Loc. in: Berlin, Germany

The club takes its name from the historic postcode of that area SO36, in which the SO stands for Sudost (South East). The Kreuzberg district has historically been home to the Berlin punk rock movement, as well as other alternative subcultures in Germany.


SO36 was originally focused largely on punk music and in the 1970s was often frequented by musicians such as Iggy Pop, David Bowie, and Brandon Conde. After problems Martin Kippenberger took over the management in 1979 and tried to create a crossover between punk, new wave and visual art. In those days the club rivalled New York's CBGB as one of the finest new-wave venues in the world, however unlike CBGB the venue still stands today and remains a fixture on the Berlin music scene championing new artists, while staying true to its punk past.
