A weekend in Berlin: Gentleman-Style

If you’re traveling to Europe to enjoy some classy “me-time”, a weekend in Berlin should be on top of your bucket list. Germany’s capital is one of the most vibrant, stylish, and fun cities on the planet. Here are some cool gentleman tips for your trip to Berlin.

The perfect hotel in Berlin for gents …

… is not that easy to find. Not because there are none, but because there ares so many amazing and super stylish places to choose from! So, it all comes down to your personal taste.

If you enjoy a rather bohemian flair, you should book a room in the legendary Soho-House in Berlin. Just a few steps away from the Alexander Platz in the heart of the city, this beautifully decorated getaway offers everything a distinguished gentleman could ever wish for. Each square inch of the eight-story building radiates urban chic. The room size ranges from 20 sqm (“tiny”) to gigantic lofts, where you can easily host a party for 20 friends. What they all have in common is a unique living atmosphere. Fine art, free standing bathtubs, leather sofas, cosy beds with linen made of Egyptian cotton … you’ll feel right at home!

If you’re more into modern design, the hotel “Lux 11” might be the right fit. The former office building of the KGB is now home to 72 self-contained design apartments that guarantee an upscale living experience. If you don’t mind paying a “bit” more, the Penthouse Suite is the best place to enjoy your gentleman trip to Berlin: 160 sqm filled to the brim with pure luxury.

Wellness for gentlemen is not only about massages, sauna, and spa. We’re talking about a nice barber experience, cool shopping, a good cigar, some high-end spirits, exquisite food, great wines, and the company of a beautiful lady. Berlin has it all!

To start your day, you could call one of the elite escort agencies in town and have them arrange a classy date with a dream woman for the upcoming evening. Once that is done, a visit to one of the best barbers in the world is just what you need. In this case, you want to head down to the “Gentlemen’s Circle”. This institution is much more than just the best barber in town – it is the embodiment of pure “gentleman-ism”. You’ll find a concept store with an exquisite choice of tailor-made suits, masculine perfumes, cigars, and so on.

Another cool shopping experience for gentlemen in Berlin is the Chelsea Farmers Club. This place is much more than just a store for British gentleman’s fashion. It’s a gin bar, a small restaurant, an event location – in short: It’s the ideal location for gents in Berlin to hang out and have some fun! Another cool stop on your shopping tour through Berlin should be “The Corner”, especially if you are into more modern, colorful, and younger designer fashion. From hip slogan sneakers by Fendi and stylishly imprinted sweaters to the latest puffer jackets by Moncler, they’ve got it all.

The culinary diversity of Berlin is truly unique! No matter which cuisine you prefer or on which culinary adventure you’d like to embark, this fantastic city has it all. And as Germany’s biggest hub of start-ups, you’ll have no problem in finding an app with which you can book a table at the restaurant of your choice.

One of the newest restaurants in town is called “Heimlich Treu” which roughly translates into “Secretly Faithful”. This super cozy place is hidden in a backyard in Berlin Mitte and serves traditional German cuisine in a very modern and creative way, making it a real restaurant insider tip for Berlin.

How about trying out the Serbian kitchen? The restaurant “Kafana” in Berlin-Wilmersdorf will introduce you to this hearty and amazing food. Finally, a fusion between Peru and Japan! What sounds like a culinary disaster bound to happen will turn out to become one of the most spectacular food experiences you will have in a long time!
