Summer Berlin

…finally summer is here

Summer in Berlin is great, there are a lot of cool beach bars to hang out during the day and night time…

EastSeven´s TOP 5:

1. Bar 25
the best open air club in town. great dj´s playing great electronic tunes…enjoy music coktails and more with a perfect view over the river spree
2. Kiki Blofeld
amazingly cool open air bar with an indoor club. Opens daily at 2pm
3. YAAM
Great reggea parties!
An important element of the YAAM is the decoration and the artistic development – inspired by Jim Avignon, who initially influenced the visual appearance enourmously.
This setting offers painters, sprayers, photographers and
others a chance to present their work to a broad audience.
fettes Bild since 04, at the road.. !very long picture!
4.Badeschiff & Hoppetosse
enjoy a beach feeling, cool down in one of the coolest pools in town, floathing on the river spree! all the cool people come here!
5. Deck 5
rooftop beachbar….a bit difficult to find, that´s why its still a bit of a secret spot, which is cool. Go to the Schönhauser Arcaden shopping mall. Take the elevator to the 5th floor…and there you´ll have it: sun coktails and a great view…

Hope you will enjoy your stay in Berlin!!!
