Entering the bar is rather like stepping back in time. Ancient old oak panels and antique bottles decorate the walls of this bar, which is said to have opened in 1892.

Along one wall is an oar and an Olympic certificate awarded to the founders's son for winning Gold in the 1932  Los Angeles' games.

Included in rather interesting artefacts  in the bar is a still working Krupps' till from about 1921 and a fantastic juke box surrounded by the old box from where old man Hoeck would survey his empire.

The friendly nature of both staff and patrons ensured a return visit when  the delights of local Berlin specialities were sampled.

Beer to drink?

 "Watch the taps flow," as they say in Berlin and try the Berlin Kindle, awesome!
