For our latest guide we have once again teamed up with the lovely Laura Le Marchand from Down by Retro and Neukölln Shopping Nacht to give you the best of her favorite district: Neukölln. After we extensively covered all the shops and cafes in our previous collaborations we thought we’d give you something different this time: A nightlife guide including some of the hottest bars, parties and clubs of the popular district. All of these serve as perfect spots to drink and dance after an evening full of shopping and mingling at the Neukölln Shopping Night, which goes into its 6th edition this coming Saturday (May 7, 2016). Once again all the trendy spots in various neighborhoods of Neukölln will be open until 22h and offer some kind of special or mini event in their stores. More infos on the event and our new Neukölln Nightlife Guide curated by Laura after the jump.

Here’s a little teaser to get you in the mood for the next Neukölln Shopping Night on May 7 and below you will find a map that lists all the participating places.

After a all the special in the shops let’s hit the bars and clubs of the district to have some more fun! Here’s Laura’s selection of the most interesting places in Neukölln right now:

If you enjoy strong drinks, craft beer, and a great atmosphere, than Twinpigs should be your favorite hangout. The atmosphere  is undeniably cool, while the smoky, candlelit rooms are cozy and inviting. The bartenders are welcoming and eager to help you understand your drink options.

Nathanja & Heinrich

Sometimes you just want to have a relaxed drink with a friend in a easy atmosphere without any pretense and fuzz.  Nathanja & Heinrich at Weserkiez is your kind of place than.
