WORLD’S MOST NORTHERLY “GRAND DAME” HOTEL SET TO RELAUNCH APRIL 1
WEILL TO HANDLE PR FOR NORWAY’S BRITANNIA HOTEL TRONDHEIM
First opened in 1870 to welcome aristocratic Britons in search of the world’s best salmon fishing, Trondheim’s Britannia Hotel will reopen on April 1 after a multi-year $160 million renovation. The fjord city of Trondheim, located just 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle, is Norway’s third-largest city, home to 200,000.
Britannia Hotel is a striking domed white building that has been the world’s most northerly luxurious “palace” hotel for 150 years. It has welcomed distinguished guests from presidents to Nobel Prize winners, to Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, to Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
The rebirth of the Britannia is the brainchild of Norwegian financier, Odd Reitan, who was born in Trondheim in 1951 and who, at age 14, developed the dream of owning the hotel. He features prominently in the Forbes and Bloomberg lists of global billionaires.
“We are thrilled to have been asked to represent this extraordinary hotel,” says Geoffrey Weill, “adding it to our inventory of some of the world’s most spectacular privately owned ‘grand hotels.'”
A member of Leading Hotels of the World, the Britannia will offer 246 rooms and 11 suites, six restaurants and bars – including its original Palm Court, a spa, gym and indoor swimming pool. The hotel will offer guests the latest technology, sound-proofing, TV’s concealed within mirrors, as well as amenities and lighting that are easily understood and operated.
The Britannia will be a celebration of cutting-edge Norwegian and Scandinavian design and artworks. Beds are by the celebrated Swedish handmade bedmaker, Hästens. Bathrooms are a feast of Carrara marble.
At the heart of the Britannia will be the glass-domed Palm Court, first unveiled in 1918 and long Trondheim’s meeting place for socialites, artists, musicians and intellectuals. The reborn Palm Court will host breakfast, lunch, brunch, afternoon tea and dinner – offering creative Scandinavian fare.
The Britannia’s culinary arts are overseen by Christopher Davidsen, born in the Norwegian city of Stavanger in 1983 and Silver medal winner of the cherished Bocuse d’Or in 2017. Davidsen’s prime focus will be the elegant Speilsalen, his first signature restaurant. The Brasserie Britannia will be classic French, inspired by Paris and Lyon and by New York’s Balthazar. The Jonathan Grill is a casual restaurant specializing in Japanese, Korean and Norwegian specialties. The marble and crystal Britannia Bar is expected to become overnight Trondheim’s chicest cocktail bar and lounge.
The Vinbaren wine bar – with its 8,000-bottle cellar – will provide a lounge, tasting room and bar offering tapas, charcuterie and cheeses.
The Britannia Spa & Fitness features a large indoor pool, several saunas, five treatment rooms and personal trainers. The hotel will also offer state-of-the-art conference and ballroom facilities.

DANISH TRIO SCARLET PLEASURE SHARE NEW SONG “GOOD TOGETHER” VIA VIRGIN RECORDS
Band Will Make U.S. Live Debut At School Night On October 23 And The Peppermint Club On October 25 In Los Angeles
Scarlet Pleasure are back with the new single “Good Together“- yet another soul warming post card from the Danish trio, who in 2017 delivered two major Danish hits, wrapped in their own unique sound and strong lyrics about escapism, paranoia, karaoke, and Vespas. “Good Together” is available for streaming and purchase via Virgin Records HERE.
Scarlet Pleasure will make their U.S. live debut in Los Angeles, CA at School Night on October 23 and The Peppermint Club on October 25.
“It’s a song about a shipwrecked relationship, a feeling of uncertainty and what it could have developed into – but sometimes destiny decides differently,” says lead singer Emil Goll about “Good Together.” And namely destiny is practically synonym to the stories that Scarlet Pleasure has unwrapped on their latest releases. Goll further explains: “Life is in many ways a series of coincidences that are reflected by the choices we have made in the past. And we like to dive into these choices, both the good and the bad.”
With the single “Déjà Vu” Scarlet Pleasure introduced a brand-new sound built around the DNA of the band: drums, bass, guitar, and vocal. The song went number 1 on the Danish Airplay Chart four weeks in a row and “Déjà Vu” is now certified Platinum in Denmark.
In June, the single “Limbo” and an EP by the same name followed. 15 weeks after the release, the single is still in the Top 5 and both the single and the EP have been certified Gold in Denmark. The two massive hits have set the course for a totally sold out tour in Denmark in November. In March 2018 Scarlet Pleasure, will perform their biggest shows so far at the two Danish arena venues – Scandinavian Congress Center in Aarhus and Forum in Copenhagen.
Scarlet Pleasure consist of childhood friends Alexander, Emil and Joachim, who formed the band in Copenhagen in 2013 and quickly got their big commercial breakthrough with the single “Heat” (2x platinum in Denmark). Since then, the band has since their debut been nominated “Best Danish Group” at the Danish Grammys 2016, played the biggest venues and festivals in Denmark, toured with Lukas Graham and streamed more than 60 million times on Spotify.
