An erstwhile cult fave, Pinguin Club is still a popular choice for a night about town thanks to its friendly and open atmosphere. 1950s America is the theme here and you'll find plenty of rock'n'roll memorabilia scattered around the joint - along with several characters who look like they might belong to the Beatnik generation! This bar is most famous however for its dangerously long list of spirits and a punk and alternative playlist. In the madness that ensues, safe to say you're almost bound to 'pick up at Pinguin'.
this place is not for tourists who like a clean tidy place. this is punk-rock.if you punk you love it,if not piss off!!!

One of the coolest places, and with extremely nice staff, a pleasure to hang out. The german pils beer is always spot on, as are the cocktails and long drinks. The background music always a pleasure to discover. All in all a perfect place to spend an hour or two in good company. Been going back here at every opportunity for the past 25 years

The Pinguin Club. Dear Lord. Where do I begin? I read a review whereby someone called it "one of the best bars in Berlin". I sit here deeply concerned for the reviewer in question. Firstly, it is not a club and barely constitutes as a bar.It is a room, a very small room. It promises "delights from the 1950's". The 1950's is probably the last time it was cleaned and that is the only connection there. There is a disco ball, albeit hanging from a rusty nail behind the bar but thats is it. Pleasant bar tender but really the descriptions of this bar bring new meaning to the phrase "misleading". Dreadful.
