He is considered the toughest bouncer in the world. Now the Berghain's icon Sven Marquardt has experienced how it feels to fail at the club door and be denied entry according to bz-berlin. The incident happened a while ago in 2018
The famous Berlin photographer Marquardt had a show at the Goethe-Institut in Sydney when he chose to go to a club. The information says that this happened because of a face tattoo! Mr Berghain Sven Marquardt was unable to access the club after being denied entry.
In Sydney, he was not allowed in because of his martial facial tattoos.
"Later I talked to the owner and he told me that he was in Berlin and did not come to the Berghain", Marquardt revealed at the Artist Talk with Sebastian Preuss in the Galerie Deschler. The award-winning photographer was at Australia for his exhibition and his latest project.
Club owner later apologized to Sven, and noticed that he was additionally denied passage in Berghain when he was in Berlin.

Sven Marquardt (Berghain Bouncer) was denied entry in a club in Australia this weekend. Justice has been served I guess.
Probably did him a favour. Sydney nightlife is a joke.
Solution: Deny entry to everyone.
went to berghain and tresor back to back weekends and I got to say that I appreciate this guy's job more now. Sure, it sucks to queue up for 2 hours and not get in but once you are in there's a world of difference to other clubs in Berlin.
