The legendary Grand Hotel Esplanade on the Potsdamer Platz was not only one of the first luxury hotels in the city, but also also a meeting spot of the High Society in the 20s. Stars like Billy Wilder, Greta Garbo or Charlie Chaplin resided in the magnificent house built in 1907 in the style of the belle époque.
100 years later the building, which was partially destroyed in WW2, a shining revival as a society hotspot. Opened in April 2022, the Frederick’s Restaurant, Bar, Lounge and Deli fuses into a place that takes the glamor of the past into the presence.
The interior combines the palace-like building style of the historic building with modern elements and contemporary art. The heart is the grand bar in Art-Déco style with its eight meter high ceilings. It is located in the former silver hall of the hotel and presents many original elements, such as the hand painted columns with 50s designs.
With its impressive crystal chandeliers, the over-dimensional vintage mirrors and the custom made furniture made of marble and dark oak, the restaurant radiates the flair of large luxury hotels. Matching that: chairs and sofas covered in opulent velvet and leather.
