The Daïquiri

History in a glass with classic Cuban flair. A cocktail with a heritage, the Daiquiri was born in the Cuban sugar can fields as a rum-lime-sugar refresher for workers in the hot tropical climate. It quenched the thirst of freedom fighters during the 1898 Spanish-American War, carried in terra cotta bottles into the high mountains. The Daiquiri was “civilized” by Jennings S Cox Jr and FD Pagliuchi who shook it up over ice. La Floridita made it a city drink, adding a sophisticated touch of maraschino liqueur. But it was novelist Ernest Hemingway who put it on the world cocktail map when he wrote: “My Mojito at Bodeguita. My Daiquiri at La Floridita.”

Emile [TILT!]

Spearhead of the TILT! parties in Europe, EM//E spins records wherever he goes : Berlin, Paris, London, Brussels, Lille, Copenhagen... and soon in your living room. More than a job, he has a passion (and some would say an obsession) for electronic music in all its kinds. And for your own acoustic comfort, wether you're wearing trainers, slippers or high-heels, EM//E plays with... passion : treble, medium and bass. Mostly bass.

The Rum Trader

The Rum Trader is probably among the oldest bars in Berlin and certainly one of the best kept secrets in town. The place is extremely small, but it is not rare to find the barkeeper dressed in a tuxedo. The bar owner has an extended knowledge of spirits and travels far for a rare rum. You'll find here an amazing variety of the best rums available. A must try treat.
