Cortex is great, not super cheap but a good selection of stuff. Heavy on the hardcore, thats its focus. If you find yourself a little further over in prenzlauerberg (danziger str.) then Vopo is my favourite. There are a couple more around there but those are the 2 main punk ones

Vopo is the best one for sure - Coretex is mainly for tourists. There are also two records stores worth to mention near Hermannsplatz in Neukölln (good if you look for used records). Forget the names but just walk around the Hasenheide and you will find them. Don't forget to support the dope dealers and buy some weed in the Park ... (But only from black people otherwise you got in trouble, the moroccan are flashy and wicked)

I'm taking Mrs Murkt to Berlin. Anyone have any recommendations on what to do aside from the standard sites?

do not visit the hardrock cafe....
It was the first time I had problems placing my order.
First call was in german of course, second one in english (ever seen a german placing an order in germany in english???)
Thrid and final one was from my co-worker in spanish..., and it worked.
Cocktail was the worst I ever got in a HR cafe.

Even if the weather isnt that good you should visit this:

I / we spent the most time drinking, so I can't name a good place to eat... :D
My co-worker recommended some places, but I barely remember.

edit: the Maredo Steakhouses were always good for a nice piece of meat though.
oh and I almost forgot this one: https://www.google.de/maps/place/Dicke+ ... 42!6m1!1e1
Even on working days you will have to make a reservation, but it's worth it! :D :youlikethis:
http://dicke-wirtin.de/

at the south west corner of the savigny platz there's an italian restaurant which has pizza and pasta happy hour, at least the pizza is pretty good there.

For a really good but not cheap cocktail go to the bar of the Hotello K'80s right around the corner. Thats where we used to start and never got out... :D :oops: :roll: ...also it's a really good hotel. ;)

Vopo Records and Coretex Records. I prefer Coretex, but you can really score some nice and fair-priced records @ Vopo.

... if you have too much money - hhv is at least 10% over price - you'll find nearly everything but you don't want to pay the price ..

best beer in town schalander or eschenbräu (but that's just my opinion)
