The Scene

Originally a brewery in the 1800s, KulturBrauerei has been transformed over the years into a cultural complex that is now home to a diverse collection of theaters, galleries, clubs, and restaurants.

Originally a brewery in the 1800s, KulturBrauerei has been transformed over the years into a cultural complex that is now home to a diverse collection of theaters, galleries, clubs, and restaurants.

Situated around a spacious common courtyard, the red brick buildings combine beautiful details of the original architecture with elegant modern touches to create a truly exceptional arts and entertainment venue that accommodates 20,000 visitors on any given weekend.

Highlights of the complex include Pool and Cigars, a chic locale where patrons gather under the gilded ceilings to enjoy expensive cigars and a game of billiards, and the upscale Soda Club, a trendy restaurant and club.

Near the Schönhauser Allee entrance are Kesselhaus and Maschinenhaus, former boiler rooms now used as concert venues small enough for intimate shows, but large enough to draw name bands like MGMT and My Morning Jacket. And during the summer, indoor/outdoor concerts and festivals bring in myriad artists and performances.

Events at KulturBrauerei often attract thousands of people and it’s possible to get an all-access ticket in order to wander freely and explore the complex’s numerous offerings.

Day and Night - Find your place
Jeffrey W. Aug 7, 2013
This place is located inside a courtyard in the district of Prenzlauer Berg and is built almost like a fortress. It has walls which border the busy thoroughfare of Schönhauser Allee, which carries cars, trams and above-ground trains leading residents in and around the city. If you want to see a film, the movie complex is a perfect place to escape to - it is one of the features inside the KulturBrauerei. There are a few cafes during the day, namely a place that serves classic German beers and a mean cuisine to complement. At night, you will find the place takes on a party center (the word "courtyard" is key here), with a main club that does not disappoint - club goers are always either in line or chilling outside on a break. The draw here is that it is a bit of a step up from the typical Berlin alternative scene. So if you are in the mood to dress a little fancier, see a bit more, and have cleaner floors to prove it, then this might be the place to see. Sidenote: during December, one of the famous Christmas markets is located here. Not to be missed!
Not the Berlin Experience
Sam S. Jan 8, 2013
The Kulturbrauerei has an intriguing backstory and little else to offer. It is no longer the brewery that its name suggests and therefore is limited by its unwillingness to adapt to the grunge scene that is so wonderfully unique to Berlin. The building is cool and I was fortunate to be there on New Years Eve where a 15 dance floor set-up made sure that the Kulturbrauerei gave its best possible impression. Still, if you are looking for something typical of Berlin and don't want to risk not getting admitted to Berghain, there are many other places such as Tresor that I would recommend. On the other hand, Kulturbrauerei does offer an escape of sorts to that grunge scene and it is more than possible to have a great night out here. It's location isn't the best but it is close to a metro station and since there is no true city center in Berlin, odds are it isn't too out of the way.
Good for the young
Amster M. Nov 18, 2012
Warning: There is NO brewery left in the KulturBrauerei! Not like they say there is, although I feel like it was definitely help boost the place on the fun-o-meter. We actually had a good time at their club, and it was an early weekday, but it was full of young students. The guys hit the dance floor, but I remember most of my time sitting on the sidelines and talking. We all had fun, but the place didn't have much else to offer. The building is cool, but the people and music is nothing you can't find better somewhere else in Berlin I think.
