Hi!

I've last minute booked to go to Berlin for 3 nights in between xmas and new years - can anyone recommend any good Tiki bars please? All the ones on Critiki seem to have closed down.

Thank you!

Rum Trader.

Rum Trader.

Rum Trader.


Also for non-tiki cocktail bars, try Stagger Lee, Green Door, and Lebensstern, all walking distance from each other, plus Beckets Kopf. Alll make great drinks.
Green Door might be most fun for tiki people.
They were playing Martin Denny when I walked in, and have vaguely, sorta, kinda, American retro decor.

Ooooooo! Thank you so much for that! I'll be checking all of those out then. And especially Rum Trader.

Howdy,

I'm heading to Berlin soon too and wondering if anyone has any other suggestions for 2013. Rum Trader is on my list.

Thanks!

I didn't have a chance to find any Tiki in Berlin I'm afraid in the short time i was there! The guy at Rum Trader can mix an amazing cocktail, but i would suggest you sit in the booth and not at the bar, because if he takes a dislike to you you'll want to be as far away from him as possible. We were warned by staff in a nearby bar (while waiting for it to open) that it was not for most people -only for 'specialists' and he was a 'character' -and were we sure we wanted to go in there?. A polite way of warning us that he was pretty unpleasant. I'm not sure if his hatred was directed at me specifically, or whether he had a particular dislike of the British. He didn't seem as incensed by the presence of my friend however, instead he kept on insisting she wasn't really British because she is not caucasian. He overcharged me for drinks -significantly more than the couple next to us who had bought the same exact things. Obviously he runs it for his own personal entertainment and does not feel a need to be cordial to his customers if he does not like you. I would never go back.

Although not remotely tiki or cocktail related, i would suggest checking out the lovely dance hall -'Clärchens Ballhaus' for its dance nights (including swing on Wednesdays).
