Berlin’s coolest clubs have some of the most exclusive door policies in the world. While it may sometimes seem unfair, control is in place to ensure that the club stays safe. For many clubs, this means keeping tourists and casuals out of their hallowed halls. So what should tourist do? Airbnb comes out with a solution.

The controversial tech company will soon roll out its Airbnb “experiences” service in Berlin. Nathan Blecharczyk, cofounder and chief technology officer of Airbnb, said on Friday that Berliners will be able to take tourists and curious locals on a paid experience from May, adding that an experience could include going out for drinks.

“We’re really repositioning Airbnb as a platform for the entire trip,” he told an audience of entrepreneurs and tech workers at the Factory tech hub in Berlin, adding that Airbnb is also looking at offering flights and other travel services through its app.

Commenting on what kind of experiences Berlin entrepreneurs could offer, Blecharczyk said: “You can have an experience around being an entrepreneur in Berlin. Take them here [to Factory]. Maybe take them to see some of the local startups and then out for drinks. That could be an experience. That could be a way to network with entrepreneurs around the world.”

This allows hosts to offer additional perks besides lodging, such as “going out for drinks” or guestlist-enabled personal tours of the city’s most exclusive techno clubs.
