Chance the Rapper collaborates with Starbucks to promote Starbucks’s ‘Ready to Drink’ canned and bottled coffees with the help of a TikTok campaign, with prizes including a one-on-one video moment with Chance. And an idea to save energy by storing your vegetables in ‘The Groundfridge’. Great idea for chefs who have their own vegetable garden.

We couldn’t find more information yet, but we spotted on the Instagram page of The Avocado Show that they are opening a location in London this summer! We wish their team a lot of success with the opening.

Inspiration for municipalities from Tokyo, the Nippon Foundation launched a new toilet facility as part of ‘THE TOKYO TOILET’ which makes toilets much more accessible to the public. Very handy especially if all restaurants and bars are closed, like during the pandemic!

Another Spritz Bar in combination with a Pizza Parlour; Piazza by the Pier in London. Will the Spritz Bars al fresco be the hit of this summer? And Lay’s chips opened a non-existent restaurant to introduce Amsterdammers to a menu consisting of three iconic Lay’s flavoured chips with names like the fast food giants KFC, Subway and Pizza Hut.

A Pop-Up Bike Experience of WeWatt X Ovamo was held in Antwerp on the Grote Markt. It might be a great idea as a bar or coffee bar to place a few WeWatt cycling tables to encourage exercise? And Vapiano’s Germany will go #Pinsa. They will gradually eliminate the classic pizza from its menu. The dough of the Pinsa is fluffier than the conventional pizza dough and also more digestible.

Mariposa Negra Bar in Barcelona | A new disruptive cocktail bar concept

16-6-2021

  • The team of the Mariposa Negra Bar
  • The interior of the Mariposa Negra Bar
  • The interior of the Mariposa Negra Bar
  • Cocktails with a story - Mariposa Negra Bar
  • 3D printen glasses at the Mariposa Negra Bar

The first cocktail bar in the world to use 3D printing and laser printing technology recently opened in Barcelona, Spain. They take the word ‘artisan’ to another level, as they created almost everything in the bar by themselves, like the bar, back bar, tables, decorations, lamps, signs, plates, ceramic picks and more. They even have their own molding techniques to create their own ceramic glasses. Each drink has a really long process of preparation because many liqueurs, juices, bitters and other drinks are made by the bartenders. Thus creating cocktails with very unique and balanced flavours. The name and place are inspired by the mysterious fantasy world of Marina’s novel, written by the great Spanish writer, Carlos Ruiz Zafón.

A spot in Barcelona to visit if you’re a cocktail lover! It’s located in Plaça de les Olles, in the heart of the Born Quarter, a neighborhood known for its gastronomy, art and its streets full of life.

  • BARDEUM app by Museum Edutainment - Colosseum
  • BARDEUM app by Museum Edutainment - Circus Maximus

With Museum Edutainment’s new mobile app BARDEUM: “don’t just see the sites; step inside their stories”, visitors can go beyond dry boring facts on tiny plaques at museums & historical sites and step inside educational & entertaining stories. Guided by the world’s best storytellers, users become part of intrigues, deceptions, and fascinating events of the past. The BARDEUM app by Museum Edutainment is free on iOS and Android. Experiences range between $3.99 and $4.99 per download.

Will these kind of mobile apps be the future of history? We really like the idea of walking around a memorial, a park or historic site and listening to stories from the past told by storytellers. Just think of all the beautiful stories one can write and tell about Amsterdam for example. And if told by influencers it might even be popular with very young people! The fact that you can download the app for free and only have to pay for the experiences is another great push to start listening to stories from the past.
