With its finger on the pulse of underground music, Berlin has become a party mecca in Europe. However with this round up of the city’s best rooftop bars you don’t need to bring your dancing shoes, just make sure you’re ready for some breathtaking views and cocktails.
The Curtain Club at The Ritz-Carlton
Hidden behind luxurious drapes sits The Curtain Club. The interior feels unlike anything else you’ll find in Berlin, with whisky colored wingback chairs and huge sprawling Arabic rugs, The Curtain Club has the feeling of a traditional British members club. Live piano music plays on most evenings, with the drinks covering everything from citrusy and light to dark and rich (we’d recommend the Blood And Sand, a mix of 10-year-old Ardberg and cherry liquor).
PURO Sky Lounge
Situated on the 20th floor of the Europacenter, the PURO lounge is popular with the likes of Beyonce and Lady Gaga. The interior is sleek and minimalist with the bar lit softly with candles adorning the tables. The bar crosses over three floors with each floor taking on a distinctly different musical genre. Drinks-wise expect all the classic cocktails you come to expect from a good bar alongside some of Germany’s finest beers and wines.
Hotel de Rome, Berlin
The name may be confusing but don’t let it fool you. When you step out of the elevator onto the hotel’s rooftop bar you will feel like you’ve been whisked away to a rustic Italian rooftop, but if you look either side of you, you will see the Berlin Cathedral and the world famous TV tower. Expect warming cocktails such as the Ginger de Rome during the winter and more classic refreshing tipples during the summer.
House of the Weekend
Ok, House of the Weekend is more of a club than a bar, but it’s definitely one of the city’s hottest spots for luxurious cocktails matched with some of the city’s finest music. Split across two floors you will find a more club-vibe downstairs while the rooftop embodies a classic Berlin cocktail bar with modern drinks on offer alongside a more relaxed vibe.
