You had us from the get go, clutching our hearts and smiling at strangers. Here’s the video and some photos from the show
Little Scream – AKA Montreal based multi-instrumentalist, writer, and visual artist Laurel Sprengelmeyer – has just released her second album, titled Cult Following. And on Tuesday 28th June she’ll be bringing her own brand of grand-scale indie pop to the hotel for a show in our courtyard. Her music is lush and expansive and draws heavily on personal experiences – one of them being growing up “in a kind of Christian religious (…)
This Saturday we will welcome the band Zmei3 to our courtyard, for the launch of their debut album, Rough Romanian Soul. It’s going to be an extra special night for us, as the lead singer of the band is our very own Michelberger, Paula. She is a classically trained opera singer who has returned to her Romanian roots with Zmei3. She also works in our bar, and you can read a (…)
Homie is an evening and an idea thought up by Alexei Versino and Luigi di Vinere, two Berlin based DJ’s. They realised what a fortunate position they were in, being acquainted with and surrounded by some of the best DJs in the business here in Berlin. For Homie, artists are invited to share the music they listen to at home. Their private collection; some of their gems not usually played (…)
We are more than a little excited to welcome composer and violinist Sarah Neufeld back to the hotel next Wednesday evening 18 May. Sarah is a recording and touring member of Arcade Fire as well as Bell Orchestre, but is currently on a solo tour of Europe after the release of her second solo album, The Ridge. When we were building the hotel in 2008, we listened to a lot (…)
Thank you Bo and Lasse of I’m a KOMBO, and their helpers Ditte and Mie, for bringing your re-imagined Döner Shop to the hotel. With sugar salted chicken, lobster salad, grilled asparagus and pickled onions, it was unlike any Döner we’ve had before! And who doesn’t love toasting their dessert on a stick afterwards!?
To all the artists, guests and staff that made our 24 hour Piano Day concert so special, we thank you. We’ve just received the video our friend Stephan from Hauskonzerte made, and it was worth the wait. Here it is, as well as some photos we took.
Starting tomorrow (4th May) and for the next 6 weeks only we’re turning our restaurant upside down. Firstly we’re refurbishing our kitchen to bring it up to the level of the cooking. Secondly, whilst doing so, we decided to have some fun along the way: We’ll stay open for dinner with our pop-up Bangkok street-style courtyard kitchen, Pacific Rim. Alan and his team will throw volcanic fire rocks onto the menu (…)
On Saturday 7th May, we’ll welcome Alfredo Fiorito to the hotel. Alfredo is a DJ from Ibiza with a 40 year career behind him. At the age of 63, he is widely regarded as the Father of Balearic Beat. In the mid 80s Alfredo started a party at what was then the relatively small and underground club called Amnesia, being one of the first to bring Chicago House and German (…)
Next Thursday 5th May, Lasse Askov and Bo Lindegaard of I’m a KOMBO will be joining us once more from Copenhagen, and bringing with them their Döner Shop. Lasse and Bo are chefs, and they prepare food for folks to eat. However the approach they take and the way they think about the possibilities of how this can be done is what makes them so interesting. It’s a bit hard to describe exactly what (…)
