Schiffbauerdamm area: "Riverside drinking" Berlin Nightlife Tip by toonsarah
Berlin Nightlife: 289 reviews and 289 photos
If your idea of an evening out, like ours, is a few drinks and a pleasant meal, and maybe a stroll in between, you could do worse than head to the Schiffbauerdamm near Friedrichstraße station. The riverside setting is nice on a warm evening (though the Spree here is not especially picturesque) and there’s a good choice of bars and restaurants to suit a variety of purses.
And we sampled a few of them! We had pre-dinner drinks on the riverside terrace of the Van Gogh bar, with a great Cosmopolitan for me and a beer for Chris, dinner at the Berliner Republik (see my restaurant tip) and, after a little walk, a post-dinner drink (OK, two!) at the Ständige Vertretung, a very lively pub run by exiles from Cologne, serving one of Chris’s favourite beers, Kölsch, where I had a great raspberry Schnapps (Himbeere).
Dress Code: A couple of the restaurants here are quite smart and you'll feel more comfortable dressed accordingly, but for the most part any regular atire will be fine
Directions: From Friedrichstraße station (numerous lines) take the exit marked Schiffbauerdamm across the bridge and turn right along the river
