I have been visiting Berlin for 5 years now and have never had a problem getting in this bar and I am over 40 and not great looking, The staff have always been friendly and the drinks are reasonably priced. The dark room action is always good and there seems to be someone for all types. I will definitely be... More

Go anywhere in schoneberg area but Tom's. the worst bar in the gay area. Don't go for fun. The staff is not friendly not matter what you do. Berliners Are friendly, except for Tom's bar, schoneberg Berlin.

Very bad gay bar: this night (from 14 to 15 August 2013), it was supposedly, a very antipathetic and ugly doorman told me, a "private party", while the door was opened! This bar is really a crap. I have the intention to inform the LGBT associations of Berlin and, why not?, the police: I suppose there exists in Germany some... More

Don't these c u n t s know... More

Tom's Bar is a great place to start your night. It is a bit small and it played porn in the general area which made me feel a bit strange haha! Otherwise it was fine.

I had no issues entering this bar like others mentioned. I noticed a great variety of men in the bar from young guys to older. Staff members were friendly and drinks were reasonable.

Have been here a time or two a couple of years ago. This time my entrance was refused in a very rude and impolite way. I completely understand the other reviewers who have given one star to this place. One of the reviewers said that the owner has the right to select his customers and can let in or expel... More

Avoid. Staff is discriminating and impolite. Those who don't fit the customer profile will be treated very rudely. Don't spend any money into this place. They
