Zum Grünen Gaul is a lovely, cosy and rustic wine bar located in the heart of Bochum in the “Ruhrgebiet”, created by Five and Franz Ferdinand - the owners of the Livingroom. 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. The food served in the bar is local, organic German dishes in a bar format – what we love to call German soul food!

Wyno is a wine bar located in the back of the Bulle Bakery in Düsseldorf’s hip Flingern neighbourhood. To find it, you must go into the backyard of the Bakery and the gallery Sammlung Philara. You will see no signs, but the entrance is under the neon blue Glas Lennarz sign. Wyno has no wine list but offers some wines written on a blackboard. There are also some cured meats and cheese served with the Bulle Bread (arguably the best bread in town). The exciting part about this hidden gem is that they do not offer a written list for the bottle selection, but instead a selection “of the moment”....
