Berghain is the timeless mystery of nightlife culture. Its notoriously selective bouncer Sven Marquardt has become a legend of sorts, while the fascination with getting into the venue has even spurred virtual reality simulations and made the nightclub one of the most widespread myths and memes of the scene.
Illustrator Sophie Halamoda has zeroed in on this Berghain obsession and created a cheeky guide on how to get past the bouncers of the club. Her 28-step story covers all the bases: from clearing out your schedule in advance and picking out what (and what not) to wear to ensuring friendships aren't ruined over granted access, and includes instructions both for those lucky enough to get the pass and advice for those sent home instead.
Check out the guide above.
