House of Gin

Efter at have haft HoG på radaren et par år (corona….) har vi nu været der. De er kendte for at have et par hundrede forskellige gin, det er noget af et syn 🤗

Vi sad udenfor i loungeområdet, og det er givetvis en anden oplevelse end at sidde i baren, hvor bartenderne arbejder. Der er 7 ‘DNA’ cocktails + dagens cocktail på kortet, som man får udenfor.

Vi startede med en HOG Bramble som var lækker – baseret på hindbær med et svagt hint af lavendel. Den var faktisk rigtig god. Til EUR 13,50 er det ikke i den billige ende for Berlin. Vi skulle prøve en mere, og det blev en ‘Boar Eyyy!’ med Boar gin, Boar Caliber 1844, ribs, vanille, patchouli, lime og DOM Benedictine. Louise brød sig ikke om den, det gjorde jeg, så jeg assisterede med glæde. Til EUR 16 var det absolut i den høje ende for Berlin, så intet skulle gå til spilde 🤣

Vi kommer igen, helt sikkert, men så skal vi sidde i baren indenfor.

A-Trane jazz club

I det fantasiske område omkring Savignyplatz ligger A-Trane som virkelig er et besøg værd. Herbie Hancock, Ray Brown, Diana Krall, Wynton Marsalis og Till Brönner – de er vilde med at spille på A-Trane.

Vi besøgte A-Trane en kold og regnfuld marts aften i 2022. Klubben lever helt op til vores forventninger. Man sidder godt, der er god plads og venligt og imødekommende personale.
Man venter lidt på cocktails, da de ikke shaker når musikken spiller. Bartenderen går udenfor eller venter til mellem 2 numre. Meget respektfuldt men rart at vide hvis man er tørstig 😉


At vi ikke var vilde med musikken skal ikke komme stedet til last på nogen måde. Vi glæder os allerede til at komme tilbage og høre noget andet 😉

A-Trane har været et fast og vigtigt sted for international jazz i Berlin siden 1992. Hver lørdag efter midnat er der legendariske jam sessions med kendte musikere. Navnet A-Trane er en hentydning til “Trane”, kælenavnet for jazz saxofonist John Coltrane, og Duke Ellington’s signatursang “Take the A Train”.

Badenscher Hof

Jazz with Cajun food

Badenscher Hof (C) allesgut berlin
Badenscher Hof (C) allesgut berlin

En iskold marts aften i 2022 besøgte vi for første gang Badenscher Hof. En aften hvor Sam Leigh Brown og Peter Befort Quintett spillede der. Vi skulle også spise der og suge den her “cajun og jazz” stemning ind.

Klubben er meget tysk i sin indretning. Det er et neutralt udsagn i denne sammenhæng.

Vi (2 pers.) blev placeret ved et lille rundt bord, hvor der i forvejen sad 2 gæster og spiste aftensmad. Det var lidt klaustrofobisk 😉
Menukortet emmer ikke af evner og fantasi – vi valgte “chicken jambalaya” som nok var det allermest eksotiske. Jeg kunne godt lide det – det var ret stærkt. Louise var lidt mere forbeholden, men fik da spist halvdelen i mangel af bedre.

Inden musikken startede, kom der en tjener rundt og bad om EUR 20 pr. person til musikken – det er ok for en lille intim koncert. Musikken var sgu meget god – noget virkede lidt uøvet eller improviseret, men det var meget hyggeligt.

Da vi skulle afregne til slut, var vi røget i tyskerfælde nr. 1 – de tog kun mod kontanter. Så jeg måtte på jagt efter en hæveautomat – som heldigvis var hos Edeka på modsatte side af vejen.

Var det så godt, så I kommer tilbage? spørger du nok. Måske, men vi prøver nok lige nogle andre først. Men det skal ikke afholde dig fra at høre musik der.

Restaurants in idyllic locations

Jeg har læst en artikel om nedenstående steder, de lyder hyggelige, så de er kommet her på siden som en påmindelse på to-do listen. Opdateringer følger når vi, over tid, har besøgt stederne.

Hofcafé bei Mutter Fourage
In the nostalgic farmyard ambience of a former hay and straw enterprise you will find a hive of cultural activity today. In addition to a gallery and the culture barn, there is also a cosy café with fresh cakes, drinks and dishes from the daily menu. Combine a visit to the café with a cultural event on the farm – or enjoy a relaxed breakfast at Mutter Fourage before a sunny day at Wannsee.
Hofcafé bei Mutter Fourage, Chausseestrasse 15A, 14109 Berlin

BrewDog Marienfelde
Brewing beer has a long tradition in Berlin. However, since 2019, the BrewDog brewery has been offering a completely new experience and stands out from the wood-panelled flair of traditional breweries: In the Marienpark at the Altes Gaswerk Mariendorf it welcomes its guests with modern, industrial flair and fresh design. All dishes that go well with freshly tapped beer are served – from pretzels and Strammer Max to pizza and burgers. Vegetarians and vegans can also eat their fill here.
BrewDog DogTap Berlin, Im Marienpark 23, 12107 Berlin


