The Lido keeps the spirit of the old Indie Kreuzberg alive
Lido is the Italian name for a spa or bathing beach. In Berlin it stands for one of the most famous locations in the Rock sector, opposite the old Curvry Brache, which is now Zalando territory. Together with Astra and Bi Nuuu (sic!) the Rock heart of the capital.
Ok, but seriously: The Lido is Kreuzberg’s Rock living room couch, located in the middle of the Wrangelkiez, corner of Cuvry- and Schlesische Straße and is one of the best Indie/Rock/Death Metal/Grind/Experimental/Pop concert clubs in Berlin. The club also maintains its undergroundaffines image, which is reflected in the moderate prices for tickets.
History of the Lido location
In the 1950s and 1960s, the Lido was one of the cinemas par excellence. In the 70’s it became the “Westside” and already made a lot of music in the direction of rock’ n’ roll. In the 80’s it was simply dense and nothing happened until May 2006, except for party events like Rock AG or Balkanbeats, there are regular bands. Maximo Park, Cocorosie, sport enthusiasts, for example, were stillers and the beat steaks in the club. There is also a nice outdoor area that is accessible even in winter. The Lido offers space for up to 600 people in the large hall. Often used for artys, a large area in the rear club will be used.
