3 new Stores and Restaurants in Berlin accepting Bitcoins

While some countries or users are still skeptical about using Bitcoin (BTC) in business transactions, a person in Germany is starting to promote the widespread use of BTC as a new merchant system.

Joerg Platzer of Room 77, a restaurant that has become the epicenter of the Bitcoin community in Berlin (Germany), announce last week, the Bitcoin Kiez, a project to get a large number of businesses to accept BTC in Berlin’s Graefekiez district. (source bitcoin magazine).

Bitcoin Kiez has announced its first three participants:

  • Primo Maggio – as Rooom77′s Joerg Platzer describes it, “original Italian food at its best.” This restaurant features a wide variety of homemade sandwiches, antipasti, pasta and desserts, as well as a unique selection of drinks. It places a large emphasis on high-quality ingredients, writing on its website: “everyone who wants to share in our philosophy on good food are cordially invited to come to Primo Maggio on a journey of discovery. In our kitchen and our bar we allow only products which we stand behind. Our customers should only receive what we would take for ourselves, not only when we want to satisfy our hunger, but also our taste buds”.

  • Fabelhaft Bar – features some of the best cocktails in Berlin. As one review describes it, “entering the one-room space is like stepping into a gothic castle crossed with an underground bordello, with requisite fin-de-siècle lamps and old candles softly glowing above funky mismatched chairs, each casting soft shadows against the mostly barren and crumbling stone walls. Mondays through Thursdays, unkempt barflies mix with artsy expats and laid-back locals to exchange jokes and talk politics over cold brews or fresh cocktails, including the popular Moscow Mule made with cucumber, vodka, ginger ale, and hand-ground ginger.”

  • Vinyl Living Room Longplayer – a small and cozy used record store that is popular as a hangout spot for DJs even outside of Berlin. The shop features a large selection of hip-hop, funk, soul and jazz records and also some reggae, rock and punk, and many of the records that can be found there are difficult to find anywhere else. Although there is no food to buy here, it’s located on the Graefestraße almost right across the street from Room 77 itself.
