Plus One Magazine

_DSC0111.jpg

EHPC and THE ENTOURAGE GROUP are proud to present the first issue of Plus One magazine, the new print publication and online home for the creative inspirations behind our hotels and restaurants.

We have always looked to the work of contemporary artists as the starting point of everything we do — how can we inject contemporary creativity in a home away from home or in a meal shared with friends? With this magazine, we hope to build the communities in the city we call home — Amsterdam — as well as the growing list of places we consider our homes away from home: Munich, Ibiza, Hamburg, and Berlin. Our approach is local and our reach is global: by working with the creative community throughout Europe, we open our doors and our cities to a global spirit of travel, adventure, and creative curiosity.

The magazine is distributed for free in all of our properties and can be purchased online at X BANK.

Introducing Sir Hotel's Instagram-based City Guides

 
Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

 

We repurposed Instagram to provide an innovative way for locals and visitors to experience the very best in food, culture and festivities. Check out each Sir Hotel's Instagram account and you'll see that it has been transformed into an easy-to-use city guide highlighting local favourites and hidden treasures: Sir Savigny’s guide to Berlin, Sir Nikolai’s Hamburg guide, Sir Joan’s Ibiza guide and two distinct Amsterdam guides for Sir Albert and Sir Adam

This exciting project allows us to connect our guests to the city, community and culture on a platform that they are already familiar with. The city guides reflect the unique character of each hotel and its corresponding neighbourhood while compelling users to experience the cities as locals.
— Liran Wizman

Using Instagram’s signature nine-square grid layout, customised graphics and colour coding, the accounts build on the already existing and familiar template. Optimising the Instagram interface, each hotel’s account uses the grid layout to split the recommendations into different categories in a design-savvy manner. Headings for each category, such as ‘Shops’ or ‘Feel Good Food,’ span across multiple squares effectively dividing the screen and making it visually appealing as well as user-friendly. Further to that, the social media app’s key features such as geolocation and tags are already integrated to create an easy way to for users to source additional information on each recommendation.

While you're clicking through the individual accounts, make sure you visit and follow our main account as well: @SirHotels.

A Never Ending Breakfast

At Benedict, the restaurant at Max Brown Kudamm in Berlin, breakfast lasts all day long.

At Benedict, located at the Max Brown Kudamm' in Berlin, breakfast is not a matter of time, but a matter of perspective. For Benedict, this means breakfast never ends since it's not a question of when, but what you eat that defines breakfast. Favourites include the egg balls, knuckle sandwich and not surprisingly, the Eggs Benedict, which you can have in various ways. See the entire menu here. Plus, be sure to stop by the Benedict Bakery, next to the front desk for fresh breads and pastries.

Fun Fact: Benedict was named after the brunch favourite, “Eggs Benedict,” a dish invented in the 19th century by Lemuel Benedict, a retired Wall Street stock broker. One day, Mr. Benedict wandered into the Waldorf Hotel’s restaurant hoping to find a cure for his morning hangover. He ordered “buttered toast, poached eggs, crisp bacon and Hollandaise sauce.” The restaurant’s maître d’hôtel was so impressed with the spontaneous dish that he put it on the breakfast and luncheon menus.
