Gruenspan Club legend for everyone

© T. Schreiber

Between high red walls and stucco columns, this club has been rocking since 1968: The Gruenspan in the street Große Freiheit in Hamburg.

Initially notorious as a drug den where the audience lay around lazily and sheepishly on mattresses and listened to psychedelic sounds from the turntable, in the late 1980s Gruenspan experienced  a comeback as a fashionable house club.

The "Span", as it used to be known, made another comeback in the 2000s as a great live music venue. Today it is popular with lovers of alternative rock, including some metal styles, as well as hip-hop heads, soul, reggae and pop fans.
