Edgar Peng in Golden Gate

The Golden Gate is one of these raw Berliner techno 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 as tough as some other Berliner Clubs but still people get rejected occasionally. 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.

Marcel Dettmann in Berghain

Berghain is probably the most famous techno club in Berlin. If you are looking for the best party in Berlin, it’s a great idea to visit the Berghain. The only small problem could be that it not easy to get into the Berghain. It’s one of the most popular clubs in the world and 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 many 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 techno-club in the same area. You do not have much to lose and if you get in, you are in the best club in Berlin!

Finn Johannsen in Paloma

The Paloma Club is one of these clubs in Berlin which is not known by a lot of people. It’s located at the station Kottbusser Tor which is a very vibrant area to grab a drink before actually visiting the party. From the outside it’s not very easy to spot the Paloma club as its located on the first floor of a larger building. Still it’s a club which often offers a very solid line-up and has reasonable prices.

Kölsch 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.

P.E.A.R.L. in RSO.Berlin

A club called RSO.Berlin (Revier Südost) is located a bit further east of the center in a district called Schöneweide. This club was opened by the people who previously ran the Griessmuehle. Because Berlin has this awesome public transport network you can still reach this club within 30 minutes from almost everywhere. Just take the S9 to station Schöneweide and after only 5 minutes walk you can see RSO.Berlin. Besides a club the Revier Südost also offers flea markets, a beergarden and many other events and activities.

The Ritter Butzke is one of the clubs in Berlin which is represented in my party-calendar almost every month.

Britta Arnold in Kater Blau

One of the most popular clubs Berlin has ever known was the Kater Holzig. If you have read my article about this club, you probably know that it was quite a unique place to party in Berlin. But unfortunately the club had to close down and Berlin lost one of his great venues. But not long after closing down the owners opened a new place which is called Kater Blau. The club is located directly at the Spree and still has this same unique feel to it. The door-policy did not change so it is still not easy to get in, but the place is definitely worth a visit.

You can listen to it here.

  1. hello there, me and my friends we will visit berlin the coming year, 09-13.01.2020.
    We love techno and electronic music. Surely we are going to visit some of your recommendations. Are those day any specific parties ? Also we would like to know, if they are more options for techno bars -clubs which basicity are mostly well known from the locals.

    thanks for your help.

  2. Hi JOB!! My name is Eduardo, from the Canary Islands. Thanks for your article. One question: My girlfriend and me are visiting Berlin from 26th December to 2th January. We’re thinking about a great “New Year” party. We love dance/house music. What club would you recommend me? Do you think this festival/party “HYTE Berlin NYE” is a good idea?

    Cheers.

      Hey Eduardo,

      have a look in our NYE-Party Article. You will probably find a great party there.

      HYTE has an awesome line-up but it’s quite a lot of money for a party in Berlin.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Cheers!

  3. Hello!
    I’m visiting Berlin on November 18, 19 and 20. Are there any parties happening these nights? Can you recommend a club for each night? I like most genres of electronic music. I love darkwave and EBM/industrial. Mostly I just want to go where the night will be fun and I can dance for hours! 🙂

    • Job Reply

      Hey,

      You are arriving tomorrow, right? I would check out the Tresor on Monday and the Gretchen on Wednesday.

      Enjoy!

  4. I’m also looking for some trance events in Berlin this weekend! Some class trance from the late 90s or early 2000s would be awesome but seems so hard to find anywhere. Besides that, do you know anywhere that plays classic rock from 60s-70s such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, etc.?

    • Job Reply

      Hi Dustin,

      it is mainly techno in Berlin but there are pubs and bars where they play 60-70s music. I just never went to these. The only one I know with live-music is Belushi’s. But there are a lot of young folks there too.

      Sorry that I could not help you that much. Hope you will have a great time anyway!

  5. Hi Job!

    Awesome blog, thanks a ton for sharing your insights.

    Are you planning to share the party plan for August?

    and, can I set up a notification alert to get informed when you upload new content?

    Cheers

    • Job Reply

      Hi Stef,

      yes we will also publish a party-calendar for August. It will be published after the last weekend in June.

      The best way to get informed is probably following us on Facebook.

      Best wishes!
