Party in Berlin

Here are some  party-suggestions from your favorite place to stay in Berlin, EastSeven Hostel.


Parties on Friday night:

1 White Trash Fast Food


Mike Penny and his Moonshiners

Mike Penny & his Moonshiners haben sich voll und ganz dem authentischen
Western Swing & Hillbilly aus den 30er – 50er Jahren verschrieben. Hier ist
alles original: Instrumente, Outfit, Sound und Musik. Mittlerweile sind die
Jungs auch auf großen Festivals wie dem Rockabilly Rave in England oder der
Summer Jamboree in Italien zu sehen. Die erste CD ist 2010 bei Rhythm Bomb
Records erschienen, trägt den Titel: “Don’t start breathin down my neck” und
enthält neben 15 charmanten und swingenden Tracks ein Rezept für
selbstgebrannten “Moonshine”. Howdy & Yeehaw!!

2. Bassy Cowboy Club

Les Decadents (60s Garage/R&B)
DJ (club): Lobotomy (rock & roll, jive, country, rockabilly, 60s garage, exotica, soul, swing)
DJ (bar): Berlin Nocturne (rockabilly, surf, exotica, latin, western swing&pop, 60s r’n’r & soul, teenbeat)

For our debut in 2012 we are taking the stage and raising the roof again at the world famous Bassy Club, the supernova of 60s beats in the centre of the universe. And don’t forget: the world will end in 2012. If you missed Les Decadents, it will torment you for ever while you roast in hell. So don’t be a stick-in-the-mud couch potato, get out your horns and trident, bring your fire and brimstone and come and get roasted at the hottest party before Armageddon.

Our Top 3 for Sunday the 7th of February


Sunday is fleamarket day. Close to the hostel (500 m)you find the Arkonaplatz Fleamarket and the famous Mauerpark fleamarket. You don´t want to buy something – no problem you first of all go there to see all kind of urban subjects with hangover and even sober ones. Berliners go there – you should as well.

LIVE @ Berlin Arena, a great german act!

It´s f*cking cold outside so let´s all go to the Hamam to enjoy a really nice turkish bath and warm up a little…

Hamam is a bathing ceremony of the cleansing of the body and soul. Relaxation and communication in a warm and pleasant atmosphere, are key elements of the Hamam culture. Here women from different cultures and walks of life work and meet.

You’ll find the Hamam at Mariannenstr. 6 in Kreuzberg

For women only!!!!

For men/women: there is a really nice sauna, just around the corner from the hostel, the Olivin Sauna!

Hope you have a great time in Berlin! To make a booking at the EastSeven Berlin Hostel klick HERE. See you soon.
