Bata Bar & Billiards


At the Bata Bar you can play pool on twelve tables in a great atmosphere right at Berlin Hauptbahnhof or also dart and table-soccer. A good drink and some billiards – what better way to end this beautiful day in Moabit? On Monday you can play two hours for free. In case you have to wait, you can make the wait worth while by playing board games such as Ludo or Monopoly.

George R in Moabit

George R


In Moabit there are countless corner pubs, but hardly any decent bars for serving properly mixed drinks. With the George R finally a cosy candlelight bar opened, where you can relax and oil your throat with a serious palette of whiskeys and Scotches or drinks mixed on point.

Bar Café Tirrée


Always looking for a nice bar in Moabit... Tirée opened in 2013 as a small art bar, and is a beautiful small breakfast café and bar today. Everything is homemade - the delicious, super creamy typical German Bircher Muesli or the vegan breakfast platters. In addition you can drink coffee or warm juices in different versions or in the evening you can have a few drinks and watch the hustle and bustle on the Birkenstraße.

Before going to the Heine Bar

Heine Bar


Heine Bar describes itself as the neighborhood living room and probably does the best job at mixing drinks on point (together with the George R bar). This bar offers a charming, easy and down to earth ambience. The smoking area is separated, make sure to save yourself a seat at the cosy fireplace. Also the game night every Thursday is highly recommended.


Putlitzstraße 19, 10551 Berlin (Moabit), +49 176 43 24 94 61,, Station: U9 Birkenstraße, Tue–Thu 19:00–1:00, Fr, Sat 19:00–3:00
