From the 26th of December, our partners will be operating our coffee shop & bar, Commonground, in the Circus Hotel.

Bringing together specialty coffee, vibrant food and craft cocktails, Commonground is a place where you can come an enjoy some exciting food and crafted drinks at any time of the day. Commonground is a place which strongly focuses on quality and where the chef, bartender or barista truly believes in the product they are making and serving.

For our hotel guests, Commonground serves an exclusive breakfast from 7.30am – 4pm. The breakfast costs 12 euros and includes;

  • Organic Sironi croissants or small granola with organic yogurt
  • Two organic eggs (poached or scrambled) on sourdough toast or avocado on sourdough toast with hummus
  • 150 ml serving Kombucha or 150 ml serving organic juice
  • Fjord filter coffee or Companion tea (1€ extra for espresso style coffee)

Brunch & Coffee

Chef, Sean Duff, has put together a seasonal brunch menu which is out of the ordinary. This menu centres upon quality ingredients from local producers such as organic eggs from local farm Eiland Grimme or sourdough bread baked by Kreuzberg’s Sironi. The menu provides either a fantastic lunch or breakfast items until 16:00 daily.

Commonground’s coffee programme uses coffee from local coffee roaster, Fjord Coffee Roasters. Lightly roasted, specialty-grade coffee that far exceeds the economic support of Fair Trade coffee is used at Commonground, giving the farmer of the coffee not only a ‘better deal’ but also a chance to represent their work in creating a fantastic high quality product.

Tapas & Cocktails

In the evening, Commonground transforms into a craft cocktail bar headed by Yvonne Rahm & Damien Guichard. Find a small but articulate seasonal menu of drinks, as well as classics – with many bitters, syrups and liqueurs made in-house. Expertly made drinks are complimented by a range of approachable craft beers and natural wines.

Commonground’s tapas menu is designed to excite by taking something simple and making it far exceed your expectations. Enjoy it either as something to nibble on with a drink or take a few items to become a light dinner. Deliciousness awaits.


As we don’t like to stand still, the Circus has been busy the last couple of months. We re-designed our whole ground floor area, creating more space for our guests to hang, relax, have a drink, enjoy one of the best coffees in Berlin and…explore the city like a pro!

With more space to meet guests and Berliners alike, we also put together a new concept to introduce our favourite city to you: Berlin behind the Curtain!

Find out all about our thoughtfully curated programme here.

From street food to art galleries and from performances to the film industry, we want to take you behind the scenes, to open doors that would otherwise be closed… to give you a peek behind the curtain!
