Salon zur Wilden Renate (address and info)
This “wild” club with multiple dance floors is a labyrinth of spaces with kitschy circus-like decoration. In the Summer they host open-air parties with the most varying kinds of music. Located near Berghain, Salon zur Wilden Renate has a similar endless energy. Parties go on until mornings and, on weekends, turn into all-day clubbing experiences. Unlike Berghain, Wilden Renate is relatively easy to get in, particularly if you speak German and don’t arrive as a large group.
Cookies (address and info)
Cookies is more of an upscale clubbing option. It offers the best underground house and disco in its central space, but often spices things up with some hip-hop and indie in its second room. Despite being located Uptown amongst Mitte’s posh restaurants and hotels, the staff at Cookies is extremely friendly and relaxed. Those familiar with the place will book a table at its adjoining restaurant upstairs, and continue partying in the club until sunrise.
