On the whole, Friedrichshain has been particularly resistant to the posh boutiques and ritzy bars popping up all across town. Now, however, the district’s refined boozehounds no longer need pay that taxi fare home.
The small of stature Antlered Bunnt (20 people max. capacity) and undeniably dextrous (a cocktail list that changes with the seasons) – has been soothing and challenging local palates since late 2012. A certain concoction going by the name of ‘Jack the Ripper’ – gin, tomato juice, squeeze of lemon, English mustard, basil, Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper, with a bacon rasher skewered on top of the glass – is developing an almost cult following.
Their pâté, cheese and pickle nibble-boards are also top-drawer and over the weekend (beware incoming red flag paint bombs) they even serve freshly shucked oysters.
