Music Clubs in Hamburg

Liveband or international DJs - the Music Clubs in Hamburg offer the right ambience for every taste. Legendary music temples have been and still are the Golden Pudel Club and the Mojo Club, the new Molotow, Hafenklang, Kaiserkeller, Große Freiheit 36, Prinzenbar and Moondoo. The offer is never ending - But still the best recommendation is to just go with the flow of the night and to make your own experiences in little corner pubs, secret bars in backyards and souterrain-clubs.

Unterm Strich

Unterm Strich

"Unterm Strich" is a German saying which means summing things up. In this case, the earnings of the club, which are donated to social projects in St. Pauli, Hamburg's underdog district and home to much nightlife. Instead of ruining the neighborhood with excessive drinking, this partying actually helps. Founders are the "Clubkinder", a social initiative which combines cultural events with collecting donations.
