A great place for everybody who likes good drinks and Karl May (who lived in/near Dresden). The interior has paintings and decoration with motives from Karl May books. Drinks were really good.

Lovely bar in the Kempinsky Hotel. Fascinating to look at the pictures displays of items owned by Karl May, the adventurer. Good if not lengthy cocktail menu, so be prepared.

After my second visit to this bar I am somewhat dissapointed by the (arogant) personnel. Although they have an award winning barkeeper ordering an espresso based coctail that is not on the official menu (challenging their fanatsy) seems to overwhelm them. Even after speaking to...More

It is a wonderful, old English style bar with dark wood panels. Great coctails that come with tasty olives and nuts. Not cheap but great for a before-dinner drink. They also have a food menu - typical bar fare with club sandwiches and such -...More
