Traditions surrounding food and wine are deeply rooted in the culture of Georgia. The ultimate Georgian occasion is the supra, or feast, and on Sunday 22nd October we’ll hold our own version – a long and late lunch in the restaurant with some of our Georgian friends. A few months ago our wine director Emily travelled to Georgia to explore the rich and vibrant diversity in both food and wine (…)
Daniel Morgan flew in from Paris last week to cook for one night alongside our team for our Pair dinner series. His beautiful menu of wild autumnal food was presented to the guests in the Whiskey room, with matching wines selected by Emily. Our next Pair event will be a long and late lunch, Georgian supra style in the restaurant on Sunday 22nd October – more info here.
The plate spins once more as the cool weather comes in. Here’s our new lunch card and a preview below.
We were really pleased to hear about an alternative film viewing platform where filmmakers can be paid fairly for their work. Even cooler that it was started here in Berlin by a Michelberger, our first ever event manager Nico who worked at the hotel in 2009 / 2010. Behind the tree is a streaming platform available in Germany for independent and arthouse films only. Users rent the film and can (…)
Thank you Jeremy and Trever for the wonderful performance. It was intense and inspiring!
Our guest for the next Odd Gig is Bristol native turned Berlin local Koehler. His genre bending style has jungle roots with futuristic technoid crossover, often with a cinematically potent sound. We’re excited to see what he pulls out of the bag on Monday night! The Odd Gig is our monthly night where artists are invited to play the records they might not normally. Here’s Valentin Stip’s mix from the summer and Andi Toma’s from (…)
Next Wednesday 13 September Jeremy Black and Trever Hagen return to the hotel to make some experimental analog electronic music together. Working as AWEFEKT, Jeremy and Trever met last year at Michelberger Music and started sharing sounds at April Base studios. Jeremy is a music producer and Trever creates textural sounds using the trumpet. Both come from an improvisation background and we can expect Wednesday’s PEOPLE jam to be experimental and free form, (…)
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. While specialty coffee and craft beer are hardly revolutionary in Berlin right now, what makes it interesting to talk to Steve is that (…)
Hotel Tandoori was great fun! Thank you to Andy for hauling the tandoor oven all the way from Slovenia (and for that excellent green chilli and coriander chutney), and thank you to Nandish for getting all those naans perfectly cooked! Mark your calendars for one more Sunday hof bash before the summer’s over – Seafood BBQ on 1st October with Roel from Küstlichkeiten.
Some magic happened last weekend in Copenhagen. A part of the hotel and the monkey team banded together to explore the HAVEN Festival. Equipped with super duper bikes the journey through the city began with a wonderful dinner Thursday evening and some nice drinks at the temporary HAVEN Bar in the heart of the city. Strengthened by a huge breakfast the first festival day started with an exceptional opening: The (…)
