Mitte, Berlin –
White Trash Fast Food is a large club and restaurant that wears its wide-ranging influences on its sleeve.
Founded by American expats, the split-level restaurant is decorated in equal parts British pub and Western saloon, with kitschy Japanese martial arts movie posters thrown in for good measure – not to mention such witty touches as the line of laundry hanging out to dry near the stairwell.
While the simple menu of burgers and salads is the main draw during the day, White Trash shows its true face as a bar and live rock and roll venue at night, when tattooed hipsters gather at the bar to hang out, talk music, and wait for the rock bands to take the stage.
An even bigger venue – called the Diamond Lounge and located right downstairs – hosts international rock bands and is decked out with low ceilings, stone walls, and a caged-off bar area meant to replicate England’s legendary Cavern Club where the Beatles got their start.
With a consistently full roster of events including movie screenings, indie-rock dance nights, open stage nights for new talent, and even the occasional Quentin Tarantino-inspired dinner theater, White Trash Fast Food can keep patrons busy and entertained just about every night of the week.
If you arrive before 8pm for dinner or drinks, you can just stay on and check out the bands or DJs without worrying about the cover charge. And if you happen to have some talent but nowhere to show it off, White Trash is always on the lookout for new acts – just check the website for details.
All types and ages for lunch and dinner, younger hipsters at night, mostly early 20s.
Live bands upstairs and in the Diamond Lounge usually play rock, rockabilly, or blues. White Noise indie-rock dance night on Saturdays in the Diamond Lounge. Regular film screenings. Pinball machines.
