    One of my favorite bar in Berlin. Roof bar , terrace is so nice. It will be coolest roof bar in summer. Only bad thing is so busy and touristic on Friday&Sat night, go during the week.

    Pretty expensive, but totally worth of at least one cocktail (🍸=12,5€) The quality is definitely on top. Beautiful place with a great view. The best time for visiting is when the sun comes down.

    Regardless the reviews about cocktails, they are good, take those with rum. Crowd is friendly and service is fast for a jam like this, well done. The place is above 25h hotel

    One of the best sunsets you can get in Berlin. Right over the monkeys cage in the zoo: great style, wonderful city views, not really great cocktails.

    Situated on the rooftop it has stunning views of the city centre. Awesome selection of drinks, but if you are heading their during peak times (Friday & Saturday night) arrive early to get a good spot!

    Very cool bar with good views over the Berlin Zoo. Food/drinks good value. Service varies depending on day, time, & busyness of the bar. I had nicer time/service on weeknights at sunset. Weekends no!

    One of my favorite places in Berlin. The view is great. Snacks are tasty, wines by the glass decent, same with le cremant or champagne. Not so good, the cocktails but might be just personal taste.

    Very nice bar with an amazing view over Berlin! Drinks are pricy, but delicious! Definitely loved the atmosphere in there. Was a bit difficult to find a spot to sit as it was so crowded.

    Full, full, very full! Separate entrance for the hotel guests and bar visitors. Yesterday Berlin handball team was celebrating their victory here. Great ambiance. Be happy if you made it inside

    Nicest view. Crowd is weird sometimes... old, touchy and arrogant men - not my cup of tea. But when I am out with friends this is one of our go to spots. Also; most Cocktails are AMAZING! 👌🏻

    Tasty and well presented cocktails, a big range of bespoke and standard options. Sitting on the balcony in the sun is perfect. Check out the views from the loos.

    Very nice place with an astonishing view. Cocktails are also very good. Although, be prepared that on Saturday crowded night you'll have to wait hours for your drink🙂🙃

    Great location, perfect view, hard to get a comfortable corner as it's extremely crowded. Drinks take some time but it's mostly worth it.

    Go here to have a drink - or lunch - with a view over the Zoo - and the rest of Berlin. It's a great place, but perhaps there are a bit too many tourists - it's in a hotel after all.

    The view is amazing, the drinks pretty decent and they have a DJ every now and then, but it's too crowded in the evening and slightly overpriced. If you can check out in the afternoon

    The crowd is a bit douchey but the service is great, views are amazing and drinks made with a lot of love and attention. Can get busy, but hotel guests get priority.

    No view at night, seating difficult for groups (but great for dates), long & unnecessary waiting time, payment immediately after every order, good food and drinks, nice interior.

    They do not take reservations so you’d have to queue for a while. Is it worth it? Yes if you’re there for a cocktail and a great view; not really if you want to meet ppl, the crowd is way too young

    Bit too crowded for my taste (serious, waiting 30minuts in line?). However, place looks good, location is very nice and the view is great! Great start of your Berlin-evening!
