Zum Grünen Gaul means "The Green Horse” and the interior is modern and chic, but still not too ostentatious. The dark colors and the dimmed light create a cosy atmosphere.

If you go there on Mondays, you’ll find a lot of people from the industry sharing bottles and stories. The food is a kind of very elevated bar food, with small plates and charcuteries. The place is run by two Austrian kids who are very interactive, fun and good looking. Just a great place to hang out!

    When Cordobar opened its doors in 2013, Berlin only had a couple of wine bars to offer. After five years of leading the way in the wine bar scene, Cordobar became Cordo – a restaurant. Same location, same atmosphere but a different concept. The restaurant has now left the sharing concept that it started with, and is instead offering a five-course and an eight-course menu, with a wine selection that is unique to Berlin.

    Address: Wilmersdorfer Straße 93, Berlin

    The Kurpfalz Weinstuben in Berlin at Adenauer Platz have been around for over 80 years, not least thanks to their consistently traditional orientation. After the Second World War, they were a popular meeting place for the stars of old West Berlin. In 1975 Rainer P. S. Schulz, restaurateur from Hamburg, took over the place for 30 years and ran it like a “Village from the Pfalz in Berlin” with a passion for wine. Since 2015, Vincenzo Berényi, a trained sommelier but above all a real innkeeper, continues and expands the vinophile passion. This is the way we love it as guests!

    Address: Klosterstraße 42, Rinteln

    Located in the old town of Rinteln, half way between Bielefeld and Hannover, and a short walk from the Weser River, Hotel Stadt Kassel has a long and rich history. It all began in the middle of the 18th century with a small guest house for travelers, in the half-timbered house where the restaurant is still located today. With the passage of time, the cuisine has developed from “good home-style” to a lighter, fresher cuisine where seasonal dishes play the main role.
