At an excellent location above the Alster Arcades, with a view of the Town Hall and the Binnenalster Lake, we give members and their guests the opportunity to meet business partners and friends in their own club rooms.

Enjoy a relaxed meal with business associates, meet like-minded members, spoil your guests, conduct business without being disturbed, commemorate a jubilee in the appropriate surroundings or celebrate a birthday with an intimate circle of friends.

At the same time the Hanse Lounge highly appeals to foreign visitors, as the incomparably beautiful terrace, with a view of the Town Hall Square and the Binnenalster Lake, make it easy to feel contented in this very special location.

The catering is organised by an excellent and professional team that provide a personal atmosphere and who cater to our guest every wish. The waiting staff is attuned to the needs of those present and not forgetting to mention the fair and abundant range of meals.

Apart from the classic menu, which is provided all year round, there is a lunch menu, a monthly menu that focuses on a theme and a weekly menu.

Besides the diversity in our catering, the Hanse Lounge offers a range of events – whether informal discussions with politicians, talks and presentations with high-profile speakers, who are now and again one of our members, bridge courses, golf tournaments, wine tasting, gourmet menus, events for children – the choice is never ending.

THE CLUBRESTAURANT

With a view of the Town Hall and in close proximity to the stock exchange – therefore, truly between politics and the economy – the Hanse Lounge offers haute cuisine in an exclusive ambiance.

Here you can enjoy creative cooking and attentive service from lunchtime until late in the evening.

The business lunch changes on a daily basis and each new menu, created every week, is a culinary experience.

The Hanse Lounge essentials are so popular that we couldn’t imagine life without them.

Our head Chef Joern Wrede surprises his guests time and time again. Our menu has a “modern-European” touch and the wines are exquisite.

Taste, indulgence, contentment – dining as a sublime experience.

THE LIBRARY

Here, in a place of tranquillity and relaxation, the hectic ness of business life has no admittance. In the club library there is recreation, instead of business as usual.

Elegant pitch pine surroundings and leather lounge chairs entice you to stay and the events of the day can suddenly be discussed more calmly.

For interesting reading the Hanse Lounge supplies a large selection of newspapers and up to date magazines, as well as a representative collection of contemporary literature, including reference books from the world of economics, politics, wine and travel.

How about an aperitif or a whisky after dinner? A crackling open fire to round things off and the mood is set for stimulating conversation, amongst fine English leather and elegant wood finishing.

We would like to welcome you outside. Well not quite, as a protective cover is given to the green terrace of the Hanse Lounge by large white umbrellas, which shield from the sun and the hardly noticeable light breeze of a late summer evening, thanks to the discreetly positioned heaters.

The view is magnificent. To the left the Binnenalster Lake, to the right the Alster canal and down below the hub of the city, in front of the Town Hall. Members and guests find this to be truly an oasis of calm in the middle of the city and enjoy the atmosphere outside with the always attentive service.

There is room for 60 guests to dine at this exclusive location above the Alster Arcades and we can accommodate 120 guests at receptions, whether it is a business, political or private party.

Teatime, Happy Hour, after work – spoil yourself whenever you please.

And this location becomes quite unique, when there are exiting events taking place at the Town Hall square e. g. the Hamburg marathon, DTM or the open-air cinema, as members can enjoy the spectacle from the front row.

BISMARCK ROOM

This atmospheric room has guests immediately under its spell.

Beautiful furniture, historical paintings on panelled walls, amongst which there hangs, of course, Otto Graf von Bismarck. Come in and absorb the harmony and the hanseatic elegance. Our Bismarck room is the perfect location for a special occasion – for a festive dinner with friends and family or business associates, for a prestigious reception or stimulating talks.

It is no coincidence that the name “Bismarck” was given to this room. The Hanse and the Bismarcks are bound by tradition.

The Bismarcks sat on the advisory board of the Hanse Lounge for a few years and left the club a painting of Otto von Bismarck as a souvenir.

The Bismarck room can also be set up accordingly for important meetings and presentations. This room is equipped with the most modern technology i.e. beamers and audio equipment.

The Bismarck room is available to our members for conferences, presentations and private dinners.
