The SO36 is an icon­ic punk and alter­na­tive music venue, often likened to New York’s famed “CBGB”. The club takes its name from the area’s post­code – SO stands for Südost (‘South East’). Since the late 1970s, it’s been a cul­tur­al hub, host­ing con­certs, par­ties, and events, shap­ing Berlin’s vibrant under­ground scene.

SO36 was a reg­u­lar haunt for Bowie and Iggy Pop dur­ing their time in Berlin, where the two icon­ic musi­cians explored Berlin’s alter­na­tive music scene.
