THE GILDED (DRINKING) AGE

If a former Prussian king and a trendy Berliner were trying to decide on a place to have drinks together, they would probably end up at August II. Like most watering holes in the neighborhood, the place has an unadorned facade and door. But once inside this small Auguststrasse bar, one feels transported to some Gilded Age. There are gold painted walls, some plastered with antique framed mirrors, a massive glitzy chandelier and a series of traditional Chesterfield sofas. Still, the feeling is uncomplicated and heartwarming, catering to real Berliners. — J.W.
