The techno boar on the Deutzer dock­yard

In 1991, the Warehouse opened in Cologne, for techno fans one of the hippest and most prominent clubs in Germany at that time. Offshoot was the current Bootshaus at the Deutzer shipyard. The club gained notoriety at the beginning by his "Loonyland" party series, which was organized by Ulrich Rauschenberger (U-Lee). Three floors and a charming outdoor area make up the club. The main floor offers space for over 1000 guests, the BLCKBX has a charismatic ceiling made out of fans. Since March 2016, the Bootshaus also houses the cult head of US artist Elmer Presslee, who built it in 2010 for the art exhibition ART.FAIR. Mainly DJs from the field of electro, house and trap are booked. In the Bootshaus David Guetta, Avicii, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Felix Jaehn, Hardwell, Skrillex and Tiesto played for example. But also trance, goa and hardstyle are part of the bookings. This is also perceived internationally. In the prestigious "DJ Magazine" the Bootshaus was voted in 2017 as the 15th best club in the world.
