Hundreds of ravers gathered in Berlin on Wednesday to protest against the closing of much-loved club Griessmuehle.

The club, which opened in 2011 and was formerly a pasta factory, is under threat from developers as its current rental contract ends on 31st January. 

As reported by Resident Advisor, hundreds of people gathered in Neukölln, Berlin, to protest the club closing.

The report adds that an announcement was made by Griessmuehle founder David Ciura, who said the club will remain open one extra weekend for the finale of the party Cocktail d'Amore. It is now scheduled for Saturday 1st February. 

The protest came after the club shared a cryptic post at the end of 2019 suggesting that it could be forced to close. 

The team have since launched a campaign dubbed Save Our Spaces and their website reads "Berlin, don't break our hearts. Sign our petition now". 

Griessmuehle hosts a number of Berlin's key parties including Mother's Finest, Cocktail d'Amore and, until recently, REEF. 

The team behind the club opened up a record shop called Latitude close to the venue early last year.

So far more than 44,000 people have signed the petition to help save Griessmuehle. You can get involved by clicking here
