General ( non techno/house dance scene) nightclubs?


I am visiting Berlin next month with some friends.

I have read guides/reviews of nightclubs both on this site and elsewhere, and the almost all mentioned seem to be techno/house night clubs or else very exclusive set type of clubs.

As this is not necessarily our scene, could any one recommend any more general/mainstream nightclubs that are good, or alternatively are there any late bars that remain busy and lively at the latter part of the night?

Hi Gary, I have the same taste as you and for us 'normal' people, Berlin nightlife is a bit tricky....doesnt match up to the greatness that is the UK lol!

However, after 7 yrs of living here, I found a bar called AMPM in Hackescher Markt which plays 'normal' night out music, plus Matrix at Warschauer Str.

When I told my workmates of my music tastes, they dismissed me as having the mentality of a 14 yr old....just cos I hate techno or goth!

Hi Gary,

if you search something really different then I might have another option for you: Go to the Disco called "Q-Dorf". It is really typically German and not everyone`s taste. But you definitely won't find a posh atmosphere there, moreover the contrary. They play mainstream and lots of Partyhits. Barely House or Techno. A lot of Germans go there. It's located in the City West on the Ku'damm. By the way: it is Berlin's biggest disco.

Have a nice trip!


OH Barcelona

Berlin, Germany

I can't stand techno/house music so I know of a few clubs who play differen music. :-) I quite like the frannz club @ Kulturbrauerei. You usually have a concert in the early evening and later it will be club with mixed music for everyones taste.

I also like the Kalkscheune when there is "Die schöne Party" or the "MaBakerClub".

I also like the After Work Party from Radio Eins every Thursday at the Trompete at Lützowplatz.

If you like heavy metal/rock music than you might like the After Work Party from Radio Star FM every Thursday at the Sage Club.
