After a very long and exciting day in Neukölln, one of our last stops was supposed to be the Klunkerkranich, one of the top trending bars in Berlin. The bar is located on deck five,the roof of the parking deck of the Neukölln Arcades.
We now reach almost the end of our Neukölln Tour, and this post wasn’t planned actually. But I spoke to someone from New Yorck recommending Neukölln and got the answer – „no, I don’t want to go to ugly places.“
Von Michael Hetzinger – Meine „Da will ich hin“-Restaurant-Liste wurde in den letzten Jahren länger und länger. Schuld daran: Neukölln. Keine Frage also, dass ich mich begeistert der Neukölln-Tour von about curiosity anschließe.
If you’d ask me to name just one single trend in interior, it would be succulents. They are everywhere. So the beautiful macrame designs by Dörthe Bundt from California Dreaming are what we need to show them. Bringing back traditional craft techniques is another big and beautiful trend in home and interior. I love the macrame hanger, they are an unusual and elegant way to show plants in interiors.
To me, it seemed that place is a three room, one kitchen collaborative idea creating manufactory. I read about The Future Breakfast and Wildflowers Berlin placed at the Rag and Bone Man Café and Vintage Store, but the place is so much more.
What to drink if you are cool and hip? Well, easy during the daytime – third wave coffee and smoothies / juices (everything green and chia and Baobab). But when it comes to alcohol it’s getting difficult. Wine is too establishment, cocktails old fashioned, regular beer a bit working class.
Michael Hetzinger put „Gotcilla – Japanes BBQ Food“ in our „Places to go in Neukölln“ Board on Trello. Secretly I tried to make up routes away from a place serving deep fried food. It sounds grass, greasy, and oily.
Chrome Store Berlin is not a second-hand shop. Chrome Store Berlin is a store where you find a finest selection of rare designer vintage clothes.
If you love Vintage, then you will love Ekstase 51! It is the right mix between „Trödel“ and Vintage. A bit of everything but mainly Lamps and Furniture.
Huettenpalast is a childhood dream come true. Who wouldn’t want to stay in a caravan or cabin? Every girl and boy (and that is what we still are, no matter how we might look on the outside) dreams of an adventure. And why not have the adventure in a big City?
Oye Record Shop is as the name might make you guess a music store. And my knowledge about vinyls is even more reduced than my knowledge about Sneakers, but I liked the look of the shop and the super relaxed atmosphere.
I went into Nice – Urban Footwear because I temporarily lost Nicholas and Michael on our Neukölln tour. I loved the black and white sketching on the front and inside, but didn’t know what the shop was about. It’s all about Sneakers. This shop is heaven for everybody loving Sneakers.
