Living Vintage In Berlin: Hula Hoop Cafe In Charlottenburg

For any fan of Rockabilly or the 1950s, Hula-Hoop in Charlottenburg is definitely the place to be. Decked out with original kidney tables, cocktail chairs and pastel-colored tulip lamps lends the cafe an overall fab-50s-vibe.

Run by a husband and wife team who have been avid 50s rockabilly style collectors for years, the cafe has been put together with lots of love and care. You can sip a nice, frosty banana milk shake while listening to Peggy Sue Got Married on the vintage 1960s jukebox.

There is also a shop attached to the cafe, so if you've ever wondered how you might look in a poodle skirt, this is the place to finally give it a try. They also sometimes host concerts and, if you come in a petticoat, you get it for free. Golly gee, Hula-Hoop is simply out of sight! ;)
