The spiritual successor to shuttered Berlin club Griessmuehle is open for business. Revier Südost is the name of the new establishment located in what was once the Bärenquell brewery in Berlin’s Niederschöneweide locality.
At the time of writing, only the outdoor Baergarten area of the club is open to visitors as dancing in enclosed spaces is still against Berlin’s emergency COVID-19 guidelines. They began admitting guests last week, with hours of operation now beginning daily at 2:00 PM as noted by Resident Advisor.
Griessmuehle had fallen victim to Berlin’s Clubsterben (“death of clubs” in English) months before the COVID-19 crisis began to derail the entertainment industry. Towards the beginning of the year, they launched a campaign called “Save Our Spaces” in an attempt to raise awareness of the challenges faced by the city’s cultural institutions.
Griessmuehle garnered notoriety for hosting an 87-hour gathering in 2018. The next year, they opened an adjacent record store called Latitude which has also recently relocated due to the pandemic.
More information can be found on the Revier Südost website.
