NORTHERN GERMANY


helped create the fi rst jam session at the café. Owner Jon Palzer has worked at Session for over a year and sees diff erent crowds come through all the time to experience the new music created on stage.


“T ere’s every kind of music here. As for the


age group, that also depends on the night. It’s the hardest job I ever had, but worth it,” Palzer said. T is love aff air with music is exemplifi ed by


other stage performers as well, including SugarBear, a local who also jams out at Session. “T ere’s a chance to open up on your music and


everyone can participate,” SugarBear said. T e Miami native moved to Berlin eight years


ago because he feels the city is more open-minded; now he sees the city as home. SugarBear considers Session’s stage to be home as he has been playing a little bit of everything there for the last six months. T e atmosphere of friendliness and openness


lingers at Session Café and is perfect for a music enthusiast in need for some original beats.


Some other bars to check out in Berlin include the following:


CCCP Bar: Stuffed animals and armor line the red walls at CCCP


. The bar offers karaoke, live


bands and a dance fl oor with a wide range of music. Although drinks are pricey, the atmosphere is well worth the opportunity to meet some fun- loving locals.


Goldman’s Bar is reminiscent of a kitschy bar mixed with a bit of home. Located inside Circus Hostel, this is the perfect place to meet travelers like yourself for a night (in) or out on the town.


Absinthe bars are located throughout the city. The famous licorice-fl avored drink can be concocted in several ways, including straight or by burning sugar to place in your drink. Either way, enjoy!

Insider’s Tour of the Pub Crawl in Berlin, a popular tour among youth, is another Berlin novelty. The tour, for a low price of 12 euro, leads those looking for a party on a gallavant across the city to fi ve clubs and bars. It includes a beer at the beginning of the journey.


Klub der Republic (KDR) is known for its dark atmosphere and drinks that run cheap. It is mainly youth oriented and has an international feel, as people from all over go there. It does not open until 1 a.m.
