Tomorrow the Circus Hostel will be reopening after some weeks of renovation that have included a new re-design of the former café and bar on the ground floor and basement of the building, that will also open as the new Katz & Maus Café Bar. With the change of the name there will be also a change of concept, with new food and drink offers on the ground floor level, whilst down in the basement lounge guests will find their “living room” in the hostel, complete with tap beer and a carefully selected collection of events and activities.
So what’s new? Food and Drink at Katz & Maus
Katz & Maus will open each morning at 8am and will be where you can grab the legendary All-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, as well as some smaller options. As always, breakfast runs to the highly civilized time of 1pm, and from 2pm our new warm food menu kicks into action. We designed our menu with the desire to reflect both Berlin’s culinary traditions but also some of the current trends, and we found our purveyors at local markets and street food events.
So you can look forward to the Katz & Maus Twisted German Burger, from our friends at Berlin Beef Balls, traditional German potato soup supplied by our good pal Barbara, plus sausages, salads, sandwiches and – of course – Abendbrot. “Evening Bread” is the literal translation, and our Abendbrot for two will bring to your table bread baked daily in-house with a platter of cold cuts and cheese.
As well as our new food offer we have also worked on our drinks – so as well as cool beers and ciders we have various long and short drinks, and some special Berlin schnapps to help your digestion. And down in the lounge, we have also increased our range of tap beers as well…
Fun & Games down in the Lounge
The ground floor of Katz & Maus will be open daily from 8am until late in the evening, whilst downstairs in the Lounge is where we gather for fun and games. Join after the excesses of the weekend for our Sunday Social, featuring trivia nights, movie screenings or acoustic live music. We also will be showing the best of the Champions League and the World Cup on the big screen, give you the chance to glory in German beer as part of our regular Drink around Germany events, as well as the opportunity to better yourself in our Back to School specials – including German lessons and Cocktail schools.
