Berlin has the fantastic reputation of a multicultural melting pot that is brimming with plentiful international influences in every area of life, from arts and culture to food and drinks. And while we remain grateful to live in a place where authentic alcoholic beverages from all corners of the world are readily available, we’re excited for the “Day of the Open Wine” – a unique occasion to dig into – or maybe rather drain up – a topic that we all might have previously slightly neglected, namely: German wines!

The “Day of the Open Wine” (Tag des offenen Weins) is part of the nationwide event “WeinEntdecker-Wochen” and is coming to Berlin for the very first time on the 22nd of September from 14:00 to 18:00. It’s a real treat for all the wine lovers out there – just for 5 EUR, you’ll be able to discover three different German wines. Over 30 wine shops all over town are participating – and below, you’ll find our curated guide to 6 of them. Call up your buddies and take a relaxing afternoon stroll through Berlin – with such delightful stops along the way, who knows where you might end up?

Berlin’s Coolest Stores for Sunglasses & Eyewear

Mykita

Nobody wants to need them but everybody likes to wear them. Glasses are possibly the most iconic accessory we can wear because eyes are everything. They can be seductive, inquisitive, friendly, stunning, hypnotic, and as they say, they are the mirrors of the soul. In fashion and film history glasses have been the protagonists of hundreds of emblematic shots. Nowadays glasses can be just another fashion accessory or essential pieces of art that represent our personalities.  It’s no wonder that choosing the right piece to frame your eyes is not an easy task. To help you find those amazing glasses that fit you like a glove we have gathered brands that create the most stunning design glasses in Berlin.

A Declaration of Love to Garbicz Festival

photo: Ole Ukena

For the past three years, my friend Anahita kept doting about Garbicz Festival. She kept telling me about its magical atmosphere, the friendly and open-hearted people, the heartfelt and detailed Katerblau-like decoration and colorfully dressed people. So, after all the gushing, this turned out to be her third year of Garbicz and, eventually, I called it my first!

The Garbicz Festival exists for 5 years now and is a communal project brought to life by the party creators Bachstelzen and Katerblau/Holzmarkt. These guys joined forces and bought the serene nature reserve bordering at the small village called Garbicz in Poland, where each year, the Festival is brought to life and in the end is taken down almost completely again. The area is an absolute gift to the festival, with a big lake to swim in or chill at and lots of trees, to camp in the shadows, protected by rain. The talented photographer Ole Ukena kept his camera close during those exciting 5 days, to distinctively capture the vibe of Garbicz Festival for you.

Berlin Bars that Keep on Rocking

photos: Amanda Artiaga

I once described Berlin as an apotheosis of the proverbial sex, drugs, and… well, mostly techno. As a self-confessed Elvis worshipper, I find that last characteristic slightly regrettable. Personally, I try to do my share in maintaining Berlin’s legacy as the erstwhile home to Iggy, Bowie, and Nick Cave – but even cranky me can’t constantly live in the past and/or Johnny Cash lyrics. Saddened by the recent demise of the Bassy Club, we decided to put together a list of joints that still spice up the nightlife with some rock’n’roll spirit, be it punk rock, new wave, post-punk, blues, or whatever else to float your barman’s boat.
