Sure you can find good beer and wine in Germany, but equally as important as what you're drinking is where you're drinking it. Today's Dramatic Design will make traditional pubs a little jealous.

Located in Hamburg City, the Mövenpick Hotel Hamburg is built into a former water tower, and is one of the trendier hotels in Germany's Sternschanzenpark area. The hotel has 226 rooms, 13 conference and meeting rooms, a fitness center and serene sauna area, but it's the hotel's Lifestyle Bar "Cave" that grabs the attention of tourists and locals.

The Cave Bar is located in the historical vaults of the old tower and flanked with German red bricks. Whether you choose to relax with a glass of wine, enjoy a German brew, or let one of the bartenders create a crafty cocktail for you, the ambiance of the Cave will suck you in.

The hotel did a fantastic job of bringing a modern feel to its historical roots. The bar glows an iridescent white light that matches the cocktail tables throughout the bar.
