    This is where the good sound is, and where the Berlin people come to play...

    I went for Non-Stop Bhangra event. The music was good. But it was very crowded. We all had fun dancing on Punjabi beats.

    Great club! Great sound! Make sure you check the calendar; they're frequently closed, not playing music I want to hear, or hosting private events. I've only been there by invitation.

    Warehouse-y, cool club vibe. The upstairs offers two alternative hangouts to the main floor, including a cool and cozy dancefloor with its own bar. There's ample outdoor space and an art gallery, too. Read more

    Great sound, great music, but horrible crowd management. Had to wait 10 minutes to get a beer. The club is completely filled that it's nearly impossible to move.
