Our photographer has put together a little photo series where you can see how it looked like at Lankwitzer Str. 42 before we began constructing the new Quälgeist. And what we made of it until now:
The entrance, Still original: the handrails.

The new bar area is nearly finished, today we did last works on the seating elements.
One thing that was annoying for some visitors at the old venue was the fact, that there was no strict separation of smoking and non-smoking areas. Therefore we decided, that smoking will be probibited at the bar during public events in the new Quälgeist and built a separate „smoker‘s lounge“ above the bar for you! With glass wall, of course, so you will not miss out anything that happens beneath.
We’re moving forward at the new QG. The bar has been built up and is nearly ready to use. So at least there will be drinks available at our opening party on 24th of March 2018.
Almost all of our stuff at Mehringdamm has been dismantled and put into moving boxes. We’re prepared to move come February!
We currently dismantle our old venue and tuck away all our goods and chattels.
In the last few weeks our busy members have prepared and cleared out the new rooms. Therefore we already were able to lay out a new floor.
We’re more than in schedule, which means that our final relocation can take place in February.
We will keep you up to date – here as well as in the social networks.
