While the techno scene for which Berlin’s known is still going strong, a new generation of DJs and club kids have proven a disruptive force in recent years – and the city’s nightlife’s gone all the wilder for it. Some follow in the paths of Berghain, a local legend with a sex-friendly ethos and all-weekend lineup; others bring the heat with tropical flavours and poppy selectors.
All the same, as our selection of the best Berlin club nights shows, there’s never been a better time to enjoy nightlife in Berlin: LGBT-friendliness is a given, as are vibes so good you’ll never want to leave. Parties start around midnight and spill into the next day, but maintain a relatively relaxed attitude when it comes to dress codes – so feel free to pop on a pair of trainers that will last you from sunset to sunrise. Whether it’s hip hop, pop, R&B or, yes, techno, the Berlin scene’s never been better for a night on the town.
