Buck & Breck

Cocktail Bar in Scheunenviertel

Liquid maestro Gonçalo de Sousa Monteiro and his baseball-cap wearing team treat grown-up patrons to libational flights of fancy in their clandestine cocktail salon with classic yet friendly flair. Historical short drinks are a strength, including the eponymous bubbly-based cocktail Buck and Breck, named for mid-19th-century US president James Buchanan and his VP John Breckinridge.

It's often packed to capacity, but you can leave your number and someone will call you when space opens up at the 14-seat bar or in the added lounge area.
