It is a unique experience to party in Berlin. There are not many cities in the world who can compete with the nightlife in Berlin and the great parties are definitely a reason to visit the capital of Germany. The clubs in Berlin are very versatile and the prices are very reasonable.
Clubs in Berlin
In November 2012, CNN compared some of the beste nightlife-cities in the world and Berlin ended up winning the second place (only Ibiza scored higher). Partying in Berlin scored the maximum amount of point on the aspects opening-hours and music. If you partied in Berlin before, you know that CNN is right: Berlin never sleeps and it is a great benefit that many great and talented DJ’s love to perform in the capital of Germany. Besides the opening-hours and the music, the clubs in Berlin also offer very reasonable prices: For about 10-15 Euro you can party in Berlin and see some of the best artists from all over Europe.
Because Berlin offers many different clubs, it might be useful to get some help when you are choosing the right place to visit on your precious free nights. On Berlin-Enjoy you can find articles about clubs in Berlin on a regular basis, but in this article we will present the best locations to party in Berlin in the current month. We selected the coolest clubs, the best DJ’s and the sweetest events and put them in the list.
Chosing events obviously comes with a great deal of subjectivity. Therefore we will always attempt to explain why a certain event should be visited and you will also find a lot of links to mixtapes and songs of the specific artists. But always keep in mind that the events are selected because we think they are great and not everybody has to share this opinion. Berlin offers a lot of great Techno and (Deep)House parties, so you will find many of them in the party-calender. If you do not agree with the events, feel free to leave a comment or contact us about great gigs and events which we should visit.
Party in Berlin: November 2018
The month November is packed with some great parties in Berlin. Because the sunny days are behind us we have to concentrate on the warm and cosy clubs again (instead of open-airs and festivals). Although it sucks that we have to wait another 6 months for these great outdoor-parties, the clubs usually are able to invite more famous DJs throughout the winter. Therefore you better get ready for some solid events in the capital of Germany.
Mano le Tough, AndHim, Koletzki and more
As mentioned, November has plenty to offer when it comes to great acts and talented DJs. Some real Berliner DJs will be performing and besides that some popular international names will also be visiting Berlin. If you are visiting Berlin to party, you will be excited to hear that superstars like Mano le Tough, Bebetta, AndHim, Oliver Koletzki and Bondi will be performing. If you never heard of these names before you can always listen tot their music on Soundcloud: I mostly present a liveset or mixtape below the parties in Berlin in this article. So just take some time to listen to the music before the party so you get a good idea of what to expect.
Below you can find the list of my favourite events to party in November 2018. You can decide to scroll down or click on one of the following links:
02.11.2018 – Nico Stojan in Birgit
Birgit & Bier is located on walking distance from station Schlesisches Tor. Besides great parties during the night you can also find plenty of solid open-airs here during the day and evening. The club consists of several areas to chill, dance or order your drinks. Besides that they invite talented local DJs to make sure the music is of a great quality. During the day you can sometimes find other activities like design-markets, football-matches or workshops here. All in all we can conclude that Birgit & Bier is definitely worth a visit.
Nico Stojan is a Berliner native who has been making music since the early 90s. He has been performing in clubs all over the world and also has his own record together with Acid Pauli. His music is versatile and it is always a surprise what kind of style and set he is going to play.

