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: March 2018
The first three months are a bit less busy in Berlin if it comes to tourism. The whole year Berlin is always crowded but in these months there are no Christmas Markets, Open-Airs or large Festivals so it is a bit less busy in the clubs and around famous spots like Brandenburger Tor. The temperatures are low so standing in line for clubs is not really an option if you ask me. For that reason you might want to choose your clubs wisely in March: At some clubs you can buy tickets upfront so you know that you will get in. Or maybe look at it from another angle: This could be your chance to get into populair clubs like the Berghain or Watergate. Anyway: For the people who love to party in Berlin there are plenty of reasons to visit Berlin in March 2018.
Fatboy Slim, Format:B, Tanith and more
As mentioned, March 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 Fatboy Slim, Madmotormiquel, Thomas Schumacher, Format:B, Tanith 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 March 2018. You can decide to scroll down or click on one of the following links.
02.03.2018 – Florian Kruse 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 is Florian Kruse. This is a German DJ who performs in Berlin on a regular basis. He devoted his life to electronic music and is a very talented guy. He produces, performs, lectures and owns a label. His music fits in the category techno but he also loves to play deephouse. If you want to listen to his music, you can click here.

03.03.2018 – Fatboy Slim 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.
Most of you probably heard of the artist Fatboy Slim. With songs like Right Here Right Now and Praise You he got very famous all over the world. His real name is Normal Quintin Cook and his music-style is different from all other DJs in this party-calendar for Berlin. Fatboy Slim has its own unique style of music but one thing is for sure: He knows how to get a party started.
DJs: Fatboy Slim
Address: Falckensteinstraße 49
Entrance: 15 Euro

09.03.2018 – Turmspringer 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.
Turmspringer consists of the duo Robert Galic (alias Edgar Peng) and Tim Brüggemann (alias Didier de la Boutique). These boys can be found in Berlin nearly every weekend but also perform on many German Festivals. They have been performing together for over 10 years now. When you want to party in Berlin, this night in the Golden Gate might be just the event for you. If you want to get an impression the music, you can visit the soundcloud-page of Turmspringer.

10.03.2018 – Format:B 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.
Format:B consists of two friends called Franziskus Sell & Jakob Hildenbrand. Both have been making music long before they started making electronic music. In 2009 they had their big breakthrough and since then they have been playing at many different festivals, clubs and parties. Their music is nice and versatile and therefore they could be the perfect recipe for a good party in Berlin. If you want to listen to their music, you can find some of their tracks here.

Entrance: 10 Euro

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.
Thomas Schumacher is another German Dj which has been performing in clubs and at festivals for many years now. He has been around for more than 20 years. Because his livesets are very solid, it is always great when he visits Berlin again. In the summer of 2016 he was also performing on the Fusion Festival and you can listen to his liveset here. His music is a great mix between techno and house.

17.03.2018 – Henning Bear 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!
Henning Bear is one of the many talented DJs from the Label Grounded Theory. His livesets contain mainly solid techno-tracks and that fits very well to the Berlin nightlife.

23.03.2018 – Madmotormiquel 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.
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

24.03.2018 – Tanith 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.

30.03.2018 – Kollektiv Ost 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.
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.

31.03.2018 – Steve Rachmad 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.
Steve Rachmed is a DJ from the Netherlands and some people believe he brought Detroit Techno to Western Europe. It is an honour to have Djs like him in Berlin and especially if they visit clubs like the Tresor. If you want to listen to some of his music before you go and party, you can check this liveset.
