Radisson Blu’s “Cuckoo’s Nest” nominated for European Hospitality Awards
Cuckoo’s Nest – the restaurant, bar and meeting place at Radisson Blu Riverside in Sweden – has been nominated for ”Best Hotel Bar” in the prestigious European Hospitality Awards. This is the second time in a year that the special and well-designed bar in Gothenburg is recognized internationally.

Cuckoo’s Nest is a restaurant, bar and meeting place on the border between genius and madness. The venue is located at Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg, three steps from the quayside in the new Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel. Last year, the bar received the prestigous European Hotel Design Awards for ”Europe’s Best Bar”. Now, the bar has been nominated for the European Hospitality Awards.

"I am very proud that Cuckoo’s Nest has been shortlisted for this prestigous award. We are competing against the best bars in the hotel industry, so this is truly an honor. I am convinced that we have a great chance to win. Our concept is unique, genuine and something that we are really proud of", says Malin Franck, General Manager at Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel.

Lindholmen is Gothenburg’s old shipyard area that 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 restaurant, bar and meeting place for innovators, visionaries and dreamers. The interior is inspired by science labs and old libraries, and the overall experience is entertaining, exciting and unique.

All our colleagues working in the restaurant and in the bar contribute to the overall atmosphere. Cuckoo’s Nest would not have been anything without them. It would be truly amazing if we won another award this year, says Malin Franck.

The European Hospitality Awards celebrates the very finest hotels throughout Europe across 14 prestigious categories, and the final winners are selected by a jury consisting of representatives from the European hotel industry. The final winners will be announced on 7 November.
