Ich liebe Berlin
There's a lot to love in Berlin. Greenhouse is an art collective/studio building not far from where our studios are, which doubles up as a venue.
The site is near Neukölln, which is full of bars, record stores, cafes, and the Berliner creative community. There are loads of venues in the Neukölln area — smaller places like Donau115 (jam sessions, jazz stuff) and Prachtwerk, with Open Stage every Wednesday, through to SchwuZ, Berlin's largest queer cultural institution.
Fancy a walk further afield? Take a stroll along Landwehr Canal, taking in Hardwax (a mecca for techno, house, experimental club music), followed by a break at Brammibal's all vegan donuts, and finishing at OYE Records (funk, hip hop, house music).
