Bar Tausend’s increasing international reputation as a hot Berlin nightspot has not made it any easier to find. Its well-concealed entrance—an unmarked door by the train tracks down by the river, literally—tends to dissuade all but the most dedicated searchers. But despite its hidden location, the bar never suffers from a lack of patrons. If you find the door and make it past the doorman, you will discover a tastefully modern lounge, with mirrored vaulted ceilings, loud music (DJs are the norm, but there are occasional live acts) and a not-too-young, not-too-old crowd drawn from all over Europe. The cocktails, while not up to the standard of a dedicated cocktail bar, are definitely a cut above the uninspired long drinks offered by many of Berlin’s trendier night spots.
