Christmas
Market Memories

Thanks to all the lovely people who made such nice stalls with wonderful wares to sell, to those who came along and made the atmosphere so warm and of course to the Berliner Kneipenchor for the beautiful soundtrack.

Kleinster
Weihnachtsmarkt Berlins

01.12.2013 ab 16 Uhr Liebe Berliner, ihr seid herzlich eingeladen! Wenn der Märchenwald vor Bäumen nicht zu sehen ist, dann seid ihr richtig beim kleinsten Weihnachtsmarkt der Stadt am 1. Adventssonntag ab 16 Uhr in unserem Hof. Wie Hänsel werdet ihr euch fühlen beim Genuss des kaiserlichen Schmarrn und wie Rotkäppchens Großmutter beim wärmenden Hot Monkey. Familie und Freunde werden in alter Tradition ihre Waren feilbieten … ganz sicher ist ()

Christmas
at the Michelberger

Dear friends, guests and neighbours, The year has almost come to an end, and like every Christmas season we get into the spirit of things and turn our courtyard into a beautiful winter forest. There’ll be plenty going on in December as the hotel will be extra-cosy and twinkly. Our restaurant will be cooking up savoury and hearty winter specialties for lunch and Friday & Saturday dinners. Sunday evenings will ()

Farewell
Alex Calderwood

Our friend and founder of the Ace Hotels passed away last week. We are sad and in disbelief. For our hotel he felt like a sibling across the ocean, from the first time he walked into our place a couple of months after our opening. The way he built his first hotels in Seattle and Portland, the creative process, the construction struggle, the passion, the emotions, all the things that could go ()

How Leah
saw The National

From Tom’s daily humming of Sorrow to the unforgettable album release show of Trouble Will Find Me back in April in our courtyard, The National’s music has become a home to us all in the Michelberger. So it was only natural that we decided to make a little team outing and take our love and support to the biggest concert our friends have done in Berlin so far. On Monday ()

The Story of
Eternal Youth

In the late Spring we opened a little pop-up gallery in Dalston for the Fountain of Youth. If you were ever travelling down the Kinglsand Road into town, chances are you may have seen it as you passed by. It’s just recently closed so we thought it’d be nice to look back over what happened there during the summer. Eternal Youth was the brain-child of our wonderful UK partners Missy ()

Odessa
Photography Exhibition

For the next month or so we’re having a photography exhibition in the lobby. Azar spent his summer holiday in Odessa, right on the Black Sea. He took some photos of that amazing place and the people bursting with life and character and now the weather’s turned dark and cold, we wanted to bring some of that sunshine and colour back to our bar. The vernissage will be tonight (1/11/13) ()

The Head and the Heart
+ Chrysta Bell Videos

The videos from the great acoustic sets by The Head and the Heart and Chrysta Bell are live. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ez994rXAahk

The Revival Hour
Concert

On Monday evening (9th September), we’re very happy to be welcoming The Revival Hour to the hotel to play for us. You may not have heard this American duo just yet, but we’re pretty sure you’ll be hearing a lot of them soon. Their music is a beautiful and powerful blend of folk and electronica with a big sound. They’ve got interesting personal histories, revolving around their strict religious upbringing and ()
