GayCities Members report that Juniper Kitchen and Bar (at Axel Hotel Berlin) has closed
Instantly popular gay-run food destination
Three bear/bear-hugging homosexuals — an Irishman, Englishman and American — opened this light and airy indoor/outdoor restaurant at the Axel Hotel in January 2016, in the space previously occupied by Hamburger Mary's. Retro burgers and novelty atmosphere have been replaced by modern European takes on rack of lamb and green risotto, served in a coolly stylish setting. Breakfast here caters to both Axel guests and the visiting public. The enterpreneurial trio also operate a 5pm–10pm rooftop bar on the hotel's seventh floor, opened sometime between May and September, depending on the start and end of seasonal warmth. The name restaraunt's refers to a gin created exclusively for the establishment by local distiller Marcus O'Shea. U-Bahn: Wittenbergplatz. This entry was generated by a GayCities user. Closed spring 2017, with the space back in the domain of Axel Hotel.

      Hot staff and great food
      Food is always great - and my tip is the chicken with ricotta. And the amazing Panna Cotta! The hot staff makes the place even more enjoyable

      A fun night had by all
      I stopped by for a drink at the bar. I then decided to stay for a meal. Hanging out at the bar was very fun and the meal was delicious!

      this place is awesome
      The bartenders are very friendly and will chat freely. They offer advice on anything you ask. They made a recommendation for their home made raviolis which were awesome. They change up what the raviolis are filled with and so far nothing has been anything but excellent. My husband had a dish with mushrooms. He is not a mushroom fan, but the way they were cooked he loves. His plate was clean at the end. I highly recommend them to anyone heading to Berlin.

      The perfect Comfort-Zone
      It does´t matter what the reason was, why u came here. You will definitely feel the comfortable atmosphere in every kind of way... A get together w/ friends even for dinner or great drinks, a romantic atmosphere with your love or a great warm up for a night out. Concentration is based on a menu which is not overloaded and a perfect match for everyone between a snack or a x-course menu. Really good quality of food and drinks, stunning service where u see happiness in there faces. I am really happy, that the Axel Hotel decided to work with them. Absolutely a recommendation and I am really looking forward for the warm days with terrace and rooftop. Great Job... Love xxx

      5 stars!
      In my last trip to Berlin I got to spend a some time in juniper, I really enjoyed every time I was there. The food is delicious and the drinks during an afterwards were fantastic as well. The service was perfect and they spoke both German and English which was extremely helpful. The masculine atmosphere and cool style makes this a restaurant that I will definitely be visiting again.

      where flavour, friends and flair rub shoulders!
      although in some respects its ultra modern 'international style,' marginally high pricing and off the beaten track location may allow one pause to hesitate in a city known for its unusual affordability and laissez-faire interpretation of urbanity , the long-awaited and highly anticipated blossoming of the shared vision of the founders of "juniper" has been executed with a combination of taste, style and exuberant but classy fun. berliners and visitors alike have both reviled and proudly embraced the moniker of "poor but sexy". in this light, juniper offers exceptionally tasty and thoughtfully prepared offerings, influenced by the fusion trends of the past decade, at prices that would not allow many patrons to visit other than for celebratory occasions. if the matter of cost were to be adjusted to those in keeping with the berliner portmonaie, i am convinced that the juniper bush will continue thrive and bare exceptional fruit! Well done Adam, Davey and Paul. Drei mal hoch!

      The new kid on the block!!! Juniper Kitchen & Bar :-))
      Looking for a great place to have dinner and amazing cocktails with homemade Gin :-) well Juniper is the place to be. In the Axel hotel and one street away from the main gay bars of Schönenberg, great place to have some dinner and warm up drinks before a crazy night out on the town. :-))

      Fabulous new gay restaurant in the Axel Hotel
      The previous restaurant is gone and this newcomer has stepped it up to create a fun dining experience in a trendy setting. I highly recommend the homemade Ravioli Pillows with Sage, or the chicken stuffed with ricotta and the flavor of juniper berries. Wash it all down with one of their tasty cocktails made from their own Gin! Bravo
