Best Area to Stay in Berlin for Nightlife

Berlin is a big city, that is why there are a few areas for amazing nightlife experience. We would highlight two areas: Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. Kreuzberg is considered a city of it’s own rights in terms of partying and nightlife. If you are up to clubbing, it has a few good nightclubs and lots of bars. Schlesisches Tor and Kottbusser Tor are the best streets of the area to have fun at night. Friedrichshain is perfect for techno kids. You will find lots of pubs, bars and clubs there. By the way these areas have some good LGBT-oriented bars.

Nightlife in Berlin

Techno music was invented in Berlin, and some of the best techno clubs of the world, like Berghain and Watergate, are in Berlin. There is no specific party area in Berlin, and all kind of electronica clubs are scattered around de city, but public transport works quite good and work 24 hours during the weekend. During the week, there is special night services by bus covering all mayor routes. Another curious thing about clubs in Berlin is that some of them stay open through the weekend, offering non-stop parties from Friday night until early hours of Monday morning.

Best Party Areas in Berlin

As we already mentioned, there is no clear party area or neighbourhood in Berlin, especially if you are looking for clubs. However, areas like Simon-Dach-Strasse, Kastanienallee or Kottbusser Tor offer a good selection of bars with unique designs and a really cool vibe.


All the area around Simon-Dach-Strasse, Boxhagener platz and Warschahuer Strasse is very lively and vibrant. Very close to the East Side Gallery and part of East Germany, it’s a very multicultural area, with a wide culinary offer and different pubs and clubs with different music styles. The area can give the impression of being very trash or even dangerous, but don’t worry, it’s just part of its charm. Clubs like Matrixx and Watergate are fairly close, and the area at the other side of the river is also a good place to explore.


The street of Kasteanienalle, in the neighbourhood of Prenzlauer Berg, is a little bit less trashy. The avenue, as well as neighbouring streets, is full of restaurants, cafes and bars. As in the rest of Berlin, their decoration is quite unique, and even though they tend to be a bit quieter than in Kreuzberg, some of them can get wild. We recommend have a look at Prater Garten in summer and Dr. Pong. Here you can find clubs offering top-chart music or at least a bit more commercial than electronica.

Kottbusser Tor

Considered the heart of Kreuzberg, Kottbusser Tor and its surroundings is a vibrant are full of bars and pubs. Oranienstrasse is constantly packed with people bar hopping or eating some delicious street food. Former anarchist centre of West Berlin, this area is where David Bowie spent most of his time during his time living in Berlin. Places like SO 36 are an institution and have seen some very big names performing in their stage.

Most Famous Clubs in Berlin

We already mentioned that some of the most famous nightclubs of the world are in Berlin, but there are quite a few other clubs worth visiting. Actually, Berghain and Watergate might be overcrowded and difficult to get into. So, in case you want to check out other cool clubs, here is a list of the most famous clubs among Berliners:

Dress codes & age restrictions

While bars and pubs don’t have any dress code and are extremely tolerant in regards of appearances, clubs in Berlin are famous for having huge queues and doormen refusing entry to without any obvious reasons. Said so, there are some rules of thumb you can follow in order to maximise your chances of getting in:

As always, asking the staff at the hostel about the specific club you want to go is the best way of maximising your chances of getting in. They will probably know the best way to dress, what time to go and what gigs are happening that night.
