I am totally in love with this bar! The atmosphere is amazing and the service is good. The only problem is that it is always full there so it is a good idea to call and make a reservation if you are more than 3 people. Sometimes you can be lucky and still get a place but especially at the weekend, you should make a reservation (You can also book a table online here or you can call them). They have more locations in Germany but I just have been in the in Berlin one. The bar is located in the Kantstraße and it is near from the S & U Zoologischer Garten and U-Kurfürstendamm. Check the location here. This place is the perfect start for a nice evening. The music gets you in party mood, the service is nice and fun, the drinks are amazing and the whole location is just great. The chairs are not the most comfortable ones but this you forget really fast after the first zip from your amazing cocktail! 😉
Food & Drinks
The cocktails are just amazing! Every drink I took there til now was really tasty. I am more this fresh and fruity kind of person when it comes to drinks, and trust me they have much of this. My boyfriend likes cocktails with whipped cream and he says that these are also very good. Sausalitos use good alcohol and this you taste in the cocktails, you really can taste that they do not use the cheap stuff. They use like Smirnoff, Absolut, Sierra Tequila and so on. After two cocktails I often feel already dizzy sometimes after one big one. They have two sizes in the drinks and I nearly always take the big one. A really cool thing is that they do not use normal fruits to decorate the cocktails, they use sweets like marshmallows and this is really fun. Now to the food! At first, you need to visit the Taco Tuesday! You get a taco for 1€ with chili con carne, chicken, chicken barbecue or with vegetables and they taste really nice for just 1€. I do not remember how much my friends and I ordered at this day but it was much and when the bartender asked if we want one last thing because the kitchen will close we ordered more tacos. So we were really in love with this cheap sins. The Fingerfood-Sampler was also really nice and my boyfriend and I fought for every piece with each other. I did not eat there for real yet but the starter and the finger food I tried were really good. It is always such a pleasure to eat and drinks there. BTW they also make cocktails to go! 😉
Now we come to the money part. If you live in Berlin and know how cheap you can get cocktails this bar has kind of expensive prices. Yes, you can find bars where you just pay 3,90 € for a cocktail but for me, it is important how bars make their cocktails. In Sausalitos I know they use good stuff and make alcohol inside. Some weeks ago I was in a bar and a cocktail was 4,50€ and after 3 cocktails I did not feel any effect from alcohol and the drinks did not taste so good. So it is your own choice if you would like to pay more and also get more or pay little and get little. For sure there are bars that have cheaper prices and good quality but I recommend this bar so much because it is my absolute favorite bar in Berlin right now. A normal cocktail cost around 7-8 € and a large one start from 10€. I always take the large one because I have the feeling that I get more for the money, but maybe it is just in my head. The food has a normal price range. You get a main dish for around 10€ and some snacks from 5€. I really can recommend the Fingerfood-Sampler for more people for two hungry people, because it was so delicious.
To be honest I like to pay for everything there and the people around me also. In the beginning, when some of my friends saw the prices they were like “oh okay…”, but after they got they things they were more than satisfied because they know cocktails for 4,50€ and the cocktails they get at Sausalitos. So one thing I can say: I will be there whenever I can!
And btw this Bar is just a few steps away from The Pearl Berlin! This is one of my favourite Clubs here in Berlin! Check The Pearl here!
