    Komische Oper: Opera

    by FridgeMagnet Updated Feb 7, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm not usually a big opera buff but I wanted to see the opera houses. Komische oper is very beautful inside but looks like a 1970's building outside. I was glad I went. I saw Don Giovanni but a modern interpretation of it.

    Komische means "comic"

    Dress Code: Some people were very well dressed but I was in a shirt and pants and I don't think I was out of place

    On the corner of Schlesische Strasse and Cuvry Strasse you find the music venue Lido. I recommend investigating what is playing here when you are in town. You might be lucky to experiencing the up and coming new star in an intimate location.

    Dress Code: Ready to party!

    Brauhaus Spandau: BEER...!

    by Ritchie_Lionheart Updated Jun 29, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great fun, beer, food and music, bet it for brunch, lunch or a night of fun.

    Dress Code: Spandau itself is a great district, easy to reach by U-Bahn, train, bus, tram or...boat. In fact, Spandau is surrounded by lakes and rivers, famous is its town hall and the setting is really picturesque.

    Joseph Roth Diele: Very much Berlin

    by nepalgoods Written Jun 18, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Joseph Roth has been a writer of essays, novels poems. He lived from 1894 to 1939. He left Germany 1933. His works show an exceptionel sharp skill of watching people and the world. In a way he was a tragical figure, having alcohol problems and missing his home in Germany, dying early.

    The bar and restaurant "Joseph Roth Diele" is full of pics and books commemorating Roth. They serve typical German an dBerlin food and nice beer. Sometimes there is life music. It is an ideal place to hang aorund after an exhausting working day.

    Rum Trader: Remember to remove your hat if ladies are about!

    by steedappeal Written May 10, 2009

    Don't let the 1970's exterior fool you- you are entering Weimar era Berlin at the 'Rum Trader': one man's world of civilized cocktails, conversation and stiffened conviviality. The imperious major domo greets you, makes and serves you impeccable made cocktails (just tell him sweet or sour- no need to name the drink) and enforces the rule that gentlemen take their hats off in the presence of ladies! There is only one table so go early or be prepared to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the somewhat glitterati in this microscopic bar.

    Dress Code: Upscale. The most dressy bar I saw in Berlin.

    Wurgeengel: the Exterminating Angel

    by EviP Written May 8, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    named after Louis Bunuel’s film, where wealthy people are invited at a dinner party in a villa. The guests eventually find themselves mysteriously unable to leave the room. An inexplicable force subjects them to their lower instincts...

    the bar sign hangs from the fourth floor. Its red-plush furnishings and glass ceiling in 1950’s style is surprisingly true to the period. great music, too...

    open from 19.00

    This is a great little club that specialises in indie music. It was pretty cheap to get in to and the drink prices were reasonable. I'm not sure what time this place closes. I went twice and the the second time the sun had come up before the club had closed.

    Yellow Lounge: Classical Music Played at Nightclubs

    by Turtleshell Updated Aug 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Live acts and/or DJs play classical music at various nightclubs. This the main idea of Yellow Lounge.
    Yellow Lounge is also a selection of recordings distributed by a major classical label.

    One could wonder if playing classic music at clubs really "works" or if DJs are really keen on playing Fauré or Beethoven. But, yes, it does work.

    So far, among a lot of other artists, you could see French master pianist Helene Grimaud soloing, or Claudio Abbado's Mahler Chamber Orchestra - live at small nightclubs, and all at a bargain for 5 Euro.
    Mike Oldfield introduced his new classical piece (albeit it wasn't played live), and Rufus Wainwright recorded a compilation album for Yellow Lounge.
    Various DJs, usually more familiar with electronic music, were happy to contribute.

    Since dates and locations are changing, you need to check Yellow Lounge's website for upcoming events.

    Kulturbrauerei, the former Schultheiss brewery, today accommodates a couple of clubs - some for dancing, some for live music.
    In the close proximity there are numerous bars and restaurants.

    On top of that, Kulturbrauerei offers a nice flair on warm summer nights.

    The clubs:

    Frannz Club:
    The legendary Frannz was probably the best club in East Berlin if not the entire GDR.
    Pop, Rock, Funk ...
    http://www.frannz.de/

    nbi - Neue Berliner Initiative:
    A cosy 2-story club with a beer-garden.
    Mixed program, mixed (young) audience.
    http://www.neueberlinerinitiative.de/

    Alte Kantine
    Pop, Rock, Dance, readings
    Really a nice location with a somewhat mediterranean atmosphere.
    http://www.alte-kantine.de/

    Kesselhaus
    A big black hall for readings, theater and music.
    http://www.kesselhaus-berlin.de/

    Maschinenhaus
    The smaller, brighter issue of Kesselhaus.
    http://www.kesselhaus-berlin.de/ (yes, same URL)

    Soda Club
    Mostly R'n'B, Soul, Top 20 or 50
    Young audience
    http://www.soda-berlin.de/

    Club 23
    Mostly Dance and House, 80style.
    The smaller sibling of Soda Club, hence the same URL:

    Various: Oranienburger Strasse

    by deeper_blue Written Jul 6, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the main centres for nightlife in Berlin, there are numerous outdoor restaurants in the summer and lots of bars lining the street, including Silberfisch, Ambulance Barr and Lounge 808.
    It stretches for a mile between Friederich Strasse and Hackesche Markt, just north of the Spree.
    You'll know you're there when you see the New Synagogue looking down on you.
    Be aware after dark there are likely to be sex workers hanging around.

    Panorama Bar / Berghain: Dancing 24hrs

    by krissu30 Written Jun 2, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A huge old warehouse with different dancefloors: hard-core techno downstairs, upstairs a bit more civilized :). It's always full. Don't be surprised to find a long line 4 am in the morning- nothing extraordinary. People go there after parties in other places.
    It's hard to describe it with words, it's the best to see it with your own eyes. It's definately worth a visit.

    Dress Code: There's a strict door control. What are their criterions- I haven't understand that one yet. There's also a very strict 'security' control. So what ever you had hidden in your purse- they'll find it. No photos allowed.
