Madame Claude Bar, Berlin

3.8
#43 of 400 in Nightlife in Berlin
Madame CLAUDE is an underground bar set up in a former brothel based in the Kreuzberg-Schlesisches Tor district, well-known for its intense alternative nightlife. Created by three French people, friends from high school but settled in Paris, Madrid and London and decided to meet in Berlin, Madame CLAUDE is composed of a series of small rooms, intimate nooks and corridors resembling a labyrinth. To access the bar, the public must go through a wardrobe located in a disturbing living-room refering to David Lynch’s Twin Peaks red room. The “drinking & dining room” is totally upside down and literally defies the laws of gravity: the furniture is on the ceiling while mouldings and lights can be found on the floor. With live acts and/or DJs every night, music is the heart of the place.

Bar open from 19.00 till late... Events every night at 21.00

Monday: eXperimontag (Experimental musci from avant-garde to noise)

"The dining room features chairs and tables decked with lamps and tablecloths hanging upside down from the ceiling above diners. The surreal decor continues in a red room inspired by the one in David Lynch's Twin Peaks, and has a Bar open at 19.00 till late...

Events every nights at 21.00 hidden inside a wardrobe leading through to a labyrinth of nooks.''

The Guardian

"Madame Claude takes the idea of a bar and flips it on its head. Literally."

  • Great atmosphere with good vibes. We just missed the live music but would be a great venue for it. Worth a visit if in the area, even if it's just to see the upside-down world!  more »
  • It is cozy for a drink with friends although it has bad air refreshment. The furniture in the ceiling is something odd that you can go to see just that. It has cheap entrance.  more »

  • Although they get some good gigs on here in the basement, the actual bar is pretty horrible. The decoration might have been cool in 2005 but it’s looking extremely tatty these days. Nice staff, good drink prices etc but it’s a favourite of French business school students on Erasmus and that’s all you need to know
  • The bartenders seem to know us so well, they know what we want before we order! And after all let's be honest, there's nothing better than living in fear of a chair or table falling from the ceiling onto your cocktail 🤣 As there's so much to do in Berlin, this little gem might be relatively unknown but it's great to impress your friends and treat them to an unexpectedly quirky night. Only problem, it's allowed to smoke so it can get a bit hard to breathe and then, next day is laundry day!
