Bar Chick loves a good hotel lobby, and they serve us well all around the world. From Ace Hotel in London to The Standard in New York, you can always rely on a lobby to hold you for a few hours, caress you gently with booze while you recline on whatever louche furniture is around pretending it’s your own home (or is that just us…).

Michelberger is all of the above, but as an original, independent hotel, it’s also got a quirky, one-of-a kind feel that Bar Chick loves. The mis-matched furniture and eclectic collectables give the space a bohemian feel that makes you wanna kick off your shoes put your feet up - and most people do. Outside is a sun-filled terrace with a banging sound system where DJs play sick beats all afternoon and into the evening.

The cocktails are decent, there’s a good selection of craft beers and there’s even coconut water on tap (Bar Chick likes hers with added rum). And when you’re ready to go out and play, the super-friendly team will give you tips on the best places to go. It also happens to be around the corner from Berghain, so you can drown your sorrows here after being turned away from the door….
