Das Gift is an old Berliner style Kneipe which was taken over by a Scottish couple; one a musician and the other an artist. We decided to keep the bar as it was, complete with the tree & taxidermy birds installation created by the previous owner.
What was important to us was to add a wider selection of special drinks, including beers from Scotland and handmade vodka from Austria, and having quick and friendly service. We like to play an interesting music selection from new as well as established artists, and regularly host after show parties.
The former darts club room is now a separate gallery space which hosts exhibitions and projects by international and local artists. It is also suitable for use as a pop-up shop or market. Please contact us if you are interested in using this space.
Our bar has a separate smoking room.
We believe in fair distribution of money for musicians and have paid GEMA since opening.
