Of all the bars that opened in Berlin in 2014, this one was perhaps the most anticipated, and certainly the most hyped. At the top of the new 25hours Hotel that opened alongside the Bikini Berlin concept mall, Monkey Bar offers some of the best drinks and views in the city.
In good weather, you’ll want to sip one of the many specialty cocktails on the wraparound terrace offering spectacular views of the city. In winter, the floor-to-ceiling, park-side windows give you a glimpse of the bar’s namesake: the monkeys’ habitats at the adjacent zoo, several floors below. Best of all, the bar offers a convenient bar menu from NENI, the restaurant it shares the floor with, so you can enjoy a trio of flavored hummus with warm, fluffy pita, or some of the best salty, sweet potato fries around.
