Like others pointed out before me, this place only pretends to be liberal with its policies - in fact, upon leaving, they not only mock and make fun of people in front of other customers who are drinking at the bar, but I personally felt threatened by the aggressiveness and violence of the staff. And it is NOT because I was not willing to pay enough (although their wine is absolutely disgusting), but already when I was going up to the counter, the bartender seemed to single me out and started shouting at me (it turns out, later he was mocking my friends too, but I was so confused and embarrassed that I could barely pay attention).
Even before that, while drinking our wine, I did not feel like there was a relaxed atmosphere at all, it was more a general feeling of frenzy and competition, especially when they brought out the food. Also, it got extremely hot inside, we were practically all sweating.
The concept is nice in theory, but in practice it was like a nightmare. There are many more charming, relaxed and people-friendly places in Berlin, so I'd look for those instead of this one.
(I used to live just around the corner for a year in 2006-7, and it used to be a much better place. Shame that this has become of it..)
