I made a trip to Berlin and was really wanting to visit this bar which seemed a monument of Berlin night life. Unfortunately I was not allowed to enter, the very young and Aryan doorman seemed to think I was not good enough for the place, no explanation at all of course. But I know it is because I am... 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

Tom's has all the dark room action you could want but has the unfortunate problem of a number of remarkably nasty bartenders-they will rip you off on drinks, two-for-one specials, and will clearly discriminate against anyone they don't like-especially Americans, no matter how friendly the customer is, even if they speak German. 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.
