Our fingers are itching. After months of staring at the woodchip wallpaper of our Berlin flats, we have “BOCK” as we like to say in German (which means to be very much in the mood for something). Bock, to go out again. Bock to sway to smooth electronic or raging techno beats while moving our bodies, sipping on a cold beer. Normally the Berlin crowd is used to completely different circumstances at the start of the summer party season when the painful question is, what party to attend, instead of none at all.
This year everything is different. Or least we thought so. After Berlin’s motivated party crowd heavy heartedly accepted the no-clubbing-corona-rules for 2020, there now appears to be hope. Little by little the bigger clubs with an outside area are opening their gardens! At first only for gastronomy purposes with strict “no dancing” rules, but that’s enough to give our grieving party community a glimmer of hope.
Note: Please consult the corresponding social media pages of each club for any changes in regards to their opening times. These might change according to the weather and the current situation.
Sisyphos is opening its beautiful outdoor area for its tasty food and drinks! There will be music, but there won’t be dancing. Every guest is kindly asked to stick to the rules, in order for the club to keep its gates open. Bring your mask and outdoor clothes! It is first-come, first-served, so better get in line!
Sisyphos, Hauptstraße 15, 10317 Berlin.
Opening hours: Wednesday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday 3 – 10pm, Thursday 12 – 10pm
