Location: Berlin, Germany
Celebrating 15 years in the game last year, and with well over a decade of impressive line-ups, Watergate remains one of the most popular destinations to party in Europe. In 2008 the owners launched Watergate Records, an outlet for residents and friends of the club that now receives worldwide acclaim. The label has just released its 46th release, and over the years has invited the likes of Kerri Chandler, Tiefschwarz, Ellen Allien, Pan-Pot, and Culoe De Song to contribute to its highly regarded compilation series.
Set across two floors, the club’s upper level comes equipped with a unique LED light system across the entire ceiling and the water floor is most famous for its beautiful views across the Spree; at its best when night turns to day in the early hours of the morning. Notable parties include Anja Schneider’s old Mobilee sessions, Cinthie Invites with guests including Glenn Underground, and regular in-house nights with residents like Marco Resmann, Matthias Meyer and La Fleur, who have all achieved global recognition over the years. Watergate has also taken to the road achieving global success, with label showcases at Snowbombing in Austria, to Off-Sonar in Barcelona. From its respect in Berlin and beyond, the legend of Watergate lives on.
