We met with our Music Partners in Eaux Claire. Blowing the dust towards Berlin…. Here are the ingredients for a fine festival: Golf carts to chase around the grounds. A creative director who is able to chat about everything 24 hours before showtime. Performer that no one has ever heard of, and blows everyone’s mind. Orange dressing rooms… maybe not.

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.
