Welcome to the
real Grüne Woche

This weekend the city is celebrating its first Stadt Land Food Festival! The founders of Markthalle IX in Kreuzberg take the streets. Here is what they say: “Good food is a feast. Good food needs a festival. From October 2–5, 2014 Stadt Land Food takes the celebration of food out of the Markthalle and onto the streets with a four day packed program of markets, workshops, congresses, street food and ()

The Wild
Garden

If you’ve eaten with us in the last months, you may have noticed that your plate has taken a bit of a walk on the wild side; herbs, salads, vegetables, flowers that definitely don’t look like they’ve come off a supermarket shelf. As someone quipped over their salad one day, “it feels a bit like eating a garden”… Twice a week we take delivery of vegetables and herbs from Roberto ()

Wooden Arms
Concert

This Wednesday evening (17.09.14) we are very happy to welcome Wooden Arms, who’ll play a concert in the hotel. The founder of the band is Alex Carson. He’s the composer, pianist, and vocalist of the group, and also a piano teacher in his private life. Because of his classical background, Alex decided to combine his orchestral compositions with contemporary melody and he’s found the perfect match using a modern style of songwriting. Their debut ()

The Arcade Fire
Aftershow

One hot, wild night during Tiki Taka, Arcade Fire played their after show party in the courtyard. Win took over the decks, Sarah mesmerised with her violin and Richie, Will, Jeremy and Tim came on and punked it up as the Phi Slamma Jamma boys. Take a flashback below:

I love it when a
plan comes together

Good things happen often happen spontaneously at the hotel. An ordinary Saturday evening can suddenly turn into a fully emotional one. The plan for Saturday was this: the restaurant will prepare it’s healthy, tasty food, Volker will wipe and spin his records and the bartender will shake his old-fashioned cocktails. But suddenly our friend Pete Kartsounes decided to give us a bluesy, folky, funky show with his smoky voice. But suddenly ()

Tiki Taka Thanks
for the Memories

THANK YOU to all the people who made our summer: to everyone who came and brought along their skills and cooked and played and sung and spun. To all the people who came and watched the show and ate and drank and danced and screamed. To all the staff who made it happen. To the boys who brought the trophy home. Thank you even to the rain showers that kept ()

Gone Tropical
Pop Up Shop

Today and tomorrow our friend Jacques is back in the hotel with his pop up shop. This year he’ll share the shop with other three designers: Fa, Enrique and Malakai.
