About The Business: Urban Spree is a 1700 sqm artistic space in Berlin-Friedrichshain dedicated to urban cultures through exhibitions, DIY workshops, an art store and a large Biergarten.
Description: Urban Spree is a 1700 sqm artistic space in Berlin-Friedrichshain dedicated to urban cultures through exhibitions, artist residencies, DIY workshops, concerts, an art store and a large Biergarten.
Within Urban Spree, the Urban Spree Galerie is a 400 sqm independent contemporary art space. Set in a vast postindustrial compound in the heart of Berlin, the gallery promotes a grassroots artistic approach, working closely with street & graffiti artists, urban photographers and contemporary artists. The gallery curates independent art shows on a monthly basis, which most likely include the painting of the whole compound and its flagship “Artist Wall”, a 15 m x 8 m wall surface facing Warschauer Str. , one of the busiest arteries of Berlin, counting 100. 000 visitors /day. Artists who painted the wall in the past include Above, Klone, Zevs, Broken Fingaz Crew, Twoone, Low Bros, Nychos, 1UP Crew, The Grifters, Peachbeach, Rylsee, m-city and many more.
The Urban Spree Bookshop is located in the gallery and displays a hand-picked, organic selection of street art, graffiti and photography books whose common thread is a vision of cities, post-industrial & decayed spaces. The shop includes a large selection of screen prints made by local & international street artists that we personally know. The Print Shop also offers an array of locally-designed and produced screen printed T-Shirts. To accompany our rich selection of zines and self published books, we launched Urban Spree Books a few months ago as a new venture to promote self-publishing.
Artist Residencies are at the core of our artistic ecosystem. A mix of permanent, medium term and guest studios, the residencies irrigate by their creativity and artistic contributions what Urban Spree is about. Currently, our residents include Andrea Wan, Rylsee, Above, Itamar, Johannes Mundinger, Tine Fetz and the screen printing activities of Mother Drucker.
Numerous DIY workshops engage our guests in creative activities.
Urban Spree’s Concert Room is dedicated to live music with a high level programming and a large musical spectrum from garage, psych rock to cutting-edge electronic music. In addition, Urban Spree organizes the Urban Spree Summer Sessions, showcasing the best street musicians that Berlin has to offer every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening in the Biergarten.
Urban Spree is home to many festivals and events, such as the Pictoplasma Festival, Krake Festival, ComicInvasionBerlin, Amaze Festival, Druck Berlin Festival, Berlin Graphic Days, outdoor screenings, diner events and many more.
The Biergarten is the place where to chill in summer with its own selection of local and german craft beers, soft drinks, Bonanza Coffee Heroes‘ coffee selection, Paletas ice-creams… Two resident street food container units provide our guest with food around the clock.
Open daily except Mondays from 12: 00 (noon) to 03: 00.

Fantastic place with beer on tap and great atmosphere! Go there!
Best place in Berlin for art and music.
Best place around Friedrichshain. Just sit back and chill or enjoy electronic vibes. Indoor/outdoor, chill, garden, art.
Place with such a vivid atmosphere, must see when you are in Berlin. Mushroom gives a special touch to the meaning. 🍄
great vibe, cool staff, best promoters, simply amazing!

Nice to visit this most beautiful and artistic place.
Cool space, great atmosphere, just really sad that the bar staff were so rude and aggressive. It was super busy at the bar, so maybe they were stressed but it really affected my enjoyment of the night.
Great exhibition space and well stocked shop. Really enjoyed the outdoor space which was great when we visited as the sun was shining. Shame we missed the opening of the 1up show, we arrived a week to late. I'm sure it would have been amazing!
Andrea Barbara Viazzi
Free and inspiring. Great and genuine atmosphere, beautiful people, honestly, bar staff was very kind and friendly. I love this creative space and I can't wait to come back!
best urban space in town for me as a regular born berlin guy...
