Pussycat

 
What do you think of this place? Love it or not?
Drinking and purring
Dark and intimate bar first opened in 1974 but which has been the domain of top cat Daniela since 1999, with smoking and Schlager giving you a good idea of the local feel. This formerly lesbian lair now attracts a somewhat mixed but mostly gay male clientele. Olaf Hartmannsgruber's monthly Berlin cigar social (Berlin Cigar Men) started here in May 2017 [see entry], giving the Pussycat a leather boost. Meets first Friday of the month. The cigar fetishists tend to colonise the rear, which is the more atmospherically lit of the two adjoining bar spaces. And starting with Folsom Europer in September 2018, BLUF shifted its traditional Friday evening Prinzknecht event to Pussycat, to seismic effect. This rather overlooked bar is something of a precious little gem within the gay ghetto vortex around the Motzstraße, Eisenacher Straße and the Fuggerstraße. Look for the smiling pussycat that decorates the front and a doorbell which gives an air of mystery. Perfect for a stopover between, say, Prinzknecht and New Action. Located just opposite GEAR Berlin. Yes, smoking allowed. U-Bahn:Nollendorfplatz.
