Anita Berber was opened by two grand masters of the Berlin techno scene, Sammy Dee and Tom Clark in September 2013. The club and restaurant is named after the notorious nude actress, dancer and writer, who was the subject of an Otto Dix painting, lived an excessive life during the 1920s in Berlin and died already with 29. If you made it through the backyards – walk the path to the very end and then right to the very end, last staircase – the Twenties come back to life: Anita Berber is full of tasty and hand-picked Art Deco figurine lamps, golden ceiling fans and cute barmen in white shirts. The atmosphere is intimate and quiet enough to talk at the well equipped bar, but also loud enough to dance. All in all an impressive addition to the Wedding nightlife, the sound and programm are excellent, prices reasonable and the people at the bar – not seldom Tom or Sammy themselves – are refreshingly friendly and uncool. Great for thriving stiff drinks or just homemade Rhabarberschorle before partying. Or just stay the whole night and dance.
