Scorpios

Mykonos, Greece

© Carolin Saage

Nestled in its own peninsula on the southern part of the island Mykonos houses Scorpios, a lifestyle commune where rustic meets chic. A zen retreat by day and mystical club scene by night, we ensure you that 24 hours at this establishment won’t be enough time.

If you decide to pay Scorpios a visit during the high season, here are a few helpful tips for a more enjoyable stay:

  • If you don’t want to pay for the use of the beach-front day beds, try to score a table on the club’s wooden deck facing the ocean. The view is just as breathtaking. They fill up quick, so either get there early or have one of the waiters reserve it for you!
  • If you wish to dine at the restaurant for either lunch or dinner, which we highly recommend, make sure to call before-hand and make a booking. Alternatively, they have a delicious bar menu that can be ordered from any area of the venue.
  • The big party day/nights are on a Sunday, so if you’re not into crowds avoid this day, otherwise make a reservation as it’s their busiest day of the week.

DESIGN

Macramé

During our latest visit to Greece, we fell in love with macramé, the art of knotting string and rope to create decorative elements and objects. From jewellery to carpets and hammocks, the macramé technique can be used to make anything.

If you love this art form as much as we do, check out @marymakerstudio, @niromastudio, and @reformfibers on Instagram to view and purchase incredibly intricate hand-knotted objects and wall hangings.

FOOD

Zenkichi

Berlin, Germany

This Izakaya-style restaurant is located in the Mitte district of Berlin, but from the moment you enter the bamboo forest with its intimate dimly lit spaces and dark interior, you might think you were actually in Japan. In a city full of well-priced food, Zenkichi certainly isn’t the most affordable dining option, but well worth it for the authentic dishes, unique setting and attentive service.

Reserve one of the private booths and order the mouth-watering black miso cod. You won’t regret it.

ART/MUSIC

Damien Hirst's "Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable"

Venice, Italy

Mind-blowing, provocative, controversial. If you’re in Venice before December, head to the magnificent Palazzo Grassi to marvel in Damien Hirst's "Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable" Exhibition. The sheer scale and cost of the works is mind-boggling and justifies the €18 entry fee.

Make sure you go to the other half of the exhibit at Punta Della Dogana, which is also included in the ticket price.
