Rusty Nail & Peppermint in the Bar Tausend

Every few years I meet cheers Sara aus Frankfurt. Most of the evening begins in any good cocktail and ends, that we are in not have any disco will.

For this weekend, she reported to be 5 Years again, because they do business in Berlin next week habe.Schön, because I always intended nor otherwise, I was like this. The Solar and Bar at the Hotel Hafen Hamburg – in Hamburg, we went through so I decided, the Bar Tausend propose, since I have a) and may b) not long since been.

I could still remember, that the first time, when we were there, Pink Mojito was the lone top, So I stuck with it, what a great hand ( I know, that what I get is great ) but on the other hand, shame, because I miss so many other cocktails, which are also intended class.

We sat right at the bar, to watch the bartender at his work, and down repeatedly ask to harass him. One can learn something in every bar. So I learned eons ago by Uwe Christiansen his bar something about whiskey, although I was never a fan of whiskey…

In addition, I spoke with Sara and she suggested, but then to try a Rusty Nail. …Rusty Nail, I knew from my former determined yet and since 15 Years closed pub “Wisp” not dissimilar than the Mexicans, but in terms of sharpness only by a red chili pickled foods übertroffenes drink in Tabasco.

Far from, A Rusty Nail is made of single malt whiskey and whiskey and liqueur … And! actually tastes… However, it is not conducive to driving the car, So I appropriated more than half of the Rusty Nails Sara, thus saw the bombs before half alcohol and asked the attentive bartender for something “fresh, delicious, unalkoholischen”

I was a little surprised, as he poured champagne on some juice and peppermint…. (as did many amazing cocktails in the bar thousand “Pfefferminze inside” have…” But he assured me to task, he was alcohol free… Top. So I could walk normally after, WHILE Sara was actually light curves… With the two Rusty Nails has the friendly bartender but also really meant very friendly.

Zoe Delaythe evening then actually ended up at the Adagio…else if damals form Golden cut und form Bangaloo… :)… Oh, and with the above self-portrait in front of your own mirror in the morning at 4 or so


Cool People and Burlesque @ Philia Hong Kong

It reached me the following SMS, to me, unfortunately shortly after 20:00 could reach, I had my mobile network accidentally disabled:

Hello how are you? Hope you’re having Fun in HK so far! Come see us at Philia in lan kwai fong near Central tomoroow, we’ll be on about 10. Talk soon! Aimée xx

Hmmm “tomorrow” was now so today and “10” meant 20 Clock so a few minutes ago. Mist, but I still made my way to the Philia and it should be worth. Were here but all the cool people, I have been a little missing in Hong Kong. And they were there in the evening.

alive not dead hong kong

The Artist Event Company invited the motto Alive Not Dead Artist to a colorful evening, who would have done well in Berlin. Mn take a burlesque troupe, a good and fun live band, a good DJ and a pole Dancerin, seasoning this with a good announcer and an open Miki where everyone on his little project, or the next event may indicate.


These people, have exactly the FACT fun, yes what ever is evident throughout the same breed of people and a good cocktail bar in the verfrachte. Voila a good event. Could also originate from Inga's party kit…

philia hong kong

Nun ja, I shortly after 10 started, I missed all the numbers except one of VixensBurlesque, then the last one was not quite as, Burlesque as I imagine, but that did not matter, the lady was only a guest, came from Shanghai and showed a – not only Chinese-inspired – Number, although they looked more European to me… what they – I believe – was also.


The Philia itself is a purist stylish cocktail bar with not too expensive – for not too large cocktails. In fact, it was the first bar, in which I got a decent mojito… If know the men and women at La Bodeguita Del Medio… her brothers would tell you something in the spirit.

mojito @ Philia

Anyway the Chinese burlesque dancer followed by a 60s band Soul Live in the spirit of Jackson Vive, in which mainly the singer with the Afro distinguished himself by outstanding vocal power. I do not know if it was genuine African, but the voice was definitely – Real good.

Soul 60ies

Open Mike was also kind of exciting, while a girl on the show “Rocky Horror Picture Show” pointed to Halloween, explained to me the girl, that stood beside me, that she was the Janet there. It was a brief conversation, ob sie sich freiwillig die meistgehasste 😉 Rolle dort ausgesucht hätte. Had it. Another girl pointed to your action 24h Facebook, in which they are 24 Hours before Facebook and sat with all friends, had emerged as the contact – and her boyfriend all these (so painted the profile pictures to) exciting.

poledance philia

Was there anything else? Oh a pole dance number by a girl, that give the notice and therefore really had something to show. That was very impressive, as in the rest of the whole “Alive Not Dead” Event – especially by the audience, obvious that this monthly event obviously longs desperately and so goes along extremely well.


