Spindler & Klatt

Asian-Euro­pean Fu­sion. Restau­rant, lounge, and club in one, Spindler & Klatt makes full use of its prime river lo­ca­tion.

Even in colder months, the chic, post-industrial in­te­rior – built in the 1800s as an army bak­ery – is un­for­get­table too. On Fri­days and Satur­days, the spot trans­forms into a club from 23pm. €€€. Daily D. www.spindlerk­latt.com. Köpenicker Str. 16–17. T: 030 319881860. U Sch­le­sis­ches Tor. G4
