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.

Party in Berlin: August 2019
The month August 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 German weekend-festivals also can be visited. But Berlin would not be Berlin if there would not also be some solid line-ups in the techno-clubs all around town. You can see plenty of great DJs in August for which you would normally pay quite a lot of money. Additionally, it is also great that most of the clubs also have a large garden which can be used as extra dancefloor.
Lexer, Tanith, Mano le Tough and more
As mentioned, August 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, Lexer, Kollektiv Ost, Douglas Greed, Iron Curtis, Britta Arnold will be performing. If you never heard of these names before you can always listen tot their music on Soundcloud: I always link to a liveset or mixtape below the parties in Berlin in this article.

Milton Bradley 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.
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
Address: Köpenicker Straße 70
Entrance: 10-12 Euro
Link to party: Tresor Website
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 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!
On this party-night in Berlin I would personally be very excited to see Mano Le Tough perform live. This DJ is born in Ireland but has been playing on festivals all over the world. His music style is versatile but on this night you will most likely hear a techno-set from him. 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

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. One thing some of you probably like about this Berliner club is that there is one floor where they play 80s, 90s and HipHop.
When I would have to choose a favorite DJ, Lexer would definitely be in my top 10. 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: 12-14 Euro
Music: Techno, House, 80s & 90s

Tiefschwarz 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.
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.

Tanith 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.
Tanith is a German DJ which was performing in Berlin before I was born (1986). Tanith is over 50 years old so a real experienced guy who knows how to create a great atmosphere in a club. He has been playing different styles of music during his career but nowadays he mostly focuses on techno. If you want to listen to his music you can have a look at his Soundcloud.

Mike Book 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.
Mike Book is a DJ I did not hear about that much till I heared his liveset on Feel Festival. It is full of melody, good beats and nice climaxes. It is another DJ from Berlin and I personally would recommend everybody to go and check him out on this night. He has been performing for just a few years and already has a large amount of followers on Social Media and Soundcloud. If you want to listen to the set I mentioned above, you can click here.
DJs: Mike Book
Club: Wilden Renate
Address: Alt Stralau 70
Entrance: 12 Euro

Kollektiv Ost 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.
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.

Britta Arnold 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.
Britta Arnold is a real child of Berlin. She was born east of the wall in 1984 and therefore she has been in the music-business for quite some time. The special relation with the city still exists and for that reason Britta often plays in clubs like Kater Blau. This summer she also performed on Fusion and her liveset was recorded: You can listen to it here.
DJs: Britta Arnold

Address: Holzmarktstraße 25
Entrance: 12-14 Euro

Iron Curtis 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.
Iron Curtis was born with the name Johannes Paluka. He has been travelling the world and played in all sort of festivals and parties. This experience is used in every liveset he is playing nowadays. You might want to create your own opinion by listening to his music here.

Douglas Greed 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.
Douglas Greed is open for everything: He can entertain a group of youngsters during a sunny open-air in Berlin but he could also play during the dark after-hours of a techno-party. His music is versatile and as you can see on his social media he is a popular guy. If you want to listen to his music before partying in Berlin, you can click here.
DJs: Super Flu
