The former Postcafé is now the home of the KIM Bar on Berlin's gallery strip on Mitte's Brunnenstraße. It may be small in size and quite inconspicuous but it makes up for all that with its great atmospere. About every gallery in the neighbourhood has already hosted a party in the KIM Bar. The bar is the meeting point of the young Berlin arts scene to discuss new projects, debate about the latest exhibitions and party to electro music.
The bar's interior looks very much like a gallery itself, it's minimalistic looks are deliberate with metal tubes, a naked concrete floor, pale grey walls with a bit of light wood and neon lighting. The furniture is for the greater part made of wood here. The comb-like structure on the ceiling is one of the really few decorative elements in this bar. In the evening, the KIM Bar fills up quickly with people and once the DJs spin the decks, things get loud. The young in-crowd warms up here before going out, gallery owners hold deep conversations and hipster groups are dotted around the room.
The card of the KIM Bar is not big, it features some classics like a Whiskey Sour or a Moscow Mule. The musical programme at the bar is a mix of live acts and DJ sets. Monthly private viewings and the coolness of Berlin-Mitte are benchmarks of the hipster nightlife. Supposedly, there's a weekly meeting of artists in a back room on the first floor of the KIM Bar to play cards.
