When we first heard about our The National friends Ben, Scott and Bryan LNZDRFing us, we had very little idea what to expect. With excitement and awe we are awaiting the trilogy of performances in Grüner Salon (23rd Feb), Kantine am Berghain (25th Feb) and Cassiopeia (26th Feb). This music gets you. It sticks…the dreaminess, the tempo and the deeply hidden underlying positivity…. music that makes you feel good although you don’t (…)

Vincent is in town to participate in the CTM Festival which this year is on the theme ‘New Geographies’. So this Friday we’re delighted to welcome him back to the hotel for a spontaneous live performance in the lobby. For those that don’t know Vincent Moon, well, he’s a true one-off.

This time we’re showcasing the products of our excellent buffalo farmers Bobalis. The animals there are bred (…)

At the moment we have one office space available with 2 rooms of equal size with space for 6 desks each. The room can also be divided into 2 separate offices. The gross square meters: 100 or 50 per (…)
Iska Dhaaf, literally “let it go” in Somali, is an pure art-oriented duo. In pursuit of honesty, Benjamin and Nathan dedicate entire nights to their music production, not seeing the daily light for weeks. Inspired by Sufi poetry, their words are powerful and essential, while their rhythms are heavy and unsteady.

After previous years of colourful, grand celebrations, this NYE, we’re focusing on the main ingredients: food, drinks and great company. The kitchen will be making a feast made from produce from this year’s favourite suppliers and serving it all in platters that are meant for sharing. There’ll be local vegetables from the Roberto’s natural farm just outside Berlin, sea food from the North Sea and venison from Brandenburg and plenty else besides. Come alone, (…)
Thanks to Matze & Pierre from Mit Vergnügen for celebrating a lovely Christmassy evening with us. And of course, big thanks to all the musicians! Here are some impressions, sketched by Alexandra Klobouk.
On a chilly night a couple of weeks back, the lobby was warmed by the soaring and beautiful voice of Aidan Knight. Here’s the video we made of the concert.
