Henne

In a city where the only constant is that everything is constantly changing, you have to respect an establishment that has not only survived 100 years, but remains so busy that reservations are always strongly recommended. Is it the food or the romance of how the bar-turned-restaurant’s history intertwines with the city of Berlin that […]

CHIPPS
CHIPPS

It’s 8 p.m. on a Thursday night when my partner and I step into CHIPPS on Jägerstraße. The first thing that catches our eye is the restaurant’s centerpiece: a large open kitchen with an attached salad bar filled with fresh ingredients. We are quickly seated at a wooden table next to one of the panoramic […]

.HBC
.HBC

There is a certain mayhem to .HBC, the eclectic, multi-story, hybrid art, cinema and dining space located in Berlin’s Alexanderplatz. In keeping with Berlin’s fetish for recycling and the barely-renovated chic of its bars, this former East Berlin Hungarian Cultural Center remains office-esque. Hipsters in high heels cannot click-clack across the old carpet and lino […]

Erik Lorincz
Erik Lorincz

Taking after his illustrious bartending predecessors such as Ada Coleman, creator of the “Hanky-Panky,” and Harry Craddock, creator of the “White Lady,” the 31-year-old, Slovakia-born Erik Lorincz took the reins as the head bartender of the world-renown American Bar for the October 10, 2010 reopening of The Savoy, the iconic London hotel, after its three […]

Urbanite: Park Avenue
Urbanite: Park Avenue

Park Avenue Changes With The Seasons As an interior designer, I love to visit new hotels, lounges and, of course, dine in restaurants that make my jaw drop. The suspense of the unknown design is exhilarating, to say the least. The feel of the tabletops, the colors and schemes are part of the best restaurants this […]

Ozumo
Ozumo

Obsession with Perfection Somehow, a girl named Linda from Commack, New York, is responsible for all this. This, being the burgeoning empire of Japanese cuisine, décor, atmosphere and drink that are the very essence that is Ozumo. The posh Japanese lounge and restaurant, originally founded in 2001 on Steuart Street in San Francisco, is the […]

Back Alley Chic
Back Alley Chic

John Colins at 90 Natoma was always synonymous with the south of Market happy hour. Everyday at five o’clock, SOMA professionals would bounce down the alley to that familiar old brick façade, breeze through the curtain and get on with the good times. These were good times indeed, but these days are over. John Colins […]

Amsterdam Beyond Red Lights
Amsterdam Beyond Red Lights

Most people do one of two things when traveling through Amsterdam. It’s a little ridiculous. Residents tolerate it, happy to keep the best spots in the city to themselves. Tourists stay in a congested area directly adjacent to Dam Square, bobbling around trying to avoid being tagged by a steady flow of bikes, trams, cars […]

The Collective
The Collective

At first glance, entering The Collective puts the senses into overdrive with an amalgamation of disconnected décor.  But upon closer inspection, wonderment and irony appears in every nook, as everyday items and trash are refashioned into artwork with a new sense of purpose and fill this trendy Meatpacking lounge/restaurant. The theme behind The Collective is […]

Casa Del Pez
Casa Del Pez

The bartenders’ alleged transgressions are scrawled on the black walls of Casa del Pez: All drinks are served by descendents of criminals. Grisly images a la Garcia Alix line the wall. The ornate carved floor-to-ceiling shelves seem too opulent for this bar, albeit beset with bottles. La Casa del Pez stocks nearly two-dozen brands of […]

Olivia Te Cuida
Olivia Te Cuida

Nestled on a tiny street where tangerine flowers spill over balconies, Olivia Te Cuida seats diners around communal tables in a modest 280-square-foot space. With killer natural light, antique furniture finds and naked eggshell walls, the café speaks to an urban simplicity. Candles are lit at breakfast; the air is perfumed by freshly cut hyacinth. […]

Baco Y Beto
Baco Y Beto

Located in a narrow space in the heart of Madrid’s gay district, Baco y Beto is the kind of neighborhood restaurant you show a friend or client, and then see there a week later with their friends. Suddenly you wish you had never brought them, because the place is packed—it seats 20, with additional standing […]

Bourbon Beyond the Strip
Bourbon Beyond the Strip

The best Las Vegas has to offer, at least concerning bourbon, is not to be found on the world-renowned Strip (Las Vegas Boulevard South). Unexpectedly, the city’s largest collection of bourbon sits on the second floor of the Freakin’ Frog, a local public house located across the street from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas […]

Movida
Movida

“The word MoVida is a saying adopted by the Spanish, based on a movie made in the 1970s,” starts Andy McMahon from his home in inner-city Melbourne. “It basically translates as ‘do what you want, be free to enjoy life.’” It’s an apt title for the restaurant McMahon co-owns with Spanish-born chef Frank Camorra. In […]

Down the Rabbit Hole: An Insider’s Guide to Australia’s Drinking Wonderland
Down the Rabbit Hole:  An Insider’s Guide to Australia’s Drinking Wonderland

Believe the hyperbole surrounding the Australian bar scene; the country is unique for giving visitors and locals the sense that they’ve just “stumbled upon” a hidden bar that’s either down a side alley, behind a back street, or through an unmarked door. Like Alice down the rabbit hole, the sense of discovery makes a night […]

Christa Manalo

In just a few hours, a line of patrons and parties will wait patiently outside the door for a healthy dose of nightlife. There is a good chance that every decadent cocktail infusion will […]

John Lermayer
John Lermayer

John Lermayer had humble beginnings behind the counter of a deli in Queens making sand-wiches and egg salad. But his real passion was the art of mixology, and he immersed himself into this world by studying the history of the cocktail from the days of the Prohibition Era and worked under some of the nation’s […]

Kristen Schaefer
Kristen Schaefer

Though Kristen Schaefer studied to be a special education teacher, she left that world to pursue her passion as a mixologist. What makes her happiest is serving a perfect cocktail and interacting with the customer, and to her a good drink starts with the freshest ingredients. In the spring of 2008 she moved to Las […]

Sarina Suno

Sarina Suno’s love of music practically started when she was in the womb. She was a five-year-old when she began classical training on the violin. But it wasn’t just the classics that inspired her, her musical interests spanned from jazz to electronic music. Throughout Suno’s teens and college years she toured Japan and won numerous […]

Sebastian Reaburn & The Year 1806
Sebastian Reaburn & The Year 1806

“It was in the year 1806 that the word ‘cocktail’ was first defined in print,” says mixologist and founder of Melbourne’s 1806 bar, Sebastian Reaburn. “Believe it or not, we had written the cocktail list before we had even finalized the site for the bar, and a long time before we decided on its name. […]

Haute Hotel
Haute Hotel

Beauty in the details Tucked away on Via San Raefelle, mere steps from Milan’s breathtakingly ornate duomo, the Hotel Straf offers a mélange of fashion, art, and hospitality that is truly one of a kind.
