Scattered old-school electronics, metallic robots hanging from the walls ... read full review of Astro Bar

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.
