TheCoven Formerly: The Sharon Stonewall Bar

80% love it
Chic and manly Mitte bar
Two of the Prinzknecht bar's more prized and exotic barmen – then partners Armand Manukyan (from Armenia) and Kai Arama (from Tel Aviv) – defected in 2013 to open their own establishment. Such is the über-stylish and minimalist Thilo Reich-designed Coven, with its steel, mesh and woody surfaces, antiquey lighting and a compatible menu of fresh and inventive drinks (cocktail alert). And with an eye and ear for fashion and DJ trends, this has a distinctly 'manly lifestyle' feel, but the owners wish to emphasise that it's not just for boys. Youngish and chic, gay and straight are all welcome. And yes, it's TheCoven, not The Coven. The bar is now overseen by Manukyan only. Opened 25 September 2014. Located seconds from gay bar TheLiberate [see entry]. S-Bahn: Hackescher Markt. U-Bahn: Weinmeisterstraße.

      Great Bar For A Classy Cocktail, or Two. Let's start with the obvious, the Owners and Bartenders; they are just plain sexy; however, don't let that intimidate you, I have always found them to be very down to earth and polite. They pay a great deal of attention, from how they craft each cocktail, down to the appearance of their bar. The bar itself is very dark, masculine and industrial with a chic minimalist decor. Smoking is allowed inside, so if you are a non-smoker, this may be the only negative. All in all, TheCoven is a great bar to finish off a night of exploring Berlin, or the perfect bar to begin a night of bar hopping.

      Bad attitude, bad atmosphere, terrible service, shitty drinks and NO ONE in the bar (not surprising). Went two streets down to a great place (Bar St. Jean) had a great time! DO NOT GO TO THIS HOLE IN THE WALL

      Incredibly sexy bar!
      The bar is as sexy as the owners themselves! Very chill crowd in stylish but comfortable surroundings. Great as both a weekday neighborhood stop or before a late night out on the town.
