Rediscovered and revitalised! Parallel to the general revival of Berlin’s City West, the interiors of the Pan Am Lounge have been restored with uttermost attention to detail and a keen awareness of the location’s historical significance. Scrupulous care was taken to ensure the pristine re-emergence of the interior in its original condition and ageless glamour. Modern and timeless at once, the Lounge’s historical dimension seamlessly coalesces with all mod cons to make every event the absolute sensation that is sure to have people talking for ages.
“The lounge of the former PanAm airline in Berlin is a unique place. The eventful history of the city over the last 50 years is reflected here. Between 1966 and 1991, the PanAm Lounge was an insider tip in the western part of the city.“
Set up as a meeting place for the airline's crews, it quickly developed into a place of encounter with flair. Especially among American guests, the lounge enjoyed great popularity at that time. Willy Brandt also used the fireside lounge time and again for political talks. In 1991, after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the bankruptcy of PanAm, the lounge closed its doors and fell into a deep slumber. In 2005, however, it fortunately awoke to new life - as a meeting place of the new cosmopolitan Berlin with a cult factor. Ten years of the PanAm Lounge's rediscovery are a reason to celebrate.
