C\V Corvera Vargas

Set up as a showroom in the heart of Neukölln by very talented Bolivian designer Maria Corvera Vargas, C\V Studio Berlin stocks her beautiful garments, which with their attractive cuts & simple patterns are not only truly sophisticated, but are made with a high ethical ethos; using high-quality leftover fabrics from iconic brands or Fair Trade wool from Bolivia. We’ve sent a few questions to designer and owner Maria Corvera Vargas to find out more about her vision of creating gorgeous, ethical fashion in limited numbers…

Geist im Glas

It’s not often a dimly-lit bar can also become super-popular for weekend brunches too, but that’s exactly what Geist Im Glas have achieved – with a cult following swarming on them to devour the huevos rancheros and the fluffiest pancakes in town, all washed down with Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s and other morning drinks. We popped a few questions to British owner Aishah Bennett to learn about how she managed to pull off this winning combo.

Maison Han

We’re big fans of Bahn Mi sandwiches: a delicious Vietnamese baguette featuring a delicate meat, pickled carrots, cucumber, coriander and pate, and no-one makes them better in Berlin than Maison Han! We caught up with restaurant-entrepreneur owner Ngoc Duc Nguyen who is also behind successful ventures Royals & Rice, Han Coffee Roasters, Sons Of Mana and other businesses to find out more about the place.

Sala da Mangiare

You might have figured out by now that we are huge Italian food fans, and always on the search for the best Italian restaurants in Berlin when we stumbled across Sala da Mangiare in Neukölln and tried their incredible authentic Emilia-Romagna style handmade pasta, our heart skipped a beat. We popped a few questions over to Italian owner Mauro Paglialonga to find out more about his passion for cooking, his choice of ingredients and how pasta differs from region to region in Italy… Read more

Barettino

Always a great choice for a killer sandwich or brunch plate full of high-quality Italian produce, Barettino is an awesome spot located in Neukölln, just off the always-interesting Weserstrasse. Ideal for an afternoon Spritz or dinner as well, we decided to send a few questions to the owners Djamila and Maria to share a little more with you…

Comedy Cafe Berlin

Unlike in London or New York, good stand-up comedy is quite a rarity to be found in Berlin. Thankfully, for those who are after an authentic, genuine small-theatre experience the Comedy Café Berlin in Neukölln, not only has that low-key, friendly atmosphere you just can’t get in big venues but offer a selection of shows in German & English which make them attractive for expats too. Set up by comedian Noah Telson and siblings Nina & Dino Spiri in 2015, the venue doesn’t focus solely on stand-up, but hosts improv shows & comedy workshops too… and even dubs Tatort into English! We caught up with Noah to find out how the venue came to be and what we can expect from the place this year…

Amore

Being huge fans of Italy we naturally fell right in love with the Amore store and friendly owner Kerstin Finger, who carefully sources Italian products with exceptional branding & packaging design. Focusing mostly on food produce in the first room, her second room features eccentric umbrellas, quirky beach towels and wonderful tableware. What we adore about the Amore Store is how each of the food products from retro boxed salt & colourful tinned tomatoes to eye-catching pastas & Panettone boxes look soooooo pretty in their packaging, that they’re worth buying if only just to decorate your kitchen with if not to actually enjoy eating! Of course, we had a few questions to learn more! Read more

SHIO

Located just off Sonnenallee & Weserstrasse, SHIO may seem like another Neukölln fashion shop from the outside… but investigate & venture inside and you’ll discover exactly why this space is so unique. Most of the incredible clothes hung here have actually been creatively upcycled from unwanted garments into stylish and modern designs – which you would likely never guess if you didn’t know!  Run by very talented Australian seamstress Kate Pinkstone alongside three other designers (who showcase their excellent jewellery & objects, streetwear and Japanese stationary there too), this place is really rather special, and being big fans we wanted to discover a little more …

Bichou

As soon as we walked into newly opened, French daytime-bistro Bichou we knew it was love at first sight! Once warmly greeted by passionate friendly owner-couple Marion Coulondre & Thomas Giese, your eyes can’t help but gaze around at the sheer simplistic beauty of the small foodie-haven they’ve created, where they offer a brilliantly-concise menu, with just one hot dish changing weekly – a sign of quality, freshness and making it truly perfect. As for the food, you can always find one of the best quiches of your life, incredible Tarte Tatin, excellent homemade jams and freshly baked breakfast Brioche buns amongst other delights. We sent a few questions to the experienced duo to find out more about the way they work…
