Guttentag. Touchdown in Berlin.
I’ve been to the city three times before – once for work, once for a work party and the last time just for party reasons.
Absolutely loved the city, the people, the history, it’s no wonder why I came back for a fourth time – even staying an extra day to make the opening of the Christmas markets.
Every time I travel to a city I like to crowdsource where I go. The best recommendations are from friends. Being here for five days, we have a lot of time to check every place out.
Our first day was packed with the hit list.
STAY: SOHO HOUSE BERLIN
We’re staying at Soho House Berlin which is absolutely stunning. In the Tiny room which surprisingly isn’t so tiny. Every little detail is accounted for – they even have little treats in a silver tin inside the cupboard (obviously only a Cookie Monster like me would find those).
The feels and approach to life is very different here. While having a drink in the bar before we ventured out, a lady from London said –‘Everyone from London talks about what house they want to buy, people from Berlin talk about what party they are going to.’ Pretty much sums it up.
THE STORE (http://www.thestores.com/berlin/)
This is Soho House’s first concept store. Its aimed to be a mix of art, furniture, food and people. Effectively a Store that is also a social space. Filled with unique designer pieces from Balenciaga, Vetements as well as scents, candles and everything a perfect coffee table would need.
VOO STORE (https://www.instagram.com/voostore/)
One of Caitlin’s Insta recommendations. This place has been transplanted from Shoreditch to Kreuzberg, Berlin. Coffee shop in store, hipster central, this place is the perfect stop for the gram. Also the closet if you can afford high end unique items. Had my eye on an Acne Shearling Coat and APC wool coat – to die for.
