Bootshaus Cologne named world's 5th best club, Berghain slips out of top 10
Boothaus in Cologne crowned best club in Germany once again
Bootshaus in Cologne has once again been named one of the top 10 nightclubs in the world. An annual public vote coordinated by the British DJ Mag has named the Cologne nightclub the fifth-best venue in the world for the second year in a row.
“The club became famous above all for its top-class line-ups and wild audience, which is strongly reminiscent of rock concerts,” said Niclas Aigner, manager of Bootshaus. “Almost every great artist has played here.”
Berghain slides to 12th place, Watergate and Tresor also appear
Three years after it first knocked Berghain off the podium as the best club in Germany, Bootshaus has cemented its position inside the top 10, while the legendary Berlin club has been sliding through the rankings, in 2022 placing 12th overall.
The other German clubs to place inside the top 100 are both also in Berlin: Watergate rose one position to place 35th overall, while Tresor climbed 10 places to rank 50th. Overall, Hï Ibiza was ranked the best club in the world, while the US was given the title of “number one club country”, with a total of 16 American nightclubs placing inside the top 100.