Café Botanico
Fresh ingredients directly from the restaurant’s own 1,000-square-metre permaculture organic garden – this is possible even in the heart of Neukölln. In the kitchen of the charming little restaurant Café Botanico with Mediterranean flair, the main produce used are the daily yields from the restaurant’s garden. The ambience is therefore intentionally kept informal and easy-going. Reserve a table in advance, especially for the evening.
Café Botanico Berlin, Richardstraße 100, 12043 Berlin

Hafenbar-Fischerinsel
Directly at the Historical Harbour Berlin, surrounded by nostalgic, lovingly restored barges is the Hafenbar-Fischerinsel. The bar itself can be found aboard two old ships: The barge Adonis built in 1929 and the Berlin custom-made barge Renate-Angelika built in 1910. With its special atmosphere directly on the Spree, the Hafenbar-Fischerinsel is the perfect place to enjoy snacks and drinks, especially on sunny days and at sunset. You can observe the hustle and bustle on the water and at the Mühlendamm Lock.
Hafenbar-Fischerinsel, Märkisches Ufer 28, 10179 Berlin


Jagdhaus Spandau
On the banks of the Havel river in the Spandauer Forst, surrounded by vast forests and swamplands, the cosy Jagdhaus Spandau welcomes you. In keeping with the elegant country house ambience with a large brick fireplace and dark wooden beams, you will be served traditional specialities of German cuisine. On the seasonally changing menu you will also find regional fish, such as Havel pike-perch, as well as game goulash and other game dishes. Dining at the restaurant can be perfectly combined with a day on the beach at the nearby bathing beach or with a hike in the Spandauer Forst.

Wannseeterrassen
The restaurant Wannseeterassen is located in the northern part of the Strandbad Wannsee open-air lido, slightly raised above the beach. With its bar, café and pastry shop, it is a particularly nice place to end a relaxing day at the Wannsee beach in style. Because there you can enjoy the picturesque sunset over the Wannsee with a good meal and an exquisite wine.

Restaurantschiff Alte Liebe
The Alte Liebe ship restaurant is one of the oldest waterfront restaurants in Berlin. In the tradition of the special Berlin Kaffenkähne barges, the old freight barge has been welcoming hungry day-trippers and hikers to the northern Grunewald for about 70 years. For refreshment you will find ice-cream sundaes, coffee or even schnitzel. In a nostalgic, wood-panelled ambience with a view of the wildly romantic banks of the Havel, you will feel as if you have been transported back in time by several decades – and you will enjoy a picturesque view of the sunset.

Spreearche
A log cabin floating in the middle of the water – the SpreeArche is one of the more unusual excursion locations in Berlin. The venue’s own raft transports guests the 50 or so metres from the shore to the restaurant. Once there, two floors with sunny terraces and a beautiful view over the Müggelsee, as well as cosy interiors, await you. On the menu you will find Norwegian fish specialities and regional products.
Spreearche, Müggelschlößchenweg 0, 12559 Berlin

Café mint im Botanischen Volkspark Pankow
A special restaurant among nature in Berlin: In Café mint* you can enjoy coffee and cake – or tea and scones – in the exotic ambience of a greenhouse lavishly filled with plants. Here you can take a relaxing break when you visit the Botanical Volkspark of Blankenfelde-Pankow. The extensive park has been presenting protected horticulture for about 100 years, surrounded by natural meadows.
Café mint, Botanischen Volkspark Pankow, Blankenfelder Chaussee 5, 13159 Berlin

Wirtshaus Moorlake
Built around 1840, the inn has a long tradition on the beautiful riverside walking trail between Pfaueninsel and Glienicke Bridge in the far west of Berlin. In addition to home-style German cuisine in a nostalgic, wood-panelled ambience – with artistic stucco, paintings and a tiled stove – art and culture also await you here: several times a month the restaurant hosts readings by well-known authors.

Britzer Seeterrassen
The Britzer Seeterrassen are very centrally located for an idyllic waterfront restaurant in Berlin: on the beautiful Hauptsee in the picturesque Britzer Garten, in the heart of the Neukölln district of Britz. Seasonal German cuisine and cakes are served in the eye-catching building, which is reminiscent of an earth mound, situated right by the lake. The stylish, bright restaurant is a perfect place to stop on a walk through the beautiful 90-hectare park with meadows, flowerbeds and water areas.

Lindwerder Island
Excursions to the enchanting Havel island of Lindwerder should also include a visit to the Restaurant Lindwerder: The stylish and nostalgic establishment welcomes you with a spacious terrace shaded by trees, from which you can enjoy a beautiful view over the water. The kitchen serves seasonal and classic dishes, from salads to schnitzel. As a romantic conclusion of a trip to Lindwerder you can watch the sunset over the island and the Havel river from the terrace.

