Stattbad Wedding 2010

13 Jun ’10 by Sara Places
The Stattbad Wedding closed early 2015 because they apparently didn't have permission to run clubnights. A sad day for Berlins nightlife scene indeed.

The Stattbad in Wedding is one of the big things warming up to this hipster deserted district. The saying “Wedding is the next big thing” has become something like a joke. I hope it is; I like Wedding that way. I like it because it just adds to the melting pot of styles and people (of course, much of it has to do with poverty and criminality). I’d love to see it change and evolve overtime because of the people here, not because of the gentrification.

That said, I do like it (and very much so) when something pops up every now and then that has an artificial feel to it – such as the Stattbad, a former swimming hall that has been transformed into a music venue, gallery and exhibition spot for indie artists. I don’t know how long it will last – I think the lease was said to be up last year but thankfully, they’re still standing – but I hope that some of its spirit will spread over Wedding.

Everyone needs a handful of glitter sometimes.
