Ego Club Hamburg

Ego Club - Talstra├če 9, 20359 Hamburg

The first post about a club in Hamburg is coming up, thinking about that it is actually a kinda sad post. The Ego Club is closing and the last 2 parties are already this weekend, so if you can, join for the last time. Officially Magdalena and Solomun want to take a break from being club owners, they stated that it was not a financial decision. Well, if you ask me I'd say it was - since I've seen the club specially on Fridays empty at times, despite having a constant great lineup with top DJ's. There is a lot of rumors also around, for example that Magdalena wants to focus more on her DJ career or that the club just didn't run well enough for Solomun, but who knows.

Going back to the essentials, the Ego is pretty small. It haves a rather small dance floor and bar, upstairs a small chill-out area. Still, I really liked going there due to the fact that they often had the best lineup around, good sound quality and friendly staff.

Keyfacts:

Music: Techno / House / Experimental
Floors: 1-2
Outdoor Area: No
Crowd: 20+
Pricing: normal
Link: Ego

I really like that they do a short pause after the DJ's ended their sets for people to appreciate & clap, this is even in Berlin very rare.

10 Things I Hate About Clubbing

Do you know this?
You arrive at a party around 2-ish and find out that the DJ you actually want to see is playing at 6AM, you arrive at 4-ish and everyone is on a different level than you are and then some stupid photographer is taking very cool pictures of girls with midriff-bearing tops. Not the party you want to be at? Me neither.
Since I'm actually pretty annoyed about a lot of stuff happening, here is my Top 10:

10. No Timetables

I'll be honest on this, I mostly choose the clubs and parties for the music and the DJ's who are playing. So when there is no timetable, which is often the case, the chance is high to arrive at a completely wrong time, specially in Berlin. Fortunately...
