Berlin has a reputation for having some of the best nightlife on the planet. Faced with the challenge of reviewing some of the clubs in the city we set off into the night and the early hours, it was thirsty work at times with the occasional distraction along the way but we soldiered on in our research. Here´s a little of what we found out.
Berghain is a monster. A night out this Leviathan is like achieving a clubbers badge of honour. Intense, hard, dark, pounding. OK it has reputation for being hard to get into sometimes and the massive queues but stroll along on a Sunday afternoon and viola no queues. Have to also mention the bar and club staff who are usually super friendly.
Probably says a lot that most Berliners party at Berghain on Sunday and another club the tiny Duncker in Prenzlauer Berg also has its best night on Sundays. Sunday partying arguably has a more relaxed feel to it in most cities – away from the forced ´must have fun´ Fri/Sat crowd. Anyway back to Duncker, great 80s and new wave music, intimate private party feel generated by typically what seems like only around 40 people in the venue.