Tegeler Seeterrassen
The Tegeler Seeterrassen are located directly at the landing stage of the cruise ships on Lake Tegel. The elegant outdoor terraces with glass balustrades and the cosy, bright interior of the restaurant invite day-trippers to linger. Over coffee and cake or pasta and German dishes you can enjoy a wonderful view of the boats docking and casting off on the Havel. On Sundays you can start the day here on the picturesque lakeside with a culinary brunch.
Tegeler Seeterrassen, Wilkestraße 1, 13507 Berlin

Mutter Lustig
An excursion to Köpenick’s old town should also include a meal at Mutter Lustig, right next to Köpenick Palace on the idyllic Dahmebucht (Dahme bay). The cosy day-tripper restaurant with terrace serves seasonal, predominantly German cuisine in a nostalgic ambience – but you should also take a look at the large selection of cakes and gateaux. The restaurant takes its name from a 19th century washerwoman who was immortalised in a fountain on the shore.
Mutter Lustig, Müggelheimer Straße 1, 12555 Berlin

Unsicht-bar

Berlins første mørke-restaurant. Besøgt og anmeldt af Sarah og Jonas.

unsicht-bar (C) allesgut berlin
unsicht-bar (C) allesgut berlin

Ligger 10-15 minutters gang fra Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, med U2 mod Pankow.
Hele oplevelsen værd! Man vælger menu, som er en enten vegansk, fisk eller overrask os. Vi valgte den sidste, man kunne tilkøbe vinmenu til 15 euro pr person, det gjorde vi. Vi fik en velkomst drink i en form for lobby, hvor man derefter, selskab efter selskab blev ledt ned af en trappe, hvor ens tjener ventede på en. Her kom vi ind i et stort selskabslokale, som kun var lyst op af små form for stearinlys, og vores tjener ledte os hen til vores bord. Da alle havde fået deres pladser blev lysene slukket og fjernet. Og det blev HELT mørkt. Vi kunne INTET se, under HELE middagen. Vi kunne kun bruge følesansen, vi var lidt skeptiske til at starte med, men da der kom live klaverspil, blev det mere roligt.
Vi kunne stadig ikke se pianisten. Så fik man ret efter ret serveret, og et nyt glas vin til hver ret. Det varede i alt omkring 3 1/2 time. Det kan HELT KLART anbefaledes! De har forskellige “tema-aftner”, som man kan kigge på.

Dicke Wirtin – das Alt BerlinerTraditions Restaurant

Dicke Wirtin (C) allesgut berlin
Dicke Wirtin (C) allesgut berlin

Inmitten des schönen Berlins befindet sich hier in Charlottenburg ein echtes Stück Berliner Geschichte: Die „Dicke Wirtin“. Ganz gleich aus welchem Grund Sie sich für einen Besuch in der Dicken Wirtin entscheiden, hier können Sie noch Berliner Tradition erleben und genießen.

Trotz moderner Einflüsse hat sich die Dicke Wirtin den Berliner Charme erhalten. Jeder Turbulenz wurde hier mit Gelassenheit und einem gut gezapften Bier begegnet.

Carmerstraße 9, 10623 Berlin (gå afstand fra Savigny Platz)

Junction Bar

This is in the heart of the traditionally non-conformist Kreuzberg district

Junction (C) allesgut berlin
Junction (C) allesgut berlin

Founded in 1993, the two-storey club hosts a café above and a cellar club below in peaceful coexistence. If you want to move from one to the other, however, you have to go outside first, since there is no connecting staircase. Jazz, pop, blues, rap, funk and Brazilian music are all played live here.

Gneisenaustraße 18, 10961  Berlin (U-bhf Gneisenaustrasse / U7)

Badehaus Szimpla

The jazz parties in the former workers’ bathhouse of the old Reichsbahn Repair Works (RAW) are characterised by world music. Området ved Warschauer Strasse.

Badehaus Szimpla (C) allesgut berlin

Whether balkan, swing, folk or jazz music – all sorts of music are possible here, the only requirement is that is has to be sophisticated. The Badehaus Szimpla is the Berlin counterpart to the café of the same name in Budapest, which has a stern reputation in the jazz scene.

Revaler Straße 99, 10245  Berlin

Jazz club b-flat

B-Flat ligger i området mellem Hackesher Markt og Alexanderplatz hvor vi tit kommer. Mon ikke vi checker b-flat ud snart ….

b flat (C) allesgut berlin
b flat (C) allesgut berlin

B-flat was founded in 1995 by the musicians Jannis Zotos and Thanassis Zotos together with the actor André Hennecke. The very different character of the founders is reflected in the atmosphere, which varies between jazz club and cocktail bar according to which of the very diverse musicians is currently performing.

Dircksenstraße 40, 10178  Berlin

Kunstfabrik Schlot

Dette er en jazzklub, de har et fedt program og jeg kan ikke vente med at besøge dem …… har læst godt om dem.
