The North's Great East

When three brilliantly inspired hosts – Anne-Marie Bauer, Marc Ciunis and Christoph Strenger – teamed up to create the east, the result was a hotel, entertainment and dining experience that changed the face of Hamburg.

The trio behind the east hotel in Hamburg is a perfect example of coordinated energies. Anne-Marie Bauer is originally from Bavaria and has an extensive background in the hotel industry. She likes to call herself the "Herbergsmutter" (Hostel Mom) of the east, orchestrating a family of about 200 employees. 

I think that being a good host is about just being there,” says Ciunis. “It gives guests a sense of security.

MARC CIUNIS

Marc Ciunis is a natural host. Having worked behind the bar for most of his life, he is the proprietor of the famed CIU Bar in Hamburg, among others. All of the east's food and beverage outlets carry his signature and operate under his watchful eye. Add Christoph Strenger, the strategist behind the east cosmos, and you have a perfect mixture that is reflected in the east's restaurants, bars and nightlife venues. Each of the three Originals contributes to the east's success in their own way: the experiences they have gathered over the years in their professional fields have transformed the east into more than just a hotel designed by Jordan Mozer. Bauer, Ciunis and Strenger have established a hotspot in the middle of Hamburg's Reeperbahn district, which is famous for its long nights and glittering nightlife. 

On any given day you are sure to run into one of the three, and that is crucial to their success: “I think that being a good host is about just being there,” says Ciunis. “It gives guests a sense of security.” They are now venturing out and onto the island of Mallorca, where they are working on a project to bring the east flavor to Spain...stay tuned!
