AWEFEKT
PEOPLE JAM

Next Wednesday 13 September Jeremy Black and Trever Hagen return to the hotel to make some experimental analog electronic music together.

Both come from an improvisation background and we can expect Wednesday’s PEOPLE jam to be experimental and free form, ()

The weather is not looking particularly BBQ ()

Here we return to our series The Monkey Loooves – stories about some of our favourite places in Berlin doing things their own way. Last week we met with Steve Morris at R/D, the coffee shop and bar on Chauseestrasse of which he is manager and co-owner.

This Sunday 20th August, to celebrate the oven’s safe arrival in Berlin, Andy Benn and Nandish Neralahalli – both on our restaurant service team – are joining forces with chef Alan to serve up a range ()
