Take a Breather – Gerbermüle Hotel & Restaurant, Frankfurt

 

The Gerbermüle is part of the city’s heritage and is probably one of the most atypic hotels in Frankfurt.  Just by the main river,  it is surrounded with a large,  beautiful and very traditional German Beer Garden. However, from the outside, you might never guess the fully refurbished and creatively designed interior. Take a breather – discover the Gerbermühle hotel & restaurant.

 

 

 

RESTAURANT & DRINK

If  you are looking for  a nice/ quiet place to  enjoy the sunset on the skyline,  we’ve  probably found THE spot for a drink, or for  diner.  The chestnut trees and the Main river make you forget about your stressful routine or the urban noises. Take a breather with friends, or colleagues and  just enjoy  the moment. The restaurant offer a large choice of tasteful and simple food, wines and if you need it,  great recommendations from the staff.

HOTEL

If your  planing to stay  few days, for a get away or a business trip in Frankfurt we totally recommend this hotel. Although located outside the city center, you can however access there within 10-15mn by car from the Central station.

Select materials, a modern interior and luxuriously appointed bathrooms offer a stylish comfort. 

Forget about earplugs, you won’t need it. At the Gerbermühle, the only neighbors you might have  are some little ones living in the chestnuts of the garden!

The kindness and simplicity of the the staff, the quality of the service, and the confort of the stay make you feel like staying forever!

Maybe not the first place you will think about regarding a birthday bash or corporate events, but most probably one of the best in town.

Normandy Le Chantier Reflection

CBD? Password Please… – Normandy Le Chantier, Paris

The legendary Normandy Le Chantier’s location in the 1ere Arrondissement has put it in the middle of all the action in Paris since 1877 but if you know where to look, you might just find one of Paris’ best kept secrets…

 

 

Paris is full of beautiful Haussamanian architecture and enough history to amaze even the most well-traveled explorers.  However, this newest addition to the Machefert hotels, Normandy Le Chantier, might just be in the most dreamy Parisian quarter. Going there is already an experience of its own, it is just moments walk from the Louvre and other popular tourist attractions. However, don’t let the history and imposing architecture put you off! The Normandy is anything but a conventional hotel located in the Paris city center. Don’t expect the conventional experience here, the front-desk is replaced by employees wearing post-war work overalls, who will welcome you with a large smile.

Like its name “Le Chantier” suggests, the hotel is undergoing extensive renovations but remains open to offer you an immersive experience. The cherry on top could be the plant-based canteen and pâtisserie, “Le Comptoir du Chantier”. You can enjoy a delicious buffet-style meal at any time of the day that is centered on natural ingredients and goodness.

If you’re looking for a nightlife option, however, Normandy Le Chantier welcomes you to come and find their hidden speakeasy! If you can find the entrance, follow the spiral metal staircase down into the Belle-Epoque style boudoir room and enjoy the REHAB bar. It is one of the first cocktail bars of its kind offering CBD-based and alcohol-free cocktails. Relax in the dim light, and immerse yourself in decor from a different time. Good luck and happy hunting….

When you look at this
You see perfection
Because what you see
Is your reflection

Meet the Team: London

I am Audrey and I am the new London Apéros Frenchies Ambassador !
I am 26 years old and I have been calling London home for the past two years.
I am actually a country side girl as I am coming from a little city called Aurillac. You might have never heard of it as it’s a city lost in the middle of France but believe me it offers an amazing range of speciality like Truffade, (sorts of potato and cheese dish you should definitely look it up on Google 😉)My favorites places in London are of course a cheese shop called Hamish Johnson (@hjfinecheeses ). 🧀There you’ll be able to find almost all the variety of cheeses you want for a reasonable price (I am crazy about their truffle brie) and on top of that they are super friendly !I would also recommend the Floating Bakery (@the.floating.boulangerie ) this one is a little gem ! It’s a business that has been created during the pandemic and without a fail their almond croissant is one of the best (if not THE best) I have ever had ! 🥐

Finally, there is a wine bar that I really love, it’s called Vagabond (@vagabondwines). 🍷 It has different locations in London, their wines are coming from all over the world and they have a very nice range of tapas (psss: it’s not too expensive and great for a date night ! Been there done that 😉)

Anyway, enough about me, what’s more exciting than Apéros Frenchies coming back to London?! 🎉 You have no idea how excited I am to meet our London community !
