Hamburg’s Golden Pudel has been saved from developers


Following fire and threats the infamous Hamburg nightclub will return to its original location

You might remember the ongoing debacle surrounding Hamburg’s Golden Pudel nightclub from last year. Just a quick recap: the club came under threat from developers, was subsequently partially burned down and has now risen from the ashes to open once more in its original location.

The club announced the news on their website today. Read the statement in full below and we’ll keep you updated as we find out more.

Filled with tremendous joy and with a delirously beating heart, the Golden Pudel Club can declare the following news:

The piece of this earth that is intertwined with us, namely St. Pauli Fischmarkt No. 27, has been snatched away from the burning claws of the forced auction that has been threatening us for a long while.

Together with the Mara & Holger Cassens foundation, Wolf Richter’s shares in the property have been acquired. The property can now be used for public cultural benefit.

Consequently, the Club is now protected from the adversities of the capital market and can once again and continiously be used for counter-cultural experiments and the developing of our social idea.
Happily, loudly, and forever!

This is our house!

A gigantic thank you to all of the supporters for their solidarity—you have not only warmed our hearts but you were all of actual help.

Yours truly,
Golden Pudel Club, Park Fiction und Pudel Verein für Gegenkultur e.V. (VerFüGe) — festlich.
