going out > Riva BaR Shut off from the outside world by thick velvet curtains, Riva is a chic cocktail bar in one of Berlin's most popular nightlife districts. Named after Luigi Riva, a '70s Italian soccer star whose picture hangs behind the bar, this popular establishment can get very busy at weekends. The barmen will happily mix you whatever concoction you fancy. All drinks are half price during happy hour. Riva has a glowing bar in the centre of the railway viaduct arch that it is housed in. DJ Fritz spins on weekend nights, and the range of over 150 cocktails is available. In summer, the terrace offers great views of the landmark TV tower. Dircksenstraße Bogen 142 10178 Berlin Tel: +49 30 2472 2688 Metro : S-Hackescher Markt/U- Alexanderplatz > 40 seconds Clubbing in heaven. It takes exactly 40 seconds for the elevator to go to the 8th floor, where the club is located and hence the name. This beautiful roof top club gives a breathtaking view of Potsdamer Platz. Experience a great party night in Berlin’s world of rooftop dining and dancing. Right next to Potsdamer Platz, you can find Berlin’s most famous elevator to go up to club level on the eighth floor. The club is walled with windows that give a panoramic view of Berlin. This view gets even better at night, when the lights of the club mix with the lights of the city. Most fashionable Berliners come here to start their night with a drink and to enjoy the view over Berlin from the dance floors and the 3 rooftop terraces. The interior decor is modern lounge style with white leather sofas everywhere. Going to the club at the weekend is a must for an opportunity to observe Berliners as they party all night long. Potsdamerstr. 58 10785 Berlin Tel: +49 30 890 642 41 Metro: U-Potsdamer Platz > BeRlineR unTeRwelTen “Myth Germania” Shadows and traces of the Imperial Capital. Berliner Unterwelten is a unique opportunity to see places the public normally has no acces to: the underground of Berlin. The exhibition “Myth Germania- Shadows and Traces of the Imperial Capital” sheds new light onto the historical site around the river Spree near Central Station and the former ministerial gardens. The exhibit spans from the disastrous collapse during construction of the North-South S-Bahn line, to the planning of the “Great Hall”, through to the accumulation of rubble in so-called mounts of debris (like the “Teufelsberg”) during Berlin’s post-war reconstruction. Particular attention is paid to the consequences of the “relocation plans” for Berlin’s Jews. For this exhibition, the Berlin Underworlds' Association has assembled years of its own findings on this subject, together with the latest research available. A large variety of photos, building plans and architectural models - of the “Great Hall” and the “North-South Axis” - complement the prepared texts. In addition to this exposition the Association offers In-depth tours of Berlin´s underground secrets from WW2 and the Cold War Brunnenstrasse 105 13355 Berlin Tel: +49 30 499 105 17 Metro: U-Gesundbrunnen / S-Gesundbrunnen > The aBBa sToRy Thank you for the music. The legendary Swedish cult band ABBA continues right up to the present day to exert a phenomenal appeal. The quartet may no longer appear together on stage, but fans and latter-day followers can now witness the seeming resurrection in the ABBA-Story “Thank you for the music”. Brought to the stage by successful producer, Bernhard Kurz (“Stars in Concert”, “Phantom of the Opera”, “Cats”, “Starlight Express”), the show carries the audience right back to the party atmosphere of the 70s. The two-hour spectacular features all ABBA’s greatest performed by artists who not only look astonishingly like the original lineup, but also exactly reproduce their sound. In small, amusing episodes, a presenter chronicles the meteoric rise of the band, beginning in 1974 when they won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton with the hit song “Waterloo”. The presenter is none other than Uwe Hübner, a well-known authority on hit singles. The concert is a very special homage to the band and its music. Daily open Wed-Sat 20:30 pm Sun 19:00 pm Sonnenallee 225 12057 Berlin Tel: +49 30 6831 0 Metro: S-Sonnenallee Berlin is the city of diversity. And we know all about it! Hotels. Tickets.
