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 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...More
