    Come to this fancy bar to enjoy some of the most exquisite cocktails in the whole city. Order a Gin Basil Smash (owner Jörg Meyer created it) or any other drink which is not on the menue.

    Top-class drinks. Service at the tables can take a while when it gets busy. If you manage to get a seat at the bar you’re sorted. (Top tip: far right hand seat is the best seat in the house.)

    You can go here to get the same top-end cocktail you already know, or you can ask for something completely crazy. Visiting the place was always good experience and an overall joy

    Elite atmosphere. Customer service is exceptionally excellent. Pleasant music at a low volume which makes it possible to have an exquisite interlocution. Thanks!

    Ask for the Dillinger. Creme de Cacao and special Dill Aquavit. It's amazing. Goes well with Gravad Lax.

    A great lounge atmosphere and fantastic bar keepers! Just go in there and tell them you want a cocktail with X (e.g. Gin). Be sure to be surprised by their creativity and be sure to enjoy the drink!

    My all time favourite cocktail bar. Sign up for the newsletter to get notifications for special events. Try the Gin Basil Smash. Jörg Meyer invented it.

    They are famous for their Basil smash! It is definitely a must. The doorman might give you a hard time. Just say that you have been there before and ask for a seat upstairs. ;)

    If you get there late and you are wondering, whether the three seats outside are the whole thing: enter Narnia through the door on the left.

    Home of the gin basil smash. Get a reservation or come early on the weekend, as it's in many travel guides now...

    One of the best bars in Germany. Friendly personnel, incredibly good drinks. Nice and familiar atmosphere. Try also the tasty cannapées!

    Kind of secret place, you have to ring to get in. All the cocktails were very nice ! ( maybe a little bit expansive )

    Joerg Meyer’s ‘cradle of the Basil Smash’ had been a stalwart of the list for seven straight years. Sadly it missed out on making an eighth.

    Very impressed with the creativity and knowledge of the bar staff. A very quiet, exclusive feel to this place. Bit too quiet for me.

    Maybe the best cocktail bar, gets crowded, friendly but slow staff, very hip, but rather young crowd for a hip cocktail bar.

    I suppose every city needs at least one pretentious bar and this is Hamburg's. The service and the drinks are good but.. Nah, it's too chichi..

    Try something else than the Gin Basil Smash. It's pretty simple, sour with basil..

    Had something expensive, red and fluffy then took a hazardous trip to the toilets; steep stairs + low light + very drunk patrons = bad mix, service good in comparison to normal Hamburg service.
