Just count the number of UK and US producers living in Berlin to get a sense of its lure for those with a taste for nocturnal manoeuvres. Having been serving the city for almost six years from its spot in Kreuzberg, Watergate is a self-professed favourite of house heads like DJ T and Heidi, while 2DIY4, Rebel Rave and Circo Loco are just some of the big guns keeping the house and techno rolling over 2012. But it's not just the music that keeps the crowds lining up every week; situated on the River Spree, the club gives an unparalleled view of the sun rising, while the main room is famous for its LED ceiling, dazzling dancers before they party late into the day on the lower Water Floor. Throw in a series of mix CDs, which have represented the likes of Ellen Allien and Sebo K, and you have yourself a club that's both world-famous and strictly underground.
