Up in the air in Neukölln
The bar Klunkerkranich is a perfect spot for a sundowner with live music and a dance floor. In the Neukölln Arcaden, take the elevator to the 5th floor and find your way through the parking lot to the rooftop bar/club and market (Floh-Kunst & Trödelmarkt).
For a fancy dinner, reserve a table at LAVANDERIA VECCHIA in Flughafenstraße 46, 12053 Berlin (Neukölln). Here you will dine a pre-defined menu with many delicious Italian dishes and delectable wines.

Bar night in Mitte
Spend a night at an awesome gay bar, SAINT JEAN BAR in Mitte. Small in size yet elegant, and with all its delightful details blended together into one picture. Close by are many dinner options, including one I personally love the MÄDCHENITALIENER, on Alte Schönhauser Str. 12, 10119 Berlin. After dinner you could go dancing at the CK Ballhaus, Chausseestraße 102, 10115 Berlin.

Having a drink in Kreuzberg
From May to September you can take a dip in this swimming pool of the BADESCHIFF that floats in the river. But all year long you can grab a drink at their beach bar and enjoy the view. However, another particular experience is to be found in FREISCHWIMMER. Here you can dine waterside on the wooden deck with a variety of options to choose from an eclectic menu.

Zoo Palast Berlin
The loving restored Zoo Palast reminds me of the Golden Age Cinema, with its imposing architecture, warm ambiance and impeccable service. Seven film halls, a cloakroom in the lobby, a film lounge and a cocktail espresso bar make a movie night to remember.
