A pioneering hub of creativity, Stattbad Berlin (formerly Stattbad Wedding) occupies a public swimming pool from 1907. Since the water was drained in 2001, the space has been reincarnated as a beehive for artists, musicians, designers and creative start-ups. New art exhibits open regularly but on weekends raucous parties draw the dance-obsessed from around town into the blue-and-white-tiled pool and various other nooks and crannies. Stattbad may not book the big-name DJs, but that just keeps prices low and the crowd relaxed. Foodies on a budget should check the website for the next date when the 'Lost in Wedding' crew prepares delicious three-course vegetarian menus for a mere 10 euros in Stattbad's cafe-bar.
- Dance Clubs: "Stattbad also hosts the Berlin edition of the London-based 'Boiler Room' parties that see prominent DJs like Sven Vaeth, DJ T and Jimmy Edgar play live sets in, yes, the pool's old boiler room. Entry is by guest list only but it's all beamed out via the internet at www.boilerroom.tv/live."
- Best for Dance Clubs Because: This is a unique, alternative-flavored spot where you can dance inside a swimming pool.
