Well, it may not be Grace Jones but, on the right night, Quasimodo rocks despite being better known as a jazz spot. I went to see The Pretty Things (yes, I know, but 50 years ago they were wrecking the odd stadium in Germany) having missed Dr. Feelgood the previous week, and had a great evening. It's a small venue... More

Quasimodo is located next to the Theater des Westens and the the Delphi Film Palace, so it is a very convenient place to eat or have a drink before or after a screening or theater event. I visited with a friend during the European soccer championships and there was a giant TV screen set up for fans to watch the... More

It was really good place, I absolutely enjoyed! Great music, not expansive drinks and very friendly atmosphere! I don't think that a table is necessary reserved. There were many free places when I've visited this club. Live music was fabulous! If you like jazz, funk and soul I'm sure, this place is for you. Besides the location is great, 10-15... More

Old worn-out furniture. Dirty tables and glasses - messy surroundings. Inhospital staff with an unfriendly attitude.

We went on a Saturday lunchtime (although lunch started about 1 and really you could not get it till nearly 2). This review rating is about the management of this place, as they are either understaffed or poorly run. The food is great and the waiter/waitresses are helpful and friendly - but the problem is getting access to the food... More

Went here with my husband and 22 year old daughter to see "Guitar Crusher", Blues with a bit of Rock and Roll thrown in. What a night!!! He was amazing as was the band, particularly the keyboards player. Suffice to say all three of us were up dancing - great fun!!! Friendly staff and great crowd, loved it.

Whilst it was busy, it was not overly crowded. The drinks were reasonably priced and the music and atmosphere were great. The band that was playing was called Funk Delicious. Would definitely return the next time I'm in Berlin.

We certainly picked the right night to go here. Big Jay McNeely played rythm & blues from the 40-50s and he was just amazing. Good crowd and polite and helpful bartenders. Unforgettable. We were very lucky to randomly end up at Quasimodo that night, so a tip is to check out who`s playing on their website on beforehand. Don`t confuse... More

The thing about Quasimodo that is sometimes not clear to visitors or others, is there are basically two venues at the same location. You have the upstairs, which is a bar and restaurant combined where there is music, usually more mainstream. Then you have the Quasimodo club that is located downstairs, which you can reach by stairs on the lefthand... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
