Henrik’s World of Glamour

When there’s glamour, the next Berlinagent isn’t far.

Henrik’s B-day Bash

When Henrik invites his closest friends and partners to his birthday party, don’t expect less than 100 colourfully clothed people. Two seperate doormen guarded the separee in Mitte’s new trendy Sharlie Cheen Bar, the designated location for the festivities. What happened behind the curtains was nothing the public would have digested without asking funny questions like “is that guy wearing penisses as shoes” or  “did I just see Gloria Viagra spanking Henrik with a steel whip?”. The answers to those questions are rather simple: Yes. And Yes. Somewhere between a stack of champagne bottles and a borat bikini, we celebrated Henrik’s big birthday bash until the early morning. Long live Berlinagenten!

Sash & Fritz

Germany’s next premium vodka is here! The vodka-lovers from Sash & Fritz have now claimed that title, and rightfully so. The brand has been on the market since August and is already selling world wide. Takers from around the globe are eager to get a taste of the new German high-end product – mindfully created in months of trial and error, until the perfect taste had finally been found. We imagine this was a pretty entertaining job! We’ve been to the exclusive tasting at The Grand Restaurant Berlin and what can we say – it was delicious. After “tasting” 3 or 4 shots and the perfectly justitied serving of caviar, we were more than convinced this product will take over the vodka world in no time. If you can get your hands on one the rare bottles by chance – don’t hesitate!

Madonna’s Secret Berlin Party

Madonna is known to be a real Berlin lover. Whenever she’s in the Capitol of cool, she stays as long as possible and gets her party game on. Since the gods were on our side, we were hanging at Soho House at just the moment that Madonna decided to come in and throw a big fat party. In the blink of an eye a DJ booth was positioned at one end of the room and 50 trendy looking people walked in, giving the whole scenery the feeling of a MTV music video within minutes. Golden jackets, Geyshas, 80s dresses, teddy bear costumes – you got it, count us in. We danced with Madonna, Rita Ora and Hillary Swank until 5 in the morning. Got to love Berlin. Unfortunately Madonna’s security guards are stricter than Berghain – we weren’t allowed to take any pictures…

11 Years Weekend

Fore more than a decade now, the House of Weekend has been majestically sitting above Berlin’s roof tops, offering the undisputed best view over the city. Their 11-year jubilee saw all the hipsters, fashionistas and party goers unite on the 15th floor – they even opened a brand new floor that night, dedicated to friends, partners and everyone who got their hands on one of the sought-after golden VIP wrist bands. The club has become more stylish over the years, and it was no miracle that more than a couple of champagne bottles were spotted in the new VIP area (unusual for a techno club!). DJ legend Tiefschwarz made sure the crowd wouldn’t stop dancing until the place closed down, just like in the old days. Thanks Weekend, we’ll be back!

Hustla Ball

When you hustle and bustle through a room filled with leather costumes, naked upper bodies and occasionally see easily identifiable body parts swinging to the beat, you’re right in the middle of Berlin’s gay party scene. With the start of the Venus Erotic Convention, the traditional Hustla Ball takes place at KitKat Club. Actors, directors and VIPs from the homosexual porn scene all come to Berlin to get one of the wildest and most permissive parties of the year going. Naturally we were right in the middle of it. We even shook… hands with this year’s best actor – Logan Moore.

X-Mas Party Adlon

You can’t say no when one of the most prestigious Hotels in Berlin invites you to their Christmas party! Surrounded by VIP guests from the hospitality industry, we found ourselves in the middle of a winter wonder land. After designing our own cookies with sugar colors and enjoying a remarkable quantity and quality of mulled wine, the Christmas mood quickly kicked in. Next to chocolate fountains and crèpes, even star chef Tim Raue’s restaurant Sra Bua was lined up to serve some tasty Asian delicacies. Can’t say it any different: we were pampered! Merry Christmas!

Red Carpet – Henriks World Unplugged

We’re famous, we’re famous! Finally we’ve joined ranks with Hanno Kofler, Will Smith and the Power Rangers. Yes, you guessed correctly. We were on Pay TV! (for autograph cards please contact the office).

The renowned programme Spiegel TV Wissen shot an episode dedicated to Berlin’s flourishing clubbing scene. Guess whom they chose to be their star for the night? That’s right. Our one and only Henrik DiCaprio, Emperor of red carpets and Defier of booze curfews.

Film crews are’t the most popular guests in the clubbing scene. Few people apart from us enjoy seeing their faces on YouTube looking totally hammered, and understandably so – most people just don’t have the face for it. But give Henrik 5 minutes and a cell phone and club doors swing open faster than a Primark door on Summer Sale. The film crew couldn’t believe their luck.

And it wouldn’t run out, either: our nightlife tour set new standards. There was everything from enjoying the sunset with drinks and laughs high above Berlin’s rooftops to dressing up as sexy dancers in an edgy Burlesque wonderworld called Prinzipal Kreuzberg. We got some scandalous looks from the Burlesque dancers when we took the film team into the dressing room, but who cares! Before completely dancing our socks off at the Pearl, we served a refreshment that made the film crew drool over their equipment. Currywurst and champagne – the style of West Berlin.

