Named after the 19th century American naturalist John Muir, who as an outdoorsman most likely understood the health benefits of a good nip of whiskey, this bar aims to bring a bit of a Brooklyn flavor to SO36 with its mounted trophy heads and red-brick walls. There’s wooden decking on the street for observing the main drag action of Skalitzer Strasse, but inside it’s cosy and smoke-free. They run a fully-stocked bar, with a special craft beer night on Mondays and an experimental cocktail menu developed monthly with whimsical names like Wutang Killer Beets (tequila, beetroot and pomegranate) or Black Beer’d (cognac, black beer, lime, orange and bitters). The owners are well connected in the electronic music scene and there’s occasionally big-name DJs playing alternative sets for the regulars.
