It was so smokey at the Beardyman concert it was unreal...apart from the bar staff and the bouncers all the staff (sound, lighting, coat check) were openly smoking and so were a lot of the punters there. If you don't like smok then don't go to a concert there

Been here twice for trap events, incredible music and awesome crowd, look out for events and go jam! Pretty good location, big wardrobe, drinks are not cheap but affordable, smoking inside but it doesnt feel like a smoky place) Also usually the entrance is 4 euros cheaper before 12 or 12:30, so the club gets full faster.

Personally, I feel that this place was a great primer for me as an internationally inexperienced club-goer during my first stay in Berlin. It's a medium-ish venue with multiple stages and a "no-frills" attitude (dare I say minimal?). I'll never claim to be an authority on going out in Berlin but do your own research and give the spot a... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
