Immerse yourself in the nostalgic ambiance of Suss War Gestern, a Berlin dance bar where 1970s aesthetics mingle with the present.
Fittingly translating to “yesterday was sweet,” the nightlife venue is located in the dynamic Friedrichshain. Despite being quite far from Berlin’s center, the eastern neighborhood has a reputation for having a lot of foot traffic – its punky vibe, techno clubs, and Soviet-era buildings might be at fault for that.
As for Suss War Gestern club, you can find it nestled in a multi-story green building. The entrance is hard to miss, as it is branded with the club’s logo – a bunny holding a machine gun.
Not many Berlin clubs are reminiscent of the world-ord charm, but Suss War Gestern is. Within its bricked walls, a mix of retro wallpapers and vintage furniture make patrons feel like they’re dancing in a Prohibition-era speakeasy.
Despite its compact size, Suss War Gestern strikes a unique chord with its versatile layout. Its three separate realms – the bustling dance floor, the mellow lounge, and the atmospheric bar area – resonate with various musical genres.
On the ground floor, a more relaxed tempo sets the mood. Here, amidst the hum of house and electro music, you’ll find the bar and cozy corners perfect for conversations that last into the wee hours.
While most of the dance bar’s events are focused on electronic-fueled sets delivered by local artists, revelers are spoilt for choice with hip-hop sounds.
This multifaceted musical experience attracts a diverse crowd, where locals and tourists blend seamlessly.
After partying at Suss War Gestern, you’ll find yourself leaving with more than just memories – you’ll carry Berlin’s spirit.
