It’s Wednesday night. You want to go out to meet people but you don’t enjoy bars. You stopped smoking and can’t stand the smell anymore, you’re in the middle of a tough workout program, you don’t like the taste of alcohol and you have to work tomorrow. Where do you go?
You stay at home! What a pitty!
We strive for a better nightlife. A healthy lifestyle will no longer exclude partying per se. Our guests will be able to combine their busy lives with ecstatic after-work events. We will be at the base of the latest trends while letting our guests experience the newest innovation in drink & food.
We believe in the power of natural highs. This sounds funky but let us explain: The essence of a great event is its social energy. During our long experience in organizing raves for Berlin’s underground scene (which were sometimes quite consumption-intense), we realized that the freshest, most energetic and most socially active guests were always sober. This is exactly the spirit that we aim for on Sober Sensation events.
State-of-the-art event techniques will ensure a unique five-sense experience for our guests. Therefore we gathered a team of the best scent-artists, DJs, dancers and artists around us who know how to stir up the crowd. Action areas will get the guests involved with trendsports like yoga, zumba and more, giving them the possibility and space to connect.
What’s to serve on an event without alcohol? Sure, we cut out one element of traditional bartending. But that doesn’t mean we’re not offering our guests a vast variety of high quality drinks.
Next to non-alcoholic beer and smoothies our bar will serve local nitro-coffee and kombucha along with the newest independent drinks and hippest lemonades. We want to give young and innovative beverage brands a platform on which they can reach out to the heart of Berlin’s creative scene. Why? Because they’re cool.
Party takes off when the music starts. Rolling beats touch something buried deep inside us, back from the days when we were beating drums and dancing around a campfire in a dark cave, connecting to something greater.
Music will be in the center of our events while all other sensations will be carefully architectured around it. We will not settle on one specific genre but rather take our guests on a journey through the world of sound. We will give the most skilled underground DJs and live acts a stage to transport their craft to the people while only using the best hardware on the market.

This experience with acoustic Instruments inspire the young Berliner in his own music.

Emma is our new Team member and responsible for PR and eventmanagement. She also grew up in Frankfurt and started early to work as a professional manager in Frankfurt’s night scene. Emma studied media in Hamburg and wants to live her passion in Berlin, hosting and organizing parties. Playing in the german national hockey team helped her develop skills, such as discipline and time management. It was always hard to balance the rigor of sport with the demands of working at night. „But anyway, being an allrounder is the most exciting thing.“
Oliver is a sober expert with experience. Growing up in the 80s, alternative music with all of its facets greatly influenced him although he studied business. Today, musically, he feels much more at home with singers and song writers. The past few years, Oliver has nurtured a sober lifestyle as he no longer wants to miss out. Today, as a sober ambassador, Oliver supports people, who want to climb out of the alcohol and drug mire. „With SoberSensation and his sobriety, I feel good and understood. In this state, I can celebrate with great people, who also live a dry lifestyle or at least want to try.“
Steffen lives for loving. „No, I'm no hippie“. He doesn't want to sound soppy, but he thinks love is the one thing we often miss the most. Viewed from the right perspective, benefit lies in abdication. Appreciating his health, nature, people in the developing world and animals he abstains from the consumption of any animalistic products. Five years ago, Steffen couldn't even imagine anything like this. For 4 years now he has been practising this lifestyle as a labour of love and realized it as a profit. Sober doesn't only mean to party without alcohol, but above all it means the things you get instead. Our mainspring is love and we sustainably want to make the world a bit better!
Simone works as osteopath and has experienced a lot with people in her job. Our body is the temple of our soul and this is just why we should treat it carefully. Everybody has already felt the hangover after having partied restlessly for three days. Unfortunately this doesn't feel healthy, quite the contrary. There is no one who hasn't felt this horrible feelings once in their lives. That's just why Simone supports the concept of this party. You can live it up, follow the thythms of the music happily and the next day will nevertheless start without hangover. Celebrating simply makes you happy and having your friends around is even perfect. Since Simone's move to Berlin she's been celebrating sober. Thus she's experienced the nightlife more intensively and now she stays on longer than before. Simone has been partying sober since the very first hour of Sober Sensation. Become a part of us and give you a chance for testing it how you can dance till ectasy without any booze. I can just recommend it to everybody.
„Sober Sensation is brilliant in all aspects. The name, the idea and the execution are exceptional and something that has been missing in Germany.“
Kristina Sperkova, President of IOGT International
