Berlin might be famous for a good number of reasons but for the party-lover and the night-crawler, it is also famous for its good number of convenience stores, some of which stay open 24/7. A Spätkauf (a late-night shop affectionately dubbed Spätis by Berliners) stock a basic range that includes drinks (read beer), snack food and basic household items. Durst looks up the user’s location or any given input address to point out the closest Spätis along with added information such as opening hours.
