KATER BLAU, HOLZMARKTSTRAßE 25
The contemporary incarnation of Berlin’s legendary Bar 25 is Kater Blau, a kaleidoscopic circus rave. In the outdoor Der Acid Bogen room I sketched from the top of the stadium seating circling its carnivalesque dance pit. Squinting through smoke, strobes and swaying asses, I focused on the floral garlands laced around the DJ booth and wooden bar, the cat snout peeking above the stage and the dangling light fixtures flashing around a huge revolving lantern. A woman dancing on the railing would occasionally hop over to peer at my sketchbook.
