Rose’s

The iconic pink walls and kitsch décor of this Kreuzberg institution are presided over by Gabriella, the Anglo-German barmaid who loves to chat up foreigners in her hammed-up Geordie accent and dole out free drinks to her favorites. Attracting all sorts, from street toughs and trannies to Turkish hookers and drug casualties, this visual feast of a bar is the kind of place where you’re almost guaranteed to meet new people.
