The Detroit Symphony Orchestra in-house restaurant is switching things up for three weeks this month in honor of the Brahms Festival. In addition to beard contests, yoga classes with string quartets, and performances of the famed German composer’s works, the Paradise Lounge is taking on a new moniker and menu for the occasion.

Named after Brahms’ favorite tavern in Vienna, The Red Hedgehog will offer German and Viennese dishes such as veal rouladen. Batch Brewing Company has also developed a special one-off beer called Unrequited Belgian Sparkling Ale after Brahms' unrequited love for pianist Clara Schumann. The brew will be available at all DSO concessions, The Red Hedgehog, and the Feel Good tap at Batch. Take a peek at the first menu below, launching February 11. Menus will change weekly during the three-week festival run.
