Nightlife in Berlin

Few cities can rival Berlin for nightlife: whether it's to be 1920s cabaret at the glitzy Friedrichstadtpalast, live jazz at Quasimodo in Charlottenburg or all-night clubbing to techno at industrial-style Berghain in Friedrichshain. Kreuzberg appeals to a young crowd with laid-back beer gardens, retro lounges, and basement cocktail bars like Bar Nou. Bars often open until 2am, clubs 5am.
