Tucked away along a quiet street in the heart of Schöneberg, STAGGER LEE COCKTAIL BAR is certainly a special place. This bar has been consistently recognised as one of the most solid cocktail bars in the city. The cocktails alone are worth a visit, but if you are also into themed cool bars, this is a place for you. To get here hop on the U-Bahn to Nollendorplatz and walk for 5 minutes.
Stagger Lee is inspired by the Wild West. Wait! Don’t worry. It does not feel like a Disney bar. In fact, the cool thing about this bar is that it brings the theme up-to-date and blends it with a distinct Berlin vibe. Walk up to the door and ring the bell (yes, it’s one of those “ring-the-doorbell” kind of places). Stagger Lee’s design is moody, woody and tasteful. We love how the shaded walls, candle lights and chandeliers illuminate the space just enough to create the perfect mood. The wooden and leather elements, piano and antique cash till round off the whole design scheme.
The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Great combo! The menu covers classics as well as highly innovative cocktails. You will also find an impressive selection of bourbons. We have always chosen whiskey and bourbon based cocktails and must say that we have always been mega satisfied. Take your pick, though. You are bound to have a great cocktail. By the way, this bar was named one of the top 50 bars of the world by “The world’s 50 best bars”. Can’t be bad, ha?
The crowd is mixed and unpretentious. The ambiance is friendly and cosy. You might want to either try and make a reservation or call in advance to see if there’s space availability. It does get crowded.
