Is there anything better than where spring meets Summer? We didn’t think so. May is the lovechild of those two glorious seasons, wrapped up into 31 days of prized transitioning. Now that people have started to reappear on the streets again – goodbye hibernation – we want to keep it ultra local with our recommendations and revisit some of the idiosyncratic facets that make Berlin, Berlin, like, incredible vintage shops, Caribbean themed beach parties on a Sunday, and brunch in some, well, expected places.

Friday

Maybe it will be hard to convince everyone to sample a northern watering hole, but after they try it once, they won’t need any more convincing.

CULTURE | Show off

Nothing traditional about this Caribbean party for Sunday funday, except that it happens every 2nd Sunday.
