Police said they were investigating the event after evaluating photos and a video of the event that were shared on social media. The posts now appear to have been deleted and CNN has not viewed them.
The spokesperson said police received a noise complaint about the Soho House at 2:45 a.m. local time on Saturday, April 10. Police responded by phoning the private members club. The call was answered by a receptionist, who subsequently silenced the noise, the spokesperson said.
At that time, police were not aware of a party at the Soho House, and therefore no officers were sent to the site, the spokesperson said, adding that no further complaints were received.
Responding to the investigation, Soho House said the safety of its staff, guests and the wider community was its “utmost priority.”
The company said that it had recently received a business booking that occupied all of the rooms at the Berlin hotel and that the booking was made in accordance with government guidelines.
“We’re aware of a possible break of social distancing rules when guests returned to the hotel, we take this very seriously and we’re working with everyone involved to find out what happened,” it said in a statement sent to CNN.
Private events are limited to people from two households.
On Saturday, the same day as the alleged party, the director of the German intensive care association tweeted that the country’s ICUs have reached peak capacity.
