An expert jury will vote on the best drink in the "The House of Thomas Henry". May the best bartenders win!

Now it’s time for a new "Golden Age": Thomas Henry, the guarantor of fine drinks, opens the doors to the historical "Kaufhaus Jandorf", for a world filled with inspiration, fantastic new discoveries and excellent drinks. Created, mixed and served by the best bartenders in Europe. Two days and nights blur the boundaries between dream and reality, between past and present.

In this dazzling setting, Thomas Henry heralds the start of "The New Golden Age".

„Gastronomie gegen Rassismus“

The Golden Twenties also stand for tolerance and a respectful coexistence. Lavish parties such as "The House of Thomas Henry" are only possible if people are curious about one another and free of prejudice. Therefore, Thomas Henry supports „Gastronomie gegen Rassismus e.V.“. The Club donates funds to organizations that promote and enable the integration of immigrants and refugees with language courses. Thomas Henry is very committed to these issues and supports them gladly and wholeheartedly.

A Fabulous

Newspaper boys hawk extra editions, street artists show off their skills, shoeshines stand by, there even is a real barber shop! And music of course, with bands, ballerinas and burlesque dancing. At "The House of Thomas Henry", the atmosphere sparkles in the style of the New Golden Age.

Elli Fatale

Men's Outfitter

"If your life sucks, sprinkle glitter on it", is the beautiful motto of Elli Fatale, a woman of many talents. She is a stylist, artist and owner of „Prinzipal Kreuzberg", a cocktail bar with an exciting burlesque program, seemingly sprung directly from the Golden Age. In "The House of Thomas Henry" Elli offers exquisite products for the elegant Lady and the fine gentleman – hair jewelry in the style of the Golden Age for her, and cufflinks and bow ties for him are just a few of the fine accessories that she offers.

Rowdy Barber

Barber Shop

Golden Age gentlemen valued a well-groomed appearance highly, an accurately trimmed beard and a dapper haircut were part and parcel of a proper presence. Now that men have rediscovered the virtues of the beard, barbers are in fashion again as well, and this traditional profession is experiencing a renaissance. In the "The House of Thomas Henry", the professionals of the „Rowdy Barber Shop“ form the perfect look with blades and scissors, give grooming tips and sell specialty products. Being styled like a gentleman of the old school adds an extra bit of distinction to the enjoyment of a delicious Thomas Henry drink.


Bar Equipment

Why not enjoy a perfectly mixed drink or cocktail at home? "Cocktailian" has the professional bar tools, such as jigger, shaker and strainer, as well as premium spirits, glasses and literature. More than 4,000 articles are available in their online shop. In the "The House of Thomas Henry" the rare opportunity arises to try out selected products live and to purchase them directly.

The Bitter Truth


"The Bitter Truth" is known and appreciated by bartenders all over the world: for over ten years now, the company from Bavaria has been enriching the bar world with cocktail bitters, special liqueurs, and spirits that had faded into obscurity for far too long. All products are manufactured by hand from pure natural ingredients – just like in the good old days. Guests at "The House of Thomas Henry" can look forward to a journey into the world of flavors.

The Restaurant

Chicago Williams BBQ

Thomas Henry was an English gentleman who was partial to the pleasures of life. The creative minds of "Chicago Williams BBQ" combine this passion with the surprisingly delicious tradition of English cuisine. Hearty, exotic and peppered with sweet seductions.

​We are thrilled to announce that Chicago Williams BBQ will be collaborating with The House of Thomas Henry on both days.
