#day364 – craft beer tasting

The area around Hackescher Markt isn’t my first choice, when it comes to going out for a drink on a Thursday night. Neither on another weekday actually. Bars are a bit too charmless there. But when there are friends around, who I haven’t seen for months I can deal with it, of course. And it […]

#day280 – happy hour hopping extreme

What to do when you’re on vacations and it’s raining the whole day? Well, I think it’s the permission to start drinking in the afternoon already. I don’t mean hardcore drinking. I mean having a little cocktail. Something to cheer you up. Rain season here in Montanita just started but the weather is nothing else […]

#day168 – Campari Orange bar tour

A bar in Palermo can be one of the fanciest, but their variety of cocktail’s is a tragedy. During my little bar hopping night in Palermo Soho, I went to three different bars and the variety of drinks was everywhere more or less the same. You can count on three types of cocktails: Fernet Cola, Cynar Pomelo […]

#day160 – buenavista mini brewery

What a hidden gem just in the next street over mine. A little stall, opened during the night only, where you can grab a craft beer to sip it on the street with your friends. Not a real bar, just a counter without seats and tables. A growler station. A place where you can have a craft beer […]

#day105 – searching a bar to rent

In search of a bar to rent for a little party, I walked three hours through Neukölln, Kreuzberg and Friedrichhain tonight. I did it the good old way. Going there and asking personally. The result: Most bars don’t have a room to rent out or don’t keep free the whole bar or at least parts of […]

#day81 – an old toilet wisdom in a new bar

Do you know what’s the best about shabby bars? The notes in the restroom. I love going to the toilet, when I visit a bar for the first time. There’re almost always inspiring quotes, funny claims or crazy stickers – at the wall and the hand dryer, in the mirror and on the toilet. Sometimes you […]

#day67 – Mitte’s best kept secret

Sometimes a friend from Munich has to come to Berlin to let you discover charming hidden places in your own city. Whereas my evening started really Mitte-fancy with a dinner at Yumcha Heroes. Highly recommended by many Berlin foodies and on my list since quite a while. Today I finally managed it to go there. Reservating […]

#day56 – a thuringian neighbourhood-beer

There’re three bars in my street. In two of three I’ve been at least once since I live there. The Bierquelle or the source of beer is a typical corner bar with darts, pool, slot machines, sky tv and old drunk men. The pub saved me last winter from death by cold with a hot wine. The Bilderpinte […]
