Partying in Berlin is a great experience. There are not many cities in the world who can compete with the nightlife in Berlin and the great parties are defenitely 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: April 2018
The tough months are behind us: April means spring and spring means that Berlin will be even more awesome. In the end of last month we already had some sunny days and you could see that everybody is starting to be in a better mood again. At some locations the first Open-Airs were already organised and it will be possible to visit the first German Weekend-Festivals soon. Besides that it is a bit less problematic to stand in line for a club when it is not freezing outside. All in all we can conclude that April has plenty to offer if you like to party in Berlin.
AndHim, Kollektiv Ost, Sammy D and more
As mentioned, April 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 talented DJs like AndHim, Madmotormiquel, Sammy Dee, Jan Oberlaender will be performing. If you never heard of these names before you can always listen to 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 iso you get a good idea of what to expect.
Below you can find the list of my favourite events to party in April 2018. You can decide to scroll down or click on one of the following links.
06.04.2018 – Jan Oberlaender 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. The club has a nice garden and invites talented local DJs to make sure the music is of the highest quality. During the day you can sometimes find design-markets here and currently you can also watch football here. All in all we can conclude that Birgit & Bier is definitely worth a visit.
The first time I listened to a liveset of Jan Oberlaender was about two years ago. One of his livesets was chosen as the best livesets in 2013 so I had to listen to it straight away and obviously loved the sounds. Last summer Jan Oberlaender also performed at Fusion and since that moment I know this DJ is definitely worth your time. If you want to judge yourself you can listen to his livest on Fusion.
DJs: Jan Oberlaender
Club: Birgit & Bier
Address: Schleusenufer 3
Entrance: 5-15 Euro

07.04.2018 – Kollektiv Ost in Suicide Circus
The Revaler Straße and the whole area around the Warschauer Brucke is one of the most popular party-areas in Berlin. The club Suicide Circus is also located in this area and therefore plenty of people find there way into this club every weekend. The Suicide Circus is one of these raw clubs in Berlin which we all love so much: An old building with a dark dance-floor and great music. When it is warm enough you will also be able to dance in the garden.
Kollektiv Ost consists of two friends named Sandro Schäufler and Marcel Schulz. They are originally from Mecklenburg and have been performing as Kollektiv Ost for a couple of years now. Their music has its own style and it is definitely legitime to visit the Kosmonaut just for these guys. If you want to get an impression of there music you can click this link.

13.04.2018 – AndHim in Kater Blau
One of the most popular clubs in Berlin of all times has been the Kater Holzig. If you have read my article about the Kater Holzig, you probably know that it was really a unique place to party in Berlin. But unfortunately the club had to close down and Berlin lost one of his great venues. But lucky enough the people behind the Kater Holzig opened a new place: The Kater Blau. The club is located directly at the Spree and still has this same unique feel to it. It is quite hard to get in, but the place is definitely worth a visit.
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.
Club: Kater Blau
Address: Holzmarktstraße 25
Entrance: 12 Euro
Music: Techno, House
Link to event: Kater Blau
14.04.2018 – Madmotormiquel in Wilden Renate
Another club in Berlin which is a must-visit, is the Wilden Renate. This club is located close to Ostkreuz and very popular because of its unique style. This club has many different floors and will remind you of an old house with many surprising rooms. As mentioned, the Wilden Renate is a popular place so it is best to arrive early, not with a very large group and with at least a few girls.
The line-up of the Wilden Renate might not be as spectacular as the Watergate or Ritter Butzke but if you like to see some talented local djs in action, this is the place to visit. The Renate focuses more on local heros so why not get to know some new DJs when you are partying in Berlin. Besides that the club has many different floors (if they are all open) so you will probably find one which will suit your taste of music. One of the DJs who will be performing during this night is Madmotormiquel. Madmotormiquel is a pretty famous DJ in and around Berlin. His real name is Michel Neigenfnd and he is performing on large festivals like Fusion every year. His music can be best described as tech-house because it is pretty rough but also has enough melody in it. If you want to listen to one of his livesets (on Fusion 2015), you can click here
Club: Wilden Renate
Address: Alt Stralau 70
Entrance: 12 euro

20.04.2018 – Yetti Meißner 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 these popular DJs in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
Yetti Meißner is born in Berlin and one of the DJs of the label of Sisyphos. Many people started being a fan after her great performance on Fusion 2015 with Oliver Koletzkie Back to Back. If you were not at that great festival you can listen to the liveset here.

21.04.2018 – Sammy Dee 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.
Sammy Dee is a pretty popular DJ and part of his fame comes from his awesome performances in the Berghain. He plays there pretty often and his sets fit the people of Berlin very well: Solid techno is what he normally offers his fans. During his performances you can recognise that he has been around for quite some time: He knows how to play with his crowd and feels like a fish in the sea when he is playing the decks. Sammy Dee is a bit harder to find on Soundcloud but you can find a podcast of last year over here
DJs: Sammy Dee
Address: Köpenicker Straße 70
Entrance: nog onbekend

27.04.2018 – Oliver Koletzki 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.
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
Address: Falckensteinstraße 49
Entrance: 15 Euro
Link to party: Watergate Website
28.04.2018 – Surgeon 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 long line and about half of the people will unfortunately not get in. So if you want to visit the Berghain, make sure you are prepared for a small disappointment.
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 in the same area. You do not have much to lose and if you get in, you are in one of the best clubs in world!
Surgeon is a DJ from the UK who has been making music since 1994. His real name is Anthony Child and most of the time his livesets consist of solid techno. This fits very well together with Berlin because clubs like Tresor, Berghain and About:Blank mainly focus on techno-music. The performance of Surgeon is something I would be looking forward to, if you want to listen to his music before you go and party in Berlin you can click here.
Address: Am Wriezener Bahnhof 70
Entrance: 14 Euro
