Köpenicker Strasse 70
Kreuzberg / Neukölln, Berlin –
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 and a multitude of platforms upon which raucous clubbers, some scantily clad, showcase their dance moves.
To enhance the already high-energy effect, a screen projects images of dancing silhouettes, which puts everyone in the mood to get out on the floor.
The main bar area just past the dance floor, meanwhile, offers red lounge sofas and numerous semi-secluded nooks for more intimate conversation.
Hardcore clubbers tend to favor the Tresor Floor in the basement, an outrageous space with cages and techno so loud that revelers can feel it coursing through their veins – or at least through their feet, arms, and probably molars.
The upstairs 4+ Bar offers a slightly tamer, brighter, and less crowded space where guests can briefly escape the madness below or step onto the balcony for a view of the industrial ruins glowing dimly with colored lights.
A maze, to be sure, but Tresor is also a stunning, multi-faceted dance hall that patrons will certainly be amazed by, even when they forget how to get out.
Twice a year (once in the fall and once in the spring), Tresor hosts an international student night. These parties usually have a great lineup of DJs, tons of young people, and a reduced cover charge. Look for posters in and around the universities to see when the event is coming up.
Techno, house, and electro music lovers, late teens to early 30s.
Both new talent and big-name DJs spin electronica and techno music.
On Wednesdays, only the main room (the Batterieraum) is open.
Cover charge €5/W, €10–€15/F–Sa. Special events may cost more. Beer €3.50, mixed drinks €6.50–€7.50, shots €2.50–€3.50, drink deposit €0.50.
All three nights draw a big crowd, but the club peaks after 1am on Saturday.
