A popular hangout for ex-pats – due in part to the motley crew of rockabilly American staff – White Trash started life as a one-room restaurant on Torstraße in the Mitte district. Owners Wally and Wolfgang have since transplanted the burger-bar-cum-truckers-stop concept into a spacious former Chinese restaurant on Schönhauser Allee, retaining the original kitsch Orientalist decor. It’s open nightly for gorging on hefty burgers and slugging pitchers of beer into the wee hours, but things really kick off at the weekend when there’s live music in the restaurant, strippers dancing in the windows and parties in the basement. Downstairs the Diamond Lounge is a cave-like party space with a large dance floor and bar. A highlight is the recently revived Death by Pop party, a big draw on Friday nights. Expect indie, rock and electronic tunes and look out for guest DJs (ex-members of the Libertines and the Smiths have been known to drop in).
