iIt’s really nice to see a city parliament actively fighting for it’s nightlife, isn’t it? That is exactly what Berlin’s government is doing after dropping €1 million into the nightlife industry in order to help clubs pay for soundproofing.

A win for developers and a win for nightlife!
Speaking on the the city’s club culture, Green Group’s club spokesperson Georg Kössler says it “has given Berlin so much that the city now has to save the clubs”. Great attitude, Georg.
The Club Commission’s Lutz Leichsenring is also welcoming of the funds, writing “In a densely populated city, where residential development is close to music venues, investment must be made in noise protection to ensure coexistence.”
Great work, Berlin. You’ve proved once again that you’re the coolest damn city in the world.
