About Berlin Nightlife
The Berlin nightscape of the 1920s and 30s was legendary for its progressive perhaps even subversive attitude. Fortunately for todays travelers, years of Nazi occupation and Cold War division did little to dull the citys taste for round-the-clock revelry. Indeed, bars and clubs are generally open until the wee hours of the morning, and youll find plenty of choices to suit any palate. If its a cool, sleek, Euro-style bar you seek, the Mitte scene caters to both a conservative and sophisticated clientele, thanks to posh institutions like Lola and Newton. While boasting a handful of hotspots like Tiergartens Bar Am Lützowplatz, the western downtown area is also a haven for jazz aficionados, thanks to Charlottenburgs swanky A-Trane. The southern districts of Schöneberg and Kreutzeberg, meanwhile, have done their part to solidify Berlins reputation as Europes gay and lesbian trendsetter, offering everything from ultra-chic dance clubs like 90° and Havanna to themed places that challenge patrons to be, shall we say, more adventurous during their twilight forays.
