The Hipster's Guide to Berlin

THE HIPSTER'S GUIDE TO BERLIN Shoreditch in east London is so 00s, and you can forget the over-gentrified Brooklyn and Portland in the US. Berlin, with its 400+ art galleries, independent DIY ethos and swarm of fixed-gear bikes, is the real hipster mecca. There's nowhere else on the planet more suited to your tick-rimmed spectacles, a rolled-up copy of Vice magazine protruding from your Fjallraven Kanken rucksack, and #nofilter Instagrammed pics of your friend's ironic beard. What to drink You can't be a proper hipster and be seen in a chain coffee shop. You must find the most obscure and innovative new brewing techniques. Bonanza Bonanza - Mitte roasts beans in house, sells beans for you to take home, and customers even sit on bags of beans instead of chairs. Where to Sing blackbird hang out On top of offering delicious locally roasted coffee and vegan food, Sing blackbird - in Kruezberg also has a vintage clothes shop, where you can trade in your old threads for credit in the café. Trendy creatives can't afford to live in expensive areas so look for the up-and-coming places to renovate. Prenzlauer Berg Prenzlauer Berg is historically hip, though in recent years it has seen gentrification and rents have risen, pushing out the in crowd. Where to Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain get your street food fix Neukölln Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain, as well as Neukölln, are today's places to be. * First it was cupcakes and then came the burgers, But beware! What's cool changes quickly and there's always somewhere new on the hipster radar. after that we all went a bit crazy for burritos, and now it seems that ramen is the chic food option among the in crowd. Street Food Thursdays In Berlin you can find all of this, and much more besides, in abundance, at Street Food Thursdays at Markthalle Neun. Where to buy your togs Plaid shirts, tiny woolly hats, oversized spectacles, retro frocks, rolled-up skinny chinos, unkempt brogues; where do I get hipster staples in Berlin?

Pauls boutique Pauls boutique - Mitte is a legendary vintage outlet, comprising four shops across Berlin, featuring street wear and designer gear. Club Der Visionaere in Kreuzberg If you're looking to continue after the clubs have finished, head to canal-side Club Der Visionaere in Kreuzberg, where punters watch the sun come up and listen to minimal techno. Memory Visit Memory - Prenzlauer Berg and you'll find things from the 30s to the 80s. Watch out for the backlash! Hipsters beware - you're not welcomed with open arms by every Berlin resident.
