In the 1920s there weren’t many places where LGBTQ+ folk could expect to live openly and proudly without fear of oppression, but the Berlin of the Weimar Republic was one such place. Though the city’s radically queer character was dampened as the 20th century wore on, the late 90s and early 2000s saw a revitalization of a legendary nightlife scene that is only getting bigger.
The population of Schöneberg is largely LGBTQ+ so it makes sense that the district would also serve as the unofficial capital of queer culture in Berlin. The streets of Schöneberg are lined with exclusive restaurants, high-end shops, and upscale cafes, making it a delightful place to spend a lazy afternoon.
Whilst Berlin is home to a plethora of gay nightlife venues, including chilled upmarket lounges, the city is best known for its edgier clubbing experiences. Located on the ground floor of the iconic Berghain nightclub, LAB.ORATORY is a must-visit for fetishists and fans of rubber, leather, and sportswear. This scene-leading space has a reputation for wild-themed nights and a permissive attitude towards NSFW fun.
