Prenzlauer Berg’s coziest parlor is filled to the brim with a sense of family and tradition, having been owned uninterruptedly by the same family since opening. The original Berlin-style congeniality is enhanced by the tiled ovens and the cabinets filled with preserves. For long-time residents, this has been the place for birthdays, weddings, baptisms, and funerals. Visitors will find draft scripts from theater greats and a handwritten letter from illustrator Heinrich Zille, who had to cancel his attendance to the ball given here in his honor due to unforeseen health issues. “Choir kids” are regulars here, and many a musician has used the set for music videos. But never without beer and ham hock.