By now both guests and film crew had realized what we do is far from your usual pub crawl. We took both guests and camera team to a world they hadn’t even dreamt of before. Berlin’s nightlife, 100% unplugged. Check out the full video here.

Barca Avenue Night

You don’t win the Champions League in Berlin every day, but if you do, you better get ready for the craziest night of your life. And there’s no better club to pop champagne bottles in than in our second living room, the trendy Avenue club! We always get in, no matter the party, hence we feel obliged to present to you this rare exclusive footage of the night of the champions. With guests like Shakira, Dirk Nowitzki and of course the whole Barca crew the atmosphere was completely off the hook. But see for yourself!

5 Years Volt

Food porn! Food porn, everyone! Restaurant Volt has been a real heavy weight on Berlin’s culinary radar for quite some time now, so the invitation for their 5th anniversary almost made us wet our pants with excitement. A premium selection of Berlin’s finest chefs served an immensely satisfying range of tasty snacks, cheese and how else could it be – booze. Champagne upon arrival? Why not, it’s 1pm already! Another one? Yessir! We were especially impressed with Christoph Hauser from Herz&Niere, who served tartar of duck heart with wild cherries, marjoram and mustard seeds. So good. Hungry yet? Have a look at the pictures and you’ll wish you were a Berlinagent yourself.

Thaos Lindner’s Euphoria

“Euphoria. Suspense. Extasy. Excitement. Frenzy. Fever. Excess. Fire. Ember. Courage.” Let me think… uhm, yep, this must refer to us. Why else would an other worldly creature wearing close to nothing but a reflecting mask pick us from all the audience and give us a card with these words on it? The Trust Bar in Mitte set a dark yet atmospheric mood for the extraordinaire launch event for Thaos Lindner‘s latest collection “Euphoria” – definitely one of the hottest fashion week events. The models took a remarkable liking to us, handing us not one but four of the much coveted cards of wisdom as they went down the catwalk. The envious fashionistas sitting next to us wouldn’t get over it – why did Berlinagenten get all the attention? After less than an hour the strangely satisfying show was over and we got a little tipsy, before taking the trip back to reality.

Amerano Fashion Summer Night

Flashy club nights with hot chicks and overpriced booze are your favourite thing? Welcome to the First Upper West Club. Once a sleazy afterhour bar, the club has been completely remade and with flashy 360° surround LEDs now looks like a wet partying dream. Amerano, known for making awesome-but-pricy tailor-made suits, was the perfect candidate to hold their fashion week party at Upper West Club. Since Berlinagenten won’t be forced into roles, we came their looking casual cool as usual, opposed to the fancy-schmancys who nervously eyed us from the corner. What can we say? We rocked it.

La Soupe Populaire

On Tour: Urban Insiders

Our costumers from a famous swedish law firm – the market leader in providing marriage settlements and testaments – could count themselves lucky: their bosses appreciated their hard work over the past year by not only hooking them up with a 4-day incentive trip to Berlin, they also made sure their employees would get nothing but the best by choosing Berlinagenten to be their host.

The very first stop of the tour was one for all the meat lovers out there: a traditional Berlin Currywurst (we have the best Currywurst in Germany and don’t let anyone from Hamburg tell you otherwise!). Before being transferred to the stylish design hotel Amano the group had the chance to see one of the most famous avenues in Berlin: The Kurfürstendamm. A boulevard providing more famous shops, hotels, retaurants and fashion designers than any other street in Berlin, buzzing with life all around the clock.

Berlinagenten never disappoints their clients when it comes to finding the best eateries in town. First night kicked off with a al fresco dinner in an imposing formerbread factory on the River Spree. Following evening we made it possible to get a table at Tim Raue’s La Soupe populaire, which boasts a post industrial space with art exhibitions in the dinner area. Save the best for the last, the culinary highlight was no less than the Gastro-Rallye Deluxe, a tour where we take our guests to three trendy gourmet restaurants, one dish being served at each stop. If a farmer prepares the pig to get fat before Christmas, we definitely prepare our guests to roll back home!

Now before you get the impression that the whole tour consisted of eating and drinking (which might not even be such a bad thing, either) let’s talk about small cage-like cars with fumes so lovely, you’ll never want to smell another thing again. Or even be able to. The Trabbi! Fabricated in the GDR this car was roaming the streets in eastern Germany for decades and has nowadays become a nostalgia symbol. Berlinagenten booked Trabbis for the whole group and took a 2-hours „wild east“ route with an english speaking guide, providing an exclusive insight into Berlin history for our customers. At this point I think it’s only fair to say that those oldtimer Trabbis can be tricky little beasts: One of the Trabants had some issues with it’s exhaust gases (they were partly INSIDE the car, cough cough) and made for a nasty but surely unforgettable memory for the occupants. 

For the wild nights out Henrik took the group to the re-opened House of Weekend, the Avenue Club in the historic Café Moskau and of course we were granted VIP access to the Pearl, jumping queues and commencing a seemingly never ending night of partying. Our happy guests made that much clear: Never before have they been partying in such a vibrant and fashionable club!
