KINDL - Center for Contemporary Art Kunst vom Fass

When big-time brewers Berliner Kindl moved out of this red-brick behemoth in Neukölln, you just knew it wouldn’t take long for the building to be reclaimed and repurposed Berlin-style. Now set to be a multi-cultural, multi-purpose home to a diverse array of contemporary art, the Brauerei is enlivened once more. Kicking things off with a bang, the first space to be reopened is the 20-metre high Boiler House, showcasing a full-size airplane suspended in a perpetual nosedive—a site-specific installation from Roman Signer. The monstrous metal beer stills that punctuate the main hall and the three-storey Power House are behind closed doors for now but watch this space… KINDL has some big things a-brewing.

Syreni Śpiew If you go down to the woods today... featured

Searching for another location, the founders of Warszawa Powiśle sniffed out an old truffle in the forest and turned it into an absolute belter of a bar. It’s a pearl of modernist architecture, spread over three floors and hidden away from the street so they can afford to really ramp up the sound system – as they did for the seismic opening bash that rang in the year 2012.

Style and sophistication are the code words here, yet the atmosphere stays chilled and unpretentious. Catering for a well-heeled clientele, Syreni Śpiew packs enough whiskies to make a Scottish baron blush and their cocktails, served by bow-tied gentlemen no less, aren’t to be missed either. At the weekend, live musicians blast out a few numbers before the DJs muscle in and take control of the floor.
