07 Oct Double Awards for Provocateur Bar

At the Mixology Bar Awards gala ceremony held in Berlin on Sunday 7th of October the coveted black glass trophies were awarded in 16 categories. The Provocateur scored a double hit as Hotel Bar of the Year and Bar Team of the Year awarded to its team. This puts the Provocateur Bar up with the best from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Our entire team is incredibly proud!

The Provocateur Bar follows the concept of the award-winning Roomers Bar in Frankfurt. It’s the hotel’s heart and soul and symbolises a unique bar culture. The burlesque atmosphere of the interior is reflected in the bar menu, which was also shortlisted. The 12 signature cocktails were created by bar manager Tarek Nix and his team and take their inspiration from celebrities from the 1920’s and from the history of the hotel. An individually matched food pairing gives drink a finishing touch.

27 Sep Behind the lenses

His photographic art can be found on all walls of the Roomers houses and at Provocateur he immediately staged a whole scene from the lascivious Paris of the 20s …

Kai Stuht’s philosophical ideas are reflected in his campaigns and artistic works. He started as a sports photographer, set new standards and thus changed the approaches of large fashion campaigns. He was always on the look-out, did not want to adapt, only in the development of his artistic work he found his fulfillment. He was not satisfied until he found his own very individual and artistic style.

He is something like the David Lynch of the European photographer scene. His dramatically staged picture worlds appeal to the subconscious, it is impossible to escape this magical pull. His light guide is unmatched; with the precision of a Hannibal Lecter, he is dissecting his motifs and reassembling them in new meanings. With great sensibility, the electorate unmasked the icons of the entertainment industry, layered by layer from their tank, and as a result, received this rare look at the man behind the public figure. That’s what makes it unique.

Stuht is completely unimpressed by the elitist codes of the feuilleton, he avoids the red carpets like the devil the holy water. In almost autistic retreat, the philosopher is among the German star photographers on the tapestry of his life.
