The Complete Guide to Berlin Clubs, Germany

Top of the popular clubs in Berlin

Many visitors to Berlin consider their mission accomplished only after getting to know the city’s nightlife as well :) So, in order to make it easier for you to find where to go to a disco in Berlin, and so that the evening was fun, I want to introduce you to the popular clubs in Berlin, in my opinion (guide to Berlin and shopaholic in one person)) and in the opinion of many top lists.

1. Adagio

Club Adagio covers an impressive 1,500 square meters with a total capacity of 950 people. The interior of the club is decorated in the style of medieval baroque. Painted ceilings, arches, balconies, candelabras, statues, wooden and tiled floor coverings give the atmosphere a sophisticated touch and bring back centuries.

In spite of such an austere, elegant and medieval style one can hear RnB music, popular radio hits, mixes and tracks of guest popular DJs and techno music. In Adagio you can meet representatives of different age categories, everyone feels here comfortably and at ease. In the club there is always a great and easy atmosphere. Good mood and positive emotions are always guaranteed!

2. Club-restaurant Felix

Club-restaurant is located in the building of the famous hotel Adlona and is inferior to club Adagio only if its size. A premium club with dance music, a 20 meter long bar and an extensive VIP area.

Adjacent to the club, the French cuisine restaurant “Le petit Felix” is open Monday through Saturday from 6 to 24 p.m.

3. Sprindler & Klatt Club & Restaurant

In the club’s restaurant Sprindler & Klatt you can try the new trend in cooking pan-Asian and European cuisine from the chef Marek Oertel.

10 atmospheric techno clubs and DJ bars in Berlin

Berlin is the place to come for adult parties: the city has long been a magnet for techno lovers. Those in the know can hit a club on a Friday night and leave on Monday morning. If you want to pass for local, add our list of no-pop places to the map and hang out there.

Köpenicker Strasse, 70, 10179 Berlin

One of the oldest German techno clubs. The place was opened in 1991 in the former cash vault of a large department store. Then the building was torn down and the club was moved to the old power plant. Now Tresor has two main dance floors: one where a DJ behind the bar plays fast techno, and the second one pumps the crowd to house. On weekdays one of the venues may be open, on weekends the action is full swing and if you are lucky a third dance floor may be open.

To change the dance floor, you have to walk through the long black tunnel, where the strobe lights methodically beat. The main thing is not to fall into a complete trance and do not get lost. Don’t count on the aesthetics here: the smell of sweaty party-goers and condensation dripping from the ceiling is the policy of the trashy Berlin club. You can stand in a queue for an hour and a half, but this mishap happens because of the number of people, not because of strict face control. The price to get in depends on the event: usually it’s €10, sometimes €12 or, in the case of the third dance floor you can get €14. For drinks: beer for € 3 is the most popular product. If you take a bottle of beer you’ll get a token – a deposit for the cost of the container. That’s why the first time you have a drink it costs about € 1-1,50 more. Then you can get the money back but it is not customary: people keep the tokens as a souvenir.

Zagreb, Croatia

In the same building is the OHM Club, a rectangle lined with white tiles around the perimeter. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays Tresor can be too large for parties – so events are organized in the more compact and cozy OHM. Musical tastes are similar to the neighboring club, and the price tag for admission is between €5 and €10.

Richardstraße, 10, 12043 Berlin

Basement bar in Neukeln, where the walls and ceilings are hung with everything from mirrors to crucified dolls, and in some places there are out-of-work slot machines. You can sweat it out at the bar upstairs, or you can take the stairs down to the basement and into the party room. Downstairs is a small area that looks like an apartment with rooms, corridors, and a very low ceiling that you can reach with your hand. The dance floor is for about 50 people. The atmosphere is very cozy and homely, but on weekends people fill up. The entrance fee varies from € 4 to € 6. Sometimes the money goes to help the needy and vulnerable groups.

In Sameheads they try to mix an interesting cocktail of music and DJs: a local program manager can find no name musicians on Soundcloud and invite them to his place, and sometimes popular locals or world famous DJs perform here. This coming Saturday, for example, Elena Sizova from Minsk will be playing.

Skalitzer Strasse, 135, 10999 Berlin.

It is impossible to get into this bar from the street. Follow the steps in the courtyard that will take you to the bar. Paloma has two levels: the lower level, where almost always someone is playing, and the upper level, which is open on weekends. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, you can roam from floor to floor and stay where the music comes in more. The program manager is a former salesman for the oldest vinyl store, Hard Wax, which focuses on house and techno. The bar’s program, as you might imagine, is affected by this employee’s background as well. In addition to good music, there’s a gorgeous view of the U-Bahn, where the yellow trains run, from the huge windows. Admission is € 4-5, cocktail is € 6-7. On Thursdays, before the parties, there are interesting events where musicians talk about track writing techniques, mastering, etc. All in all, a cozy and homey bar where young people hang out and where neighborhood freaks stop by.

Eichenstraße, 4, 12435 Berlin.

