What do you ususally do during the hours before the party starts? Hanging at a friend’s house drinking shitty beer? For those with a job it might be a restaurant and a solid bar after. However, it’s always boring and it’s a pain in the ass. To our knowledge Berlin is the only city where the party starts at 2 o‘ clock. Of course they say it starts at 11 pm. But you’ll be the only idiot there until 2. Every attempt to establish a party starting earlier has failed in the past. People simply have adapted to the late night. They visit the gym at 9 pm, dress up, grab some food and, oops, 1 am. Out of a sudden they hurry to the party. Late night and pre-party-events on this weekend once again in out new Party Guide To Berlin.
