This Monday, 26th of January, we’re very happy to have the wonderful Tobias Jesso Jr. playing here in our hotel. Even if he’s only at the very beginning of his career, he‘s definitely attracting a lot of hype on the internet and in his new base city Los Angeles. Maybe it’s because of his participation at the Late Show With David Letterman, or because of his private show in a kitchen of a flat, (…)
Thanks to everyone who came, gave and shared and made it such a memorable start to the new year!
Recently it became uncomfortable for us to be ordering our hotel t-shirts from a third-party supplier that we don’t really know. Then we said, “why not make our own ones and dig a little deeper”? So in the summer Julia Knüpfer joined our studio. Julia is an prize-winning fashion designer from Berlin whose focus on high-quality, timeless tailoring with an ethical twist matched our wish for the same. To those two (…)
This Wednesday (17.12) we welcome SomeKindaWonderful to the lobby to play. These fateful devotees of a tiny bar in the suburb of Cleveland, Ohio started their journey together during a late night improvised jam session. After a combination of excitement and way too many drinks, they woke up the day after with the urge to record those melodies…. and of course a big hangover! Most people move to LA to make their dreams (…)
This Sunday (14.12) the Michelberger will dress up in red and gold, bringing the full-on Christmas atmosphere to our courtyard and lobby; spicy Glühwein perfume, sweet Kaiserschmarrn aroma and pine forest fragrance all around. And as usual, music will play a big part. Do you remember the extraordinary opera singer who sang from one of our windows? Yes, Katinka Fogh Vindelev is coming back! She’s just been on tour with Efterklang but now she’s here with us with her (…)
Well… what can we say… it was a magical one. Thank you all! We recorded the whole thing, watch it here.
This Friday evening we welcome Empire Escape to the hotel for a lobby concert. Empire Escape is a new version of a band that already exists. As change is always a sign of evolution, the band members wanted to give a stronger emphasis to this moment, celebrating their new start with a brand new name. “The band Ikaria had to die to let Empire Escape live” they said… As the new name brings (…)
Last week a crew of eight Michelbergers went to New York to welcome our booze as it landed on American soil! There was our Victorian house in Ditmas Park, Doug’s platform in the sky, our 12-seater Ford E250, the Autumnal colours of Prospect Park, the Chelsea flower market, the big fish from The Farm on Adderly, the fresh beer from Justin’s new microbrewery bar Threes, Hans cleaning windows, Gerald preparing all (…)
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 (…)
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:
