Poll 2024: Berghain

Location: Berlin, Germany   

Capacity: 1,500

There’s more to Berghain than its eponymous main room. The club encompasses many different spaces: Panorama Bar, Kantine am Berghain, Halle, Lab.oratory, and Saüle. During the summer, the Garten provides a dusty, sun-drenched spot, brought to life by house DJs playing in the outdoor DJ booth. Inside, the industrial-style Berghain room has seen a range of talents play its fabled Funktion-One sound system, from Freddy K to Tasha to DJ Rolando. Upstairs, in Panorama Bar, brighter textures dominate the high-ceilinged space, with Avalon Emerson, Batu, Gabrielle Kwarteng and many more keeping the party going till Monday morning.  

Over the last 12 months, Berghain and Panorama Bar have hosted several label showcases and collectives. Darwin’s bass-fuelled REEF rumbled both floors, Sedef Adasï brought her HAMAM Nights to Panorama Bar, Marie Montexier curated a PARYìA showcase, and Lolsnake took their party weeeirdos to Berghain. Long-running events like Finest Thursday, Finest Friday, Snax, and the annual Silvester Klubnacht marathon on New Year’s Eve remain regular fixtures in the club’s calendar. Remaining one of a now growing number of venues to operate a strict no-camera policy, this former power plant offers a phone-free dancefloor where punters — and DJs — can soak up the full Berghain experience without digital distractions.