Entrance: 10-15 Euro
Music: Techno, Electro

03.11.2018 – AndHim in Watergate
The Watergate is one of the most stylish clubs in Berlin and also a bit more expensive than most others. The entrance is normally 15 euro and a beer will costs 4 euro. Although the prices are a bit higher, most people love the Watergate and I personally also think it is worth the few extra Euro’s. The club has two floors and an awesome view on the Spree. If you want to read more about the Watergate, you can read my previous article.
AndHim exists of the two friends Simon Haehnel & Tobias Müller from Köln. The two friends have been popular all over the world for quite some time now. Besides the fact that their livesets, this DJ-duo are very funny in their video-clips, facebook-posts and other communications as well. If you check out their website you will probably understand what I mean. Also the clip from their song Boy, Boy, Boy will probably make you laugh. These guys know how to party and therefore it could be a great choice to go and see them live in Berlin.
The entrance in the Watergate will be 15€ and the beers are a bit more expensive compared to other clubs in Berlin (4€). Still you will get enough in return for this investment, especially the beautiful view and sunset is a famous must-see if you visit Berlin.
Address: Falckensteinstraße 49
Entrance: 15 Euro
Music: House, Techno
Link to party: Watergate Website
09.11.2018 – Robert Hood in Tresor
The Tresor is one of the most unique clubs in Berlin. De club is located in the Köpenickerstrasse in Berlin-Mitte and the place is literally located under the ground. The location reminds most visitors of a underground warbunker and the rough techno and excessive use of blacklight make a night in the Tresor a special experience. The Tresor can be reached by foot from station Jannowitzbrucke and the door-policy is not as difficult as many other clubs in Berlin.
Robert Hood is a famous DJ from Detroit but can be spotted in Europe quite often. He is playing on many large festivals in Holland, UK and Germany and his music can be best categorized as Minimal/Techno. The amount of fans and followersof Robert Hood has been growing the last years. If you want to listen to some of his music before you go and party in Berlin, you can check out his Soundcloud.
DJs: Robert Hood
Address: Köpenicker Straße 70
Entrance: nog onbekend
Link to event: Tresor
10.11.2018 – Nils Ohrmann in Golden Gate
The Golden Gate is one of these raw Berliner clubs. The club is located in an old and ruinous building between Jannowitzbrucke and Alexanderplatz and does not really look that inviting from the outside. The door-policy is not that hard but people who dress-up too much have a large chance of being rejected. This club is for the music-lovers and not for people who want to shine. Because of its extreme opening-hours and underground-style, the Golden Gate fits perfectly in the nightlife of Berlin.
As the name already suggests, Nils Ohrmann is a DJ from Germany. Together with another DJ I personally like a lot, Daniel Steinberg, he owns the label Arms & Legs. Nils Ohrmann has been making electronic music for quite some tie already and he always seems to find a nice mix between house and techno. In Berlin you might experience his more rough livesets but he also loves to play some funky tunes with a lot of melody. If you want to listen to a liveset you can find one in the Golden Gate here.
DJs: Nils Ohrmann
Club: Golden Gate
Address: Dircksenstrasse 78
Entrance: 10-12 Euro
Link to event: Golden Gate
16.11.2018 – Bondi in Kater Blau
One of the most popular clubs Berlin has ever known was the Kater Holzig. If you have read my article about this club, you probably know that it was quite a unique place to party in Berlin. But unfortunately the club had to close down and Berlin lost one of his great venues. But not long after closing down the owners opened a new place which is called Kater Blau. The club is located directly at the Spree and still has this same unique feel to it. The door-policy did not change so it is still not easy to get in, but the place is definitely worth a visit.
It is always quite a special thing if DJs play an extra instrument during their livesets. Bondi is a combination of a DJ/Producer and a musician: The guys (Daniel Archut & Alexander Schug) are both from Berlin and are getting more popular every month. It is fun to seem them perform together and merge the guitar with the songs they are playing. Just to warn you in advance: It is not a guarantee, they sometimes also play a “normal” DJ-Set. If you want to listen to their music, you can click here.
DJs: Bondi (Live)
Club: Kater Blau
Address: Holzmarktstraße 25
Price: 14 Euro
Music: Techno, House
Link to party: Kater Blau website
17.11.2018 – Oliver Koletzki in Mensch Meier
The club Mensch Meier has not been listed in this party-calendar before. This does not mean that the club is not worth visiting though: Many people love this club because of the awesome vibe and the great music. The people behind Mensch Meier also have a floor at the Fusion Festival so this should give you an impression of the kind of club this is. It is all about tolerance and having a great time together. The club is located clode to Volkspark Prenzlauer Berg, has 3 different floors and also a large garden which is mostly awesome in the summer.
Oliver Koletzki is one of the most famous DJs in Germany and also known all over Europe. He has been “in the scene” for quite some time and is also the owner of the popular label Stil vor Talent. On this Stil vor Talent party in Berlin you can expect some of the best DJs of this label. Channel X, Benotmane and Illesnoise will all be present on this night in the watergate. If you want to listen to some livesets, you can find one from Oliver Koletzki here.
DJs: Oliver Koletzki
Club: Mensch Meier
Address: Storkower Straße 121
Entrance: 10-15 Euro
Music: Techno, House, Electro

23.11.2018 – Bebetta in Ritter Butzke
The Ritter Butzke is one of the clubs in Berlin which is represented in my party-calender almost every month. If you like to party in Berlin and you love a solid line-up, you will probably love the DJs which are performing in the Ritter Butzke. The good thing is, that the Ritter Butzke has the same entrance-prices as all the other clubs in Berlin. For 10-15€ you can see many popular DJs in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
Although Bebetta looks like an innocent girl, her livesets are powerful and solid. She has been playing in clubs and festivals all over Germany and also performed on Fusion 2015. The liveset I have chosen for you to listen, was recorded on another German festival, the Feel Festival 2015.

24.11.2018 – Mano le Tough in Berghain
Berghain is probably the most famous club in Berlin. If you are looking for a special experience or party in Berlin, it might be a good idea to visit the Berghain. The only small problem could be that it not easy to get into the Berghain these days. On a regular saturday-night there is a very long line and about half of the people will be refused entrance. So if you want to visit the Berghain, make sure you are prepared for a small dissapointment.
But if you get into the Berghain you will have a great night. This club has been voted as the best club in the world a couple of times. So I would suggest you make the best of the time you are waiting and if you will not get in you can always try another club. You do not have much to lose and if you get in, you are in one of the best clubs in world!
On the 24th of November I would personally be very excited to see Mano Le Tough. This DJ is born in Ireland and if you like house and techno you will have a great time during his liveset. If you want to listen to some music to get in the right mood to party in Berlin, check out this liveset of Mano le Tough.
DJs: Mano le Tough
Address: Am Wriezener Bahnhof 70
Entrance: 14 Euro
Link to the event: Berghain
30.11.2018 – Tyree Cooper in Griessmuehle
The Griessmühle is one of the many clubs in Berlin with an awesome location. The club is located directly at the water and has a large garden. The garden is decorated in the typical Berlin-Style and this is one of the reasons this club is so popular. The people and the atmosphere is very laidback and especially in the summer this is a great place to visit. A great benefit about the Griessmühle is also that you can buy one ticket and it will be valid for the whole weekend. The club is located in the Sonnenallee and can be reached by traveling to the station with the same name.
Tyree Cooper is an American DJ who got famous for being one of the first to play House HipHop. I saw Tyree Cooper live in About:Blank once and this was one of the best nights in Berlin I had so far. Mister Cooper performed awesome and since that moment I try to visit him every time he visits Berlin. There is not that much music of him on Soundcloud, but here you can find a mixtape.
DJs: Tyree Cooper
Address: Sonnenallee 221
Entrance: 12 Euro
Music: House, Techno
Link to event: Griessmühle
