About the bar

Cozy ambiance in a "New York style"-setting

Upon entering The Hideaway, visitors are welcomed by a cozy ambiance featuring a dark green color scheme, a brick wall, and retro bulbs casting a warm glow, creating a slight “New York style”-vibe. The minimalistic decor allows visitors to focus on the main attraction—the well-crafted cocktails. Jazz music playing softly in the background complements the overall relaxed vibe.

While the front room is relatively well furnished, the backroom definitely lacks the attention to detail, with almost no décor and furnished with tables and chair that could be found in a cheap pizzeria – So if there is room, stay in the front.

One of the best bars in Düsseldorf

The Hideaway establishes itself as one of the best bars in Düsseldorf through an unwavering commitment to attention to detail. The bar meticulously selects beautiful crystal glassware that enhances the visual presentation of each cocktail. The use of clear, hand-cut ice cubes further underlines their commitment to the craft. Moreover, The Hideaway distinguishes itself by utilizing advanced mixology techniques, such as clarification, showcasing a willingness to explore innovative methods that elevate the flavors and textures of their cocktails to new heights.

Parmigiano Sour

A Savory Sour

For a unique twist, The Hideaway's Parmigiano Sour presents a savory variation of the classic Pisco Sour. The Parmigiano garnish introduces an interesting aroma, creating a well-balanced blend of sour and sweet. Sherry adds a slight nuttiness, harmonizing the flavors for a distinctive taste.

While we appreciate the idea and creativeness that this cocktail showcases, we found the Parmigiano to be a bit misplaced in this specific cocktail.


Chocolate, Cream and Berries

The Pistaberry cocktail is a creamy concoction. With berry flavors and a mild chocolate taste, this cocktail offers a rich and satisfying experience. The balance of nuttiness and the presence of raspberry make it a delightful choice if you have a sweet tooth.
