Kreuzberg / Neukölln, Berlin –
A proud holdout against Kreuzberg’s health-crazed-hipster revolution, Room 77 is a gritty rock bar with a Tex-Mex menu that’d make a yoga mom cry.
On sunny afternoons, casual locals and young tourists day drink on the sidewalk patio, enjoying several varieties of imported beer and debating between nachos, chili, or – as the chalkboard near the entrance suggests – the “Best F***ing Burger in Town!”
Self-adulation aside, much of the grub is reportedly made from old family recipes – one of the owners is an expat from Texas – and includes an assortment of burritos and quesadillas to go with signature burgers like the colossal three-patty Triple Bypass.
Evenings see rock-ready college kids plopping down at the wooden bar and fighting for space on the mismatched couches, as first-timers eye the random curios on the otherwise bare walls, like a vintage snowboard and what looks like the headboard to somebody’s bed.
On Fridays, the small space fills up quickly with a raucous crowd of greasy-spoon guests looking to booze hard and catch some unscheduled live rock, while those with enough muster come back on weekends for breakfast plates or the Currasco Steak Burger, a slow-cooked slab of beef garnished with as many toppings as the hungover crowd can order.
Whether patrons have grumbling stomachs or dry livers, Room 77 is about the closest they’ll get to a Texas roadhouse in Berlin, especially if they remember to order a deep-fried Mars bar for dessert.
Local drunks, burger buffs, Mexican cuisine cravers, rockers, ironic cowboy wannabes, and alternatives of all kinds, early 20s to 60s.
Unscheduled live music several times a week. Otherwise, a playlist of pre-1980s rock and roll, rockabilly, country and western, and bluegrass.
Assortment of mostly Tex-Mex fare, including burritos, hamburgers, quesadillas, and a weekend breakfast menu. Indoor smoking room and outdoor smoking patio. Venue accepts person-to-person digital currency Bitcoin.
No cover charge. Appetizers €4–€5, entrées €7–€15. Beer €2+, wine €4+, spirits €2.50–€10.
Casual: white t-shirts, jeans, daisy dukes, flip-flops, cowboy boots, plaid, biker boots, lots of leather.
Any sunny afternoon to chill on the patio, Friday and Saturday nights for a rowdy Texas roadhouse vibe, or weekends during the day for food made to treat even the worst hangover.
Bei Schlawinchen (34 Schönleinstrasse) is a classic 24/7 dive bar with dirt-cheap whiskey and beer and a class of patrons known to get rowdy at all hours.
