Cock­tail Per­fec­tion

Where Berlin - - NIGHTLIFE -

Ask one of Red­wood’s many reg­u­lars what keeps them com­ing back and you’ll get a va­ri­ety of an­swers. Some will say it’s be­cause the Mitte bar is the only place in Ber­lin where they can get Cal­i­for­nian beers An­chor Steam and Sierra Ne­vada. Oth­ers will laud the staff’s cus­tomer ser­vice and mas­tery of mixol­ogy. You’ll even get a few who sim­ply en­joy the smoke-free at­mos­phere — a rar­ity in the Ber­lin bar scene. But all will agree on one fact: The mixed drinks are pure per­fec­tion. In ad­di­tion to the cock­tail clas­sics, the regularly chang­ing drink menu of­fers such cre­ative con­coc­tions as the Märkisch Julep (bour­bon, honey, and fresh lo­cal fruit) and the June Bug (a re­fresh­ing chilled mix­ture of gin, lime, green char­treuse, plums, and berries). Choose from se­lec­tions on the in­ge­niously de­signed menu — a ma­trix of liquors and palate pref­er­ences that’s bound to be im­i­tated in bars both in Ber­lin and abroad — or sim­ply ask the staff to pick a new poi­son for you.
