PALAZZO ANTICRISI & VICTORIA TACOS POP-UP — INSTALLATION MEETS WINE SPÄTI MEETS MEXICAN STREET FOOD

At Torstraße.74 sits a surreal place for surreal times: Palazzo Anticrisi, a temporary installation at the former No.74 clothing store that offers a unique space for social interaction. Working with Berlin architects Something Fantastic and Sam Chermayeff, founder Fabian Johow has created a room that brings the outdoors in: bathed in ruby-red light, the hall-like space features an oversized street lamp in the middle looming over sparse bench-style seating. Austere yet sociable, it’s a fascinating place to spend time – yet there is more to do, for from now until December the space is also home to a kiosk offering a good selection of natural wines to enjoy there or to go (Thu-Sat). On Fridays and Saturdays, meanwhile, the palace opens its doors to a spicy popup by Victoria Tacos. Fresh from an Art Week stand at the Wilhelm Hallen, the Mexican food pros are now based at the Palazzo, serving deliciously non-traditional tacos in vegan (king oyster mushroom), vegetarian (melt-in-the-mouth jackfruit) and meaty (slow-cooked pork) varieties. Get your order with a bottle to go or pick out a comfy throne and enjoy a session of food, drinks and thoughtful contemplation – just like an Italian aristocrat.
