Red Carpet – Henrik’s World of Glamour

It’s been a while since we last reported about our sinful little weekends maneuvers, but that’s just because we’re always working or drinking. Or both. It is our self proclaimed noble duty to visit the city’s flashiest red carpets and help empty the champagne stocks where we can. And all just for you! Promise. Here’s the hottest openings of the past months.

Bricole
Prenzlauerberg’s buggy-pushing-vegan-moms, rejoice! The district of soy milk frappucinos and sky-high rents now boasts its own distinctive gourmet temple. With Bricole, former Borchardt restaurant manager Fabian Fischer sets sail for new culinary horizons. The opening night revealed an atmospheric Hors ­d’œu­v­re-Bar with a tasty stronghold: wonderful bite-sized portions inspired Paris’ culinary delights, just without the stiffness. The only thing you won’t find at Bricole are main courses.

Interview Magazine Party
Ever since Andy Warhol founded INTERVIEW magazine in 1969, their parties put people’s livers to the test. Naturally our livers weren’t exactly thrilled when we received an invitation to the German spin off’s 5 year jubilee. But it’s hard to say no when the party takes place at Provocateur, Berlin’s brand new burlesque hotel. Red plush, international top DJs and a Russian oligarch as sponsor attracted celebs from Dr. Döpfner (CEO Springer) to TV icon Palina Rojinski.

Bulgari’s Night of the Legend Party
Befitting their reputation as an extravagant fashion label, guests of Bulgari’s Berlinale party were chauffeured in sleek brand-new Porsches. The party’s motto? “See and be seen”. The same as every fashion party’s. Ever. What most people don’t know: The A-list celebs just come for the red carpet. After that, they take off to the next paparazzi-loaded event and leave the party to the C-&D-list. Spotted on the carpet: Lottie Moss (Kate’s sister), Toni Garrn, Armie Hammer and Daniel Brühl.

GALA magazine Berlinale Party
Gala magazine loves gossip, but for celebrities it’s a love-hate relationship. On one hand they want privacy, on the other they crave attention. Gala’s grand Berlinale party definitely was a hotspot for attention seekers – the who-is-who of the film scene assembled to kick off this year’s Berlinale. Crowds of celebs shuffled down the red carpet, foremost Jean Paul Gaultier, who loves Berlin parties. In Paris, everyone’s too snobbish. Couldn’t agree more, Jean Paul. Now give us back our champagne glass.

RBB Xmas Special
It seems the word has gotten around that we’re a real door opener for nightlife reports. This time it was TV station RBB who asked us to show them how Berlin ticks when the sun goes down. We present: Berlin from 9pm to midnight.

Berlinagenten Luxury Award Party
We’re easily among the coolest lifestyle agencies in the milky way, so naturally we had to throw a big fat party to celebrate our award as “best culinary experience of the year” at Luxury Travel Guide. As true hedonists, we invited our partners to celebrate at sinful Sodom&Gomorra bar in Berlin-Mitte, where the nights are known to be just as long as dirty. The atmosphere was delightful until Henrik held his thank-you speech fuelled by no less than three moscow mules. After his speech, things went off the hook. Sword-swallowing Beautiful Jewels, pumping party classics and an everlasting supply of Berlin’s finest beverages assured the No. 1 Berlinagenten rule was enforced: no one goes home sober.

Eat BerlinMampes neue Heimat
According to lifestyle magazine Traveller’s World, Eat Berlin ranks among the 10 best gourmet festivals in the world. Tickets to their selected events are in high demand, so we were lucky to be invited to one of the coolest events to date – Skykitchen’s away game at MAMPE’s neue Heimat. Star cook Alexander Koppe’s 5-course menu was the perfect match for three distinctive Mampe drinks – a revived Schnapps label that can only be bought at the manufactory in Berlin.

Berlinagenten Wins the Luxury Travel Award

Grab a bottle of champagne and put your kinkiest party dress on – Berlinagenten won an Oscar! Well… not an actual Oscar. We’re happy to announce we won the Luxury Travel Award for the Culinary Experience of the Year, which honestly is the closest thing to an Oscar you can win without being an actor.

The award winners are selected for their achievements in the travel industry by in-house professionals, international representatives of the hospitality scene and celebrity guest judges. They awarded our Gastro Rallye, a tour where one course is served at each restaurant. The ‘Gastro Rallye’ is an overall experience. While you’re eating and enjoying yourself in 3 or 4 different restaurants, you gain an introduction to the lifestyle of Berlin.

The focus lies on innovation of food and a modern kitchen, service orientation, contemporary interior and cool overall design. We usually avoid Michelin star restaurants as they often are too pretentious, missing the buzz of a cool crowd. That approach was the beginning of Berlinagenten - a story of success. It was never our intention to save the world, but to help high demanding travellers. We feel very honored to receive this award and we want to thank all our customers, partners and guides who have made all this possible.

Berlinagenten for ever!

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!
