Wayne Snow's Favourite Places To Eat and Party In Neukölln, Berlin

Nigerian-born singer, songwriter and performer Wayne Snow combines 80s electronic sound with his love of jazz, soul and Fela Kuti. After moving to Berlin to focus on his music, he fell in love with the city's busy international district. "Life in Neukölln is vibrant with color and diversity," he says. A city of contrasts, "at the bend of a street you can find yourself right in the centre of a Turkish market or a small square where silence reigns." From hole-in-the-wall African food spots where you'll find authentic okra stew to lush rooftop bars and nightclubs, read Wayne's guide to see all that Neukölln has to offer.

Klunkerkranich

This rooftop is quite simply one of my favourite places in Neukölln to meet with friends and watch the sun go down. There are two dance floors carefully blasting some sweet 70s, 80s groove. You will find the second dance floor behind the Jeff Koons like sculpture.

Paola Pinkel

You have two possibilities, you go to the right to order a cocktail, with sour whiskey (my favorite) sit down to chat, check people out, dance or you go to the left for dinner at the table with three types of menus, Sicilian, Cypriot or Korean.

Donau115

This place is truly magical. It can make you forget you're in Neukölln altogether. I saw big bands there, incredible jazz trios. Unfortunately there is not yet a dance floor to move around but nothing prevents dancing outside in front of the window.

Sameheads

This little bar club is one of the places you need to know in Neukölln. I do not know if the basement is open in these times of Covid but I will leave you the surprise of what you will find there.

Didi Pa

My favorite place to find the flavors that I miss. Okra Soup, Egusi Soup or Jollof Rice. It´s ran by a Ghanaian brother who runs the hair salon right next to it. It will give you the energy you need for the night.

DocG

There is a good chance that you will meet here at any time. It's like my living room. The parmigiana is exceptional. Carbonara is my favorite sin. They also have superb wine to accompany any meal.

JajaWein

Having lived in France, I can't help looking for a place to drink good wine. Here you will find very good natural wine and of course orange wine.

Tamper meets Jigger

Top for brunch before going to Tempelhof to chill. The plates are quite varied and plentiful. I like to finish with the chocolate soufflé.
