The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Hop Rooftops in Berlin

3. What to Do

The view and scene at Weekend Club.   

Look for the giant, glowing Mercedes Benz logo perched atop the Europa Center. Start your evening there at the sleek Puro SkyLounge, which just opened last spring. The candlelit corners and sunken sofas are packed by 11 p.m., making it an ideal warm-up destination.

Get a dose of Berlin’s all-hours club scene at the three-tiered Weekend Club, where peak party time is from 2 a.m. to sunrise. Celebrity D.J.'s like Tiefschwarz and Miss Kitten spin house and techno beats on the alfresco roof deck, flanked with space-age pod chairs, wooden benches, and 360-degree views of Berlin.

Party in the Pan Am Lounge, the legendary penthouse bar where airline staffers drank during West Berlin's heyday. Relax in the original mod sofas and Naughahyde wingback chairs before taking in views of Kurfuerstendamm, the zoo, and the Tiergarten from the three terraces. Host a private party, tour the space, or score an invite to the ongoing friends-and-family parties by contacting the Website.
