Although the club itself is quite typical Berlin, the prices are not. Be prepared to pay €20 entrance and €4 for a beer. But once inside, you forget about that quickly, due to the amazing electronic music pounding through the soundsystem all night. The line-up is always good, and you can switch between the two floors as well. The crowd... More

Staff were incredibly rude. We queued for 30 mins only to be turned away because we didn't pass the test of "what music are we playng?". We went purely on a recommendation so did not know the 'appropriate' answer. We were treated rudely and turned away for no reason after 2 of our group has already entered. Terrible staffing and...

Queued for 40 minutes, to be then turned away for no reason. We had pretty dresses on, were not drunk at all, and looked respectable , but as soon as the woman heard we were English we were told that we needed to go somewhere else. She looked us up and down as if we were vermin. Disgusting attitude. We... More

With absolutely rude attitude the bouncers on the door look at you and if you happen to be solo you're not allowed to get in, even if you know the venue that night. No reasons, just "because i said so"

Don't go there. The security outside don't even arrive to be elitist, just chooses you randomly. They look at you and ask which DJ is there and you don't know the name, you're done, they don't allow you to enter anymore. They look at you and somehow something passes in their mind and they just say, you don't enter, the... More

Great music, views, people and times! It's open at all hours and I've been at all kinds of random times and it hasn't disappointed me yet! Must go.

No problems entering for two of us tourists (1M 1F) in our late 20s on a Wednesday night. Dress down for sure, the crowd had a mix of tourists and germans. Dress code is jeans, sneakers, tee-shirt. Who can rave in heels srsly Check the music lineup before you go

Definitely worth visiting for the Berlin techno scene. Music is fairly diverse (techno) and the location is really interesting since it is on the water. Getting in is basically luck - so try again if you don't get in the first time.

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.
