You’ve probably heard the news by now: The glorious Stattbad Wedding has recently closed (UPDATE Sept 2016: and now news broke it’s being demolished). This weekend the party makers of the club nights Stattnacht are throwing the last two parties in their temporary exile at one of the previously unused halls of Neue Heimat and after that an era has ended. I feel quite sad about this sudden development because the Stattbad was one of those locations that I have recommended through its entire run here on iHeartBerlin, for parties, exhibitions and other crazy stuff happening there. The old public swimming pool found a new purpose in the hands of the makers of Stattbad and the place including all its institutions such as the Open Walls gallery, the Stattbar and the Statt.lab was a wonderful experimental playground for a whole generation of creative Berliners and therefor an important part of the youth culture of Berlin for the past 6 years. It’s a shame that the place has closed so unexpectedly and there is not even a chance to have a final good-bye party there. So as an alternative we went back into our archive and compiled a huge best of from all the coverage and photos we have dedicated to Stattbad over the past 6 years and then some. Enjoy the Stattbad Chronicles after the jump and don’t feel ashamed to shed a tear for this amazing place on the final Stattnacht party on Saturday night and the open air on Sunday. We will miss you, Stattbad Wedding.

Where are the aquatic creatures?

Disco Mystix Halloween Party

The dresscode for Saturday’s Disco Mystix Halloween party was “aquatic creatures”. Most Berliners are so lame about dress up parties, even to Halloween. I hate that. We should play a little game now: find the very few underwater creatures in the photoset after the jump. And by the way, all the little golden star fishes and sea horses spread over the people are from ME!!!

Creatures of the Night


Halloween, night of the undead, ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, werewolfs and other harmless or harmful creatures of the night. The ancient Celts believed that the border between this world and the Otherworld became thin in that night, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the wearing of costumes and masks. Their purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit and thus avoid harm.

Not wearing a costume at Halloween is the most boring thing I can imagine, really guys! Since I am the most obsessive Halloween fan ever, this week’s party guide is basically focused on Halloween parties but has, of course, much more to offer. But beware of the night creatures who will chase you if you are not dressed like one of them..

Parties and guestlist after the jump.

A Wild Romance

Disco Mystix Wild Romance at Stattbad

Love. It is the best thing in the world. And it is the worst. It can be everything you want. And it can dissolve into nothing. It can feel so good. And it can hurt like hell. But in the end, there is nothing more exciting than a Wild Romance

Romantic impressions of last Saturday’s Disco Mystix party at Stattbad after the jump.
