Robbie Williams wants to open a club “a bit like Berghain” in Berlin

The British pop star has plans to open a gallery and club space in the German capital 

Robbie Williams, has revealed his vision to open a multifunctional nightclub and art gallery in Berlin, Der Spiegel reports

The 46-year-old, who rose to fame in the '90s as part of British boy band, Take That, told the German Press Agency: “I’m going to start a band and be a DJ and want to rent space in Berlin, a gallery with my art, and in the evening it will be a club – a bit like Berghain.”

According to the Blid newspaper, in an Instagram live video, Williams further explained his vision as, “a musical place, something that the old people will call a rave.”  

He announced that he will team up with the Australian songwriters and producers Flynn Francis and Tim Metcalfe for his "project out of passion", which is yet to be named. 

Williams explained that the coronavirus crisis has delayed the project, and that he could also see the idea working in Tokyo.  

The iconic Berlin club, Berghain, re-opened as an art gallery in September, with the club staff re-trained as tour guides.
