Poodle Bar Berlin
Back in January 2016 in the deepest darkness of Berlin winter when everyone seemed to be a little sad, a little broke and lonely - it felt only natural to make a party. Poodle Bar was born in the Keller of K77, under the Lichtblick Kino, as a weekly gathering for the Ponderosa community, and beyond into Berlin’s DIY & performance scene. Providing space, cheap drinks, loose & open format to share creative practices and raw ideas.
We hosted performances, artist talks, concerts, rituals, watched youtube videos, upcycled clothes, played a lot of music through a boombox, had a lot of shots, danced till very early hours of the morning, and even had live salamanders once.
In 2017 Poodle Bar left it’s original home at K77 to became a free and nomadic pop-up. We were kindly hosted by different spaces around the city such as Fehre6, Liebig12 and Vetomat, making room for performances, first-time experiments, exchange of ideas and simply a good party as well supporting & promoting Ponderosa festival, our godmother from the countryside.
Currently, Poodle Bar appears irregularly but as the winter nights are getting longer one can expect a secret basement party, alright. Poodle Bar is a concept that is up for grabs, too. Poodle Bar is there if you need it, when you need it and how you need it, as mostly it is a permission to just make things happen, quick & dirty Berlin kind of way. You wanna manifest something - take it and do it.
If you are interested to show what you are busy with at the next event or wish to offer a space for a pop-up, please write your proposals to: [email protected]
