At Winterfeldtplatz in Schöneberg, the inconspicuous green door shines as the entrance to a true nucleus of Berlin bar culture. Largely unnoticed, the bar recently reached the proud age of 25 years. Unfortunately, the pandemic thwarted an appropriate anniversary celebration for this institution, which first unlocked its green door in 1995.

Since then, the Green Door Bar, with its psychedelic décor, curious lamps, and long counter, has left its mark on generations of Berlin's barflies and bartenders. And to this day, patrons puzzle over whether the name is a musical homage to Eddie Condon, Jim Lowe, or Shakin' Stevens, or whether it derives from a strange porn film from 1972. Bar founder and scriptwriter Fritz Müller-Scherz, who died much too early, may have had all these subtle references in mind at the time.

The motto "The power of positive drinking" along the bar and the curved walls is nowadays the responsibility of the friendly bar manager Maria Gorbatschova. Meticulousness and team spirit are the hallmarks of a trained product designer. And so the seasonally changing menu always features carefully coordinated drink creations that the bar team develops together.

Creative and unusual ingredients and homemade components surprise every time. For example, "The Harvest" proves to be the ideal winter companion made from Irish whiskey, verjus, amaro, vermouth, and rowanberry eau de vie.

The bar manager's heart beats for delicate ingredients, such as sake. The "Royal Cannonball", for example, whose fruity freshness brightens up the winter evening wonderfully, is recommended. The highball contains gin, lemon, tangerine spirit and is infused with crémant. Then, a scoop of sorbet rounds off the experience for an extra euro.

Of course, the team of the Green Door Bar also masters the classics around Martini, Mai Tai, and Daiquiri and prepares for regulars of the first hour also their favorites of the 90s, like Hurricane or Flying Kangaroo.

Yes, at the Green Door, memory meets drink innovation. A wonderful Berlin bar classic that has never stopped being relevant.
