Charlottenburg's nightlife centers around Kantstrasse, where some of Berlin's best performing arts venues are located. You'll find comfortable lounges popular with tourists and older crowds—it's much more relaxed than the more frenzied nightlife farther east.

Moabit isn’t quite known for its restaurants and nightlife, but this small brewery, open since 2005, is a beer-lover’s destination. After operating a short-lived but beloved restaurant under the S-bahn tracks nearby, Brewbaker moved its operation to the newly renovated redbrick Arminiushalle market hall. Expect a pale ale on tap as well as their very own pilsner, and look forward to seasonal variations like pumpkin lager in fall or ginger beer in winter. They also offer frequent brewing courses and beer seminars to inspire the next generation of small brewers.
In an imposing power station in a barren stretch of land between Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain (the name borrows from both neighborhoods), Berghain has achieved international fame as the hedonistic heart of techno music—it was originally a '90s techno club called Ostgut. Although it's also a well-respected center of gay nightlife in Berlin, the club welcomes both genders. It's only open on weekends (for 48 hours straight, from midnight on Friday to midnight on Sunday), and it has become something of a local tradition to arrive on Sunday morning and dance until closing. Upstairs, the slightly smaller (but by no means intimate) Panorama Bar offers different beats and a place to go on Friday before the main club opens at midnight.
