Monkey Bar Berlin
Above the rooftops of Berlin-Charlottenburg, in the middle of the Bikini complex, guests of the Monkey Bar are seduced by a stunning view. From the 10th floor they can see the city and the zoo from a new and glassy perspective, well supplied with exclusive drinks, cocktails and small dishes from the NENI Berlin kitchen.
A hotel bar that could hardly be more unusual, it is a brief abduction into an industrial jungle full of flair. The 25hours Hotel at Budapester Str. 40 in Charlottenburg has created an absolute hot spot with this amusement bar. The dress code is appropriate.
Monkeys become art on the walls, the jungle inspires plants, wood, tiki glasses and urban patterns. In fact, the monkeys can also be spotted a few floors below, with a little luck. Or maybe the monkeys are watching the visitors…. City-West has become livelier and more vibrant thanks to the cocktail bar.
Glass makes a clear view possible, even in the ladies‘ toilets. The concept of atmosphere actually runs through the entire ambience. To ensure that every guest can really enjoy the stunning view, they can sit grandstand-style and even snuggle into comfortable cushions in some places. At the same time, he enjoys the view from the very top in front of the full glazing. In summer, the front opens and guests are open air, under the open sky, above the rooftops of the city, the monkey enclosure, the zoo.
Especially gourmets will get their money’s worth. Noble & selected spirits bring style and true class into the rooms. It has specialized especially in an exclusive selection of gin, whiskey and rum. Varieties that are not available everywhere may enjoy the gourmet in wonderful height. It offers itself to be advised by the personnel regarding the beverages. These are not only exclusive in the selection, but also in the composition as a cocktail a highlight. In fact, something new is discovered with every visit. Drinks, dishes and attention to detail.

In the meantime, the NENI Berlin kitchen conjures up small dishes for the guests. Fresh Caesar salad, sweet potato fries, hummus or chicken strips in an almond crust make cocktails like „Jungleside Fizz“ or „Monkey Monk“ taste even better. But also an „Upside – Down – Bananacake“ tastes wonderful with a „Five Elephant Espresso“.
The drinks menu is also something to behold. You’ll find on offer here are many exotic tiki drinks, whose name refers to South Sea-inspired rum-based cocktails.
For example, the tiki classic Mai Tai is served at the Monkey Bar with two kinds of rum, orange liqueur, grapefruit juice, falernum syrup and arak.
You are more into gin cocktails in different variations?
Again, the gin and tonic-based cocktails taste great here. The Tea & T consists of homemade Earl Grey gin, orange blossom water and tonic.
If you like it a bit more crunchy, we recommend the Spicy Basil G&T, which gets its spiciness from ginger and its freshness from basil leaves.
Those who want to avoid alcohol will find soft drinks, coffee and tea variations as well as delicious non-alcoholic cocktails. If you spontaneously change your mind and leave your car behind, you can make use of the good public transport connections or order a cab. DJ’s support the exotic and at the same time urban industrial event location with their atmospheric music. The hotel parties are also not to be missed. Regular events with a wide variety of artists also round out the concept.
It’s definitely worth checking the event location’s calendar regularly, because reservations are highly recommended in this in-bar. There have already been queues, which must be legendary by now. Due to the 25hours Hotel, international guests meet Berliners in the venue, every evening and every night seem to be different.
By the way, during the warmer season it is always worth visiting, because the sunset on the terrace is just great. The view and the atmosphere give a direct vacation feeling and relaxation. Eat a snack and the everyday life can stay somewhere else. The New Year’s Eve party is „glamorous, sexy and (be)ruschend“ with fireworks over the capital.
The Monkey Bar Berlin has managed to become known worldwide in a very short time. It is now obligatory for a long-time resident to have been there at least once. The only danger is that he then wants to go there more often. The area is open 7 days a week and the metropolis and its hotel guests show their gratitude. The level of awareness continues to rise, the monkeys get a positive image and the City West has another highlight.
On the 10th floor, a large wooden counter extends in the middle of the room, surrounded by wooden stools. You will be immediately fascinated by the view. The view of the zoo, the Europa Center and the Gedächniskirche is beautiful.
The bare concrete walls are punctuated by a relief depicting monkeys at play. The monkey motif is also found in the lush vases that adorn the counter.

If I were to recommend the best time to visit, it would be at sunset, of course. But I’m guessing that’s also when the inn is at its most crowded. Keep in mind.

get the best seats, though, because this is a very popular spot, and you can expect a bit of a line. But it’s worth it, because this is one of the best rooftop terraces Berlin has to offer.
The verdict on the Monkey Bar could not be more varied. Some men praise the interesting women they can meet there, and some self-confident women are on the lookout for men who don’t come along like cribs without top heat. Still others praise the good quality of the drinks. The crowd can be super mixed and sometimes a bit awkward, as quite a few people come here for the view rather than the drinks. That shouldn’t stop you from experiencing this restaurant.

Large selection of rum-based tiki cocktails.
