(1) Zoulou Bar
The walls are a little gilded from all the smoke, but Zoulou's regulars don't seem to mind. "They don't even want us to renovate anything," says Alam Böhm. Perhaps they fear for the bar's cozy charm, which is one of its main attractions and worth the trip beyond the rims of Neukölln and Kreuzberg to "unhip" Schöneberg. Starting at 1 am, the crowd working in the surrounding cafés and restaurants will stop by for after-work drinks.
Hauptstraße 4, Berlin-Schöneberg, www.zouloubar.de, Tel. +49 30 70 09 47 37, Sun-Thu 8pm-5am, Fri-Sat 8pm-6am
There ain't no menu, but you won't need one anyway, because Robert Bettendorf will just mix whatever you need to start off your night or ring in the morning hours. Heisenberg is a no-frills, no pretentions location - this goes for the drinks and the general atmosphere. Drinks are served until the very last boozer falls off his chair.
Schillerpromenade 11, Berlin-Neukölln, open daily from 12pm
(3) Booze Bar
Sure, you can get a cheap happy hour cocktail on every corner of Simon-Dach-Straße, but most will include a free monstrous headache the next day. The Booze bar is a welcome alternative, offering high quality cocktails for those looking to get ready for a night of clubbing around Friedrichshain or just boozing with style.
Boxhagener Straße 105, Berlin-Friedrichshain, www.booze-bar.de, Tel. +49 30 95 59 11 45, Sun 7pm-2am, Tue-Thu 7pm-3am, Fri+Sat 7pm-open end
