The cool and trendy people has sniffed up Berlin as their creative playground. Ironically Berlin was the place to be almost hundred years ago during the Weimar epoque, so there must be something. Bossops pick five hot clubs in Berlin where you can dance your night away and say, “I was there ” to your grand children.
1. Berghain / Panorama Bar
One of the world’s most legendary and well-known techno clubs is located in the former East Berlin, housed in an old power station from the GDR period. Just as spectacular and mysterious as its reputation. It might also be good to remember that Berghain is originally a gay bar and it is reflected in the clientèle. Expect “Studio 54 treatment” at the door. This is the place where Lady GaGa likes to party.
Address: Wriezener Bahnhof, Friedrichshain.
One of the most popular clubs in Berlin is at the River Spree, renowned for its panoramic windows overlooking the river and a huge light display that extends from the DJ booth and out across the large dance floor. The audience is a mix of pretty much non-Germans, or as Berliners call anyone who does not speak German, tourists.
Address: Falck Steinstrasse 49, Kreuzberg.
