Mitte, Berlin –
Tucked away near the corner of Friedrichstrasse and Unter den Linden, Cookies has quietly become one of Berlin’s most popular club destinations, despite being open only two days a week.
The unassuming entrance is unmarked by a sign, so the only clues that a fabulous club experience lies within are the velvet rope and handful of doormen waiting to wave patrons in to the large converted warehouse.
Once inside, those in the mood for hip-hop and rap can choose the smaller room on the right, while those who prefer house music can choose to go left and hit the dance floor in the cavernous main room, whose dim red and blue lighting is reflected by square crystal chandeliers.
In both rooms, DJs pump music at volumes that make conversation impossible, which seems to be just fine by the crowd of attractive, trendy twenty-somethings who show up to dance, not to talk.
A lounge area sectioned off by a series of long black bars offers respite to overheated dancers, who settle into plush velvet sofas for a drink or two before heading back to Cookies' dance floor to bring in the dawn.
Trendy international set, mostly 20s and early 30s.
DJs spin house, rap, and hip-hop.
On weekdays, the S/U-Bahn stops running between 12:30am and 5:30am, so patrons might need an alternative means of getting home during that time.
