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: June 2018
The month June is a great month to visit Berlin: The sun is shining, you can visit several open-airs and if you want to get out of Berlin some great weekend-festivals also can be visited during this month. Fortunately this month also offers you some solid line-ups in the clubs in Berlin and the fact that many clubs also have an outside-area gives you another argument to visit these parties.
Lexer, Adana Twins, Len Faki and more
As mentioned, June 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 Lexer, Marcel Dettmann, Stereo Express, Adana Twins and Len Faki 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 June 2018. You can decide to scroll down or click on one of the following links.
01.06.2018 – Boris Brejcha in Astra Club
The Revaler Straße is one of the coolest streets in Friedrichshain and is connected to the Warschauer Brucke. In this area of Berlin you can find clubs like Suicide Circus, Rosi’s and also the Astra Club. The Astra club does not necessarily have that raw Berliner vibe but you can still have a great night there when the line-up is right.
And on this party-night that is definitely the case: Boris Brejcha will be performing and some of you might know him because of his mask. As you can see on the image above, you cannot recognise his face during most shows. He describes his own style of music as High-Tech-Minimal and in 2006 his first two hits reached the topcharts for downloads in Germany. In the meantime, more than 10 years later, Boris Brejcha is booked by many large clubs, festivals and clubs. When you want to listen to his music before visiting this event, you can click here.

Address: Revaler Strasse 99
Entrance: 10-12 Euro

02.06.2018 – Len Faki 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!
The line-up in the Berghain is always very solid. Every weekend you will be able to see a great DJ perform and the Berghain also has some regulars which are quite famous. One of these DJs who is playing on large festivals but also plays in the Berghain quite often is Len Faki. This guy has about 400.000 fans on Facebook so that should say something about his popularity. He produces solid techno and knows how to get the crowd started.
The entrance for this party in Berlin will be 14 Euro and you do not have to worry about the opening-hours because the Berghain is open the whole weekend.
DJs: Len Faki
Address: Am Wriezener Bahnhof 70
Entrance: 14 Euro

08.06.2018 – Adana Twins 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.
Adana Twins is a DJ-Duo from Hamburg which has been performing under that name since 2006. Both guys love deep sounds and they have been performing on festivals all over the world. This month they will be in Berlin and you can enjoy them live in the Watergate. If you want to get in the right mood to party in Berlin you can listen to their music here

Entrance: 15 Euro
Music: House, Techno

09.06.2018 – Dapayk 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.
Dapayk is a talented German DJ who fits perfectly in the nightlife of Berlin because he usually plays Minimal/Techno. His real name is Niklas Worgt and he has been “in the game” for quite some time because he has been making music since the early 90s. Besides performing live he is also a producer and label-owner. If you have not heard from this talented guy before, you should just listen to this liveset.

Entrance: 10-12 Euro
Music: House, Techno

15.06.2018 – P.E.A.R.L. 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.
P.E.A.R.L. is geboren en opgegroeid in Santander in het noorden van Spanje. Hij heeft zich in de jaren 90 laten inspireren door lekkere clubsounds en dat hoor je nog steeds in zijn sets. Zijn muziek is stevig en past daardoor ook heel goed in de techno-clubs in Berlijn. Wanneer je voor het stappen in Berlijn kennis wilt maken met de muziek van P.E.A.R.L. kun je hier een van hem luisteren.
P.E.A.R.L. was born and raised in Santander, in the north of Spain. In the nineties he got inspired by the UK-House music and you an still hear this sound in his sets sometimes. His music fits in the clubs in Berlin very well, because it is solid techno as we are used in clubs like Tresor, Berghain and Golden Gate. If you want to listen to some music of P.E.A.R.L. before you go and party in Berlin, you can find a liveset in the Tresor here.
Address: Köpenickestraße 70
Entrance: 10-12 Euro

16.06.2018 – Stereo Express in Ritter Butzke
The Ritter Butzke is one of the clubs in Berlin which is represented in my party-calendar 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 most other clubs in Berlin, so for 10-15€ you can see many popular DJs in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
Stereo Express is a Belgian DJ who must of you might know from the remix of Sweet Dreams of Eurythmics. He made that remix in 2012 and that year you could not visit a festival without hearing that track at least once. Since that year Stereo Express got quite popular and has been playing on several large festivals. Last year he was also performing on Fusion and you can listen to the liveset here.

22.06.2018 – Marlon Hoffstadt 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.
From the line-up on this night in Berlin Marlon Hoffstadt would be my personal reason to visit this party. Marlon is a reasonably young and talented DJ and already has its own label (Well-Done). Some of you might know him from the song “Once Again” but also his livesets are great. A pretty recent liveset can be found here. His livesets are very versatile and I expect quite of lot of his performance.
DJs: Marlon Hoffstadt
Club: Wilden Renate
Address: Alt Stralau 70
Entrance: 12 euro

23.06.2018 – Marcel Dettmann in Berghain
Obviously I would not recommend visiting the same club twice if you are in Berlin for a short period of time. But this list has to sum up the coolest events in Berlin and Marcel Dettmann is definitely one of the most talented Techno-DJ’s I know. This German DJ will be performing in the Berghain and although I already mentioned that club once in this list I still do not want to withhold this party for you.
The line-up in the Berghain is usually very solid. On this night in Berlin Marcel Dettmann will be performing and this is a very talented DJ. The entrance for this party in Berlin will be 14 Euro and you do not have to worry that the Berghain will close before you are sick of dancing.
DJs: Marcel Dettmann
Address: Am Wriezener Bahnhof 70
Entrance: 14 Euro

29.06.2018 – Philip Bader 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.
Philip Bader is another DJ who was born in Berlin and therefore has a special bond with this city. He loves to come back here and play in different clubs and festivals. His love for electronic music started in 1998 so he is an experienced guy. He did some cooperations with large DJs and together with his friend Niconé he started a label called Dantze. When you want to listen to his music, you can click here.
The entrance of the Kater Blau is 12 Euro and the place can be reached from station Jannowitzbrucke or Ostbahnhof.
DJs: Philip Bader
Club: Kater Blau

Entrance: 12 Euro
Music: Techno, House

30.06.2018 – Lexer in Birgit
The club Birgit 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.
If I would have to choose a favourite DJ, Lexer would definitely be in my top 3. In the last couple of years I have seen this German DJ perform several times and he has never disappointed me. His liveset are always of great quality and he always manages to find the perfect mix between techno and house. If you would like to listen to some of his livesets, you can check out his Soundcloud.
Address: Schleusenufer 3
Entrance: 10-15 Euro
