Party Earth Review A proud holdout against Kreuzberg’s health-crazed-hipster revolution, Room 77 is a gritty rock bar with a Tex-Mex menu that’d make a yoga mom cry. On sunny afternoons, casual locals and young tourists day drink on the sidewalk patio, enjoying several varieties of imported beer and debating between nachos, chili, or – as ... read full review of Room 77
Party Earth Review A biker-style bar with Persian rugs on the ceiling and painted flames on the walls, Wild at Heart is a popular live music venue known for its alternative scene, as evidenced by the punk rock stickers and posters plastered on every available surface that pay tribute to past performances.

Party Earth Review It may look like a hole in the wall from the outside, but inside, Cassiopeia has transformed a former factory into a stylish, alternative club complex that retains the old industrial rusticity of East Berlin. The cavernous structure, located past the front gate and on the left side of the courtyard, houses dance floors ... more
Party Earth Review Named for its one ping-pong table that everyone plays on simultaneously, Dr. Pong is a rather spartan bar with one room dedicated to playing ping-pong and another to listening to music and sipping concoctions from the list of “Schlong Drinks.” The bare gray walls and mismatched sofas and armchairs are not aesthetically ... more

There’s little denying that the scene around the bars and clubs in Berlin represents some of the best nightlife in all of Europe.
Many of Berlin’s clubs are especially stunning, with multiple levels, creative layouts, and state-of-the art lighting systems, yet all but a few clubs are open to just about everyone – exclusive door polices are not the norm in Berlin. Regardless of style, the Berlin club scene is full of hardcore dancing and people partying well into the night.
Fortunately for non-clubbers, Berlin’s alternative and progressive attitude lends the city an exceptional diversity throughout its various bars and clubs, lounges, pubs, and, of course beer gardens.
Additionally, a wonderful come-as-you-are mindset is reflected in the wohnzimmer (living room) style adopted by many bars and cafés, which creates a relaxed environment and evokes the feel of a private house party.
