Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg, Visiting friends

Visiting Friends: Mark Heinisch

May 18, 2019

This is the door to Badfish Bar in Prenzlauer Berg. Never have I stepped inside and left sober. Yes, once, when I passed by only to use the bathroom. On Wednesday I had a meeting with my friend Mark to take pictures of him behind the bar. How do I know Mark? We met some years ago in the Friedrichshain café Silo, owned by his boyfriend James, where we had an instant crush and decided to become friends.

I got there early to get some daylight, the bar is very dark and cozy. Do you see the illustration of me on Mark’s arm? A result of one of those famous nights in Badfish. You could say we bring out the best and worst in each other. Depends on who you ask.

Badfish has a great selection of booze and slush machines with frozen whiskey sours & margaritas. The bar is like a nighttime kindergarten for grown-ups. Well, isn’t that what bars are in general?

Already tipsy.

Sandra, you need another Guinness!

As proper Guinness as you can get outside of Ireland. Cheers!

Thanks for having me, Mark. I left with 5 pints of Guinness inside of me. By the way, there is a relatively new Badfish in Friedrichshain as well. Great, down-to-earth bars where you meet a lot of fun and interesting people. I have made a lot of friends thanks to those places.

Drink responsibly. Not saying that I do, though.
