ARCANOA - since 8.8.1988 the bar with the river in the bar

For more than 10 years, the legendary Arcanoa was THE cult original bar in Berlin-Kreuzberg, where free art celebrated wild-sounding festivals.

The uniquely designed rooms formed a dreamlike setting for concerts, performances, readings, film screenings, parties and the well-known medieval festivals.

Not far from the old ARCANOA, the new ARCANOA opened at the Tempelhofer Berg. Parts of the old equipment reappear in new surroundings, such as the fascinating bar counter with the river in it and the iron constructions.

ARCANOA - seit 8.8.1988 die Bar mit dem Fluß im Tresen

Das legendäre Arcanoa war über 10 Jahre lang DIE Kult-Ur-Bar in Berlin-Kreuzberg, wo die freie Kunst wildrauschende Feste feierte.

Die einzigartig gestalteten Räume bildeten eine traumwandlerische Kulisse für Konzerte, Performances, Lesungen, Filmvorführungen, Parties und die bekannten Mittelalter-Feste.

Unweit des alten ARCANOA eröffnete am Tempelhofer Berg das neue ARCANOA. Teile der alten Einrichtung erstehen in neuer Umgebung wieder, wie z.B. die faszinierende Bartheke mit dem Fluss drin und die Eisenkonstruktionen.
