The Café Keese in Charlottenburg is a charming mix of something OUT that it is IN again! Founded in 1966 in Berlin, Café Keese remained a pure dance hall throughout the years. Café Keese is primarily known for its 135 (!) desk phones that are installed on all tables and allow lonely hearts to get in touch.
The Café Keese is a West Berlin institution which has been screened in many film and television productions. For instance, the movie “Beyond the Sea” with Kevin Spacey was partly filmed at Café Keese.
Even ordinary Berliners remain faithful to Café Keese. Around 1.000 to 1.500 people dance in this dance hall every week. It is mostly dance enthusiasts aged 40 and older that enjoy the different theme nights ( "Dance into May", "Dancing in the Lord's Day", "dance on Pentecost Sunday & Whit Monday"). Every Tuesday Café Keese opens for a Disco Fox Party, THE "feel-good dance party" in Berlin. Everyone who is a little rusty is coached in a free dance lesson between 7 and 8:30pm. Every first Wednesday of the month there is a party for Boogie & Rock'n'Roll fans. The overall music genre in Keese is German Schlager and dance classics.
Café Keese always paid attention to manners, but the dress code is a little looser nowadays. Guests should wear smart casual (that usually means no blue jeans and no holes), but a tie is no longer required. By the way: The legendary ladies' choice in Keese still exists, but is now also considered a little looser.
