BAR TIP: Macke Prinz in Mitte

MACKE PRINZ – Quietly cool Mitte bar

This quaint and down to earth little bar looking onto Zionskirchplatz in central Berlin is steeped in history. Here is a place where beer has been brewed and enjoyed for over 100 years in Berlin! Still channelling some of that old Berlin flair from eras past, Macke Prinz makes for an ideal location to pass by wintry nights, as well as to soak up a balmy summer’s evening while striking up new friendships.

Such a well-kept secret of a gem is Macke Prinz that there is usually only one person behind the bar. Inside, the interior is made up of dark woods, vintage velvet couches and leather bound armchairs. And so cosy are the bar’s environs that only about 30 people could fit inside, meaning that however in demand, the atmosphere remains cool, calm and easy. A top Berlin insider tip to check out if you would like to get to know some locals and enjoy some Augustiner Bier on tap, good wines, spirits and cocktails at very reasonable prices.

Macke Prinz also features one artist’s work each month so keep your eye peeled for upcoming meet-and-greets with talented creatives.
