Nordic IT corporate group S-Group specialises in creating all-in-one business solutions for their customers. When they asked us to host the perfect incentive trip to Berlin for them, we were happy to show what we specialise in – creating unique Berlin experiences off the beaten path, even it’s a trip with more than 250 guests as in this case.
For their 3-day trip to Berlin we curated a programme showing the many faces of Berlin. Our guests resided in the stylish nHow music hotel right on the bank of Spree, where you can actually order a Guitar Room Service who’ll bring anything from headphones to an amplifier right to your room. On the first evening newcomer singer Nessi performed live on stage, while DJ Sara Moshiri was spinning records at our BBQ event on the lush riverside terrace with perfect views over the setting sun behind Oberbaumbrücke.
Following an app-based scavenger hunt with 30 teams combing the city for hints, a graffiti workshop at a hidden underground space and an inhibited summer buffet in one of Berlin’s summer beach clubs, the trip’s highlight finally drew closer.
Berlin’s river Spree runs along the former west-ost border and was the perfect route to a much anticipated gala dinner. We took a boat from the hotel to the vast Bolle Festsäle, that still embody Berlin’s industrial charm of the roaring 20s. The river is a great way to discover some of Berlin’s many secrets and our guides were eager to share their knowledge with the curious crowd.
The gala dinner saw the absolute highlights with stunning live performances by Swedish hightech drummers ConRytmo and a quirky bottle blow show by Glasblas Sing Quintett. The local DJ hero Superzandy, who kept both records and feet spinning until well past midnight, rounded up the sparkling gala. According to the management team of the company the intensive Berlin itinerary scored 10 out of 10 points. We love and know how to entertain people!
The buzz in Berlin never stops. We’re proud to present the latest issue of… Henrik’s World of Glamour!
Colette 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 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 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!
