Lab-oratory (at Berghain) *

Quintessential space for the sexually adventurous
The ever popular and sweaty crotch of former East Berlin industrial power-station-turned-club-extraordinaire the Berghain [see entry], the Lab-oratory (aka the Lab) is an exquisitely detailed sex club and bar staging unhinged themed fetish nights catering to those turned on by rubber, leather, athletic gear, suit & tie, naked flesh and/or just about every bodily function going. Open Thursday to Saturday nights, plus Sunday afternoons, this male-only labyrinthine lair entertains a deserved and intense cult following, with heaving Fridays (no dress code, 2-4-1 drinks policy) now bordering on the mainstream. The doors shut to arrivals at 11pm on Thursday, at midnight on Friday and Saturday and at 6pm on Sunday, so plan accordingly. Rivals New York's Mineshaft (1976–85) and London's Cellar (1981–85) as all-time gay fetish sex space. S-Bahn: Ostbahnhof.
