If you live in Berlin, or have just been to Berlin, there’s a very good chance that you’ve at least heard of a specific legendary nightclub. If you talk to anyone familiar with Berlin and its nightlife invariably talk will at some point turn to Berghain with rumours of hoards of people being turned away at the door and widely discussed theories about what or who makes the cut usually being the topic of conversation. Synonymous with the German capital and its vibrant club scene, there are few clubs that have ever had the fearsome reputation that precedes a visit to Berlin’s infamous ex power plant with the nightspot is notoriously difficult to get into with long queues, the possible chance of the rejection by the clubs strict door and no photography allowed inside all adding to the clubs mystique.

Whilst such is the demand to get into the notorious club that we can imagine the app becoming popular with tourists to Berlin here at Data Transmission we struggle to see how it would be effective as we’ve seen all sorts of people turned away from the clubs door and feel that their entry policy is based far more upon attitude than attire.
For those of you that are interested in the ‘guide’ check out the video below.
