What we see, what we do and who we meet: it usually happens right in our neighborhood. These little randoms make up most of our lives here in Berlin. With every little piece of the puzzle we hope to get closer to portraying an authentic picture of the city.
In a wonderful twist of events, Pannierstraße has not succumbed to the rising number of thirsty people who want edgy bars lining their streets. Fortunately, instead Pannierstraße has been overthrown by an explosion of special delis, bistros and restaurants, of which most aren’t even open at night. A culinary diversity, especially down Ecke Sonnenallee,
Lately I’ve come to terms with the fact that all my taxes are going into pointless and redundant bullshit events that nobody ever asked for. An unfinished airport that costs 17 Million Euro per MONTH (seriously, maybe make this a new refugee camp?), a wild World Cup public viewing party at Siegessäule for idiots who know nothing about
Update 5. July 2014: The give-away has ended but Columbiabad is still open! :) Summer is finally over! Wow, what a drag those hot days were, right? … Right? Anyway, now that the rain season has returned I feel a lot better. This is my comfort zone, my extraordinarily trist and grey sky, the unforeseeable humidity that keeps fucking
The Spanish football team seems to have had enough of the usual Tiki-Taka and decided to take an early break from the World Cup while the rest of us are just coming up to get the party started! So Tiki-Taka it is, and of course, where else would we be but at the gloriously decorated
Last Friday, the freshly opened YAAM was packed, sweaty and full of good vibes til the morning hours. If the legendary 2nd birthday of the amazing WEBOOGIE crew and the re-opening of YAAM was a taste for what’s to come this summer, we’re highly excited. There are no words to describe the feeling — from the first person
I’ve been living in Berlin for almost 7 years now and my parents have not once decided to visit me (they have actually physically been to Berlin, but never for the sole purpose of spending a holiday with me). They seem to like the comfort of their home too much to come around and spend a couple of
The 25th of May is the day were Berliners will be able to vote for or against building on the Tempelhofer Feld (along with the EU parliament, but that’s for another niche blog to cover). As you may know, we think this is a very rare chance of being part of Berlins future. Since most people who
Berlins rise in popularity and the steady growth of an international and very well fed community has nurtured a new culinary culture in the city. New restaurants, bars and concept eateries have been popping up all over the place and they’re not exclusively döner or burger joints for the budget foodies anymore. Nowhere as much as
Mayday mayhem: every year, the first of May is the dedicated kick-off of the legendary Berlin summer season. And what a kick-off it was: personally, I spent most of my time in a delirious state at the annual Luzia rave. But, lucky for me (and my partying), Martin roamed the streets and took plenty of beautiful pictures in
After a long break The Sammelkarten are back with their 7th edition. Get your package and start to collect and share these beautiful small berlin perspectives by Jan Herdlicka. Like his page and order a free set! If you are lucky, you can even find a print in there.
There is a proven cycle of city-hype and the formula goes something like this: The marginalized, the poor & cool artists take over a shitty and economically flawed neighborhood, transform it into a “creative hub”, establish bars, cafés, galleries and bring all their terrifyingly cool looking friends to the party. Then, after a while, the wealthy
The Luzia bar on Oranienstraße has always been a wet and wild place for parties, so without hesitation, we jumped on the chance to actually host our own night. Back in 2012 we started our A MILLION series with a tight crew and the intentions to get fucked up with our friends. No manners, no regularities, really bad
When I stepped out of my door last evening, a flying rock missed my face only by inches. I looked around the corner to see hooded Antifa rioting on Reichenberger Straße. At first I thought I had missed the 1st of May. I finally summed up the moxy to go and see what was happening and asked a passerby. “The Antifa is
I’d mentioned before how weird it is to feel spring creeping up. Nevertheless, it’s more fun than ever to snapshot the shit out of the city. The past month was very effective in terms of “dusty light” and cherry blossoms. So without further ado, here’s a perspective on our collective springtime blues that isn’t so blue-ish
