concepts (such as 893 Ryōtei, Funky Fish, Madame Ngo, Cantina) always cause a sensation. At Golden Phoenix, the focus lies on Chinese cuisine, discreetly laced with French impulses. The small dishes, like dim sum, also make excellent little cocktail-accompanying bar bites.

The bar at Provocateur means charming service, outstanding cocktails and a special - discreetly wicked - atmosphere with the delicate golden veil of the wild 20s of Berlin and Paris. Musically summarized from the gramophone would now sound: "First drink with me a little alcohol" and then "La vie en rose". Chin chin!
