Admiralbrücke (Kreuzberg)

Soft guitar sounds from young musicians, students with rolling cigarettes andSterni in hand, a beautiful sunset and the slight smell of grass - in warmer temperatures the Admiralbrücke offers the perfect ambience for a few philosophical hours on the Landwehr Canal. And that in the heart of the hippest district (yes, Neukölln, we can argue about that) of the city.

Many small second hand shops and the weekly market put the hipster crown on the neighborhood.

Sisyphus (Lichtenberg)

The Sisyphos is special because, unlike many other clubs, it is not located in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, but away from the U-Bahn and S-Bahn in Rummelsburg. In non-Corona times it was like this: If you take the trip to the techno temple, it may well be that you will be turned away by the picky bouncers after a long queue. But who wants to go to a club that everyone can go to? Exactly, nobody. Now, during Corona times, you have to look around the website to see what the team is currently thinking of cool ...

The Barber Yard (Neukölln)

A well-groomed beard is essential for all male hipsters. And where do you get hold of that if not at Kücük Istanbul? A visit here is very exclusive: the barber shop has its own care range, five different types of shave are offered and there are just four places. If you have to wait, relax on one of the club armchairs and enjoy the sounds of the vinyl record. In the meantime the shop has turned intoThe Barber Yardrenamed but is still in the same location.

Holzmarkt and Kater Blau (Friedrichshain)

TheWood market is basically a big hipster get-together on the Spree and of course no longer an insider tip for the "normal" hipster. Still, watching the boats go by on self-made seating on the water is just cool. With delicious street food, beer and wine, dangling your soul is twice as much fun. The Christmas market is particularly beautiful. If you drop by here on the weekend, you can go to the next doorBlue cat to celebrate. The club is an institution in Berlin and offers the best DJs in the city and in the world behind the turntables. Even if you have to wait an hour or two at the somewhat stricter door, the colorful audience, the good vibes and the music are definitely worth the queue.

Madame Claude (Kreuzberg)

Of course, you can really shoot yourself in this bar, but you should bear in mind that the furniture is also hanging from the ceiling here. If everything turns around then, don't say you weren't warned by us! TheMadame Claude Barbut has even more to offer than ceiling chairs: cool gigs and dance opportunities in the basement, a hip, francophile audience and good and cheap beer make this bar a little gem in the Wrangelkiez.
