Let the evening beGIN
Our personal Top 5 of the best bars in Hamburg
The summer is definitely over and with it, unfortunately, the time when we enjoy an afterwork drink in the sun. It‘s cold and uncomfortable outside, so we prefer to spend our Friday and Saturday evenings in a cosy bar. You wonder where you can find such places in Hamburg? Here’s our Top 5-Bar Guide for you!
The Boilerman Bar
Since 2012 at home at Eppendorfer Weg, the Boilerman Bar has quickly established itself. Everything is just right here: a great selection of drinks, competent people on the other side of the bar and a dignified atmosphere. However, those who expect classic cocktails here are out of place. Besides whiskey and a small selection of beer, highballs are the speciality here.
Where? Eppendorfer Weg 211
Best drink: The Gin Basil Highball is an absolute MUST!
Prices: The Highballs are available from € 6.50
The Clockers on St. Pauli is noble, stylish and cosy – but by far not only because of its unique atmosphere. The spirits are also from their own production and have the highest quality: around 18 fine varieties of gin are ready and waiting to be tasted by you.
You can also discover the variety of gin at clockers during a two-hour gin tasting. Together with the experts, you will go on a journey into the world of juniper spirits.
Where? Paul-Roosen-Str. 27
Best drink: Of course the Clockers Gin – because it simply tastes great!
Prices: All gin varieties cost on average about € 10
The Gone Away Bar
You don’t feel like boring drinks anymore? Then you should definitely stop by “The Gone Away Bar”! The American cocktail bar at Rotherbaum area leaves nothing but chances: Here the juice is freshly pressed, each syrup is cooked in their own kitchen and many spirits are produced by themselves. Some of the drinks on the menu are real classics, others were invented by the owner Max. If you can’t find the drink you are craving for, you can still order it – the nice people behind the bar will do their best.
Where? Milchstraße 25
Best drink: The Paloma Smash with Blanco Tequila, Mezcal, Cointreau, Grapefruit, Lime and agave syrup
Prices: Don’t be afraid, all cocktails are priced between 12-18 €, but they’re very strong and every sip is worth its price
Are you looking for a bar in a special location? Then we have just the thing for you: the tower bar, a cocktail bar with a cosy atmosphere, a smoking lounge and a terrace. After a short ascent you reach the trendy bar in a former bunker in the Hamburg-Rotherbaum district. Once at the top, an incomparable ambience and a great drinks menu await you. In addition to a large selection of different spirits such as gin, rum, vodka, whiskey or tequila, classic long drinks or cocktails are also mixed here.

Best drink: The Tiki Mule with Rhum Agricole, Falernum, Jägermeister, Lime and Ginger lemonade

Aperitivo. Bar. Cafe. All this and much more awaits you at Standard, at the end of the street Große Freiheit. The owners of the bar have set themselves the goal of establishing the aperitivo culture in Hamburg and serve a daily changing selection of Stuzzichini with every drink. These are small starters made from seasonal ingredients that can also be eaten with a toothpick.
Besides the delicious Stuzzichini you can also look forward to a large selection of fantastic drinks. From a good glass of wine to a refreshing Spritz to the Italian classic Negroni – you will not only be pampered with culinary delights, but also with good drinks!
Where? Große Freiheit 90
