This Kreuzberg bar's magnificently-bearded owner Atalay Aktas is something of a Berlin legend, ever since his jaw-droppingly good cocktails won him the hotly-contested 'Germany's Best Mixologist' prize in 2013. You can see how Aktas wowed the crowd by visiting his tiny, knock-to-enter cocktail bar, just down the road from the Markthalle in Kreuzberg. Once admitted, you're inside, a small bar divided into three distinct areas, low seating and black wallpaper with golden fleur-de-lys on the walls. It’s all about the detail here, the enormous hunks of ice and antique glassware perfectly paired for the concoctions within. There’s no menu here - waiters simply ask for your flavour preferences and Atalay will create something especially for you.
