White Trash

White Trash

White Trash is a quirky, all-in-one club, burger joint, tattoo parlour, smoking cinema and tiki shack. After having some good old-fashioned American food in the restaurant upstairs or, why not, a spur-of-the-moment tattoo, head downstairs for music ranging from 50s rockabilly to retro and garage to punk.

 

Club der Visionaere

Situated on the banks of the canal, the spacious Club der Visionaere is known for its open-air partying, though it also hosts a small indoor dance floor.

The club gets busy on the weekends, when an after-hours crowd fills up the place. With a chilled atmosphere, a resident DJ playing house and electronic music, and cheap drinks, this is the perfect venue in which to unwind and dance after a long day.

Berghain/Panorama

Berlin’s premier clubbing spot, the unique Berghain/Panorama still welcomes thousands of clubbers every week, with mammoth queues just to get in the door. Boasting a simple décor, the imposingly large space attracts all sorts of clubbing enthusiasts, ready to party through the night and following day.

Golden Gate

Once upon a time, Golden Gate was a creaky joint lurking under a railway. These days, the place has rebranded itself as a cool, small techno joint that has brought some life to its still minimalistic interior.

Its small garden is popular on summer nights, while visitors can divide their time between a raucous dance floor and relaxed sitting area in cooler weather.
