Hi Everybody, We came from GVA Switzerland to see if the club is a great place to party on the 2nd of August 2014, but the girl at the door told us it was not possible to go in. We were well dressed with money to spend and motivated to have a great time in this club, but it was... More

I've been there twice. I did not find the door policy bad at all, but they tend not to let you in if you're under 21 or over 40. Try to know who's playing if you really want to get in. Having said that, I would not recommend this club if you're looking for an authentic clubbing experience. I consider... More

If you are tourist, it doens't matter how you wear, how much money you can spend, they don't care. They allow to get in only people from the place or with girls. The selection based on this kind of topics is very frustrating and it doesn't put in a good light the city of Berlin and german people.

I went there for the first time 6 months ago and totally loved it: the music, the people and the location were great! I was in Berlin last weekend and was already really excited to go back there: What a disappointment! The music was okay, but I felt like the only reason most of the guys were there was to... More

I have been to Watergate more than five times and have been lucky enough not to get rejected. I have never been asked who was playing. It's one of my favorite clubs, lighting and sound on the top floor are amazing. On some days, the crowd would mostly be Berliners which is cool. I dont go to clubs to get... More

The riverfront location is nice, but that's about all this club has to recommend it. It's not horrible or anything, it's just mediocre when compared with all the other choices in Berlin. It's not that big inside, and physically, can't compare to Berghain or even Tresor, the crowd inside was nice enough but mostly pretty uninteresting, the music and lights... More

Worth a visit. Music was very good (deep House) The lighting from across the river was unique. The club was a bit congested but definitely with visiting for a good nightout

The music is alright and the gimmick of the bar on the water is actually cool. Yet there are not enough toilets, and no real separation between the female and male toilets. what is very annoying is that there are only six stalls and people go to have sex in which leads to huge lines. Other than that it is... More

Seemed cool from the outside but after queuing for 45 minutes, I was refused entry based on my race and gender. Persecution at its finest. Perhaps a step back into the darker times in history.
