Some Berlin clubs are reopening – but with strict ‘no dancing’ rules

Sisyphos, Birgit & Bier, and Rummels Bay will return as outdoor spaces serving drinks and food

Some Berlin clubs are set to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic – but with strict ‘no dancing’ rules.

As Mixmag reports, Sisyphos, Birgit & Bier, and Rummels Bay will be opening their outdoor spaces as beer gardens serving food and drinks. While there will still be music, dancing will be banned.

Other safety measures will be put in place, too, such as only operating table service, and requiring customers and staff to wear face masks.

Berlin’s celebrated club scene has suffered from the lockdown, with venues weighing up how they can reopen safely, if at all. Providing food and drink may be a way to maintain an income until they can safely restart operations.

However, it would still be costly to do so, as club owners told Berliner Zeitung. The venue Yaam, which has a large outdoor area, opted not to open, claiming it would still not be economically viable at this time.
