Spearheading the forever-touted gentrification of Wedding, this imposing turn-of-the-century bath-house was rebuilt in the late 1950s after WWII but fell into disuse until its eventual transformation into a cultural centre. Like many of Berlin’s ex-industrial buildings that are earmarked for arty purposes, it is primarily used as a club, and with all its original fittings intact is a particularly impressive place to party. You enter through various underground tunnels, giant waterworks pipes running throughout, and emerge out onto the empty Olympic-sized swimming pool. The DJ is literally in at the deep end and the pool floor serves as dancefloor. Parties pack out here with acts from the more indie side of the electronic spectrum, like Kyle Hall and Optimo, as well as doubling up as an urban art gallery during the day. This is the location for the Berlin chapter of the massively popular Boiler Room DJ livestream events, here monthly, and appropriately filmed in – you guessed it – the old boiler room.
