Here we go with the presentation of the last HUGO Hot Location. You can still unlock the special deals at the HUGO Hot Locations on foursquare until Saturday night (January 28, 2012). Make sure you do – there are some great offers waiting for you! And now, let me introduce BRUT:
The idea for a “vespers” bar – “vespers” meaning a regional between-meal snack platter – had been simmering on the back burner for a long time in the minds of Hessian-born Hanno Bäucker (owner of the design agency vektorfarm and the Mazooka T-shirt label, and co-founder of Best Shop), Frederike Ruhl (former Motor FM moderator) and the French architect Maud Cassagne (owner of the former systM gallery & bar). “We missed having a place in the Mitte district that was simple and unpretentious. A nice bar where you could meet with friends, have an aperitif, start the evening with a cocktail, or savor a fine wine. A kind of base for us, a place we felt at home. That’s why we also thought of serving traditional vespers platters. After all, in both Germany and France, regional ‘vespers’ are a familiar tradition, a true classic.”
Personal backgrounds play into the palette of drinks as well. Whether it’s the sparkling Riesling from the Palatinate region or a Côtes du Rhône Chateau Gigognan: every choice of wine is special. Most are made by small, select vintners along the Franco-German border.
Hessian hospitality, French savoir-vivre, a personal touch and an unassuming air make Brut a true gem in Berlin’s new nightlife district.
