Stirred, never shaken. The Boilerman Bar specializes in so-called Highballs. These drinks are made from a base spirit like whisky or gin and a “filler” such as ginger ale, tonic water or similar.

He used to stand on the steam engine tender and shovelled coals into the boiler – the so-called “boilerman”. In the bar of the same name in Eppendorf, things are anything else but hot – on the contrary: here, they use a Japanese luxury ice machine that produces over-dimensionally large, spherical ice cubes. 

The Boilerman Bar specialized in so-called Hxghballs. These drinks are made from a base spirit like whisky or gin and a “filler” such as ginger ale, tonic water or similar. The most famous highball must be the Gin & Tonic. You might think it’s easy to prepare such drinks – but at the Boilerman they elevated into an art form.

You take a dizzying selection of whisky, gin or rum, supplement it by these fine fillers and serve it in a crisp cool glass with the mentioned massive ice cubes – the result: a refreshing drink full of delicious aromas, which isn’t watery despite the ice.

In addition to well-known variants such as Moscow Mule or Pimm’s Cup, there are also daring own creations such as the “Suffering Bastard” with gin, brandy, ginger beer and bitters.

Those who like it a little stronger can also find a few other classics such as Manhattan, Old Fashioned or Whiskey Sour at the Boilerman Bar, whereby the use of a cocktail shaker might well be avoided. Also on the menu: Champagne and wine, and an exquisite selection of beer ranging from Rolninck Pilsner and Pale Ale to southern German premium beers such as Maisel and Tegernseer Helles.

930 metres of nightlife & entertainment Reeperbahn

Not even one kilometre in length, and yet rich in contrast: the Reeperbahn is bright and shrill, vibrant and down-to-earth – and so much more than just “the sinful mile”. A hotspot for live music and famous for its party atmosphere, the legendary entertainment district in the heart of St Pauli is always worth a visit, offering anything from glamorous shows to colourful musicals.
