This Monday, 26th of February, 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, hes 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, or maybe because his debut album includes big names in the independent music world. Whatever the reason is, it’s worth following this songwriter making his way into the music scene.

His debut album, Goon, is a collection of songs written at the piano in his living room in Vancouver and carried around to be produced in many studios in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Nashville. His music is sparse, simple, and beautiful.

Feel warmly invited at 7pm,

Your Michelbergers

Plush is Liam Hayes. Plush is a band. Liam Hayes is Plush. Liam Hayes is a songwriter.

Liam Hayes has been making music under his name or the alias Plush since the early 90’s and his new album Slurrup will be released tomorrow (13.01.15) on the Fat Possum Record label.

Nostalgic for the Sixties vibes, Liam is definitely a charismatic and eccentric character with a very strong cinematographic inclination. His psychedelic pop music sounds like a movie soundtrack and his vintage style reminds one of a retro TV series.

This is the reason why Roman Coppola became his fan and decided to included him in A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, to curate the soundtrack for the movie.

He’ll be playing for us this Saturday (17.01.15) in the lobby. Feel warmly invited from 8pm.

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 creative 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 principles, we’ve added a third. As she’s working as an integral part of our studio, we’re also adding the element of illustration. The clothes will be limited edition, creative pieces that you can wear, coming from the place where fashion and drawing meet.

Everything is designed here in the hotel.  The clothes are made locally, just outside Berlin. When we print on fabric, it’s done in Germany. We’ll use natural materials and where possible they’ll be organic. We aim to make things that look great, and last, for years.

We’ll work in a spontaneous way, following an idea that inspires us in the moment, to make a unique run of clothes or accessories, rather than being constrained by doing two seasonal collections a year.

We’re just about to release our first things and you can take a look next time you’re in the hotel. More to come…

From today, our Michelberger Forest & Mountain Herbal spirits can be delivered to any doorstep in the United States!

A month ago we walked into this tiny, hidden-away liquor corner store in Brooklyn, to find a world inside full of booze wonders. Run by a charming Indian guy who used to be programmer for IBM and then used his skills to build his own business around a product he loves: booze.

Now he’s become the biggest online distributor of high-quality and high-proof booze in New York and we’re excited to enrich his little kingdom with our herbal potions. 

So, anyone out there in the vast regions of the empire, beware and ready to order some Michelberger to your neighbourhood. 

A perfect Christmas present from ze Germans!

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 come true. In this case the singer, Jordy Towers took a reverse choice and retreated to the Midwest to find his path again after a failed record deal with a major label.

Reverse is also the name of their first song where the consequences of infidelity became the lyrics. After creating it, Jordy got the idea to play the song backwards and somehow it worked better, also mirroring his move from LA to Cleveland. He took the idea from a track of Nas and from Michel Gondry’s movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. As he said: “that path is reversed from what you would normally expect”.

SomeKindaWonderful’s album Rhinestone Melodies is the band’s reminder to themselves not to fall into a predictable or trendy future.

Feel warmly invited from 7pm.

Get a feel for them here.

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 solo project “I Am Now”, born from the desire to explore and understand the power of now on the musical scale.

She’ll be joined by two musicians, the Swedish saxophone player Otis Sandsjö and the man of her life, the Danish sound magician Jacob Kirkegaard.

The Nordic theme will continue with a performance by Hanna Mia, an Icelandic / Swedish Singer. She’ll be playing from her first full album Out Of Water, together with her Berlin based band. There are many collaborations on her new album and not only with musicians but also filmmakers and actors, such as Tómas Lemarquis.

The show starts at 17h. Looking forward to see you!
