Location: Berlin, Germany
Tresor is one of Berlin’s oldest clubbing institutions, first opening its doors in 1991 — the owners having a foothold in the scene since 1988 back when they ran UFO club. In 2007 Tresor found its permanent home at the reconstructed power station in Mitte, famed for its underground vaults and iron caged DJ booth. Tresor’s label was launched in the ‘90s, gaining worldwide respect in the techno history books with releases from Detroit legends such as Jeff Mills, Juan Atkins, Blake Baxter and Robert Hood.
The club is open five nights and days a week, allowing an expansive music program. Amongst the regular shindigs include the Grounded Theory label party co-founded by Henning Baer, the in-house ‘Tresor Invites’ series that hosts international headliners like Surgeon and Dave Clarke, and one of Berlin’s most prolific free-spirited gay parties Herrensauna. Tresor’s ‘New Faces’ is an opportunity to support local talent, with live acts and DJs performing every Wednesday. The label is now deep into its 301st release, with high-tempo techno from experimental duo Second Woman. With a powerhouse of artists at its disposal, we are certain that Tresor will continue its legacy for many years to come.
