The Mitte district is a hip and happening spot and boasts some
of Berlin''s top clubs and bars, but it can be quite touristy. New
clubs are springing up in Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain, while
Kreuzberg is fast becoming a popular hangout with locals and
immigrants alike and is distinguished by its edgy atmosphere.
Schoneburg offers some superb cafes, clubs and saunas and is quite
popular with Berlin''s gay community, as is Nollendorfplatz and its

which is the equivalent of a Briton''s local pub,
where the local brews and old favourites can be sampled. Cabaret is
a popular pastime in Berlin and there are many cabaret clubs dotted
around this vibrant city offering satirical shows that make fun of
the political and social scene.
Live music clubs dominate a lot of the city where well-known and
amateur acts are showcased in just about every type of atmosphere,
from small and intimate clubs to downright dirty and grungy music
halls. Or for a quieter option take a night stroll around the city
and enjoy the romance of Savignyplatz in Charlottenburg, stopping
in at one of the local pubs for a glass of wine.
Public transport is cheap and easily accessible making a night
out on the town a pleasure to navigate. With all this and so much
more on offer, visitors in Berlin will have a tough time narrowing
down how and where to spend their evenings.
