The going-out embargo of the past two years was tough for everyone – but you get the sense that Berlin would have felt it more keenly than most. After all, this is a city that lionises partying, freedom, self-expression, and the search for the new and unknown like no other. 

With socialising back on the agenda and summer just around the corner, Berlin is buzzing. The warmer months are all about going out and staying out: parks are plentiful (think Tempelhof, Tiergarten, Volkspark Hasenheide, and Körnerpark) and weekends are packed with open-air club and music events (OXI, Anomalie, Else, and Club OST, among many others). And for those moments where you feel like getting back to nature, the city is surrounded by lakes that provide the perfect day-trip escape.

Group chats are currently dominated by talk of one of Berlin’s heavy hitter events: Rave The Planet. Formerly known as Love Parade, the world’s largest techno party has been on hiatus since 2006, and the excitement around its relaunch has reached fever pitch. There’s also much discussion about which festivals are making the cut this summer, with Melt, Whole, Garbicz, and Nation of Gondwana all garnering attention. Partying is front and centre – of course – but with its return has come a joy and optimism that’s been missing in recent years; a sense of community that’s helping the city to heal after a difficult few years. 

Soho House Berlin is all about creating a similar sense of community, and has become a cornerstone of a burgeoning creative hub with socialising, connection, and self-care at its heart. Set over eight floors of a restored Bauhaus building in the Mitte district, it offers a rooftop pool, restaurants and bars, a screening room, a full Cowshed spa, and Soho Health Club. Plus, The Red Room in the basement hosts live music and events. Here’s everything you need to know about our House in the German capital.
