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. An independent film maker, originally from France, he first became known for his revolutionary way of filming bands with his Blogotheque ‘Take Away’ (…)

Tomorrow (29th Jan) our Bar Food Friday is back and this time we’re doing Buffalo & Whiskey. The idea is that we bring the restaurant to the bar for a night and serve up some killer dishes based on an ingredient theme and made with the very best produce available then paired with some great craft booze from the bar. This time we’re showcasing the products of our excellent buffalo farmers Bobalis. The animals there are bred (…)
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. What make them even more special is the enthusiastic and positive attitude to life and music they have. They´re definitely a (…)
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.

For a while we have been looking for a way to optimise the sound quality in our restaurant without compromising on the looks. But as much as the eye eats, so does the ear. The result is pretty astonishing. Thanks to the Siberian sound professor Alexander from Schubert Studio and our creative boss Azar. Come and see and hear!
True, there’s usually no shortage of musical events in Berlin on any given night. But they can sometimes blend into one another, in the usual venues with the usual format. And that’s why we can’t wait to see what our friend André de Ridder (that’s him on the far left), along with Stargaze, the musical ensemble he founded, have planned for next week. Over three days, they will present a (…)
