THANK YOU to all the people who made our summer: to everyone who came and brought along their skills and cooked and played and sung and spun. To all the people who came and watched the show and ate and drank and danced and screamed. To all the staff who made it happen. To the boys who brought the trophy home. Thank you even to the rain showers that kept us all on our toes. Let*s hug it out :)

Here’s a little look back at some of those moments:

Over the last month we’ve been living through colourful Tiki Taka times. And one of the great stars of the show was the food!

From tattooed pork to pickled gherkins to herbal salads to spätzle to snobrød to frozen margaritas to flammkuchen to foraged flowers to vertical buffets to cured salmon to fermented borscht, our kitchen team has been collaborating with our friends from London, Copenhagen, Warsaw and Berlin to produce food of great quality, freshness and originality, food full of fun, prepared healthily, which made us all feel alive and got us through the long nights of concerts and nail-biting football. You can see for yourself below.

This was the very first time our restaurant had been open every night for an extended period and our kitchen team were so happy with its success and the energy and joy it generated within them, that it is their wish to keep that wonderful momentum going.

Now and onwards, our restaurant will be open not only for breakfast and lunch but also in the nights.

Tuesdays to Sundays, 7pm – 11pm.

Here is the current menu. Fresh, seasonal, organic produce prepared and combined with love.

reservations: +49 (0)30 297 78590, reservations@michelbergerhotel.com

This Thursday (10th July), we’re very happy to welcome The Group to the hotel.

The Group means improvising the music and playing together with the audience.

This collective is made up of a group of very of experienced musicians who have built successful careers with their other projects, such as Efterklang. It consists of:

Casper Clausen, Greg Haines, Martyn Heyne, Francesco Donadello, Peter Broderick, Andrea Belfi, Anne Müller and Jóhann Jóhannsson.

One of the fascinating things about this band is that the group is always evolving and developing. The members vary and so every show is unique and unrepeatable, every song never heard again. Their sound alternates between a complex, crazy poly-rhythmical structure and quiet moments. Every show is based on improvisation so that the audience can be part of the creative process of building up a song from the very beginning.

Stagetime 8pm. Unmissable.

On Wednesday evening (9th July) Ringbell, also known as the Chikara Aoshima Band will play for us.

Chikara Aoshima and Rieko Okuda founded the group. They have a similar backgrounds which took them both here because of their attraction to the Berlin music scene.

Chikara started playing drums as a teenager in Japan and he lived, studied and performed in the US and moved to Berlin only recently. Rieko started off with classical music at the age of just 3 and she moved to the US to study jazz and then to Berlin to mix her classical and jazz background with electronic music.

Their project combines ambient, dance electronic sounds with acoustic instruments. And their way of performing is like an improvised jam session.

Showtime 8pm.

The return of the Spätzle Legend!

Über 10 Jahre lang war das Gino`s das kulinarische Herz des Wrangelkiez. Ob nach dem Fussballspielen zu einer doppelten Portion Spätzle mit Speck, oder zu Baustellenbesprechungen auf ein Rollberg und Flammkuchen, Gino`s a bissl was geht da immer. Der Bartresen stets gehalten von Bekannten und politisch Verwandten, das Fruchtbrand Sortiment brachte Obstgartengefühle und die Waldwand weckte Kindheitserinnerungen.

Volker zieht nun weiter. Das Gino’s lebt in schönen Erinnerungen und Anekdoten weiter. Heute Abend wollen wir gemeinsam Spätzle essen und uns freuen über all das was war und kommen wird.

Seid herzlich im Namen von Volker und seinen Köchen eingeladen die alte Gino’s Karte zu geniessen.

This Monday evening (7th July), we have The Waves & Us playing in the courtyard.

Maayan is The Waves, Markus and Louis are Us. Maayan with her atmospheric backdrop and synths, Markus with his guitar and Louis with his bass. They came together because this was the way it was meant to be. This new project is an experiment, a way of bringing their different musical backgrounds together, trying to create something they never did before. It’s like a flashback to the new-wave era; Berlin in the 80′s with its screaming, distorted voices. But also a look back to the psychedelic rock season.

Get to know them in this video:

With this latest release Wolf + Lamb Records show once more that there are no limits to the musical genres that Gadi and Zev won´t explore and support.

Showtime 8pm.

Tonight we’re having a night of hip-hop, trumpet and soul with a night organised by our friend That Fucking Sara.

She’ll be DJ’ing accompanied by The Domenica live on trumpet who is classically trained and has been playing since early childhood. Currently based in Berlin, she plays in several bands and works as a dentist in her free time. Or the other way round.

Fae Simon will be joining us too. Fae’s a singer songwriter from London and has been touring Europe with Yarah Bravo & That Fucking Sara on the Good Girls Rarely Make History tour. Since then, she’s been making magic in the studio and is ready now to share some new material from her forthcoming project Outrospective. Following the success of Fae’s debut album Mellowdrama, we are looking forward to hearing familiar & fresh sounds from this multi-faceted vocalist. Take a listen to her Soundcloud.

Completing the line-up will be Neve Naive.

When Neve aka Miss Flint and Merse met in 2008 during a jam session, both were already fully equipped with tons of musical experience: Miss Flint made some noise as a singer (with the reggae band Jahcoustix and The Outsideplayers), as a background singer (for Laith Ladeen, Culcha Candela, Flomega etc). Merse is widely known for his trombone playing with the Jazzanova live band and The Ruffcats.

The chemistry between the two musicians was perfect straight away. Soon the original roles of who writes lyrics and who composes music blurred. Signed to the prestigious Berlin label Sonar Kollektiv, the duo make cranky, free-spirited, but still accessible pop music that absorbs with extremely up-close and personal lyrics. A record is like a good friend telling you stories of their life and adventures. Whether it’s of a cheery, thoughtful or confident nature – the most important thing is honesty and sincerity. And this sincere and dedicated way of making music is on display when Neve and Merse perform. And there is a new band member, guitarist David Gärtner.

The evening begins at 5pm in the courtyard.
