Area: Altstadt

It didn't take us long to find this delightful windowless den offering up perfectly mixed spirits, an intimate space that requires you to ring a bell before being granted access – if you are planning on going on a weekend, ring ahead and make a reservation as the space is small and when its full you’ll find yourself on the wrong side of the door.

Past the velvet curtain, Le Lion is split across two floors, downstairs feels a little like being in someone's lounge, only with a huge bar and a stunning lion as the centre piece. Sofas line the walls, big coffee tables are flanked by low slung chairs leaving you to sit back and enjoy the drinks.

Upstairs it gets more intimate still, with a long bar and a small upscale seating area that allows you to sit up close to your date. The cocktails are creative, the service is top notch and we are big fans of Dirk, the manager, who never fails to take care of us and has been known to give us a few insider tips to Hamburg.

This isn’t a night for watching the pennies, as the cocktails do lean towards the expensive its rare we don’t make it for at least one when we find ourselves in the city.
