Mysliwska was one of my first favorite bars in Kreuzberg as i first came to Berlin. It was grounded in 80’s by a Pole (that’s why the name is polish, It means ‘ a hunter’s bar’). Always gathers most different public,  Berlin artists, weirdos and tourists. But even though it’s always crowded, you can find a place to sit (  sometimes sharing a table with  other guests ).

Coolest time to visit is in summer when everybody  is hanging out  outside and drinking beer goes till dawn, and you go home with 5 new friends on your account. There is always a dj playing music (mostly blues and good, old rock n roll),  charming bar tenders make your evening even nicer..The polish accent in the bar is the polish beer Tyskie, which costs 3 euro for 0.5 l. The atmosphere is similar a bit to a mix of Tarantino’s and Almodovar’s movies: transvestite bartender, lots of suspicious characters but they do have charm, girls, boys, dandy’s  charmers and louts.

But with the blues vibes played always live by one of the local dj’s and a polish beer on the little dance floor you will make friends even with Capt. Hook. The bar is already legendary, you can meet Berliners who live here already since 40 years (or more) and it’s possible to chat with them if u have luck and you’re enough drunk with Tyskie. There are  no particular rules in here, you can be yourself but also you can be a Berliner here.

When it gets colder and rainy, it doesn’t matter. Come inside and have fun anyway.

Berlin should be my second name- i like my name too much, however,Berlin is the love of my life. If I leave it than only to have a love affair with another place, but I'll come back. From rock n roll dives to posh champagne bars , open airs, flea markets, bookstores, concept stores, caffes etc- i ve been (almost) everywhere. It's an electric city powered by thousands of different, creative people and it offers infinite cultural possibilities. If u won't fall in love in Berlin like i did, don't miss your chance for a fling at least..
