Bar in City West & Charlottenburg

The spirit of French crooner Serge Gainsbourg hangs over this seductively lit lair beneath the S-Bahn arches. Round tables, candlelight, classic cocktails and chansons speak to a crowd including many old enough to have made out to 'Je t’aime', Serge’s steamy duet with Jane Birkin, at its 1969 release. Thumbs up for the whisky sour.
