    Pipehouse, Koblenz - lovely old building with lounge and very friendly and generous owners, my favorite cigar place in Germany
    LCDH Savoy, Berlin - great bar and cocktails, appalling cigar selection

    Herzog am Ludwigkirchplatz Berlin - cold german efficiency. Lovely pickled herring next door in the bar that allows smoking and much friendlier

    Herzog am Hafen, Berlin - stunning building, again cold german service
    About the "cold service". There are two things about service in Germany. It used to be absolutely crap but has changed tremendously over the last 20 years. You might still get the odd bad service, but what's usually perceived as 'cold' by brits is a cultural difference.

    Germans are more direct, which can come across as cold to a person living in a country where one appologises when another person drives their trolly into their heals.

    The upside to it is that you can take people at face value. If someone tells you they had a great time and you should meet again, they actually want to see you again and aren't just being polite.

    It takes some getting used to, but if you put it into cultural context you hopefully find it less irritating.
