About Madame Claude
Formerly a brothel very close to the berlin wall, MADAME CLAUDE is a bar located in the Kreuzberg-Schlesisches Tor district, which is well-known for its intense alternative nightlife.
Initiated by the childish dream to play in a backwards flat, the decoration of the main room of Madame Claude is a reconstitution of an apartment which would have been built upside down challenging the laws of gravity with furnitures on the ceiling.
Madame Claude welcomes events, concerts and DJ’s from 7pm till late.
We are 3 French friends who were previously working in Paris, Madrid and London.
Some years ago, we decided to leave our professional activities to gather in Berlin in order to open a club/music venue although none of us was able to speak German.
After organizing different music shows in Berlin, we opened MADAME CLAUDE in 2008. Since then the place welcomed thousands of great bands and DJs.
In 2011, we launched MARIE ANTOINETTE where we can host Concerts, Club nights, Workshops, Parties etc.
In 2017, we opened FITZROY focusing on Club nights.
Besides these activities, we are still working and collaborating on different projects connected with Cinema, Music and Media.
