Top 5 Berlin nightlife locations

1. Go to the KulturBrauerei
KulturBrauerei has went a long way from the original purpose it was built for (as brewery, in the 1800s). Today, it represents one of the best places where you can get a taste of the Berlin nightlife, as it hosts a number of clubs that are definitely worth checking out (such as Soda Club).
If you go to the entrance on Schönhauser Allee, you will have the opportunity to discover the old boiler rooms of the brewery. These have been transformed into concert venues, allowing you to check out the hottest bands of the moment. Add to that summer outdoor concerts and you have the perfect recipe for one of the best things to do in Berlin at night time.

2. Pay a visit to the Tacheles
The history of this place is perhaps just as amazing as the number of possibilities for entertainment. Your local guide can tell you tons about it. The old Jewish department store was damaged in the 2nd World War, being then left as a ruin and only transformed into a cultural venue after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Nowadays, it is a great place to enjoy nightlife in Berlin, with a myriad of options being presented in front of your eyes. There is live music to be enjoyed at Café Zapata or the techno & house club to be savored on the top floor. Bonus, live jam bands in the courtyard.

3. Party in Kreuzberg
In the Berliner neighborhood known as Kreuzberg, you will find one of the most popular clubs of the city, Watergate. If you want to see a classic techno club and enjoy the LED lighting system that has served as inspiration for all the other clubs in the world, you have arrived at the right place.
Watergate is the perfect place to experience Berlin nightlife firsthand, with the Water Floor providing an amazing view directly to the Spree (Berlin’s river). Plus, there is a floating deck terrace, allowing you to enjoy a splendid view of the sunrise. Let your host know that you want to go to this spot and they’ll take you there at exactly the precise time!

4. Enjoy your night on Friedrichshain
After the fall of the Berlin wall, many clubs were formed by the young, alternative crowd in abandoned buildings. If you go to Friedrichshain, the club to check out is Berghain, located in a converted power station. This club just goes to prove that the nightlife in Berlin is still very much about techno music.
Enjoy the house music played in the upstairs Panorama bar and do not hesitate to get your taste of electroacoustic music every Thursday, especially if you are looking for a unique party experience. Your local guide will tell you more about how to fully experience this cool place. Berghain is a place where you can appreciate the freedom of the German people, have fun and listen to some pretty great music at the same time.


5. Dance in Mitte
The central part of Berlin might be home to a number of impressive clubs but nothing compares to Haus des Reisens (former Soviet tower block) and Weekend, the club you will find there. A powerful expression of Berlin nightlife, this club is located on the 12th and 15th floors, plus there is a roof terrace bar that provides some pretty interesting entertainment opportunities, which your host will tell you lots about.
Rave, house and techno music are at home in this club, so you should definitely prepare yourself for a one-of-a-kind going out experience. Plus, given the high altitude, you will be able to enjoy a splendid view of Berlin. Bonus: the famous tech house group, Tiefschwarz, performs here on a regular basis.

Drive through the History of Postdam

We learned so much about the past and present of this amazing city with Miha. He gave us a glimpse of what living in Berlin has to offer for people of different religious and ethnic backgrounds, varying ages and sexual preferences. He is modern, down to earth but with both a deep appreciation of history and enthusiasm for a greener future. Bravo Miha. You have two new American friends.

The Best of Hidden Berlin

This was my third tour with Martin and he never fails to impress. This time we did a mostly customized tour which began in Potsdamer Platz and ended with a well-earned beer just past Christopher Isherwood's house. During the tour visited lots of historically and politically relevant sites. But the highlight (believe it or not) was likely when Martin charmed his way past the gatekeeper of the world's most decadent powder room and allowed us to stand mouths agape in wonder for several minutes. It was a place that really needs to be seen to be believed. Martin always knows where to find magic in this city.

Berlin Like a Local: Drinking Experience

All 7 in our group enjoyed the "Beer Tour" experience with Alexander. He met us when and where he said he would. After the first quick stop, we walked the streets with a beer in our hands "like a local Berliner". The next stop was a delightful beer garden where my wife had "the best beer she has ever had" and a pretzel. The craft beer stop added yet a different view of Berlin beers. We ended at a restaurant for a light supper and with yet a different Berlin beer experience. Alex was friendly, talkative, and added the personal touch making the tour well worth it!
