We enjoyed hosting the Whiskey Room Kino so much over Christmas time, we’ve decided to keep it going. We’re doing so together with Behind the Tree, a streaming platform available in Germany for independent and arthouse films. It’s a platform not only with great films but one that ensures the filmmakers are paid fairly too. Ask for directions to the Whiskey Room at reception, and pick yourself up a drink from the bar on (…)

Thoughts, thought very often, became beliefs, and those in a bundle become belief systems.

Get well soon Volker!

In the small hours of Saturday morning, a beautiful new, all-the-mod-cons, proper cocktail bar emerged from the dust!
