“Cuckoo’s Nest” – the restaurant, bar and meeting place at the Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel in Gothenburg, Sweden – has won the award for ”Best Hotel Bar” in the prestigious European Hospitality Awards 2014. This is the second time in a year that the special and well-designed bar in Gothenburg is recognized internationally.
Gothenburg, Sweden, 2014-11-12 — /Travel PR News/ — “Cuckoo’s Nest” is a unique and innovative venue; designed with a fine line between genius and madness. It is located at Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg, three steps from the quayside in the Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel. Last year, “Cuckoo’s Nest” received the prestigous European Hotel Design Awards for ”Europe’s Best Bar”. Now, it has won the European Hospitality Awards 2014 which were celebrated in London.
“I am very proud that “Cuckoo’s Nest” once again has won a prestigious award. We are competing against the best bars in the hotel industry, so this is truly an honor”, said Malin Franck, General Manager at the Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel.
The judges were impressed by the manner in which “Cuckoo’s Nest” drew inspiration from its surrounding environment, creating a destination for locals as well as guests. They commented on the willingness to take risks, breaking the mould of the traditional hotel bar and looking to develop something quite different from the expected norm.
Lindholmen is Gothenburg’s old shipyard area, and has become a leading forum for research, innovation and eduction within new technologies and communication. Thus, the ambition with “Cuckoo’s Nest” has always been to create a place for innovators, visionaries and dreamers. The interior is inspired by science labs and old libraries, and the overall experience is as entertaining as exciting.
“All our colleagues working in the restaurant and in the bar contribute to the overall atmosphere. “Cuckoo’s Nest” would not be anything without them. This is a great win and motivation for the entire team”, added Malin Franck.
The European Hospitality Awards celebrate the very finest hotels throughout Europe across 14 carefully selected categories, and the final winners are chosen by a jury consisting of representatives from the European hotel industry.
