Study of the club Commission Berlin attracted 2018 three million Club of tourists

The club culture is now just as much of Berlin as the Brandenburg gate or the curry Wurst. The one who comes as a Tourist in the city, does not infrequently, to try once more his luck in front of the Berghain or the Kater Blau, once the strict view of the part of the world-famous bouncer cope and get on with an almost affectionate gebrummten "fun" entry into this special world.

Numerous New York Times article, shows like "Beat" or the latest Berlinale-Film "Berlin Bouncer" telling of the myth of the Berlin club culture. But the night life not only provides fuel for stories about crash and ecstasy, but also has some positive effects on the Rest of the city culturally as well as economically.

Among other things, it was on Tuesday night in the neukölln scene club Schwuz, to be loaded into the Berlin club Commission its annual kick-off event. There, the Association that promotes the interests of the Berlin club owners and against the displacement of Clubs, and the specially commissioned study, "the club culture of Berlin in 2019". The new Chairman Pamela Schobeß and press spokesman Lutz Leichsenring and culture Senator Klaus Lederer (die Linke) and the Secretary of state for economic, Christian Rickerts (for the Greens in the Senate) was discussed.

according to The study, in 2018, three million "Club of tourists" came to Berlin. So, I mean people who traveled in the first place of the night life in the city. They spent an average of 204 euros per day and were, according to the study, for a total turnover of 1.48 billion Euro in the Clubs, but also as a spill-over effect in Hotels, Taxis or Restaurants. In addition, the Clubs of Berlin and organizer of 2018, offered a total of 9040 people directly to work, such as a bouncer, bartender or wardrobe personnel.

Leichsenring stressed at the panel discussion, the Association wanted to show that club culture serves to maximize the profit of the operator. Rather, to benefit the whole of Berlin. Also, Lederer sees the club culture as particularly worth protecting. "We here in Berlin are still many places that are quite unique," he said.

"Good things come when you talk to each other"

Also the sound protection Fund, was one of the great achievements of the club Commission. "This shows what can arise for good things, when you talk to each other and the club operator and the Senate work together," said the Chairman Schobeß. For the Fund, the Berlin Senate presented a Million euros available, club operators can apply for since the end of November, a promotion, to install in your Club to better sound insulation. And celebrate better to live with and side by side work. The demand had been invested in huge, said Schobeß, the money makes sense. "The club culture is protected by the local residents to be protected from the noise," she said.

For the extrusion of Clubs from the downtown area, only noise complaints but are not responsible, but also investors, rising rents or expiring leases, for short, gentrification. The Clubs themselves are gentrification drivers, because they make through their creative potential new neighborhoods attractive, you might call the irony of fate. For Lederer, however, is clear: "the Problem is the exploitation by Capital, not the creativity in the Neighborhoods."
