Bar / Club
Party Earth Review 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 ... more

A small club conveniently located in Hackescher Markt, Bang Bang is a favorite of indie rock fans in their late teens and twenties, as well as British expats who show up in droves for the bi-weekly Britpop ... more
Beer Garden / Club
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
Revaler Strasse 99/Simon-Dach Strasse
Party Earth Review For late-night hip-hop parties, the massive 2BE club is the place to be on the weekends. From the outside, the club looks like an abandoned warehouse, but inside patrons find a quasi-stylish space where DJs spin rap and hip-hop and the crowd keeps the energy going until the sun comes up. Just around midnight, an animated ... more

Party Earth Review A small club with two faces, Avastar is a relaxing neighborhood bar during the week and a popular drum and bass venue on the weekends. Expansive windows and inviting velvet sofas lend a trendy air to the front of the bar, while the middle area takes on a more modern vibe where guests lounge on circular black leather sofas ... more
Party Earth Review With its immense windows framing the city lights and offering a spectacular view of the beautiful Oberbaumbrücke, the famous bridge spanning the Spree River, Watergate wows its patrons as soon as they step in the door. But the visuals don’t end there at this chic techno club. Two separate floors – the main floor and the ... more
Party Earth Review The scene of free-flowing bodies moving to the music greets patrons as they enter Sophienclub, an unpretentious and upbeat nightspot that draws an international crowd. There’s a trippy vibe in this long, narrow space, helped along by the low ceilings, red and black color scheme, and dim lighting, which is occasionally punctuated ... more
Party Earth Review Though it’s easy to find the colossal Tresor – clubbers just have to look for the giant smoke stacks and listen for the wild techno beats – getting lost inside this enormous club is a near certainty. The Batterieraum, which is the main area of the club’s three floors and the easiest to find, features a large dance floor ... more
Köpenicker Strasse 70
Club / Pizza Place
Party Earth Review Despite the numerous club options in Berlin, Club der Visionaere manages to separate itself from the pack, most notably by moving the club experience outdoors. The sprawling multilevel space, which overlooks one of the many canals that run through Kreuzberg, makes an immediate impression with a pair of giant backlit ... more

Club / Lounge
Party Earth Review Rosi’s provides a club experience that can only be described as uniquely Berlin. Formerly an industrial complex, the space is now an edgy venue whose freewheeling party atmosphere attracts an alternative crowd.

Café / Club
Party Earth Review As the name implies, AM to PM is a multifaceted establishment that provides food and a friendly café environment by day and an energetic club scene by night. Outside under the trees is a delightful terrace whose hanging chairs and tiki torches do their best to create a tropical vibe. On warm evenings, in fact, the terrace ... more
Am Zwirngraben 2
Berlin has not-so-quietly earned a reputation for having some of the best nightlife in all of Europe, and the clubs in Berlin specifically feature some of the most mind-blowing nightlife experiences in the entire world.
Many of the Berlin clubs are simply massive and visually stunning, featuring multiple floors, creative designs and layouts, and state-of-the art lighting and sound systems, and all but a few clubs are open to the masses. The big clubs here also have global reputations for bringing in the best DJs and the craziest crowds and any true clubber would be remiss not to experience them.
Not to say there aren’t ultra exclusive joints as well, where some of the stingiest bouncers can be found manning the doors of high-end haunts. In Mitte, German celebrities and the see-and-be-seen crowd can be found enjoying bottle service and VIP conditions while long red-roped lines are packed with eager made-up partiers waiting to get in.
Berlin’s club scene especially caters to dubstep, house, and techno lovers as some of the genre’s best DJs play on a nightly basis. But for those looking for no-frills clubs without cover charges or simply something different like comedy or jazz, the city provides ample variety for other options as well.
Tying it all together, the late night train service makes it a snap to hit any clubbing area of the city and of course making it back home without worrying about driving or taking cabs.
