It's a bit difficult to get to (just take a taxi), but it has great cocktails and does not seem to be overrun by tourists. (The mannequin in the men's room made me do a double take the first time I went in - well played!)

I gave visited this place several times. Every time I was impressed by rage variety of selection and also the fantastic service. You just mention what direction if drink you may want to go, and they suggested different drink. So far each suggestion was outstanding. For me the best place in Hamburg for cocktails.

We came here on new years eve and it was a great choice. I was worried it was going to be packed out but it was just the right amount of busy and we were seated at the bar with probably the only warm and friendly service we received during our whole time in Hamburg. Cocktail list is extensive so... More

Me and my boyfriend went here on our first full day in Hamburg for NYE after seeing fireworks on the harbour. We were served by Michael and he was very very accommodating, asking us what flavours and spirits we enjoy and making us each a cocktail off the menu to our taste (baring in mind the cocktail list is already...

The place is very nice to stay inddor or outdoor and enjoy one of this SO LAAAARGE list of international cocktails. The cocktails are pretty well prepared, even if for that level it could still be better and a bit more generous. Or Pisco Sour was really too .... sour (even if we LOVE tue sourness of pisco sour) in... More

The title says it all. The cocktails are exceptional and they have a very good range of (mostly Scottish) whiskys. The place is quite small, the service chipper and quick. Only downside in my opinion are the bar stools that are way to high for a normal person and therefore not very comfy. Would go again in a heartbeat.

I visit Hamburg regularly and came to this lovely cocktail bar with a friend. The service was great as soon as we stepped in! I tried a few different cocktails...the young bar man had a real knowledge, talent and passion for cocktail making! He made a few different kinds for me...each one was spot on, fabulous! I noticed the bar... More

...with knowledgable staff and a nice low key atmosphere. Keep a watch out for it though as it can be quite easy to walk past!

Stopped in last night for a drink and it turned out to be one of the best. Great atmosphere and the bar staff took great care and pride in their drinks. We all enjoyed our drinks and will be back soon. The house Negroni was incredible.

I visited Christiansen's for a friend's party and had been told about their fantastic cocktails. I tried a few--including one with Elderflower syrup--and it was good but I would not say out of the park. They do give you plenty of snacks, which is a nice touch. One of my friends also ordered nachos, which were average. They offer free... More
