Party Earth Kaffee Burger Review

The Scene

It's not a Café and no burgers are served, but once past the name it's easy to see why Kaffee Burger is a mainstay of East Berlin nightlife.

It’s not a café and no burgers are served, but once past the name it’s easy to see why Kaffee Burger is a mainstay of East Berlin nightlife.

This large bar and club gained fame in the early 2000’s when it was featured in Wladimir Kaminer’s book Russian Disco – which subsequently inspired the club’s wild, renowned Russendisko parties.

To this day, Kaffee Burger’s mix of ska, dance, folk, and rock music draws a boisterous crowd of Eastern European expats, but the club’s general popularity also attracts a larger international set looking for an authentic taste of Berlin and a rowdy place to drink.

The diversity of the music and patrons is reflected in the rather hodgepodge décor, which features 70s brown floral wallpaper and a dance floor bathed in a deep red glow in one room, and a 1950s diner motif complete with swiveling counter stools and a circular sea-foam green bar in the other room.

Somehow, though, the unique jumble of people, music, and atmosphere comes together perfectly at Kaffee Burger, especially on the weekends when patrons are known to create large, infectious dance circles that swirl energetically through the crowd.

If you've strolled through Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg and you are a little tired of the shops, cafes and Bars that's you'll find in any other big city, Cafe Burger might be the right place to dive in for an unexpectedly raw and fresh experience. Perhaps it's the old, slightly jaded look of this place that adds to the feeling of travelling back in time and place where being hip and status didn't matter. Once a month they put on a real Gypsy band for a reasonable entree fee and they just rock the house. Even my Dad loved it and he is 70. And I rarely see a mid-20 hipster take off his shirt and go mad with a band like that. Young and old mingle, it's easy to get to know people which is particularly handy when you travel alone and would like to connect. I vouch for it being an unpretentious environment... if you can open up to it. Saturday night, however, can get pretty crowded, so be prepared to let go, move with the crowd and be ready to sweat. Don't miss out, you'll love it.
Ho hum, hit or miss

We really hit Kaffee Burger on an off time, Monday at around 10pm. The guy said things would pick up after midnight, being an after hours bar and all, and when we came back it was pretty full. The look of the place has a great Berlin vintage feel, but the music is a hit or miss I think. And I missed, twice, once with obnoxious and cliche rockabilly and the other with typical techno. They wanted way too much at the door, but then again I'm picky on what I pay for with electronic music. Go there when it's free and it's late.
