One of the newest rooftop hotspots in Berlin, the Monkey Bar is attached to the 25hours Hotel and next to Bikini (the city’s newest shopping experience). Rum is the focus of their cocktail menu—most of their signature concoctions are best described as new-wave tiki—although they also have a number of intriguing variations on the classic gin and tonic. But the real reason to visit the Monkey bar is the roof terrace, which offers unparalleled views of Breitscheidplatz—home of the iconic, half-destroyed Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtnis Church—to the south, and the treetops of the Tiergarten to the north. One of the best places in Berlin to watch the sun go down on a summer evening.
