Scuba in Aeden

Aeden (or ÆDEN) is a rather new Berliner club which opened its doors in June 2021. Some of you might have partied in the Chalet before: The Aeden took over that location. This club is located in the middle of Kreuzberg on the so called Lohmühleninsel. The club is basically a large garden so it’s perfect for lovely open-air-events. The Aeden offers on clubnights in the weekend but in the evenings you can also visit many awesome concerts. There is space for about 350 people so make sure you do not arrive too late.

Marcel Dettmann in Berghain

Berghain is probably the most famous techno club in Berlin. If you are looking for a special experience or 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!

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.

P.E.A.R.L. in About:Blank

A club which is located directly at station Ostkreuz is About Blank. If you get out of the train-station on the southern side, you will spot the line of people about 200 meters to the right of the station. The club is famous for its solid techno nights but there are also special events like the gay-party Homopatik. The club has several floors and a large garden which is especially awesome in the summer. If you want to read more, you can check out our article about the About:Blank.

P.E.A.R.L. : Solid techno music

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.

This is one of these parties in Berlin which starts on Friday and keeps going until Monday. You pay entrance once and are allowed to get back in the whole weekend.

Jiggler in Hoppetosse

The Hoppetosse is a club which is located closely to the Birgit and the Club der Visionäre. It’s a so called sister-venue of that last club. The Hoppetosse is a unique club as it’s located on a docked boat. You will be able to look out over the Spree while you are partying. This makes it one of the best open-air location in Berlin. The club does not offer a party every single weekend so it’s best to have a look at the website before visiting.

Isabeau Fort 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.

Isabeau Fort: Our favourite of the Wilde Möhre Festival

Every year we visit the Wilde Möhre Festival. One of the highlights is always the liveset of Isabeau Fort. In 2020 we had a chat with her after her liveset and she is such a sweetheart. She was genuinely excited and her fanbase has increased a lot in the last years. During her sets you can see how she interacts with her crowd and really enjoys what she is doing. Go and see her at this party in Berlin, you will not regret it. You can find a liveset in the Sisyphos of June 2022 here.

Ron Wilson in Tresor

The Tresor is one of the most unique techno-clubs in Berlin. The 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 bunker 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 strict as clubs like Sisyphos and Berghain.

  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!
