The buzzing energy and central location of Alexanderplatz draws thousands of tourists to stay here when exploring Berlin. Housing some of the city’s top sights, this bustling city centre is also home to some of Berlin’s chicest nightclubs. Here are the best nightclubs in and near Alexanderplatz.
House of Weekend takes over the 12th & 15th floors and rooftop terrace of the Haus Des Reisens building in Alexanderplatz. In summer this club’s rooftop terrace is unrivalled, with private cabanas, cocktail specials, 360-degree city views and all just a stone’s throw from the Berlin’s iconic TV tower. Well after the sun has set, around 11PM, the 15th floor opens with DJs spinning familiar electro and the occasional hip-hop or dubstep night. The club has six private lounges behind the DJ booth with table service, this along with the sophistication of the rooftop terrace give clubbers a taste of something in Berlin’s often underground scene.

Sandwiched in between the train stations Alexanderplatz and Jannowitzbrücker, hidden beneath railway arches is one of Berlin’s edgiest clubs. Golden Gate is known for its exceptionally long opening hours, minimal underground energy, and thumping techno music. With one dancefloor, a summer-garden area, and an upstairs bathroom, this compact club is the no-thrills favourite for locals and tourists alike.

KitKat is the infamous fetish and techno club located just a stone’s throw from Alexanderplatz. Opened by Australian pornographic filmmaker Simon Thaur and his partner Kirsten Krüger, this liberating club hosts a range of (mostly) naked club nights in Berlin. The music selection is mostly techno, and they often host a range of queer-friendly club nights. The club’s motto is “do what you want but stay in communication,” reflecting its open, sexually driven, but respectful persona.
