Who we are:
Berliner Späti e.V. has been the sole advocacy group for owners and operators of late night sales outlets in the capital Berlin since 2016. We advocate the concerns of the Spätis in politics, associations and the public. There are just over 1,000 Spätis in Berlin. Almost all of them are run by families – and in almost all of them the family lives from this business. Some Späti owners know and help each other. But with many problems and topics you need a strong and loud voice in order to be heard. When in 2016 the Sunday opening of Spätis, which had been tolerated until then, was more and more controlled and sanctioned and almost all Spätis had to close on Sundays, the time had come: Some owners – mainly from Berlin-Neukölln – merged to form Berliner Späti e.V. well over 100 members from all districts of Berlin. And we want to grow. Because the more we are, the louder our voice is.
