Berlin’s Club der Visionaere Damaged in Fire
Three people were injured in the blaze.
A fire broke out at Berlin’s Club der Visionaere this morning, leaving the popular canal-side venue “burned out almost completely” and “slightly injuring” three people, according to the city’s fire department.
Local firefighters were called to the venue in the early hours of Saturday morning local time, and they were successful in their attempts to stop the fire from spreading to a nearby gas station. The cause is not yet confirmed.
The popular Kreuzberg venue is one of the German capital’s most renowned nightspots, hosting parties all throughout the summer with a focus on minimal-leaning beats. Friday night’s party featured Perlon affiliate James Dean Brown plus some DJs from Tokyo.
Despite fears for the worst, club owner Gregor Kraemer has confirmed that the damage is not as bad as originally feared, and that it extends only to the outside decking area. He hopes to reopen soon, and until then parties will be hosted at nearby Hoppetosse, starting Sunday.
