On November 3rd the new album from Liima comes out. Called 1982, the first single (and title track) was written right here at the hotel!

Behind the
tree

We were really pleased to hear about an alternative film viewing platform where filmmakers can be paid fairly for their work. Even cooler that it was started here in Berlin by a Michelberger, our first ever event manager Nico who worked at the hotel in 2009 / 2010. Behind the tree is a streaming platform available in Germany for independent and arthouse films only. Users rent the film and can ()

The Odd Gig – Edition 5
Koehler

Our guest for the next Odd Gig is Bristol native turned Berlin local Koehler. His genre bending style has jungle roots with futuristic technoid crossover, often with a cinematically potent sound. We’re excited to see what he pulls out of the bag on Monday night! The Odd Gig is our monthly night where artists are invited to play the records they might not normally. Here’s Valentin Stip’s mix from the summer and Andi Toma’s from ()

Our Monday evening weekend ender will have a little live music this week, when Mega Bog AKA Erin Birgy drops in from New York to play a solo show.

The weather is not looking particularly BBQ ()
