Mon­key­ing Around

Where Berlin - - NIGHTLIFE -

When the newly ren­o­vated Bikini Berlin com­plex opened in early 2014, the city’s west­ern dis­trict of Char­lot­ten­burg not only gained a new des­ti­na­tion for shop­ping, but one for nightlife as well. Up on the pent­house level of the 25hours Ho­tel Bikini Berlin is Mon­key Bar, a cock­tail spot that was des­tined for pop­u­lar­ity thanks to its hip vibe and in­cred­i­ble view over Tier­garten park – in­clud­ing, as the bar’s name cheek­ily ref­er­ences, a prime peek down into the zoo’s mon­key en­clo­sure. Huge floor-to- ceil­ing win­dows and casual, pil­low-strewn lounge seat­ing, reg­u­lar DJ ap­pear­ances, and a ter­race for fresh air are just a few of the draws, as well as cock­tail spe­cial­ties like a spicy basil Gin & Tonic or a cool and re­fresh­ing Mon­key’s Slushy with gin, el­der­flower liqueur, and grape­fruit. As it’s a pop­u­lar spot on most evenings, get there early to snag a cov­eted spot by the win­dows. Bu­dapester Str. 40. T: 030.120221210. www. 25hours-ho­
