    Surprisingly, there was no real commentary of what happens inside the club. Bit of an anti-climax.

    The bouncers are losers except for the tallest man with the big jaw… They are a breed who are just one of many nose booger crunchs in the Universe with narcissist inferior complexes who can’t do anything else for employment and get a jones for pulling their wank rank on those who simply wish to have fun… For there are many degenerates allowed past their smelly gate… So don’t let it get to your esteem.

    Berghain, wait online in cue for drugs at the lew…

    Berghain, if you’re a gay male there’s quick entry at the door…

    Berghain, once upon a time a cool club…

    Especially notably the panorama etage….

    Though it’s now the David guetta of clubs hyped joint without a cause but vacuuming dinero with tripping yups and attitude DMA Xtc searchers “deluded” by a perception of cool… No DaGuetta music is not played there… Tho there are nights that play worse…

    If you can let go of all that bullshit…. Then it’s eine Ponyhof… if you haven’t had the experience from 5 years minimum ago… Perspective, is everything. Berghain, is blasé for the “today”

    Today? ….everyone’s a DJ… Give peeps Ableton and a loop, and they’re tripping.

    We all know, everything sounds and feels good on Xtc… 😉

    Today? Jetz? 2015…. .kiss the right buttock and entry and a turntable is yours there…

    A great sound system on the main level if dosed with ketamine and standing in the center as your ears are blown back by Techno sand…. Wish there were mo talent in the booth spinning MP3s

    Go up a flight and hope for the best at Panorama…. There’s a cute bar tender Linda with the biggest smile….

    And well… hope to get in…. Just realize the smallest bouncer there, has the hugest Napoleon complex and well… Have compassion for them. At the end of a lifetime, there won’t be much to take to heart with their obituary. All will work out… It’s not like getting married in Kentucky if you share the same XY

    I enjoyed your article…

    Travel bright….

    @drnduck … What goes on inside? Duh!? ….it’s not rocket science to figure it out… It’s an old factory building with a couple of dark corners where you can snort, extort, court, sleep, bounce and be stupid…. With en exit that leads you to a line…. A line…. Of taxis and others waiting to get in and be disrespected. 😉
