For Berlin people it is legendary. Café Moskau, built on the representative stalinistic Karl-Marx-Allee as a symbol of strong solidarity with the “big brother” Soviet Union in 1964, used to be THE restaurant in former East Berlin.

In the 1990s after German reunification the atrium building was used by the Berlin party scene. In 2007 Nicolas Berggruen Berlin Three Properties bought the property and started the conversion into a conference center in colaboration with the Berlin based practice HSH Architekten.
