This week we’re getting smooth and dreamy on a mid-week with Better Person, drinking all the wine at Berlin WEINmesse, drinking all the gin with Blue Ruin and so much mehr. Our picks for wochenende spaß are below. Each of them is either highlighted with a:
Bron loves it! – more electronic, than not.
Lucy loves it! – more indie boy band/ pop vibes/ not techno.
Everyone loves it! – 2.5 words: shit’s ACE and/or edible.
URBAN SPREE – Everybody loves it!

BASE MENT – Everybody loves it!
We wrote some nice words about this party last time having not been to one before (debut edition and all) and the really super geil thing here is that they really all rang true – and then some. Gin, Tunes, Gin cocktails und vibes, Blue Ruin is a neue monthly nacht dedicated to one of the finer elixirs of life taking place in a really ideal Friday time slot, fitting nicely between work-end and club-Zeit, and quite possibly coinciding with pay day. Come for one, stay for many, find yourself in a club and crawl your way home around midday Saturday. Friday night drinks! Kicking off at 21:00, February’s gin menu consists of The Botanist, Brooklyn Gin and Tanqueray No. TEN, served via Gin & Tonics or Gin Cocktails (which were voll lecker in Jan’s edition) with tunes starting in the Lo-Fi / Dream Pop / Psych – realm, moving towards cosmic / deep house / house at the tail end. Bonus extra: lovely crowd, cosy vibes.

STATION BERLIN – Everybody loves it! It’s a bloody wine expo!
Educational, delicious, exceptionally boozey (if you want it to be) and a nice change from techno marathons, WEINmesse Berlin is back this weekend and couldn’t come more recommended for anyone who knows their Rieslings from their Müller-Thurgaus, or wants to. Running from Fri – Sund, 14:00 – 21:00, a 17€ ticket gives you access to a casual 400+ wine exhibitors from Deutschland and beyond and basically as much wine as you fancy tasting (no additional tasting fees). It’s a ridiculously good deal and a really great opportunity to learn more about (mostly) Deutsch Wein. Our tips: arrive early (there’s often a bit of a queue to get in), take your time at the stalls you visit and try to hit winemakers from different DE regions. Bonus extras include a handful of fine food vendors and the chance to mingle with wider-Deutschland (look at us branching out). Still not convinced? Just look at how much fun this lot are having.
