The Adagio beckons you with a medieval setting of floors cobbled together from rough-hewn stone and wood, with the walls and ceiling displaying paintings. The impressive, cathedral-like dome attracts a diversified clientele of cognescenti, affluent tourists and couples.
The 40 seconds is one of Berlin’s most popular clubs. The entrance is at water level on Potsdamer Street. The penthouse on the 8th floor is reached with an elevator ride taking a precise 40 seconds. An expansive rooftop terrace affords a view of Gedächtniskirche past the Victory Column, Tiergarten and the new Central station.
Quasimodo is one of Berlin’s oldest jazz clubs and one of the best-recognized clubs for live music in Europe. It has all the characteristics a genuine club should not be without: a jazz “dive” in its purest form, located underneath the Delphi movie palace and Quasimodo café. The club is within walking distance from the hotel.
The HAVANNA in Berlin’s Schöneberg district has been in business since 1997. Four dance floors and seven bars stand ready to accommodate late night fun-seekers. The music is eclectic and a broad range of entertainment and live concerts are guarantors for a “sophisticated club experience”.
GoyaGoya used to be the former Metropol theater. It was rehabbed from the ground up a few years back—only to rise from the ashes as a very upscale party and event location at Nollendorf Square.
The club is stylishly, indeed breathtakingly located in Berlin’s City West, vis-à-vis the Theater des Westens and a few steps from the Kranzler Eck. Beneath the sail of the Kant triangle and parallel to the name-sake waterfall, we take a few steps down.
Spindler & Klatt
The “Bigsize”, Kreuzberg’s coolest club restaurant, set in a former warehouse, offers a contemporary dining experience hard by the Spree River. In summer, a large outdoor terrace and sophisticated entertainment program invite to linger.
Arena Badeschiff Berlin
The BADESCHIFF claims to be Europe’s most unusual attraction for swimming—a pool floating on the Spree River. Since 2004, the Badeschiff has remained one of the coolest meeting places: swimming pool with open-air bar, concert venue, panoramic view and an ideal hangout for hipsters.
