“This is good. Even though the cocktail list at Central Congress is filled with potent liquor-heavies that could make any loudmouthed Texan oil baron fall of his chair, there are not many traces of vainglory or male-chauvinism to be seen. Gone are all those self-appointed scientists measuring whiskey as if they have discovered a liquid cure against self-deception. Absent are as well those tragic symptoms of inferiority who in their backslick and bowties believe they can squeeze the socio-hierarchical gap towards some of their more well-off customers by being rude to other mortals and by placing themselves in a ferocious and almost pervert state of cocktail overshake. Instead, there is just a casual German dude doing just what he is supposed to, that is being very casually German. It is a pleasant scenario as this often involves a rather frosty attitude towards elitist manners but a quirky fascination for the accurate detail. It is enough nerdy to be good but sufficiently carefree to not invite severe sentiments of loath. All in all a likeable trait.” It is finally bar number 36 out of 1000: Central Congress in Hamburg.
