‘Standige Vertretung’ was established in 1997 by two innkeepers from Bonn. That city had served as capital of West Germany before reunification and still hosts plenty of federal political institutions. The pub was strategically located near the Berlin Friedrichstrasse railway station, which serves westward trains. Its name, meaning ‘Permanent Mission’ alludes to the de facto embassies that the two parts of Germany maintained during the post-war split. The current owners have been running the pub since 2017.
