Tango full speed and no more waiters that sacada the dancers 😉 . Claerchens Ballhaus milonga moved up a floor away from the Claerchens Ballhaus main business to the beautiful Spiegelsaal (engl. mirror hall) where baroque and Berlin vintage charme meet surrounded by 4m high mirrors. (Don’t worry about feeling like Alice, they are above head level.) Like the whole building the Mirror Hall is a product of the Gründerzeit (Wilhelminian era) at the end of the 19th century and its aesthetics. Singular in its preserved historical shape, the Mirror Hall is probably one of the very few places in Berlin which still show the signs of their history. The bygone splendour of the partially blind mirrors and the stucco under the high ceiling, the galantery of the reliefs and the shadowy loggia are all beeing revived when people gather again to dance tango here. The wooden sprung floor is easy on your feet but can be a bit sticky at times, so bring shoes with smooth leather soles. A variety of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks are available at Berlin-Mitte tourist prices.
This event takes place every week on Tuesday but is cancelled often.
