Sitting just across the river from Frankfurt, Robert-Johnson is an intimate club run by Ata and Sebastian Kahrs. The venue is defined by its minimalist flair: its main room contains little more than a dance floor with space for less than a hundred people, a DJ booth with inlayed turntables and a rotary mixer, a few benches and a bar (there's also a balcony with a view of the Main River wrapping around the small building). The sound system is by Martin Audio, and many consider it to be one of the best in Europe.
Since 2003, the club has run its own label, Live at Robert Johnson
, with 12-inches and albums as well as a run of mix CDs that wrapped up in 2011. There's also a semi-private restaurant in the Robert-Johnson offices called Club Michel, where Ata (a devout gastronome) and others cook for the DJs and other guests. In 2012, Robert-Johnson released a book of photographs, essays and interviews called Come On In My Kitchen
, and supported it with a tour of clubs around Europe, with each date featuring DJ sets by the residents and a "Club Michel" dinner party beforehand.
