EXPLORING THE CITY WITH SOMEONE SPECIAL: GET YOUR COPY OF THE CEE CEE X HINGE NEIGHBORHOOD MAP

It’s that time again: the latest edition of The Neighborhood Map is here! As always, we didn’t do it alone — this time, we’ve teamed up with Hinge, the dating app designed to be deleted, to bring you the best city tips for great dates. If you’re in dating mode or simply looking for inspiration for memorable outings, grab the Cee Cee x Hinge The Neighborhood Map. It’s always free and “out there” — you can find it at selected spots all around the city. Follow us on Instagram to see exactly where, or check it out online on our map microsite. Alongside our picks for cafes and bars, we’ve also focused on places in Berlin that make perfect backdrops for special dates. We’ve included recommendations from people who’ve already found love—thanks to Hinge, of course. During our research, we discovered that Jeroen, one of our co-workers here at Cee Cee Studio, also met his girlfriend Marie on Hinge. Naturally, we had to share their story with you. The map reveals where Jeroen and Marie, and other Berlin based daters, went on their dates—and much more. So, whether you’re just in love with Berlin or on the lookout for that special someone, this one’s for you. See see you out there.

ICE CREAM AND APERITIVO MEET AT VASITO IN WILMERSDORF

ICE CREAM AND APERITIVO MEET AT VASITO IN WILMERSDORF

Ice cream and spritz make the perfect summer combination if you ask me. It’s a delicious cool-down solution for sweltering afternoons. Where do you go if you want to enjoy both? The answer is Vasito — the new ice cream and aperitivo bar in Wilmersdorf. Opened in May by husband and wife duo Fabio and Natascha Hilker, this ice cream parlor and bar mélange is a dream come true for the couple as they share their passion for ice cream and Mediterranean aperitivo culture with Berliners. This quaint establishment has an assortment of ice cream flavors such as mango, dark chocolate and rhubarb, as well as aperitivo cocktails. Try out the Bergamot Spritz or Negroni Bianco, you won’t be disappointed. And for those who enjoy a boozy ice cream drink, try the Prosecco poured over sorbet — choose from flavors like orange basil or lemon. While the ice cream and cocktails are the main draw, they also serve beer soft drinks, and Italian-style coffee. There’s indoor and outdoor seating, great for people-watching while sipping a drink. Open from noon till 9 pm, it’s the perfect place for after-school ice cream runs and, of course, aperitivo hour. If you assume Vasito is only worth a visit during the summer then you’d be wrong. They plan to open year-round with themed nights during the winter. With their winning combination of ice cream and cocktails, Vasito will quickly become your new favorite hangout spot.

SUNNY BOATS — SAIL PAST THE OBERBAUMBRÜCKE AND DIVE INTO THE SPREE NEXT TO FUNKHAUS

SUNNY BOATS — SAIL PAST THE OBERBAUMBRÜCKE AND DIVE INTO THE SPREE NEXT TO FUNKHAUS

Diving into the water in these sweltering temperatures and letting the wind caress your wet skin is something you can do particularly well with Sunny Boats. Sunny Boats offers boats with space for up to 12 people and are an easy, comfortable and, above all, fun way to explore Berlin from a different perspective and escape the hot, shadeless streets. And yes, there is plenty of shade here: each model is equipped with a sprayhood or bimini top – these not only provide the necessary protection from the blazing sun, but also give you the opportunity to sail dry across the Spree even in a light drizzle. However, if you are particularly looking forward to cooling off in the wet, you can drop anchor at any time, for example in front of the Funkhaus. We also sat down here for a small picnic (which can be arranged for you on request), while the others watched us on the stand-up paddle boards and made ourselves comfortable on the sun lounger with a book and a drink. Incidentally, the bathing platform with bathing ladder will convince even the biggest swimming fanatic in the group to take a dip in the water.

And if not, they can simply be appointed captain, because the motto here is: full speed ahead – without a boating license. Before you set off, the team will give you an introduction and make sure you feel comfortable on the water and know the rules. The starting point is Rummelsburger Bucht – from here you can make your way across the Spree to Köpenick and Müggelsee. Of course, you can bring your own food and drinks, and if you fancy a barbecue on such a hot and active day, you can get one directly from Sunny Boats. I’d say: put on your flip-flops, close your laptop and get out on the water – we’ve waited long enough for summer.

SUBTLE YET SUBVERSIVE ART — SUMMER GROUP EXHIBITION AT CCA’S NEW LOCATION

SUBTLE YET SUBVERSIVE ART — SUMMER GROUP EXHIBITION AT CCA’S NEW LOCATION

Summertime means group exhibition time. And that’s particularly the case at CCA, now located in the foyer of the Memorial Church. The nonprofit Center for Contemporary Arts has stayed (for the most part) under the radar and is opening its doors on Breitscheidplatz tonight (11.07.2024), both for its second exhibition with the pragmatic title “Summer 24” and for the newly inaugurated small artists’ bookstore. In the wood-paneled building, designed by Egon Eiermann, works by Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili, Thea Djordjadze, Nika Kutateladze, Klara Lidén, Albert Leo Peil, Rosemarie Trockel and Andro Wekua are gathered, united by a common thread: dark subtlety and a restrained yet beguiling aesthetic. The exhibition program is complemented by artist talks. The first talk is with Georgian painter Nika Kutateladze and director Fabian Schöneich and will take place this Saturday (13.07.24) at 14h. Summertime is group exhibition time, and you should not miss this one!

THREE TIPS FOR THE WEEKEND — MUSIC FESTIVAL, SANDWICH POP-UP & BOOK LAUNCH

THREE TIPS FOR THE WEEKEND — MUSIC FESTIVAL, SANDWICH POP-UP & BOOK LAUNCH

A new month, a new week, a new weekend, a new event bundle. This time we’re featuring a FLINTA* Sound Festival, drinks and bites at Unkompress, and Bastian Thiery’s photo book launch “Ordnungsamt“. It’s off to a flying start, as the Ordnugsamt opening takes place tonight (11.07.2024 from 18h) at Grotto in Hansaviertel. On display are the works of the German photographer taken on the streets of Berlin over the last four years. It’s a collection of everyday scenes reflecting the tension between order and rebellion. In another corner of the city, directly on the Spree, the Heroines of Sound festival kicks off at Radialsystem (11.-13.07.) — an interplay of concerts, performances, workshops, panel talks, and sound art — to strengthen the presence of FLINTA* artists in electronic music. There is also music on Sunday (14.07.) at Unkompress, with culinary accompaniments: Hudson will bring natural wine from Lammidia, pilsner from Hops & Barley, and a smokey beef and double cheese grilled sandwich to the Listening Bar right next to Hasenheide. A weekend full of art, sound, drinks and hopefully sunshine — it promises one thing above all else: a good time.
