Vox Cigar Bar at Grand Hyatt Berlin

Enjoying well crafted cocktails at Vox Cigar Bar at Grand Hyatt Berlin was the perfect way to end my first night in Berlin, Germany

After dinner at Paulaner Wirshaus, I walked back to the Grand Hyatt Berlin. I didn’t want to go to bed just yet. But, I didn’t want to go out to one of the clubs. So, I ventured to the hotel bar.

Sitting at the counter, I wanted to try some local distilled spirits. So, I was introduced to Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin. Usually, I don’t like gin. But, THIS was impressive.

So, I had a GIN AND TONIC made from it. I was shocked –  it was surprisingly delicious. Next up was a PEACH NECK (Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch, Schweppes Peach Lemonade, Apple, Rhubarb)

I finished with a BALEARIC SUMMER (Canonita, Reposado, Lemon juice, Basil Syrup, Sugarsyrup, orange).

The drinks were outstanding. But, what was even better were the conversations I got into with the bartenders. I learned about how frankly Germany deals with it’s colonizer past as well as the obvious atrocities. I learned about the German education system. As well as the Danish. One of the bartenders studied in France with a program that was an accelerated internship program. However, the credits didn’t transfer in Germany.

It was so much fun to have such incredible conversations. I learned about the Berlin club scene and about the firm sense of individualism that I saw within everyone.

There is a distinct spirit of process within the city. Even thought the regional food of the city might be a bit bland. It being sausage and sauces and all. But, what truly matters are the conversations that I learned from and will remember.
