A Classic Returns: Business Lunch in the Renovated Marlene

Berlin, June 1st, 2023 – With a substantial investment of €61 million from IHG® Hotels & Resorts and Union Investment, the InterContinental Berlin has reimagined itself. While preserving its heritage, the legendary Marlene still graces the heart of the luxury hotel. Here too, renovation has been carried out with style and care, reviving the unique character of the restaurant with its renowned bar, which is celebrated far beyond the borders of Berlin. Almost as famous as the nights of elevated bar culture are the Business Lunches, which are now back on offer.

The menus, tailored to the seasons and harvests, change daily and each consist of a salad, a main course, and a dessert. A small bottle of water is also included. Currently, the opening act features spring salads as an appetizer, followed by asparagus penne, oriental lemon chicken, Königsberger meatballs, Massaman Thai curry, and many other specialties. These international recipes provide a lot of variety and are excellently prepared. For the meat or fish courses, there are also changing vegetarian alternatives such as asparagus risotto, poached egg with ratatouille, or a vegan Massaman curry.

The menu is available from Monday to Thursday between 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm and costs €19.50. The Business Lunch is not available on public holidays or during events. The renovation work has been completed, and guests are now welcomed by the magnificent glass pyramid at the entrance and can enjoy contemporary designs throughout the luxury hotel. Due to the hotel’s optimal location in City-West and near the zoo, the lunch offer is also recommended for tourists and locals who want to take a break during their shopping spree.
