Clärchens Ballhaus


Clärchens, a combination bar, restaurant, and dance hall has been around for more than a century and is still going strong in Mitte. Many come for the cheap (and a lot of the time, free) dance classes that rage in style from salsa to swing, but they always end up staying for a live set of traditional Russian music in the Gipsy Restaurant or take a break for a wood-fired pizza, sandwich, or German dish like fried perch or meatballs from their kitchen.
