Restaurant / Wine Bar
Party Earth Review In a city that offers everything, the hole-in-the-wall restaurant Weinerei Frarosa still manages to be one of a kind. For a mere €1 cover charge, patrons can drink and eat as much as they want, then decide for themselves how much the meal was worth and leave their contribution in a bowl by the door on their way out.

Lounge / Wine Bar
Party Earth Review A must for any wine lover, Wein-Salon is an intimate, upscale, slightly alternative lounge in a residential area of Friedrichshain.

Although Germany is not traditionally known as a world-class wine making country, there are still acres and acres of vineyards producing quality wines and thus producing wine fans and thus creating demand for wine bars in all the major cities.
There are a good amount of wine bars in Berlin, and rest assured they also carry the finest Italian, Spanish, and French varietals. The Germans are famous for one type of wine, however, and anyone who has taken down a bottle of Riesling can attest to the taste and potency.
One of the best Berlin wine bars is an intimate watering hole in Friedrichshain called Wein-Salon. Here, an alternative crowd lounges on mismatched furniture, plays pool, and indulges in inexpensive, yet high quality vino.
Another great wine bar in Berlin is Weinerei Frarosa in Mitte. This egalitarian haunt charges customers €1 to enter and then all the food and booze is on the house (larger donations won’t be turned away). But a distinctively bohemian vibe prevails where all are equal in their enjoyment of finely aged grapes.
Regardless of where you choose to kick back and enjoy a bottle or two of wine, there are plenty of options in Berlin ranging from big and small to expensive and cheap. So grab a date or meet a friend at a Berlin wine bar near you.
