This little big spot is a welcome surprise to the so-called techno strip around the Warschauer strasse area. After years of building up a reputation as an almost only clubbing area, Neue Heimat has come in to save the day and take advantage of one of Berlin’s last outdoor playgrounds. It mixes food, drinks, market and music on a grey winter day or a sunny summer afternoon.
It’s located at the RAW temple, which used to be a train repair plant back in the day. Throughout the years it has become home to Astra, Cassiopeia club, a skate hall among other things, and on Sundays, a good-find flea market. Neue Heimat came in to put the icing on the cake, the chocolate swirl on top.
It’s a weekend spot and almost every week there is something new happening: Bar food and Jazz on Fridays, Street market on Sundays and so on. It’s the new venture of the Bar 25 people, who are known to turn run-down areas into colorful playgrounds. This time with a bit of a sweet tooth and an adventurous palate.
See their website for weekly updates and special events, which are constant. No matter what event you choose I promise it’ll be a lovely time. Just don’t leave it too long before you go. There’s always a time limit on these pop-up Berliner paradises.
