FRENCH BREAKFAST TREATS, FRESH FLOWERS AND BEATS — DISCO BRUNCH AT SCHMILBLICK

FRENCH BREAKFAST TREATS, FRESH FLOWERS AND BEATS — DISCO BRUNCH AT SCHMILBLICK

The quintessentially French cafe and concept store Schmilblick is remixing its usually chilled weekend for the second time with the return of the Disco Brunch and flower market this Sunday (25.07.2021). It’s an event that will satisfy all senses, starting (most importantly) with taste: the team are serving up their French favorites, including fresh cheeses with homemade jams, charcuterie plates, classic Mediterranean accompaniments such as sundried tomatoes and olive tapenade alongside perfectly-iced brioches and fresh pastries. As for hearing, the disco comes courtesy of sets from DJ PA and DJ Niko who bring guaranteed grooves and good vibes to accompany your brunch. The olfactory side is taken care of by Schmilblick’s fresh and dried flower bouquets and scented candles from in-house brand Garden State. You can reserve a table for the brunch by messaging the team on Instagram or alternatively just turn up on the day, grab a coffee, browse the store and enjoy the vibes. Sensory perfection!

PLANES AND DRINKS AT SUNSET — ROSINENBAR THF AT THE HISTORIC TEMPELHOF HANGAR

PLANES AND DRINKS AT SUNSET — ROSINENBAR THF AT THE HISTORIC TEMPELHOF HANGAR

Drinking at Tempelhofer Feld might not be new, but how about enjoying an ice-cold beer or refreshing cocktail right by the airport? Rosinenbar THF is a pop-up bar located in the former terminal that offers just such a high-flying experience. You reach the venue through the historic Werner-Loebermann-Weg departure halls, through what would have been security, then to the gate and down the steps out into a huge hangar. Usually out-of-bounds, this area is for a short time open to everyone for evening drinks. The venue is named after the Rosinenbomber aircraft which delivered food to West Berlin after the war, and serves up some provisions of its own with a fully-stocked bar plus food from the BBQ. A must-try is the Lufthansa Cocktail, which the flag carrier served to first class passengers in the 1950s and 60s (those were the days). There’s on-board entertainment too, with a line-up of jazz nights, film screenings and DJ sets, such as tonight’s (15.07.2021) reading by actor Marina Frenk followed by sundown music. Grab a seat and enjoy drinks with views of the Feld and the US army C-54 aircraft that still sits in the hangar. Sadly, the Rosinenbar will soon depart – it is only open until 25.07 – so consider this your final call for boarding…

ART AFTER WORK — AN EVENING AT THE BERLINISCHE GALERIE WITH DISCUSSION, DRINKS AND OPEN-AIR INSTALLATIONS

ART AFTER WORK — AN EVENING AT THE BERLINISCHE GALERIE WITH DISCUSSION, DRINKS AND OPEN-AIR INSTALLATIONS

This summer, art is breaking out of its four walls: for the Park Platz summer program, the Berlinische Galerie has transformed its car park into a community space for outdoor art and interactive events. Surrounded by cold, gray concrete in the gallery grounds you can find a bright, fabric-adorned metal frame that is welcoming visitors to free open-air exhibitions and special events. The space is home to works by eight Berlin-based contemporary artists from many different countries plus regular workshops and talks which touch on the program’s themes of encounter and desire, identity and nature. You can weave these artworks into your week with Art After Work (08.07.2021), the latest in a series of cultural evenings organized as part of the Jung und Artig membership group of young art enthusiasts.

From 18h the architects at c/o now who created the Park Platz pavilion will join the director of the Berlinische Galerie Thomas Köhler to share how they transformed a rather drab area into a vibrant centre for visual arts, debate, workshops and food. After the talk you can help yourself to a drink, take in music by DJ Robot Girl and wander round the large-scale installations which include Brasilian artist Lucas Odahara’s eight-meter-long tiled catwalk inspired by the queer balls held in his home country in the 1980s. Also impossible to miss is Marinella Senatore’s installation “Bodies in Alliance”, a towering illuminated gate which recalls the bright colored lights of a fairground. You don’t have to be a member of Jung und Artig to attend Art after Work, but if you do opt for membership you will gain priority access to exhibitions, free entry to the gallery and – best of all – discounted tickets for evening art. See you there!

A TASTE OF BRAZIL — COOL SMOOTHIES AND BOWLS AT THE TROPIX POP-UP AT MOTIF WEIN

A TASTE OF BRAZIL — COOL SMOOTHIES AND BOWLS AT THE TROPIX POP-UP AT MOTIF WEIN

Looking for a refreshing drink to set you up for hot summer days? Things don’t get much cooler than the smoothie mixes from Tropix, which are packed with tropical fruit that is flash-frozen as soon as it is harvested in Brazil. The result is a fruit pulp concentrate which you store in the freezer and simply combine with water or milk for a smoothie or açaí bowl that beats fresh fruit hands down (not to mention the hours saved peeling or chopping). So why Brazil? Apart from the fact that many tropical fruits – from guava to caja – grow well in the vast country’s plantations, Tropix’s founders Felipe and Bruno are themselves from Rio de Janeiro. Friends for 20 years, the pair are now based in Berlin and have set about bringing the fruits and flavors of Rio’s ubiquitous juice bars to Germany.

And so they have: the duo’s website now offers 15 superfood blends and single-fruit mixes, including varieties you probably haven’t heard of, including immune-boosting cupuaçu (it tastes like pear and banana) and the slightly tart, cherry-like acerola. You can mix, match and experiment to your heart’s content – each fruit comes in a multi-pack of handy 100g sachets ready to throw in the blender. The supermarket fruit aisle will never look the same again…

You can taste ready-made versions of the tropical drinks at the Tropix pop-up smoothie bar at Motif Wein, where you can also try Brazilian cheese buns from Nena Berlin this Saturday 26.06.2021.

Motif Wein, Weserstr.189, 12045 Berlin–Neukölln; map

EXPLORE BERLIN WITH A NEW (GREEN) PERSPECTIVE — THE ALLBIRDS X CEE CEE NEIGHBORHOOD MAP

EXPLORE BERLIN WITH A NEW (GREEN) PERSPECTIVE — THE ALLBIRDS X CEE CEE NEIGHBORHOOD MAP

Now that Berlin is back open for business, it’s the perfect time to (re)discover all the places we’ve been missing – and hopefully some new ones too. To celebrate the latest edition of our map series we have teamed up with sustainable footwear and clothing brand Allbirds for a blooming surprise this weekend (18–19.06.2021). Keep an eye out for the Allbirds cargo bikes passing through Prenzlauer Berg, Mitte and Kreuzberg and bag yourself a free eucalyptus bouquet from local florist Marsano as well as a freshly-printed copy of the Allbirds x Cee Cee Neighborhood Map. It features a brand new selection of handpicked spots – this time from all across Berlin – that do better things in a better way, including tried-and-tested independent cafes, neighborhood shops, natural wine boutiques, bakeries and more. Don’t miss the five walking tours taking you on day trips around some of the city’s best spots. Pick a route that fits your vibe – a gallery-filled cultural walk maybe? Or perhaps a sustainable shopping spree? – grab your favorite person and some comfy shoes and get exploring. To see where the Allbirds flower bikes, our maps and a free pair of shoelaces are stationed, check out our Instagram @ceeceeberlin, where you will also find our guide for a preview of what’s in the map. See you there!
