Typical late night club, crowded dance floor, and mixed age crowd. The bartenders do an excellent job of keeping up, and the security people walk the entire place to ensure no problems. bathroom lines are long, but that's a norm any night club. Definitely a place to go, although nothing special but a nice place.

Very weird crowd and terrible bat service. The bar staff doesn't listen to you at all took me 3 times to repeat a captain sprite. Also place is cash only. What place these days doesn't accept a credit card. Would strongly discourage going to this place. Don't mind dive bars but this is a bad one

Right off the Red line, Berlin is a true gay club. Went there on a Saturday night and it was packed! So much fun! There are two bars, a small photo booth, and plenty of small stages that anyone can dance on! Worth the visit!

I always heard this place was a lot of fun. I went there and had a great time. $5 to get in and heads up CASH BAR ONLY! Everyone was super friendly and no one judged. Go in with an open mind to have fun and you will. Main reason for going was to dance the night away, which I... More

I wanted to visit Berlin during Pride 2011 visit to Chicago. It sounded like a fun place and I was drawn by the promise of alternative dance music. While the music was good, the people in the bar weren't that great. It appeared to be a mix of stuck up people and ugly stuck up people. The only people that... More
