Lido in Krauzberg and Bar 24 just up from there are both really, 24 only really cause it's open late and you can buy whatever you want from there. Tell them it's your birthday and your whole night will be free.

This is the hardcore/Melbourne shuffle, it has nothing to do with Berlin other than that video being filmed there and some German people liking terrible music

Im off to Berlin with my uni next week for Bread & Butter, I don't know if I'll really try any of the clubs, probably just pubs, is beer really cheap in germany or is that just a very common misconception?

Berlin is a cheap city, mainly because there are shitloads of unemployed and the city itself is a state with massive debts

Yer, id read about the mass unemployment. Well we've been told to bring as much money as you think you'd need for 3 days in London, would that be a little over the top then in your opinion?

Not over the top. 1 euro is a pound now for tourists, and it's only ever so slightly cheaper than the UK.

I'd agree with weekend, watergate and havanna.

On the berghain, if your dressed like someone from England then chances are you won't get in. If you speak english to the door man you won't get in. If you do go then try Sunday morning / all day and guaranteed you will never have an experience like it. Panorama bar on a sunday is without any argument the best club in the world. Anyone who says otherwise hasn't been there.

Other places to check are Cookies and also Tape. I know alot of the places you mention and they are not great.

If you want a cool but cheap place to stay near all the good spots:

Almost all those clubs I mentioned play different music each night they are open. I never went anywhere that played house, electro, minimal or techno, if I could help it. Was more into drum and bass, ska, indie alternative, rock, jazz, reggae and balkan beats. Forgot to mention Lovelite which always has good gigs on, and Kaffee Burger if you can stand cheese and just want to pull.

I miss Berlin Sad

Going to berlin and not listening to house is like going to the beach and not going for a swim Smiling
Techno in Germany is like rock/indie in the UK, its ingrained in the whole place.
