Pony Bar

Founded by a student initiative, the Pony Bar is much more than just somewhere to drink. In the evenings, the café turns into a pub that serves not only beer, wine and Cuba Libre, but also offers a varied cultural programme.

The university custom of always arriving late for class has a very simple explanation: after all, before the lecture theatres are filled, the students and lecturers need a coffee and a Franzbrötchen. Where better to do so than at the nearby Pony Bar?

Against the acoustic backdrop of the football table, you can listen to the expert conversations of study groups, the chit-chat of latecomers and the sound of spoon in café au lait cups (€ 2.40). During the day, you will find everything you need when you have time for a break: ginger tea, pretzel breadsticks, rhubarb juice. And, of course, Bionade: this is where the drink, which has since become infamous as “Bionade Biedermeier” has its cultural origins, here in the student milieu of the Hansestadt.

The Pony Bar is literally a world apart from the bourgeois saturation you will find in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg district. Founded by a student initiative, the Pony Bar is much more than just somewhere to drink. In the evenings, the café turns into a pub that serves not only beer, wine and Cuba Libre, but also offers a varied cultural programme. Singer/songwriters give cosy concerts in the back room, rappers grab the open mic, jazzers sit down at the agedt piano. Exhibitions and readings round off the programme. And on Sundays, you sit down on one of Granny’s club chairs and listen to the Klaus Doldinger fanfare: Tatort is on TV! 

On such occasions, the place can get pretty full, also on weekends when DJs play and it’s party time. During the day, it’s easier to find a seat, especially in summer, when you can sit outside: you’ll want to stay an extra fifteen minutes – because we don’t just learn in a lecture room, we learn from life!

Amanda 66

Although it’s only a short distance away, but fully separated from the great commotion of the Schanzenviertel, the Amanda 66 is one of the most pleasant bars in the city.
