You’ll find Curtain Club located inside the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Berlin. As the name suggests, the interior of Curtain Club is surrounded by huge draping curtains. This exceptionally cool bar serves up a vast selection of impressive cocktails, with their speciality being to create a cocktail with a matching fragrance. Guests here are encouraged to browse a selection of perfumes and choose their desired scent, after which the expert bar tenders create a cocktail to match.

When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the friendly staff, before making a start on our cocktail selections. First up, I ordered the Alice in Wonderland which was mixed with 20% Turtle sake, 20% Belvedere vodka, 20% fresh lemon, 5% strawberry, 10% Frangelico hazelnut liqueur and finished with 25% rhubarb foam. It was a punchy, fruity cocktail that was absolutely delicious - it went down very nicely indeed.

My partner ordered the Sazerac which was crafted with 80% Hennessy Fine, 80% Martell Cordon Bleu, 80% Hudson Manhattan Rye, 4% Peychauds Herbal Tincture, 7.5% Absinthe and 8.5% sugar. This was an exceptionally aromatic cocktail that really got the taste buds going.

For my second cocktail, I ordered the Wolfsblut which was a combination of 52% Talisker Storm, 13% Chateau de Breuil 8 Jahre, 6% Eau de vie Rosemary, 3% Lavender, 13% Frankinsence, complete with 13% honey. This herby cocktail was perfectly balanced in flavour, with just the right amount of sweetness.

“The service was excellent and the drinks were simply superb!”

My partner opted for the Dia de los Muertos which is mixed with 27% Don Julio Anejo, 27% Absolute Mandarin, 1% orange flower water, 27% fresh lemon, 9% patchouli complete with 9% Frankinsence. This was a vibrant cocktail, which was certainly a nod to the colourfulness of the Day of the Dead festival.

Finally I chose the Mori San which included 30% yuzu infused Star of Bombay gin, 20% Himmelswind Sake, 10% Cointreau Noir, 5% Orange Blossom, 5% Musk Seeds, 20% fresh lemon juice, 5% cedar wood and finally 5% mint. The wonderful flavours in this cocktail were simply sublime and demonstrated the immense skills of the team here.

My partner ended the evening with a Paradisian Colada which includes 27% Havana Club Anejo Especial, 7% Cointreau, 54% pineapple, 4% bergamot, 4% lemon grass and 4% coconut. A twist on a classic, this cocktail was the ideal evening finisher.

We were very impressed with the Curtain Club, and will certainly return during our next trip to Berlin. The service was excellent and the drinks were simply superb!