If you want to party on a boat, this is the place to go. Hoppetosse is a place about house, minimal house and techno. Hoppetosse is located on a small two-story boat on the River Spree. Mostly vinyl DJs play here and most of the contingent are other DJs who support the performers. The club is famous for its long parties: People party nonstop from Saturday to Monday. Ricardo Villalobos, Zip, and other musicians we don’t know today, but will probably know in a couple of years. Hoppetosse looks like the Hooligan’s of Minsk after the fire: planks on the floor and parts of the ship around, left over from the days of sailing. Normally admission is €5, but if a powerful lineup and two dance floors are announced, you’ll have to pay €12. In addition to the dance floors, there are two small lounge areas with lots of sofas and a place to lie down and relax in the middle of the day-long rage.

Am Flutgraben, 12435 Berlin

Hoppetosse and Club der Visionaere are run by the same people and are a five-minute walk from each other. When the party at Hoppetosse slowly winds down by Monday night, people move to Club der Visionaere. The only downside of this location is the seasonality. The place works from April to November depending on weather conditions. But when the sun is shining here you can sprawl out on the pouffes right in the street, throw your legs in the water and listen to the music coming from the open window of the club. The space itself is small: on one side there’s a DJ, 2-3 meters away there’s a small bar and in between there’s a dance floor 5m². On Tuesdays and Wednesdays admission is usually free, on other days it’s €4. If you suddenly want to stay longer and get hungry, know that there’s a pizzeria on the second floor of the brick building. All in all, the place is homely and a bit rustic, but no less iconic than Berghain.

The island of Rhodes - the pearl of Greece

Am Wriezener Bahnhof, 10243 Berlin

There are already a thousand and one articles written about this techno-mecca in Berlin. The sound is top-notch and the atmosphere is cool, but Berghain is best known for its long queues and unpredictable party control. You can walk in here many times, but you won’t get in 21 times for reasons no one but the security guard understands. There’s an opinion that you have to look like you’re not too anxious to get in. If you’re in a cocktail dress – the chance drops, if you look around and take photos of everything on the phone – the chance drops, if you look like you’re about to get to the best party of your life – the chance almost to zero. For tips on how to get into Berghain, click here.

Weekend parties here last more than a day. There’s only now some seasonality: Tourists come and party the first night, and locals pull up closer to Monday night. If you hang out here for a couple of days, you can see how the audience gradually gets naked, becomes more freaky – and now there are already more leather underpants, chains and naked people on the dance floor than people in clothes. Entrance usually costs €15 euros, on Friday, when the club is partly open, €12, and on Saturdays €16-18. Another feature of Berghain is that the DJs play long sets of 3-6 hours. If you look at the lineup, see some interesting names, and then come at night and hang out until 8 am, you can easily not catch any of them. There’s usually only a couple of sets played during the night. As for drinks, it’s common here to buy a bottle of Club-Mate or beer and then fill it with water from the tap in the restroom.

Nalepastrasse, 18, 12459 Berlin

At one time the GDR built a station which was very similar (in its function) to the Ostankino TV tower. The huge space from the start was designed with an emphasis on good acoustics. Now the Funkhaus Berlin is located here, where events are held not quite regularly – a couple of times a month. As a rule, these are big concerts or parties for a couple of days. You can come here as a museum by appointment and peruse the location in the light of day, but agree, it’s much more interesting to look at the place during the event. Admission for the party is € 15, for the concert about € 30. Be sure to check the poster before you go.

Nalepastrasse, 18, 12459 Berlin

The same building that sheltered Funkhaus Berlin is home to another club, Monom. It is known for its 4D sound system: the sound is located around the perimeter – on the ceiling, along the walls, and even in the floor. Typically, musicians write their programs specifically for the unusual system. It is the only place where the set can sound like this and not that. Apart from parties, Monom hosts a lot of performances and installations where the sound is in contact with the visual. Sometimes there are exhibitions. Of course, this lay-out influences the contingent – many people are attracted exactly by the art component. Entrance costs from €15.

Brückenstrasse 1, 10179 Berlin

The almost-secret bar is located in Neukeln. It is not possible to enter it from the street. You have to first find a small nightclub in one of Berlin’s neighborhoods. Then, when you get to the right stall selling beer and cigarettes, look for the refrigerator with your eyes – this is the key to success. Behind the refrigerator doors is the entrance to a nightclub. There’s a meme on the internet, where when you walk into Diskothek Melancholie 2 through the fridge, you see a fairy tale, and when you leave, you see a guy at the cash register selling cigarettes. Everything is played here: drum’n’bass, house, techno, and experimental. Usually people hang out at the bar till 3-4 in the morning and then move on to other places. Admission is € 5.

Karl-Marx-Platz, 16-18, 12043 Berlin.

Berlin’s arkaoda is a sister club to the institution of the same name, which opened in 1999 in Istanbul. A relatively new place in the German capital where Berlin concrete, some greenery and a muted warm yellow are waiting for you. According to the founders, the club is looking for new things and supports independent music and art, just like the Turkish branch. The facility consists of two parts: a bar where a small sound system and DJs play in the corner and a more serious dance floor in the basement. You can have a drink and listen to music for free but if you decide to go downstairs you have to pay 5-7 € entrance fee depending on the party. The place is open almost daily and they pour beer and serve shots of 20 ml – no miracles. Remember that students like to hang out at arkaoda.

The 34travel editorial staff would like to thank Artem Dorokhov for his help in preparing the material.
