Kleiner Donner – Hip hop basement

Okay, I won’t tell you any lies. This is not a big club. It is a micro club. When I was a kid, my parents had a bigger basement than the ‘Kleiner Donner’. But this one is much warmer and surely a lot more fun. 

Kleiner Donner is in the basement of the Haus 73, right next to the Rote Flora and the Ganja strip. You walk down the stairs and you have half a foot on the dancing floor. A lot of wood on the walls, a well-illuminated (and well-maintained) Bar and a DJ booth. That’s it. That is your club. Micro.

But if you like Hip-Hop, Dancehall or similar beats and you like to shake your booty, THIS is the place. The atmosphere is intense and the mood is friendly. You can not NOT dance in this spot. The beats, the ‘small thunders’ set in and you are lost. With all the others on the dancefloor or shall I say: stage?

This video pretty much sums up the atmosphere. If there is no gig, they usually open their doors at midnight (Fri & Sat). Check their events page for artists and special opening times.

UPDATE: Until the end of the year (2017), the KLEINER DONNER is in an EXILE Location (PAL, Karolinenstraße 45) for the regular Friday Parties. They will soon return to the old location or a even better new one. We will keep you posted.
