Bikini Building, Berlin
West Berlin re-establishes itself as a shopping destination
West Berlin re-establishes itself as a major shopping destination
Much has been made in recent years of the emergence of retail and restaurants in East Berlin. The redevelopment of the Bikini Building in the heart of West Berlin has continued this, as the area re-establishes itself as a shopping destination.
The top floor includes a large roof terrace which offers great views of the monkeys at the zoo, which seems to be a real crowd pleaser. Whilst key tenants include Berlin designers Mykita, Riccardo Cartillone and international labels such as Gant, Carharrt and Vans.
We were there during the opening weekend and whilst not all the tenants were open, the place was packed, I liked the scale which was compact compared to so many modern shopping centres and the energy and interest created by the pop ups and concept stores.www.bikiniberlin.de
