Party Earth Yuma Bar Review

The Scene

Yuma Bar in Neukölln is a cozy Berlin spot with great Belgian beer & fun events like origami & pantomime theater. Snag some Berlin culture with Party Earth.

A beacon of class in a sea of dives, Yuma Bar combines art and theater with crafted cocktails and Belgian beers to offer a tasteful but still very casual night out.

Opened in 2008, the cozy venue quickly became a favorite of artsy kids and older creative types in need of a mellow evening, especially since Yuma’s open-ended hours can make it a good spot to end the night after rowdier area bars and clubs have shuttered.

Mondays sometimes see the small candlelit space fill with mature bohemians listening to local writer and poetry readings and sipping carefully crafted cocktails, while first and third Tuesdays host free origami lessons with master Diego Ahrendt, whose cat, incidentally, the bar is named after.

Other nights may include live radio shows and pantomime theater, while weekends normally find a vibrant multinational crowd listening to soul, hip-hop, and jazz as they sip Chimay or Westmalle Tripel and check out the original art on the deep red walls.

The chill vibe, combined with sultry lighting, dark wood furnishings, and funky little couches, often entices cool couples and close-knit friends to eschew a raucous night all together and instead cuddle in for the evening like so many lazy cats.

Although it’s located in an area not known for refinement, Yuma Bar is sure to delight those thirsting for culture and the just plain thirsty.

    The Shilling Bar (Weserstraße 9) is just around the corner and has a similar vibe, and comparable menu of cocktails and spirits.

Feel right at home - but with better beer
Milla E. Apr 6, 2013
Just a stone's throw from Hermannplatz, Yuma is a soothing bolthole from the square's perpetual Friday-night chaos. In this small but perfectly-formed bar, you'll find gently 70s-flavoured decor lit in a calming red-orange hue usually seen in reptile tanks. The furniture is slightly battered, but not to the artful extent of newer establishments with more to prove, and there is some artwork on the walls that merits closer inspection. Weekday service is casual to the point of indifference and the leather sofas are inviting, making this an ideal place to nurse a beer, a coffee or an incipient hangover for hours, with a book if at all possible. Regular DJs spin on Wednesdays and weekends, and otherwise the music is well-chosen but never intrusive – this is also an ideal spot for a cozy private tête-à-tête or a long chat with friends over the underrated cocktails. A wide range of beers (with an emphasis on Belgian specialties – if you've been struggling to get hold of a Delirium Tremens or have a hankering for Leffe, this is the place for you), straightforward comfort and seriously open-ended hours ensure a loyal clientele. The perfect destination before, after or instead of more frantic excursions. Smoking permitted.
