Outstanding drinks while watching the depressing return of the BVB team: Harry’s New York Bar @ Sheraton Grand Esplanade Hotel (21. May 2016)

In order to finalize the evening, the decision was taken to enjoy a drink or two at the hotel bar, the Harry’s New York Bar (which is apparently the oldest hotel bar according to their own statement). The drinks they serve seem to vary a bit in “quality”. While I had a “Lemongrass Mojito” (EUR […]

Non-alcoholic Shisha place to relax: Xara Café Lounge (21. May 2016)

On our way to the restaurant Hasir, we smelled shisha fumes and decided to enjoy a shisha after dinner. However, we had no clue where to go but google pointed us in the right direction that there was basically a shisha bar right across the street of the restaurant. The Xara Café Lounge. What I […]

Great Turkish food @ Hasir Restaurant (21. May 2016)

The Hasir was recommended to me by a friend and as I haven’t had Turkish food since I last was to Istanbul two years ago (besides the quick stop-over from Baku via Istanbul two months ago), I was quite looking forward to it. And I started with a non-Turkish dish, “humus” (EUR 5.50) which was […]

New Sheraton Club Lounge @ Sheraton Grand Hotel Berlin Esplanade (21. May 2016)

Since I was here in December last year, they have renovated and extended the restaurant substantially – which includes the opening of a Sheraton Club Lounge. The lounge is located after the actual restaurant and is lovely. It is very calm (which was amazing as they were a lot of BVB fans at the hotel, […]

Lovely wine bar: Lutter & Wegner Gendarmenmarkt (20. May 2016)

The Lutter & Wegner wine bar is located basically right across the street of my office – and I never saw this place until this day. And it is actually quite nice – the interior is very traditional (it actually doesn’t look as new in real life as it does in the picture below) but […]

German cuisine – but a sophisticated version: Restaurant Rotisserie WeinGrün (20. May 2016)

German cuisine – but a sophisticated version: Restaurant Rotisserie WeinGrün (20. May 2016)

When approaching the Restaurant WeinGrün you can see the “Chaîne des Rôtisseurs” logo from afar. As I was not aware that the restaurant was part of the Chaîne when booking a table I was already positively surprised by that fact. Upon entering the restaurant you feel like really comfortable – like in a place where […]

Very decent lounge breakfast: Sheraton Club Lounge @ Sheraton Düsseldorf (19. May 2016)

When you have breakfast at a Club Lounge your expectations shouldn’t be set too high – and that is how you get positively surprised if you are setting your standards a bit lower. Well, the Sheraton Club lounge at the Sheraton in Düsseldorf is actually quite great to take a break. There are not many […]

Very fair priced lunch meals: Restaurant Loft Five (19. May 2016)

Very fair priced lunch meals: Restaurant Loft Five (19. May 2016)

The “speedy lunch offer” is actually quite amazing – they promise you to deliver your lunch within 15 minutes or else it is one the house. And it actually works. Today, it was “red lentil soup, a small salad, and grilled chicken skewers with lukewarm couscous and a yogurt dip” (CHF 29.00). And it was […]
