View of Berlin

Here's the list of the best clubs in Friedrichshain, Berlin that you should definitely check out.

Berghain

Best nightclub in Friedrichshain, Berlin!
Berghain

New York has swag, Rome has history, and Berlin has legendary nightlife. And perhaps no club in Berlin (or the world, for that matter) is more hallowed than Berghain. Set in a former East German power station, this cavernous, nondescript warehouse is the Holy Grail for techno fans, hosting three-day-long debauchery-induced raves. Every weekend, the club attracts some of the best DJs from all over the planet to spin and pump beats so intense that they ring in your bones instead of your ears. These days, the club’s notoriously hard door policy is as famous as the club itself. But if you don’t make it past the 1,000-foot cue, don’t fret: Berghain is just one of more than 200 clubs in Berlin. And from techno temples to mellow canal-side haunts, there's something here for everyone.

Yaam

Yaam

YAAM—short for Young African Arts Market—is a sprawling Spree-side beach club that makes for an oasis in a grittily post-industrial section of Berlin. After passing through the gate, you'll see the complex unfold along street art-bedecked partitions to reveal a concert hall, as well as a sandy beach area (complete with loungers), African and Caribbean food stands, and a basketball court. This delightfully eclectic club is one of Berlin's quirkiest spots to dance all night, chill on a sunny afternoon, or pop in for a special event.

Salon Zur Wilden Renate

Salon Zur Wilden Renate

On its famous theme nights, don’t be surprised to see trippy and individually decorated rooms, dance floors blaring everything from electro to disco and everything in between—and maybe even an indoor treehouse. There’s also an outdoor courtyard area, if you can find it, with its own bar that makes for a great space to catch your breath before diving back into the madness—or crashing on the benches and divans peppered throughout the rooms.
