Burger Bars in Hamburg
Brooklyn Burger Bar
Hamburg’s locals love to meet for burgers at the Brooklyn Burger Bar, which is situated onsite a former pharmacy. Bare walls and beat-up furniture – the style of this burger bar could be described as “demolition chic”. Five standard burgers and a burger of the week are the main attractions on the menu. Another highlight is the cocktail card: the owners previously ran the former Streits Bar, so they know their craft well.

This burger bar in Winterhude is quite small and therefore somewhat confined; so it is recommended to take your burger with you, or come in the summer when the small terrace offers an additional dining area. Gourmets are drawn to Dulf's Cipriani burger with Wagyu beef, blue cheese and truffle mayonnaise. Classic burgers ranging from cheese to chicken are also on offer here, and of course Dulf’s home-made garlic, BBQ and truffle dips.
