Just moved to Neukölln? Or looking to explore it some more? Here’s our list of the best bars in the neighbourhood.Some of Neukölln’s hidden gems for psych rock bands to djs:
Loophole – Located in a former brothel, Loophole is an alternative space where you can find art, live music, club nights and more! They tend to focus on band music, psych, indie, nu wave and more.
Mama Bar -A great bar with cheap drinks and damn good music, they often play afro funk, soul, bossa nova and tonnes of latin american and Spanish music. Always packed full of PYTs.
Sameheads – Is one our favourite bars, it has great events (including aussie heath-throb Andras Fox) often has markets and some of the hippiest decor in Berlin. Pop art , vintage clothes , events and more..
Keller – Is literally that a basement near Rathaus Neukolln, it’s a cool open mic, poetry bar and venue. Very hip multinational crowds, expats, berliners and more..
Twin Pigs – Is a less bohemian and more upmarket than your standard Neukölln bar, they serve legit bar bites, tonnes of decent beers and often have vinyl only dj sets (largely disco, funk, jazz and house)..
Goldammer – Is one of Neukölln’s most friendly neighbourhood bars, they have an all you can chow Thursday night vegetarian meal, dancing classes and some of the best prices for drinks in the city.
Villa Neukölln – Hipster stalwart near Boddinstr, cosy couch hangs and a theatre in the back, right next to The Club ( which has the famous real housewives of Neukölln drag show, absolute must do on a Friday).
Schwuz – Open since 1977 and historically a queer space, SchuwZ is not only a great club but one especially relevant to the culture and movements of Berlin. I’ve seen some of the best dancing of my life go down here and some of the most comfortable and contented crowds.
Damen Salon – Damensalon is a hip local bar in the Reuter Kiez, lots of berlin friendlys. Great dance floor that goes off on weekends.
