Occupying a Bauhaus apartment building, this multilevel warren has a great rooftop bar, restaurant, a basement club and a tiny art-house cinema. Expect live performances, art and new-media exhibitions, or at the very least a solid DJ and fab Acropolis view. In colder months, most activity is in Tesla, the ground-floor bar.
