12 Broad St.

This brick building was originally built as a garage for horse and carriage in 1910. It was converted to a theater for showing "silent flickers" in 1917. A new facade was added to replicate the Spanish Mission Style architecture common to movie theatres in Hollywood. It prospered as Berlin's movie house and only entertainment venue for 50 years.

After the turbulent 60's it went dark for a 20 year intermission until the Patton family breathed new life into it. The historic bones of the building were revitalized and preserved and it was re-purposed as a bistro, wine/gift/book shop, art gallery and cultural center. With this incarnation new life was also given to Berlin.

Two local couples took over the reins in 2006. A copper top bar and new outfitted kitchen were added quickly making it the place to find the best food in town and the most popular gathering spot.

Now sole proprietor Jennifer Dawicki is carrying on the tradition of The Globe and it remains true to the character of being the heart of Berlin. Great food and drinks, famous brunches, live music, special events and friendly people are sure to please.
