This narrow neighborhood kneipe on Schöneberg’s pleasant Akazienstraße is neither a dive bar nor a punk bar, but rather a time machine offering a glimpse of what it was like to drink in Berlin 40 years ago. Situated beneath a vintage neon sign, the clean, well-kept—and surprisingly smoke-free—bar caters mostly to locals in search of a quiet beer or a low-volume chat. But unlike some of Berlin’s unreconstructed local bars—where you might not want to venture if you’re under 50, don’t speak German or don’t support Berlin’s soccer team Hertha BSC—Felsenkeller is friendly and inviting, an ideal spot to unwind after work, or to stop on your way to dinner at one of the neighbourhood’s many restaurants.

What to drink
Beer the traditional way: in small glass with a paper ring around the stem.
Rumor has it that Jeffery Eungenides wrote Middlesex here. Ask a bartender to point out the very table, and see if the same spot inspires your own prose.
