Feed the hungry: A little something to keep up your strength
For sweethearts: the traditional Berlin company Sawade has been creating the very finest chocolate specialities since 1880. From September, the new flagship store at Hackesche Höfe adds extra sweetness to people’s lives, with the very best chocolate, truffles and pralines – with zero chemical additives. We can’t wait to get a taste.
LUXOS Recommends: Luculluspflaume, a praline containing a prune in brandy and rum marzipan, covered in dark chocolate
Panama arranges contrasts into harmonious coexistence: in a historical building, a beautiful modern dining room provides the setting in which you can enjoy excellent German cuisine with exotic influences. This makes for refreshingly unprecedented creations which leave a lasting impression.
LUXOS Recommends: Char-grilled beetroot, lightly smoked trout tartare, curcuma
Unique pieces: Treat yourself to something special
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but shoes are a lady’s! Luccico’s shoes are brilliantly extravagant and unique, made by the finest international designers as well as by small, family-run businesses from Italy. Forget uniformity and treat yourself to a beautifully impractical, unique piece.
Bags, bags, bags! The Scandinavian leatherware Label Royal RepubliQ opened their first monobrand store in the world this year, in Berlin. Besides a girl’s stylish handbags, essential in everyday life, there are also shoes, belts and accessories. The special feeling of luxury comes to life when touching the soft high-quality leather.
The first Sunspel Store in continental Europe opened its doors in Berlin this year. In the UK, the traditional British label produces unique pieces from the world’s best cotton and other high-quality materials. It is a very special store that, apart from selected pieces from the men’s and ladies’ collection, also gives customers the chance to see art exhibitions twice a year.
House of Gin
The tastefully opulent House of Gin at Hotel Palace Berlin may be the most stylish place in the city to finish your evening with a drink. There’s a reason for its name: drinks made from 150 different types of Gin are mixed directly in front of the guests. We especially recommend the fantastic Gin and Gin Tonic tasting menus.
