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.

This place is what a proper club should be about: not too big, close to the DJs, awesome view, decent people. The line-ups can get unruly so prepare accordingly. In the Summer the outdoor patio add to the great vibe. It is well worth a visit. Bye the way, you can enjoy some great food at burgermeister afterwards!

Never been racially abused in my life so this was a new experience!! The lady on the door was obviously a descendant from the Gestapo! Racist, small minded, uneducated, fat and ugly. Completely ruined my Berlin experience with her rude comments, quote "why are you even here?". Your club is a fascist, boring, attention seeking, wannabe tip! Total embarrassment of... More

Not to get on a high horse or anything but a lot of the negative reviews for this place have been from people that had no idea who was playing on the night in question that they tried to go or who have been 'smartly dressed' and refused entry. This is one of the quintessential features I noticed about Berlin... More

awesome club with great music and perfect location! after spending Friday night/Saturday morning here (highly recommend drunken chat with friends at the terrace on the river at 5am ;-) went to their open air summer party in some park on the outskirts of town on Sunday- think Ibiza beach party in Berlin! - what else would you need! Kreuzberg is... More

The setting is somewhat magical - picture yourself floating upon the water and peering out of floor to ceiling glass at the river, cooly rippling and sparkling, silver and navy in the moonlight right beside you. Techno and Tech-house at just the right pace, not too full on or obscure, and not too soft. There are different spaces and little... More

When we got to tghe front of the line and were asked for ID's and presented all of them, the bi**hy woman at the front who collected money refused... More

This is definitely one of the best clubs in Berlin. Only downsides are the waiting time in the cue and prices, but well worth it. The ‘Elite Clubs’ mobile app by EOSOS Elite has this venue listed as part of the best venues in the city. You should check it out, has not let me down yet.
