Exhibition: Frequency’s Synchronies

Our exhibition at Gat Point Charlie, organized by Karne Kunst, is called “Frequency’s synchronies” by Spanish illustrator Sandra Fiz and Venezuelan DJ Claudio Pérez-Füves, aka Drrk’s Secnd.

The vernissage was on Friday, August 17th at 7pm at the hotel. “The work of the artists consists of an audio-visual project which explores the different stages of a relationship through songs reflected in images. Feelings like falling in love, the sensation of being reborn, conflict, or even hatred, are some of the emotions that are illustrated in a song and on a paper. An exhibition that especially music lovers of rock, post punk, or psychedelic among other genres, will really appreciate” (Karne Kunst).

This exhibition was curated by Marcela Villanueva and produced by Karne Kunst.

Artists’ CV:
Sandra Fiz, artist based in Berlin since September 2017, completed her training as an illustrator at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Madrid and the IED of the same city. Her work has been exhibited in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Germany, Russia and China.
Claudio Pérez-Füves, aka Drrk’s Secnd, based in Berlin for the last 10 years, has played at places such as Picnic Bar, Du Beast or Tresor, and in Madrid, at El Monasterio, at Lavapies local festivities, or at the Chill Out Bar where he was a resident DJ.

Exhibition: “Half human. Half Beast”

Last June 7, 2018, Gat Point Charlie hosted the vernissage of the exhibition “Half Human Half Beast” by Walter Tello und Lucila Bristow organised by Karne Kunst. For the first time with music by DJ ABRIBASS.

Come to see the magnificent and polyvalent work of the artists until the 5th of August!



After-work drinks in Berlin

Here at Gatrooms, we think it’s really important to wind down after a long day at work to make sure that we’re revived and on our game the next day. Where better to relax than a place that has nothing to do with the stresses of our job, such as a bar with great music and an even better atmosphere?
That’s why we held the first After Work Gat Session at our Room Room Bar last Thursday 31st May, kicking off a series of soirées that aim to create a unique haven for the work-weary in the city, each with background music provided by different DJs.
If you can’t make it to our sessions at the Room Room Bar at Gat Point Charlie, here are four options that we think will help you recharge your batteries after a long, hard day.


Allan’s Breakfast Club & Wine Bar
Allan’s restaurant serves breakfast into late afternoon before transforming into a bistrot wine bar at 7.30 pm. Located on Rykestraße, one of the most beautiful streets in the city, it also offers breathtaking views of the Wasserturm water tower from its terrace.


Hopfenreich Craft Beer Bar Berlin
This temple to craft beer, which some refer to as “hop heaven”, is nestled in a quiet corner of the bustling Kreuzberg street. Kick back, relax and enjoy a Pale Ale or one of the many local and old-school German beers on offer.


Monkey bar
Overlooking the Tiergarten, this bar on the top floor of a high-rise building has it all: incredible views over the city, live music, and drinks from the four corners of the globe.


Newton bar
This classy cocktail bar is the go-to for any Mad Men fans out there. The walls are covered with photographer Helmut Newton’s life-size nudes above red leather chairs. Warning: if the walls make you feel a little uncomfortable, be careful with the menu, too! There is also a smoking room where you can order yourself a Cuban cigar to enjoy alongside a brandy or a glass of good wine.


Berlin from the heights


Some say that a fear of heights is more about being scared you will throw yourself off than actually falling, and that vertigo is caused by being so strongly attracted to the depths before you that you feel an urge to jump.
That’s why people love going up to the highest point in any given city to enjoy a bird’s eye view from the very edge of a terrace above the abyss.
In Berlin, you would realize just how green the city is thanks to its extensive parks. You would also discover that it was built low to the ground, which makes the more modern skyscrapers stand out in stark contrast, and you would have the perfect panoramic view of the city’s most important buildings and monuments.
This post is about four places that are perfect for discovering Berlin from the heights. There is something for everyone, whether you love being perched on a ledge or prefer to sit at a more conservative table at a rooftop bar.


Zionskirche Tower

The Mitte district is home to a beautiful arched window through which you can enjoy a close-up view of the city without the city seeing you.



Klunkerkranich Rooftop Bar

Don’t miss watching the sun set over the rooftops of Berlin. Stay awhile afterwards – they serve food and fresh fruit juices and there is live music, too.



Leave your fear of heights on terra firma and venture up 420 stairs. It is well worth the hike to take in the spectacular views of Berlin from 78 metres above ground.


Apart from our selection of personal favourites, there are other places in Berlin that are renowned for their views over the city, such as the dome of Berlin Cathedral, the Berliner Fernsehturm TV tower, the Panoramapunkt viewpoint, the Siegessäule victory column and the Funkturm tower.
Oh, and don’t forget: there are great views of the city from Hotel Gat Point Charlie...


Berlin’s alternative historical sites

At school, everyone learns about the events that shaped Germany, and particularly Berlin, during the last century: the Weimar Republic, the subsequent rise of National Socialism, and of course, Adolf Hitler. The rest, as they say, is history. Over time, the city of Berlin has grown and changed, but has always retained the essence of its most recent past.

In this post, we reveal four special, lesser-known spots in the German capital that have a great story to tell.

A haven for outspoken artists


Dead Chicken Alley is one of the city’s most colourful and alternative back streets, and is covered in lights, graffiti and bunting. However, behind the art, this bohemian street gallery is a reflection of the desire of a group of young artists called “The Dead Chickens” to express themselves freely shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. See if you can spot Banksy’s work!

An upside-down brothel

As soon as you walk through the door at Madame Claude, you realise that this place literally turns the world on its head. The fact that the chairs, tables and lamps hang down from the ceiling is not the only striking feature of the bar: it used to be a brothel that was very popular with American soldiers after the Second World War.

A café with a history

Café Einstein is a Viennese-style coffee shop that serves the best Apfelstrudel in the city. This striking building, with its huge windows and elegant columns, has housed a sewing factory that survived both World Wars, a gambling den and even a Nazi agency.

A night in the roaring twenties

Ballhaus Berlin is a dance hall that dates back to between the wars, and the glitz and glamour of the era are unmistakable in the music, décor and its Tischtelefonen, which were used at the time to ask whoever caught your eye for a spin around the dance floor. Are you ready for some retro-flirting?

Berlin is a city that is teeming with history, and the Hotel Gat Point Charlie has had its fair share of past adventures, too: during the Cold War, the building housed the Ministry for National Security, which employed more than 60,000 secret agents.

Photo exhibition: Berlin according to Latin American artists
