A new listening bar called Bar Neiro is scheduled to open in Berlin on April 6.

Inspired by the ‘jazz kissas’ of Japan, it offers a custom built “vintage high-fidelity soundsystem and acoustically-designed interior” designed by recording engineer Erik Breuer, and all music soundtracking the space will be vinyl LPs played from front to back.

In-house designed cocktails taking inspiration from Japanese bar culture will also be served, alongside a wine and spirits selection.

Bar Neiro is a venture from the Analogue Foundation, a collective enterprise that values analogue experiences.

Speaking to RA, Breuer said: “The ethos of analogue is one of craft, attention, care and beauty–we’re looking forward to hosting guest selectors and bar patrons who enjoy this ethos as much as we do.”

Bar Neiro is located on Ohmstraße in Mitte, and will be a sister space to the hereby Brewery Studios.
