According to the department store, some restaurants on the legendary gourmet floor, which is currently being modernised and marketed as "The Sixth" ("6th"), are now open until midnight. These include a champagne bar, a steak restaurant, a Austrian restauran and a restaurant in the style of a southern German restaurant ("Schwemme"). Visitors have access via a night entrance after the rest of the department store closes at 8 p.m.

KaDeWe is being renovated

The new owners are rebuilding the luxury department store in order to respond to changed shopping habits. The former legendary gourmet floor with many so-called "food stands" had long stood still in the brown and warm West Berlin 80s chic. The new design focuses a lot on white and a cool, hip atmosphere. The KaDeWe used to belong to Karstadt and is now owned by the Thai trading group Central Group and the Austrian Signa Group - as well as the Alsterhaus in Hamburg and the department store Oberpollinger in Munich.
