This hip, subterranean night-spot in Mitte, now in shiny new premises on Neue Promenade, is a low-lit and seriously atmospheric space, decked out with an abundance of weathered, reclaimed wood, old panelling, comfy leather sofas, big blocky shelves like Jenga bricks on which bottles sit, and diagonal slashes of fluorescent strip lighting. Though, strictly speaking this is more of a bar than a club, there’s a definite club-like feel to the place, with its live music and regular DJ sessions. It gets pretty packed and people do start to move as the night wears on. Drinkers have a choice of gin or vodka served in single measures or larger jars with optional tonic. What it lacks in space it makes up for in intimacy; the place has a cool, bohemian, nigh on hedonistic vibe, what with all those pretty bodies pressed together, the music pulsing in the background is that a bed in the corner? Why, yes it is. It’s that kind of place. The venue might be new but all the elements that made the old Trust so popular with a certain set remain present and correct.
