Best Burgers in Berlin: Chicago Williams BBQ


A few weeks back, after a very praising tip-off from a friend of mine, I visited the relatively new American BBQ hangout in Mitte called Chicago Williams BBQ. I went in search of amazing burgers, but their "burger"-less menu inhibited this search. The setback was not

Zwei Dicke Baeren's Ice Cream Sandwich


The concept of an ice cream sandwich appeals to me on so many levels. I mean, what sweet toothed person wouldn't want to sink their chompers into a dessert that combines cookies and ice cream! Yum yum! Recently, the ice cream sandwich made its way to Berlin, with one of

YAAM Closing Party

Posted on by admin Posted in Clubs, Drink, Featured Events, Learn, See, Watch, Weekend Tips, What's On Weekly | Leave a comment

If you are yet to hear the news, YAAM, the super chilled Jamaican themed beach bar on the shore of the river Spree, has officially been given its marching orders. One can only imagine what hideous construction will replace YAAM, but before such things are built, you will get one last chance to enjoy what is one of the last remaining ‘beach bars’ in Berlin.

yaam closing party

From Thursday until Monday, YAAM will celebrate one last time, the only way they know how, with street soccer & basketball, beach sports, a dance hall battle, reggae and hip hop. This will be you last chance to experience YAAM before the land gets turned into Berlin’s newest highrise.

However, things aren’t totally glum for the club/youth & community space, after much deliberation with city officials and others, YAAM has been given permission to move to a new location (below), also on the shore of the Spree, that is the current home of Magdalena. Surprisingly, as everyone else in Berlin seemed to know about this deal, the news came as somewhat of a surprise to the owners of Magdalena who vocalized their annoyance at the end of last year. However, the deal had been done, but before Magdalena move on they will also host a Closing Party this weekend.

Fuck Off Mediaspree

The immediate future of YAAM seems to be clear, but I am told a hotel will eventually be built behind the new location (where the ‘Fuck Off Media Spree’ building currently stands). Apparently during the negotiations between YAAM and the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg government, the owner of that proposed hotel began to voice his annoyance at the club being moved in front of his precious project. Here’s hoping he just fucks off with his hotel.

The Crawl Of The Damned Former Leader

Posted on by admin Posted in Learn, Read | Leave a comment

A few months ago I read an article entitled ‘Crawl of the damned‘ published on the website of the entertainment magazine ExBerliner. The piece was about one of ExBerliner’s contributors and his night out on one of those infamous Berlin Pub Crawls that loudly stomps, yells and vomits their way around Mitte taking in some of the ‘cool’ and ‘hot’ bars and nightclubs that Berlin is so famous for. Such Pub Crawls, I am semi ashamed to admit, are something that I am quite accustomed to, as yours truly used to be one those sheep herders escorting those drunken, moronic and bad mouthed Australians, that ExBerliner spoke of, from bar to bar as they obliterated themselves. So for the fun of it, I thought I would share with you an insight into such Pub Crawls, from the Tour Guides prospective.

Book Launch: Berlin Burlesque by Paul Green

Posted on by admin Posted in Featured Events, See | Leave a comment

This coming Saturday evening Roadrunners Paradise host the titillating launch party for a new photo book entitled ‘Berlin Burlesque‘ by Australian photographer Paul Green. The evening will feature a presentation by Publisher Dr. Norbert Jaron and Paul Green himself, which will be followed by a special performance by some of the beauties of the burlesque world.

Berlin BurlesqueBerlin Burlesque is a glimpse of the modern or ‘New Burlesque’ scene found in various smokey bars and theatres around Berlin. Paul’s work captures the glamour, eroticism and fun of the burlesque art form, that is strongly associated with Berlin of the 1920′s, but is one element of those golden twenties that still lives on today.

Paul Green’s ‘Berlin Burlesque’ will be available for purchase at the event or can alternatively be purchased through amazon.de. For more information regarding the book launch and party, check out the Facebook Event Page.
