The buzz in Berlin never stops. We’re proud to present the latest issue of… Henrik’s World of Glamour!
West Berlin’s rise on the fine dining radar is unstoppable. Capital’s favorite chef Tim Raue opened the french brasserie Colette near Zoologischer Garten and it’s bound to blow your taste buds to heaven. The fine dining venue is located on the ground floor of a retirement home and funny enough, the opening event’s food mainly consisted of dishes that didn’t require a lot of chewing. We’re sure Colette will please wealthy seniors and culinary connaisseurs alike.
Olaf Heine – Do Not Disturb
Olaf Heine is best known for his impressive star portaits. The close bond the photographer creates with the likes of Rammstein, Iggy Pop, Snoop Dog, Max Herre and countless other stars shows on his unique pictures, a selection of which was on display at his vernissage at Berlin’s first music hotel nHow (rockstars are expected to leave their rooms demolished). The edgy showroom located right at the Spree is the perfect fit for anything artsy and THANKFULLY wasn’t overcrowded. Quality over quantity.
Platoon Kunsthalle was one of Berlin’s hottest pop up venues over the last years. Food, art, parties, workshops, discussions, chess boxing, exhibitions – you name it, it’s probably been to Platoon. But all good things come to an end and now Platoon is moving on. After coming to Berlin from Korea a few years back, they’re now making way for Mexico, where Platoon will spend the next couple of years. Their closing party was one for the legends – unfortunately our camera battery gave up the fight after the first hour.
Umami has opened a new outlet for their delicious Asian treats in West Berlin. The opening event on culinary stronghold Bergmannstraße was studded with celebs and fueled by an astonishing amount of Saigon Mules. The place was bursting at the seams and the influx of guests just wouldn’t stop. Usually the attendance rate for openings in Berlin is between 60% and 80%. Umami managed to achieve a casual 110%. We left shortly before all the air inside was used up.
Tiger of Sweden
Finally Tiger of Sweden is conquering Berlin! Their new store in Mitte boasts a calm and clean design on 120 sqm, where you’ll find both suits and Denim wear for men. We ate our way through some illegaly tasty Swedish finger food while listening to Hugo Capablanca’s music, who welcomed the Tiger to Berlin in style. Go Tigerrrrrrr!
