Brasserie

CARLS Brasserie stands for North-German cuisine with a French touch. Attractive pictures on the tiles over the open-plan kitchen and the aubergine-coloured leather benches convey a French flair.

The view over the harbour adds a flavour of Hamburg.

Lunch

Never a dull lunch! Why not choose our plat du jour or one of our classic dishes? And by the way: Wednesdays are our curried sausage days.

JACOB KARLZON — CARLS KULTURSALON
jacob karlzon

21th February — Jacob Karlzon

Jacob Karlzon is one Europe’s best piano players. “Shining” is the perfect word to describe the music as well as the personality of this guy from Sweden. He doesn’t care much about the question which musical genre his music falls into. Personally he likes to name it “improvised instrumental music”. There’s absolutely nothing to stop Jacob Karlzon when he is creating huge musical pictures using incredible sounds. Don’t miss it!


Entrance at 6:30 pm, admission €58, students €39 including aperitif, flying food and wine

ULITA KNAUS — CARLS KULTURSALON
Ulita Knaus

27th March — Ulita Knaus

Germany’s women’s mag ‚Brigitte‘ wrote about Ulita Knaus: „There are not only a few out there who think that Ulita Knaus is Germany’s best jazz singer. The Hamburg based Ulita indeed has a remarkable voice – strong, flexible, melancholic and always ready to send shivers down the listener’s spine.” And the FAZ called her the “new hope in jazz”. Ulita Knaus is performing together with guitarist Roland Cabezas.


Entrance at 6:30 pm, admission €58, students €39 including aperitif, flying food and wine

CARLS AN DER ELBPHILHARMONIE

At CARLS an der Elbphilharmonie in the midst of HafenCity it’s a case of laissez-faire mingled with a vibrant atmosphere. In fact, similar to French brasseries and bistros. Enjoy this little piece of France in a wonderful setting with three separate areas – Brasserie, Bistro and Salon Privé & Bar. Three people also define what makes CARLS special.

Francesco Potenza

Italian-born, Francesco has been part of CARLS and the Jacob family since his time as head chef on Elbchaussee from 1996 to 2000. He gained experience as a host in renowned hotels in Paris, Munich and Hamburg.
