Unlocking the Mystique: Berghain Chronicles in Berlin's Techno Wonderland
Cold spotlight illuminates the crowd waiting to be admitted to the box-shaped structure. Conversations in various languages fill the air, and you observe the disappointed faces of those rejected at the door. Pockets and wallets are carefully searched. Even before the grand apocalyptic scene at the coat check, the Berghain feeling sets in. Passing through the labyrinth of concrete pillars supporting the dance floor, the view into the Techno Cathedral unfolds on the stairs. You gaze at the dance floor, with the blue light of the bar seeming to shine through the large glass windows on the right. Another staircase is leading to the Panorama Bar on the left. Because this space will never feel ordinary, it can become the stage for unimaginable pleasures.
How it began
It all began in the melancholy atmosphere of the fading nineties because the techno scene in Berlin-Mitte had lost its strength. In this time, Ostgut opened its doors. Initially, only the gay audience from the adjacent sex club celebrated there to hard, tastefully selected techno music. One half of the dance floor was populated by muscular, bald men in army pants and boots, with bare torsos.The other half by a diverse, gay audience. It took some time for this venue to become known in the heterosexual party scene. For both sides, the club was a completely new experience.
The weariness that had settled over parties in established clubs disappeared: The older generation was reminded of their first contact with music in the early nineties. The younger generation was fascinated by the social credibility of Ostgut: Here, no one went out to boast about it in their agency the next morning. Only what happened in the here and now mattered.
A fresh start
By combining the perfect location, understated decor, optimal sound, tasteful booking, and impeccable service, the Berghain, opened in 2004, once again and outshone all other clubs in the city. It is not just a place to blow off steam after a workweek or listen to interesting music. It is a free space; no aspect of what one does there must be derivable from the rest of one's lifestyle. By presenting the greatest possible pleasures, it forces one to ask oneself: What do I want? Where do I place myself on the map of social, sexual, and musical enjoyment? It is a place where one learns to confront one's desires.
