Call It A Night

Where Berlin - - NIGHTLIFE -

In a city where ev­ery night is ex­tra­or­di­nary, the prom­ise to take you out for the Ber­lin night you will never for­get is not an easy one to keep. Luxury tour guides Ber­li­na­gen­ten have se­lected the most var­ied and ec­cen­tric night­time ex­pe­ri­ences to take you on their three-hour Ber­lin By Night tour of the city’s stylish bars and deca­dent clubs: the ex­act lo­ca­tions are kept se­cret un­til the last sec­ond, and the trans­fer from one venue to the next hap­pens aboard a luxury limo. Hen­rik, your guide, will pick you up from your ho­tel, show­ing you Ber­lin sights on the way and fill­ing you in on the ever- evolv­ing nightlife scene. He’s well con­nected too, let­ting you jump queues like a rock star and en­sur­ing a wel­come drink is placed straight in your hand. Just dress ap­pro­pri­ately and be ready to start late and fin­ish early in the morn­ing. www.ber­li­na­gen­
