Neighborhood: Kreuzberg

The paper lanterns dangling merrily from the ceiling of Bateau Ivre draw hoards of thirsty locals into the 'sinking ship'. The lanterns are lit the whole day - even in the summer when most people are out at the bistro tables enjoying the sun. This earthy bar attracts a stream of visitors by day but really gets going in the evening when an orchestra of voices, laughter and music combines to create the unique atmosphere that you can only find in Kreuzberg. One side of the bar overlooks bustling Heinrichplatz; the other side faces Oranienstraße, Kreuzberg's nightlife hotspot with a touch of the Orient. Prices range from EUR2-EUR8 for food, EUR1 for coffee, EUR1 for soft drinks, EUR3 for wine and EUR2 for beer.
