This event venue is precious. To a lot of people. But like every love affair, it is complicated. That starts with the fact that you never know for certain WHAT is happening WHEN. The good folks at the ‘Botschaft’ like the understatement. And spontaneity. But everything they do is likely to be very cool and heartfelt. And something to remember.
Let’s start by saying that this is the best place in Hamburg to watch a Football (Soccer) match. Together with a lot of like minded experts and their cigarettes, you sit on cosy chairs. There is a fine bar in the large room to keep the beers coming. If there is a major tournament happening (or Champions League playoffs) while you are in Hamburg, THIS is the place you want to be.
Also, these guys have excellent taste in music and are friends with a lot of really good DJs who will light up the night, usually on Saturdays. The DJ sets are streamed and broadcast under the name Beta Lounge since before anyone knew what a “stream” was. They are pioneers in that regard.
If it is the weekend, there is a good chance that something is happening here. Might be a flea market or a party, a kids afternoon with games, might be a theater performance or a Beta Lounge DJ Session. It’s all good. All original “Hamburg”. Just take a look inside.
