Awesome club . . . ignore the reviews that say it's hard to get in!

Watergate Is a great place, I can say I went with Expectations, and they delivered! Small Club, Sound was on point, as was the crowd...Just people who are there for the Music. Nothing more, Nothing Less. Lee Jones has been on my checklist for a number of years now, blew me away. Had no issues with Club Policies, I think... More

This is one of the best clubs I've ever been to, but I'll come back to that. I need to address all the negative reviews below about the door policy as I think people are just angry that they got turned away. If you turn up at any club in the world in a large group of males, or inappropriately... More

Myself and a friend were turned away for not being German by the woman on the door. Absolute disgrace, It seems (judging by the rest of the comments on here) that it wasn't just us and this racist behavior is a common occurrence with this member of staff, surely the club must know about this and if this is their...

One opf the most important place for tecno and electronic music in the world, not just in Berlin. They have a web page to check for a nice presentation movie and to have a look at the program with the performing DJs.

Went here on Sunday morning after leaving Chalet, upstairs with the LED ceiling was cool but downstairs where Villalobos was playing was where the party was at. Really great atmosphere, people really going for it, no posing, no selfies, everyone lost in the music, the place was dripping with sweat, great fun indeed! We left at 12pm on Sunday afternoon...

Unfortunately it was raining the night we visited Watergate, so we couldn't enjoy the outdoor terrace very much. Although, the view from the club was amazing, and the music was really good. The drinks were average-priced, from 6 to 9 euros a drink. The led lights in the ceiling were a nice detail as well. All in all, we had... More

I love watergate. I have heard it's hard to get into Berlin clubs as a tourist so being British I was slightly apprehensive. I do understand this unspoken rule- if you live in Berlin you want to enjoy the cities best nightclubs, not spend your night dodging tourists who are just there to take photos or whatever. My friend and... More

Compared to other Clubs in Berlin, i did NOT enjoy Watergate. I was told on entry that the security staff would be "keeping a close eye on me" due to the fact i am British, which left me feeling slightly edgy for no reason at all. The soundsystem and the music were great, but the atmosphere wasn't the friendliest. I... More

The sound is good, although too minimal for my taste. Great view of the spree river makes the most of the experience. The stuck up people ruin the vibe, though. Good place do see and be seen, but only that. Save the action to some place else

This is a great club. Finally a real night club in Berlin where everyone is seated in the street and in parks having beer. To us it was a very strange night out culture, but in Berlin it is a classic example of clubbing. The terrace of the club that's on the water is connected to the establishment. The girl... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood 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 neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
