Karl, Cocktail Barman 8 March, 2016 by Mette Von Schack Meet our Cocktail barman Karl Shuman who has taken over our unique and intimate cocktail bar, located on the first floor of the hotel. Karl moved to Stockholm in 2010 from Charleston, South Carolina, where he performed as a professional touring musician for seventeen years. Having a Swedish mother, Karl learned the language during his summer vacations spent in Sweden. When an opportunity arose for Karl to work at Hotel Diplomat, he accepted graciously, left America and never looked back. We thank Karl for his fantastic contribution to Hotel Diplomat and we are grateful having such a positive and loyal coworker in our team!
