Berlin After Dark: Where to Play, Party and Partake in a Unicorn Forest
Headed to the fest? THR's guide to three hot spots to visit while in the city.
Radio — The Label Bar
Frankfurter Allee 23
Vienna's cult Radio bar brings its unique blend of comfort and kitsch to Berlin. This combination bar, cafe and mini-club has its own fashion line as well as an in-house DJ and an electronic music label. The homemade cocktails — like the $7 Einhornwald (Unicorn Forest), a mix of gin, rose, OJ and elderberries — already are legendary.
Hannoversche Strasse 1
Berlin's latest high-end culinary experiment already has developed a following for its experimental menu, which offers strictly locally sourced, seasonal fare that tilts toward vegetarian (no small feat in meat-loving Berlin) and includes impressive wine pairings. While dinner is on the pricey side for Berlin — a six- to 10-course meal runs 77 euros to 117 euros ($82 to $125), plus wine — those with a less-generous expense account should try the lunch menu, where a three-course meal starts at 29 euros ($31).
Danziger Strasse 23
The name says it all: Mangi and Arte: Eating and Art. This Italian confectionery is just the spot to indulge after a 12-hour slog through the film market. From the sweet — pasticcini, melt-in-your mouth cornetti and cannoli — to the heartier, but no less delicious, focaccia and panini, the pastries are a labor of love.
