You're never too old to dance the night away in Berlin!
I am in my mid 30's and came to Berlin with my mother. It's always challenging to find activities and night spots that will be enjoyable to different generations. But, Clarchens Ballhause solves this problem in the most fantastic way.
Upon entering the Ballhaus through a beer garden we were greeted by a bouncer and had to pay a small entry fee - usually not the best sign when with 70+ year old mother in toe. The first thing you notice is that people have been dining here for hours. There are drink glasses and wine bottles scattered over long tables full of happy faces. And then you realize you are in the middle of a dance party for the over 40 set!?
It is quite the scene. The music is upbeat, if not a bit outdated (YMCA was in fact on the play list) and the guests are having the time of their life. Although this seems to be a nightclub for adults, if you believe in the saying, "if you can't beat them, join them" then anyone at any age can have a blast here.
