As the world begins to reopen, we thought it was only necessary that we put together a compilation of must see destinations. We got in touch with some of our international friends and asked them about their favourite places to visit in their city!
Get your pen and paper ready and add these best kept secrets to your bucket list.
Imagine a place that combines rogue cinema, gastronomy, cocktails, concerts and the most varied cultural encounters … that is SALA EQUIS! It contains the remains of an old-world cinema.
Café del Art
What makes this place a go-to is the fact that it’s pet friendly — it is so hard to find a place to bring your dog in Madrid! Plus the coffee, it’s great.
The best Spanish tortillas I have eaten!! There is no other explanation — the taste of these Spanish tortillas make you forget any problem you have.
La Station – Gare des Mines
La Station is a club that has been converted into an all purpose party space. Sometimes it’s a contemporary art exhibition space and other times it’s a concert hall — mostly playing garage rock and underground electro music.
Candelaria is a popular bar that offers some of the best Mexican cocktails and food in Paris. There is an unmarked door in the taqueria that leads to a relaxing cocktail lounge. It’s quirky and full of character.
Robert et Louise
Robert et Louise is my favourite restaurant. It is an authentic tavern with an open fireplace and rustic furniture. It is most well known for its fine meats and traditional wood-fire home cooking.
Go here for brunch and get the crispy rice! SQIRL is a hip cafe that features a global inspired breakfast and lunch menu in a beautifully minimalist space.
The Hammer Museum
It never disappoints. The Hammer Museum is known for its artist-centric and progressive array of exhibitions and public programs. The museum showcases a collection of historical works and special exhibits of edgy contemporary art.
Located in Venice…mmm their breakfast burrito! Superba is an industrial-chic cafe and bakery with a Californian flare including breakfast, bread and baked goods!
Ristorante da Giacomo
One of the most typical Milanese restaurants — amazing food in a very classy location. A place you must go to and eat if you are in the city.
One of the best museums in the city where you can always find a great selection of pieces. The museum is mainly dedicated to contemporary art, photography, cinema, architecture and philosophy. It also has a bar designed by Wes Anderson where I love to have breakfast on a Sunday morning before starting the tour of the museum.
Historical bar of Milan where some of the most iconic Italian drinks have been invented.
My favourite place to visit is the Archipelago of Gothenburg. You travel there on public transport and by boat to islands outside of Gothenburg. These islands are small picturesque fishing villages with freshly caught seafood and a breathtaking view of barren rocks and the sea.
Zamenhof Public Hall
Zamenhof Public Hall is an all day fancy dive bar with a nice vibe. It is usually packed with happy people, nice food, great drinks, arcade games and good music.
Lindholmen Street Food Market
Lindholmen Street Food Market is filled with different restaurants every Saturday in an old shipyard building with a cool industrial vibe. You buy tickets which you then trade for small portions of really good food and drinks. The food trucks and local beer breweries are all there, so make sure you go there hungry, as you have a lot to choose from!
Style. Substance. Simplicity.
