Zagreus Projekt, a place where art inspires food, is essentially an art gallery offering multi-course gourmand dinner housed in a quaint basement room behind a traditional centuries-old Berlin town house.

Go unabashed, let off your guard, toss on some slinky attire and shindig away at the chic profligate night club, Insomnia, once an olden ballroom.

The Bar jeder Vernunft, a warm, art-personified mirrored gazebo with wooden interiors and scarlet velvety touch is worth a trip for the feel of lavish, alluring cabaret with a heart-rending end to the tuneful set as one can indulge in some snifter or a dinner prior to the show.
