This naughty nightclub is another Berlin institution.
Opened by a pornographic filmmaker in 1994, it is infamous for the eye-popping goings-on you are likely to see inside.
Located in the heart of Berlin hipster hub Prenzlauer Berg, 8mm is an authentic rough-and-ready rock-and-roll dive bar that wears its attitude and its beats proudly on its sleeve.
Proudly owned by employees and solely dedicated to the love of music, the bar supplements this affection with top-notch DJ sets, occasional concerts, cheap drinks, and a steady flow of regulars mixed in with a few in-the-know tourists and the occasional rock star sighting.
Berghain This one really needs no introduction - Berghain is the most famous of all Berlin clubs.
When you go back to your home country, the first question most people will ask is almost certainly “have you been to Berghain yet?
These cool kids take their inspiration and bar philosophy from bands like Velvet Underground and The Stooges, with soft spots for punk, experimental, and any other subset of rock-n-roll you can come up with.
8mm balances all the thrashing with tip-top bar service from a snarky and smart international crew that will have you planning on becoming a regular fixture on the guest set list.
Café Rosa Rosa-Luxemburg Straße 41U-Bahn Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz contender for Berlin's smallest bar, Café Rosa makes up for what it lacks in size with friendliness and personality.
Berghain also literally means ‘mountain grove”, the serenity of which image couldn't be less fitting for the heavy techno which pounds patrons into the dust into the late hours of Monday morning.
Berghain attracts some of the most famous names in house and techno music and is top of most people’s wishlist for a perfect Berlin weekend.
Hidden away in a back building near Mehringdamm in the ‘Bergmannkiez’ area, Clash is just the punk-metal bar that you were expecting to find in Kreuzberg.
The sprawling space is filled with a large number of tables and also includes a beer garden in warmer weather.
