There are some fantastic, wildly unusual and overwhelmingly creative spaces and places in Berlin. Whether it’s a restaurant or a secret hideout for a romantic picknick, we love strolling around our little Metropolis to find fresh places with an exciting story.

What happened to hav­ing a favor­ite bar to always come back to? While a lot of TV shows like How I Met Your Mother* still advert­ise this second liv­ing room to meet your friends at whenever you want to, none of my friends seem to have a “Stam­mkneipe” any­more. Maybe Ber­lin simply has too many dif­fer­ent pubs and

On our Sunday binge-eating trip (which I already told you about when I intro­duced you to the amaz­ing Gyozas at YuMe), we decided to snack our way through Neuk­ölln. Our next stop on the list was sup­posed to be City Chicken (a very human crav­ing some­times), but when we stood in front of the store we were sud­denly

Among my circle of friends, nobody can stop talk­ing about the cur­rent Ber­lin food craze. “Bur­ger is the Berg­hain”, for we used to spend our Sunday after­noons in a dark Techno club. Today, we go binge-eating in dif­fer­ent places in Kreuzberg and Neuk­ölln because there are a gazil­lion new res­taur­ants, diners and snack bars that we haven’t

Is any­one keep­ing count with the food events this week? I know there’s a bar con­ven­tion (“really?”) and the Ber­lin Food Week and sev­eral mar­kets and the respect­ive after-partys. If you know me, you know that I’m dis­gust­ing and glut­ton­ous and would never pass a chance on free (or not) food, but I com­pletely lost my shit try­ing to make sense

Note: I don’t like tak­ing pic­tures of food. I suck at it. Whenever I’m in a res­taur­ant and I have to doc­u­ment my visit, I am the unhap­pi­est per­son in the world. First of all: I hate wait­ing to eat. I am hungry 100% of the time and I have a strong, no com­prom­ise stance on hun­ger. Second of all, every­body in the place

Ber­lins culin­ary ver­sat­il­ity is grow­ing. You can see new (concept) res­taur­ants and pop up bars appear on every corner. There are many who com­plain about the so-called demise of Ber­lins under­ground vibe. But if you’ve been eat­ing out in this city long enough, you’ll surely appre­ci­ate the rising num­ber of decent res­taur­ants. Ber­lin has become

Whenever I find myself over­whelmed by the flurry of busy street life, excited party crowds and tour­ist masses washed up on my front door, I like to get out of Kreuzberg and Mitte for a while, not to travel far away, but to seek solitude within the city boundaries. Berlin’s calmer parts feel as much home to me as my cent­ral

As every con­nois­seur will know, food and the fine arts go hand and hand. While every­body went to the open­ing of the 2014 Ber­lin Art Week, I dug deep into Per­uvian cul­ture at the OnBooze x Haw-Lin Ceviche Bar on Tor­straße. Like in the past years, juicy Per­uvian fish and sour drinks await art fiends for a week. Like Israeli

Good cafés — places that serve really good barista cof­fee, that is — are now found as far down south as Her­mannstraße. The newly opened GORDON has brought a per­fect Cap­pu­cino to the Kiez, but that’s not why I liked it when I passed by. The Israeli import is a fusion of café and record store that brings a new light to an oth­er­wise very

Urgh, Ber­lin Fest­ival. It’s one of those events where all people go “uhh­h­h­h­h­h­h­hhh yeah, I’ve got like, super-free tickets, so I’m going for a minute or two even though it’s like, super-shitty”. Ahahahaha. I love that. Then again, that’s what people in Ber­lin usu­ally say about any big name party, so I tried to detach myself from the pre­ju­dice and enjoy my
