Kleines Phi Cocktail bar with feel-good atmosphere.

© T. Schreiber

Heart, experience and intellect - this is the secret recipe for a successful bar in Hamburg. At least for the Little Phi in Hamburg. There are not only cocktails and snacks, but also a lot of good humour and a lot of people to get to know.

Walking through the streets of Hamburg by nighttime you will most likely notice some poor and unpleasant bars.  The thought "I could do the same!" will probably cross your mind. But is that enough to open up your own bar? Shouldn’t the ambition go: "I could do BETTER!"? But what do you actually need for setteling down as a gastronome? The answer is simple: heart, know-how and the human mind.

When it comes to setting up a successful business based on a simple idea, Philip Schulz and his cocktail bar are an excellent example. Originally trained as hotel manager, he worked several years as a bar tender in the hotel business – always feeling the urge for something else. Philip dreamed of being his own boss one day. In May 2015 he finally made his dream come true by opening up a cocktail bar called “Kleines Phi” at Hamburg’s trend neighbourhood Karoviertel. Since then he is working behind the bar serving homemade drinks three to four days a week.

At the moment, guests can chose between twelve different cocktails and six different highballs, as well as various types of beer. However, the list of beverages will be shortened soon so that Philip and his small team can offer a faster and better service. In the course of this process, the concept of the bar will always stay the same: serving qualitative spirits from all over the World.

The cozy interior, consisting of rustic desk and chairs from the garage sale as well as a bar, welded together from old industrial pipes invite you to spend a long evening. The lovely herb garden behind the house provides the drinks with fresh greens.

Soon, cocktail workshops by the guys from "Trivent Barkonzepte" will take place in "Kleines Phi" – beginners as well as advanced courses. Then, Philip Schulz will finally reveal his detailed knowledge to the participants. Who knows, maybe many great bars will soon appear in Hamburg’s trendy neighbourhoods.
