U: Rosenthaler Platz
Mitte, Berlin –
A large and lovable stuffed version of King Kong stands near the entrance of this venue, whose big leather sofas and haphazard décor makes King Kong Klub feel more like a lounge than the dance club it is.
Illuminated by red and green lights, most of the red-walled space is consumed by an immense leopard-skin bar surrounded by kitschy objects like a 1950s TV with a monkey perched on top and a mural of King Kong destroying Tokyo.
The small dance floor in the back flickers with shadows cast by a movie screen projecting offbeat videos that may or may not correspond to the music, and it’s easy to get lost in the cushions and trippy tunes as the cool night air streams through the open windows.
Also frequented by pub crawlers who spice things up as they mix with the regulars, King Kong is a quirky little place where patrons can chill out, meet some unusual characters, and try out their dance moves.
All types, late teens to 40s.
DJs every night spin a variety of music including indie, punk rock, and 60s rock and roll. Occasional live bands and Sunday night movies. The bar provides a computer with free Internet access.
Cover charge only for live bands, usually €3. Beer €2.50–€3.30, wine €3.30, cocktails €4.50–€5.50, mixed drinks €4.50, shots €2–€4.50.
Saturday nights draw the best crowd. Arrive around 1am.
