Clärchens Ballhaus Mitte

Happy, 1920s style ballroom with live-music and German-Italian simple food


On Been There, Emi writes: "Berlin in a nutshell. [....] Good food and delicious home-made cakes. Music changes depending on the day (cha cha, swing, waltz and tango). In the summer, the garden is an additional attraction."

A review on the New York Times focuses mostly on the fun ballroom and not on the food, but also mentions some celebrity factor ("Willem Defoe, Bjork, the artist Matthew Barney, Charlotte Rampling and other names Mr. Schulz is too tired to tick off, have come to Clärchen’s").

The Basics:
Auguststraße 24, 10117 Berlin-Mitte (S Oranienburger Str.)
