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
A couple of years ago 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.
Best parties in Berlin
Because Berlin has so many different clubs to offer, it can be useful to get some help when you are choosing the right place to visit. Especially when you are visiting Berlin for just a few nights, you want to be sure you make the most of your party-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 all in a list for you.
Focus on Techno/Deephouse
Choosing events and parties obviously is closely connected to taste and subjectivity. Therefore we will always attempt to explain why a certain event should be visited and you will also find a link to specific mixtapes and livesets of the DJs or artists. As there are many great house and techno-clubs in Berlin, most of the events in this list are focused on these music-styles. 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 consider.
Party in Berlin: April 2019
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.

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 Sammy Dee, Stereo Express, Tiefschwarz and Dave Clarke will be performing.

05.04.2019 – Sammy Dee 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!
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 his crowd like not many others. Sammy Dee is a bit harder to find on Soundcloud but you can find a podcast over here
The entrance for this party in Berlin will be 14 Euro and you do not have to worry that the Berghain will close too early: This club normally opens on Friday and closes on Monday.
DJs: Sammy Dee
Address: Am Wriezener Bahnhof 70
Entrance: 14 Euro

06.04.2019 – Bondi in Birgit & Bier
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. One thing some of you probably like about this Berliner club is that there is one floor where they play 80s, 90s and HipHop.
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.
Club: Birgit & Bier
Address: Schleusenufer 3
Entrance: 12-14 Euro
Music: Techno, House, 80s & 90s

12.04.2019 – Dave Clarke in Tresor
The Tresor is one of the most unique clubs in Berlin. De club is located in the Köpenicker Straße in Berlin-Mitte and the place is literally located under the ground. The location reminds most visitors of an 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 Jannowitzbrücke and the door-policy is not as difficult as many other clubs in Berlin.
Dave Clarke is one of the more experienced and older DJs who plays in Berlin on a regular basis. There are not many clubs in the capital of Germany he has not played before. Especially when you like techno, Dave Clarke is a guy you are going to enjoy. If you want to listen to his music before partying in Berlin, you can find a liveset here.
DJs: Dave Clarke
Address: Köpenicker Straße 70
Entrance: 10-12 Euro
Link to party: Tresor Website
13.04.2019 – Sebastian Voigt in Wilde Renate
A club in Berlin which is a must-visit for everybody who loves to party, 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 might remind you of an old house with many surprising rooms. The club can be found on walking distance of both station Ostkreuz and Treptower Park. As mentioned, the Wilden Renate is a popular place so it is best to arrive (kind of) sober and not with a very large group.
The line-up of the Wilden Renate is not as spectacular as the Watergate or Ritter Butzke. The Renate focuses more on local heros so why not get to know some new DJs when you are 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 which will be performing on this night is Sebastian Voigt and his livesets are definitely solid. If you want to get an impression before you party in Berlin, check out his podcast for Wilden Renate here.
DJs: Sebastian Voigt
Club: Wilden Renate
Address: Alt Stralau 70
Entrance: 12 Euro

19.04.2019 – Tiefschwarz in Watergate
Watergate is one of these clubs located at the Spree and a very popular place for both tourist and Berliners. In my opinion the club misses a little bit of the rawness of Berlin but it definitely offers some great features to compensate. There is a balcony directly above the water and when the sun rises it offers the best view ever. Besides that the line-up of Watergate is normally like a great festival: Many large DJs and great labels. If you want to read more about the Watergate, you can read this article.
The two brothers Alexander & Sebastian Schwarz will please your senses if you like electronic music. As a DJ-duo with the name Tiefschwarz they are booked all over the world with their versatile and melodic livesets. If you want to listen to their music you can check out this Podcast and judge yourself (podcast is a bit older).
Adres: Falckensteinstraße 49
Entree: 15 Euro

20.04.2019 – Dirty Doering 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.
Dirty Doering is one of these native Berliner DJs who loves to come back to his town once in a while. I have seen him play on a few large German Festivals and I really enjoyed his livesets. If you want to create your own opinion before partying in Berlin, check out his livesets yourself.
DJs: Dirty Doering
Club: Kater Blau
Address: Holzmarktstraße 25
Entrance: 12-14 Euro
Music: Techno, House
Link to event: Kater Blau
26.04.2019 – Milton Bradley in About Blank
A club which is also located almost directly at station Ostkreuz is About Blank. A while ago I already wrote a full article about it because I really think it is one of the better clubs Berlin has to offer at this moment. The club About Blank has a very large garden which is perfect in the summer: Funny features like a campfire and some cool places to sit make this club special place.
Milton Bradley is the owner of the Labels Do Not Resist the Beat and Alien Rain. He did some work with Henning Baer and lives in Berlin at the moment. His music fits perfectly to Berlin because he normally plays harder electronic music. If you want to listen to his music already, you can find a Boiler-Room set together with Henning Baer here.
DJs: Milton Bradley
Club: About Blank
Address: Markgrafendamm 24c
Entrance: 10-15 Euro
Music: Techno and Deephouse
Link to event: Website Link
27.04.2019 – 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 all the other clubs in Berlin. For 12-14€ you can see these 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.
