One journalist said he would have written this:
I definitely see the need to explain that PLATOON Kunsthalle is a bar/club but that's the only thing about the correction that I like. I'm not a big fan of using the word "crammed" since the place was crowded but not really crammed.

If I were to rewrite the article, I might try this:
