From teen stardom to leaving his hometown in New Zealand, R&B musician Noah Slee has found his creative community in Berlin.
Art galleryTeufelsseechaussee 10, 14193 Berlin, Germany
"A nice day trip to get some peace and quiet is Teufelsberg. It's a little bit out of Berlin, but the walk up to the top of the hill is beautiful. It used to be a spy tower during the war, and it's kind of been taken over by graffiti artists so the whole thing is like a gallery. You can climb up to the top and see the whole city. You might see some wild boars on the way. If that happens, walk the other direction!"
Chinese restaurantSeestraße 41, 13353 Berlin, Germany
"Over the last few years in Berlin there’s been some new Asian restaurants pop up but Lei's Küche in Wedding is one of my favorites. They have everything, but they make mainly authentic Chinese food. I love going there and also having a cold beer. You can eat outside, all the dishes are amazing and there's a huge menu so you can always try different things."
ParkGörlitzer Str. 3, 10997 Berlin, Germany
"Take a stroll through Görli [Görlitzer] Park. There's always something going down there, whether it be buskers or just someone reading poetry. The great thing about Berlin is you can drink pretty much everywhere. So we'll definitely pick up a beer from thespäti[convenience store] and kick it in the park and drink a beer."
Pizza restaurantPaul-Lincke-Ufer 39-40, 10999 Berlin, Germany
"Cross over to Kreuzberg and pick up a pizza for lunch at ZOLA. They are really tasty and they also always kill it."
Record storeGrünberger Str. 54, 10245 Berlin, Germany
"HHV always have a nice selection and have amazing hip-hop records, which take me back to my childhood. I love having tangible records from hip-hop legends. What's amazing is that they also sell kicks, so we’ll check out some shoes too."
Coffee shopChausseestraße 36, 10115 Berlin, Germany
"19grams is amazing. Pick up a flat white with oat milk and maybe a croissant. They kill it."
