This rambling club in an old Berlin mansion feels like a house party, with friendly punters, gardens to chill out in and even a maze in the cellar
Renate is one of my favourite clubs. It’s an old mansion in the Berlin district of Friedrichshain, with baroque fireplaces, mirrored ceilings and a massive garden. Now it’s a club with lots of rooms and different DJs and bars, though it really does feel like a house party. We went there a few times when recording our second album, War Room Stories, in the city. It’s a lot like Pikes hotel in Ibiza, except the music is more all over the place, which is fairly normal for Berlin.
