Once upon a time, there was a club in a little hut by the banks of the river Spree called Bar 25. The merry band of men and women who built the hut lived there for a long time, invited all of their friends and had lots of fun. But one day, the Big Bad Officials from the city came and blew the hut down. The merry band had nowhere to live and started looking far and wide for a new home where they could invite all of their friends over to come and play.
One half of the merry band crossed the river Spree and built a new, even bigger hut and playground and called it Kater Holzig. The other half waited a while to see what would happen. Finally, they crossed the river too and started turning an old beer garden into their new home and playground. After lots of sawing, plastering, gutting, crashing and bashing, Berlin’s newest club is now ready to open its doors. Tonight, the 6th of July, all of Berlin will be heading down the Schlesische Straße to see what they can see. What they will see is Chalet: three stories high, an old brick customs house right by the former border between east and west. The house is beautiful, with lots of colourful lights, 1920s style decor inside and a wonderful beer garden. The finest DJs of the land will come to play night and day at Chalet, and the finest people of Berlin will come to dance. Forever and ever and ever. And all of Berlin will live happily ever after.
