Recently I had the opportunity to eat at Blend Berlin Kitchen and bar. I got aware of Blend Kitchen and bar as I saw the very cool interior design of the restaurant on Instagram so I was curious to try it out myself.

It was designed by the Sundukovy Sisters studio in Moskau and inspired by the Zoo nearby that explains the giant Zebra in the restaurant.

Blend Berlin Kitchen – Conclusion
We had a very nice evening at Blend Berlin. On opposite to cities like London and Paris it is not that common to have drinks or food in hotel bars and restaurants in Berlin but it was a very nice experience and it did not feel like we were among tourist. The atmosphere was relaxed and sophisticated at the same time.
