Nowhere captures the essence and energy of Berlin in the 90s as acutely as Tacheles does. It all started at the very start of the decade, just after the Berlin Wall fell, when a group of artists successfully saved the building - an erstwhile department store - from demolition. Despite resembling an architectural dog's dinner, the old ruin was proved to be structurally sound and the artists set up a cultural centre and nightclub here. From that day forth Tacheles has been a ramshackle, graffiti-ed temple to art and booze... Go and worship!

Went a few months ago and was really glad I did. Learned a lot, though apparently it is not as authentic as it once was. There's also a live music club at the top.

Tacheles was really cool and different and sums up Berlin. Can't imagine a place like this in the US. Should def check it out. Top floor is best... kinda rubbly

Absolutely amazing place! Various beach bars, entertainment, galleries and studios inside and up the stairs, plus two more bars upstairs. Different styles everywhere, palpable energy. The only bar I really partied at and didn`t regret it. Not to miss!
