The Swabian community of Schömberg is home to one of the world’s most prominent beard and moustache clubs. This is a story about facial hair and its consequences. It’s eight o’clock on a Friday evening, and I’ve got an appointment at Gasthof zum Plettenberg. Dark wood panelling adorns the inn’s walls and ceiling, and patrons are passing glasses of fresh draught beer across tables covered wit...

Welcome to the Union Square Cafe in downtown NYC

A restaurant with plenty of stories to tell

© Monkey 47

Around three years ago, the new Union Square Cafe began welcoming in guests not far from the spot where Danny Meyer opened his first restaurant in 1985. At the corner of 19th Street and Park Avenue, regulars and first-time visitors alike can still find what gave the place its sterling reputation, namely outstanding food and drinks. The restaurant, with its high ceiling and forest-green panelling, is decorated with a great many ...

Tales from the Black Forest -The Black Forest Piper

Bohemian Ram. Little Bumblebee

Bohemian Ram. Little Bumblebee. No, not pet names that aging married couples have for each other.

Scottish bagpipes are generally a familiar concept, but the Black Forest shepherd's pipe is less well known, although it was quite prevalent there at one time. When Helmut Moßmann gets out his bagpipes and h...

Sad but true

10 year anniversary

All right, we admit it: the idea of selling empty bottles is more than a little out there. Of course, that hasn’t halted our plans to do exactly that for our 10-year anniversary. The circumstances that gave rise to the idea are at once sad and alarming. In biological terms, we humans are also primates – but not one of the 283 species that are currently threatened with extinction. Indeed, our kind...

Peachy’s

Celebrate in Chinatown (New York)

© Monkey 47

Welcome to Peachy’s – No Photos, No Fighting. The message conveyed by the neon sign above the door seems reasonable enough, and we did our best to act accordingly during our last visit – except for the part about photos, of course. This bar is just too remarkable not to be captured on film for everyone else to see. It’s probably the combination of sophistication and attention to detail that immediat...

2y03: Vienna – Monkey 47, apricots and poppy

© Discodöner

The art of distillation goes hand in hand with chasing aromas and rendering them in liquid form – although alcohol is merely the medium, not the actual goal of the process. Meanwhile, the world of spirits is divided into categories rather than sensory components and the possibilities associated with them. It’s a form of conditioning that stands in contrast to our obsession with variety and innovation. Why do distillates and spir...
