The best bands of all genres in one city

The German capital is second-to-none when it comes to live gigs that take place daily across the city's eclectic pockets. Whether in piano bars, factories, swanky clubs or old dance halls, live music is the lifeblood of Berlin's music scene. Don't miss the sensuous Quasimodo club in Charlottenburg where jazz, soul and blues legends have been playing since 1975. Another classic is Yorckschlösschen in Kreuzberg, known for its swing, soul, jazz and funk affairs. Dive into the city's punk scene at SO36 where Iggy Pop and David Bowie have both performed. For views of the River Spree, head to underground Hangar 49, another gem in Berlin's live music crown.
