Berlin Party Town
Pubs, clubs, parties. Experience night life without a closing
You always should remember that Berlin has no official closing
time, therefore you can mostly party around the clock. There are
after work parties, starting early evening, as well as after parties
which actually start in the morning.
You have to get a grip on the Berlin rhythm. Since there is no
hurry to get a party started that has no ending, no one starts
partying early – except tourists. Normally the evening starts
with some food, followed by some performance (theatre, concert) and
then party time starts around midnight.
For meeting people and making new acquaintances you can start an
easy evening at open hot spots like Admiralbrücke,
Brücke or Alexanderplatz.
At these places mostly hundreds, sometimes thousands come together
for a beer or to get the party started. At these hot spots you will
hear every language of the world, so you won’t have a problem
to get the latest tips about parties and clubs. Berlin citizens are
very forthcoming and mostly proud about their district (called
Kiez), so don’t be shy to ask someone on the street where to
find a hot spot in your area.
Berlin music and party scene is very broad and you can find
anything from techno to electro, from reggae to ragga, swing to
metal, gothic to ballroom. Great ways to decide how to start (ca.
8-10 p.m.): either you know an artist you want to see, start in a
live pub or you grab some drinks and get to know new people.
Since the most prominent party area is in Kreuzberg and Mitte you
also can take the underground and get out at some big station,
simply follow some people – Berlin is easy. For some drinks
you should simply start in the next pub or bar you see. Grab a drink
and start talking with people.
Pubs with live music are very popular in Berlin. The Junction Bar
(Rock,Jazz, Post Punk) in Kreuzberg, Bassy Cowboy Club (Rockabilly,
Rock’n’Roll, Country) in Berlin-Mitte or the Kaffee Burger (mixed styles,
Alternatives) also Berlin-Mitte are places to start with a club
concert and party all night long.
If you don’t want to decide the right away you can travel to
(Prenzlauer Berg). It was a brewery and today it is an event and
party area. Check out the program and decide about concert and
parties. The nearby area is specially equipped to handle your pre
and post party desires (drinks and food).
Parties start around midnight – when the clubs are opening.
There are some world-class highlights of clubbing in Berlin. Berghain, Tresor and Watergate are the most popular
clubs for House, Techno and Electro. Soda Club (@ Kulturbrauerei)
and Bohannon Club are the
places for fans of RnB, HipHop and Black Music.
Everybody loves somebody sometimes and therefore you can meet your
someone anytime and anywhere. There are famous singles parties in
Berlin – and some where you can get anything. The biggest of
all parties for singles surely is Fisch
sucht Fahrrad (Fish seeks bicycle). At Clärchens Ballhaus
it is not really a singles party but the mingling surely can get a
little intense – and it’s a Berlin citizen favorite.
