The area around the arena is without a doubt one of the most exciting of the city. The location is beautiful, the Glashaus and Badeschiff foremost, and the setting on the borders of the Spree almost too good to be true. But at the latest since the arrival of White Trash Fast Food it has also become a tourist magnet, or hell if you like.
The Arena Club is also treading a thin line. The location is awesome: an intimate atmosphere, with a great sound system and a light show to match it. But because of the overdose of tourists it often lacks the uncompromising attitude that is so typical for the Berlin techno scene, though the positive exceptions immdediately position themselves amongst the highlights of the city’s nightlife.
