In Berlin, anything and everything has been converted into a bar - most with no signage - so it's hard to know where to venture on your night out. You can always follow the sound of minimal techno pounding through some obscure door, but if repetitious beats aren't your thing, we suggest Bassy Club.
You'll find it hidden away on Schönhauser Allee, in Prenzlauer Berg, just a few metres from the notorious 8mm Bar - Anton Newcombe from the Brian Jonestown Massacre's local drink den. But if you're less about the star-gazing and more about the music, then keep on heading towards the gritty old saloon bar that awaits you at number 176.
Most nights of the week there's a live show; whether it be burlesque dancers on a Wednesday, or a psych, garage, or rockabilly band on a Saturday. Last weekend, Baby Woodrose's moody psychedelic rock, combined with Bassy's dated decor transported you straight back to the '60s: a good place to be. After the live shows, it's vinyl all night, but with one rule: it can't be played if it was made after 1969.More...
