Where to Drink in Berlin

The German capital offers far more than beer halls.

The Grand

Cushy leather couches, vintage furnishings, and plush Oriental carpets make this hip Mitte spot feel like a turn-of-the-century cigar lounge. The drinks menu features updates on American classics, including the Mississippi Steamboat—a combination of bourbon, brandy and orange bitters. The connecting restaurant is a city favorite for steak, thanks to the high temperatures of its Southbend grill, which creates a perfect crust. The attached nightclub hosts local and international DJs, making The Grand perfect for early and late-night expeditions. Hirtenstrasse 4; 49-30-27/8909-9510; the-grand-berlin.com.
