Although not that old, this venue is about as perfect an example of Berlin’s utilitarian club aesthetic as you’re likely to find. Impossible to even hazard a guess at its previous use, the building has had very little done to it – other than ubiquitous graffiti – but like much in Berlin, the rough and rugged exterior proves quite opposite to its friendly atmosphere. Set in a large property behind Ostkreuz station, it has expansive grounds for open-air partying, featuring a chill-out caravan and wooded area with hidden clearings to get lost in. Inside, there are two smallish dance floors, the usual worn leather sofas (passed out raver optional), and a punchy sound system. The music policy is varied, but niche, with hard techno and deep house favoured. It plays home to the cult gay party Homopatik where local hero Mr. Ties has made a name for himself and his epic party sets.
