Exactly like the infamous KitKatClub, Berghain is best-known for its decadent, bacchanalian, sexually uninhibited parties which often continue into the following afternoon. It is also infamous for the strict and choosy bouncers at the door who make quick work of the improperly dressed, the faint of heart, or the curious youth from the suburbs. Security is tight and cameras are strictly forbidden. This allows the homo-, hetero-, and bi-sexual guests to throw social restraints to the wind and live out their most pornographic fantasies.

History

Berghain is the reincarnation of the legendary Berlin techno club Ostgut, which was the first permanently established venue explicitly for gay fetish and sex parties. "Ostgut" itself grew out of the so-called "Snaxx" parties and developed into a focal point of the Berlin techno-subculture. Ostgut closed down on January 6, 2003 following a 30-hour farewell event, and the former railway warehouse which housed it was subsequently demolished. January 6 is the 6th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


The organizers opened the new club Berghain in a much larger building in November 2004. 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Music

The music is mostly techno and minimal techno. The Panorama Bar hosts well-known House and Electro-DJs. This article or section may contain original research or unverified claims. ...


Clientele

Just like the former Ostgut, Berghain is a mixture of everything from actors, stranded tourists, college students, artists, and just about everything else of all sexual persuasions. The average age is 25 or older.
