The 40seconds was one of the first rooftop bars in West Berlin. Its music style includes R’n’B, Hip Hop and House. The spectactular view is celebrated on Fridays with a steaming hot Hip Hop party. International DJs and MCs work the crowd.

The dress code is casual smart to sporty-elegant. Ladies get in for free until midnight, with their name on the guest list free entrance is guaranteed until 00:30 am.

Since the grand new opening in September 2015 there has been even more space for dancing and chilling high above Potsdamer Platz. The popular lounge on the 8th floor was enlarged and poshed up with some stylish furniture. The three (!) rooftop terraces still offer a breathtaking panorama from Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church over Siegessäule to the new main railway station Hauptbahnhof. A lift takes the guests in only 40 seconds to the club bearing the same name, a ride that stars like George Michael, Jennifer Lopez, Ralf Möller and Tara Reid have taken to spend a night partying exactly 40 seconds later high above the roofs of Berlin.

By the way: you can also rent the club as location for company functions, movie premieres or weddings.
