We tried going here on a Friday night... however when we got to the front we were immediately turned away as there were "too many guys inside". Obviously frustrated and amazed we stayed around for a bit to notice the male dominated queue swiftly enter the club. Noticeably a group of 4 German guys behind us, entering without an issue....

Me and my friends visited here, we have long waited a visit to this legendary club and we were not disappointed. Sante, Sidney Charles and Russ Yallop were all playing B2B till 8am!! What a treat. Amazing artwork on the wall outside whilst queuing too.

Managed to get along to Watergate courtesy of my man Tooli who was putting on a Local Talk night there. Fortunately managed to skip the queue, which otherwise looked like a 40 minute wait. Once inside, the dance floor downstairs is cool, the DJ booth hugs the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river Spree. The time to get a... More

Went to this club last October by myself aged 49 whilst visiting Berlin, queued a while but friendly young Berliner kept me company. No problem getting in, fantastically classy club, amazing lighting and brilliant music..... Really lovely bar girl ( tip..always offer the bar staff a drink immediately and you will be served first every time after that! Works everywhere)... More

The view there is amazing if you look outside... you can even go outside on a wood deck.. however I think the atmosphere is too heavy, the music is deep house and most of the people are drugged...

After reading the reviews on here we decided to give it a go. Glad we did. Friendly club, Tech house so not too hard. Two rooms, two bars, busy but well managed. Good club. They were turning people away but on this night we were lucky and got in.

We turned up at 1215 on a Saturday night. Queued for 10 mins. People were getting turned away. We got in. Fun and friendly club. Bar staff and cloakroom staff really friendly too. Music was Tech house. Two rooms, good vibes.

We found this club on a Thursday night. Music was house/techno - not our type of music but we had a great time anyway. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
