What was it that Goethe said? “But no enjoyment can be transitory; the impression which it leaves is permanent…” the impressions that VODKARIA leaves behind are purely positive! In this bar you do not just drink any old vodka. Here you have the agony of choosing between many exquisite sorts from all over the world, one tastier than the next and then there are the really good homemade waters. You should also try the cocktail creations mixed with love. But if you want to drink a lot, you need a good foundation. It’s a good thing that the food is also a real treat for the palate. From “Strammer Salmon” to fennel pasta and rump steak – there is something for every appetite.

Are you looking for a location that has a restaurant, cocktail bar and music venue all under one roof? Then come spend an evening at Oskar. The house speciality is meat from an original Southern Pride Smoker: Pulled pork, brisket, pastrami, ribs and much more are freshly smoked and prepared by the creative Oskar-Crew. Through the half-open kitchen you can easily see how they prepare specialities from Mexican, vegetarian or German cuisines. But what will catch your eye first when you enter Oskar is the cocktail bar, which features selected Art Deco elements. Experienced barkeepers create seasonally changing cocktails and long drinks, serve regional beer specialities and know the right wine for every situation. The salon is Oskar’s cultural area. This is where amorous piano evenings, lively jazz concerts or electronically accompanied dancing take place. The salon is also a place for smokers. In extravagant armchairs from the former Palace of the Republic, you can blow smoke into the glow of glamorous chandeliers from the 1970s and leave everyday life behind. If at the end of a boisterous evening the way home is too challenging, you are welcome to stay in one of the guest rooms.

Sie liebt die Kombination aus der quirligen Stadt und der abwechslungsreichen Region. Jenseits des Büros sind sowohl Wander- als auch Badeschuhe ihr liebstes Schuhwerk und damit geht es dann durch die Heide, auf die Burg und natürlich auf und in den See. Davor, dazwischen und danach testet sie Cafés, Restaurants und Bars. Daher vielleicht auch der Spitzname „Kuchen-Konni“ ; )
