Ritter Butzke is located on the ground floor of a former factory in Kreuzberg. It began as an illegal club in 2007, but went official two years later. The venue has three main dance floors, plus an outdoor courtyard that's open in the summer. The DJs and the crowd are most often Berliners—overall Ritter Butzke has more of a local focus than the likes of Watergate, Berghain, Club der Visionaere, etc. The club has a big cast of residents and regulars that has included Jens Bond, Mary Jane, Aroma and David Dorad.
