The Orania.Berlin Opens in Restored Historic Building

Orania.Berlin

The brand-new Orania.Berlin, located in the heart of Berlin at Oranienplatz in Kreuzberg, finds its home in a restored historic building dating to 1913. The Oranienpalast Café, as it was known at the time, was popular for its concerts – something Orania.Berlin hopes to recreate.

Artistic director Julien Quentin, an internationally acclaimed pianist who lives in Kreuzberg, has created a program that includes a mix of jazz, classical and electronic. Musicians will be sourced from Berlin. Jazz pianist Marc Schmolling, who also lives in Kreuzberg, will curate the Orania.Pure Jazz Series & Festival. 

As for the hotel, the Orania.Berlin will have 41 rooms & suites, a Literary Salon overlooking the skyline of Berlin and a Living Room with two open fire places, open kitchen, cozy restaurant, stylish bar, and a Concert Stage with a grand Steinway Piano.
