We queue for over an hour, get to the front and get turned away because we can't tell him the name of the DJ performing. What kind of rule is that? We tell him we've come from the UK for one night... more »

The Docks is a legendary venue, located in the heart of Hamburg's St. Pauli district. Stepping in, one can feel the spirit of this place, as it's soul is drenched with the spirit of Rock and Roll. I personally liked the venue, as it is primarily a standing venue, however it also allows for a "limited seating" option on the sides of the venue, which not only provides a comfortable seating area, but an elevated platform that is great for seeing above the many heads in the crowd. First come, first serve however applies. The sound levels were fantastic. Even with a packed venue, the sound is incredibly leveled and an audio treat for any fan. Kudos to the sound engineers and the overall sound system installed. The staff are friendly, and very accommodating, and a couple of bar counters are located at various points in the venue, making it very easy to quench your thirst. Security is also very cool and nice people. Overall, enjoyed the Docks Club and the experience it offers.
Everything is too perfect for party. Hall is big enough for 500+ people and the drinks are also cheap compared to other bars
