Hackbarth: Another cozy east-side Kneipen

There's a great neighborhood feel to this bar just a short stroll from Oranienburgerstrasse. It's authentic, off-the-beaten path, and 100% Berlin.

Address: Auguststrasse 49a

Directions: Mitte

Meilenstein: Cheerful local bar (kneipen) on Oranienburgerstr.

Pleasant unpretensious cafe/bar at the more interesting end of Oranienburgerstrasse. It was a good place to begin an evening's adventures, with local brews on tap. Good views of the bustling street outside.

Address: 7 Oranienburgerstrasse

Directions: at the Hackescher Markt end of Oranienburgerstrasse, not far from its intersection with Grosse Hamburgerstr.

CSA Bar: Smooth cocktails on Karl-Marx Allee

This is one of the most beautiful martini bars I've ever been in. Located in a former sales office for the Czech State Airline (hence the name), the CSA Bar has a sleek minimalist decor, lighting that flatters, an attentive staff, and broad plate glass windows that look out at traffic whizzing by on what was intended to be East Germany's grandest boulevard. I have to confess this: I experienced a "frisson" of delight sipping my Cosmopolitan and shamelessly engaging in decadent homosexual flirtation while sitting comfortably ensconced on "Karl-Marx Allée". History does have its pleasurable ironies.

Address: Karl Marx Allee 96 (south side of the road)

Directions: Friedrichshain -- U-Bahn Weberwiese

various: Friedrichshain Nightspots

Friedrichshain is a great place to bar-hop. But don't take my word for it. The Sunday NY Times travel section has just published a piece about Friedrichshain: "The Club Scene, on the Edge." Too bad it wasn't published before my visit!

"Mix Williamsburg with the Lower East Side, add a Teutonic accent and you've got the increasingly hip Berlin neighborhood Friedrichshain. It is home to both students and slackers, as a cracking night life has sprung up in the shadow of the Ostbahnhof, the main train station in the former East Berlin."

If it's in the "New York Times," it must be true!

Among the places recommended by the reviewer:
Habermayer, 6 Gärtnerstr.;
Astro-Bar, 40 Simon-Dach Str.;
and Lee Harvey Oswald Bar, 68 Grünberger Str.

I didn't visit any of the featured places myself on my November 2004 trip; maybe next time.