Top. Pity, I was undressed as, that would otherwise become once more funny, but even so it was pretty great.

La Bodeguita Del Medio – A la Hemingway Mojito

Mojito in La Bodeguita Del Medio der Cuba.

La Bodeguita Del Medio Hemingway

In the article on the La Floridita I mentioned already, or that two bars in Havana Cuba are quite, must have one u-n-e-d-b-i-n-g-t visited. Once the just mentioned and discussed here once just the bar.

La Bodeguita Del Medio mojito

It all has to do with, that here the alcohol and the women an affectionate writer, was still famous to, often drunk… Ernest Hemingway. Und getrunken hat is Mojito im La Bogeguita del Medio.

La Bodeguita Del Medio Havanna

THE exactly do all tourists also, the trip here to the bar to drink at Hemingway's footsteps. Even if it is actually a really nice bar, thus disrupting the tourists – I was also the one. Today, no one would simply set the bar so, because he would feel bestört of the masses at Mojito ordered visitors from around the world.

La Bodeguita Del Medio

Okay, I, as a self-confessed fan of Mojito urgently needed to look past here again and I should fly late afternoon in Havana and Cuba on the last day, führte mich der Weg noch einmal in Havannas Altstadt um am eigenen Gaumen zu erfahren, whether this is actually the best Mojito in the world would be made.

NO, will not. While Uwe Christiansen takes only the best mint, so, you take it in that bar niht as accurate. Minzstiele? No matter, so pure in one of the 50 prepared glasses, to a shot of prepared lime juice and a couple ice cubes and then the next…

La Bodeguita Del Medio cuba

Honestly, Chord Mojito maching does not make them better… Nevertheless, I must say, three year old Havana Club makes it a little softer and should be in fact standard, otherwise I can not give the title of the world's best Mojito La Bodeguita Del Medio. Sorry.

Cayo Largo Del Sur – Cuba

28.10.2009 – Cuba – Cayo Largo del Sur
Sol Club Cayo Largo – Strand, Relaxation, and all inclusive

Cayo Largo Del SurBeach and water – Cuba is also the

Okay and I am now as. Cayo Largo del Sur, images on the tropical paradise. Okay, not Cuba – or at least not normally Cuba. But as I said, it does not matter, again three nights to relax properly and all-inclusive full-eat, before heading back to Berlin.

Cocktailbar im Club Cayo Largo

All-inclusive, what a word, Breakfast, Lunch, Evening meal, between Cafe and Sandwiches at night. The lobby bar open 24 hours and free cocktails… But I had to try a little, until I found a good cocktail. Daiquiri does not go, Pina Colada and not a few others also only very limited. When mojito I had to find firstonce, Add some here that the bitter flavor… Also since Mojito bitter pro favor.. Then the tastes.

club cayo lago del sur

Well, Cayo Largo del Sur die sind is eben Hotels All Inclusive Resorts Touristen. Cubans there are at most as employees, but there are actually the sandy beach and crystal clear water. Suns, read, eat, sleep, eat, sun, eat, read. This is life in this resort. But that's what I wanted even a few days.

cayo largo del sur hotel

However, I must confess, me that the people here already partially (on the first night) get on your nerves. Noon already with rum in one hand and continuous at the bar… For this, a band must play Cubanische music for the whole day and uninterested people to smile please have… the poor. Although I have learned – they probably earn more than their compatriots (by tip) and they probably have free food – insofar as they are sure privillegiert. What can you say, I am also.


But what is quite clear, Cuba, this island is not truly. Even the small airport is more modern than the main airport, Cayo Largo del Sur die haben vier Sterne Hotels, Eating there is an abundance of, Power obviously also, abundant water from the tap, Kloimageräte and even satellite television. As an employee, I would guess I get a hatred, what is possible here and not in the ordinary Cuba. Guests will remember nothing of it.


Sol Cayo Largo is truly hard to distinguish from other all-inclusive resorts. The real Cuba is far away. But what the heck, I look in the evening at the surf into the sunset and feel good.
