We’ve sorted Berlin’s gay bars by area:

Schöneberg – Blond, Prinzknecht, HAFEN, Redgold1, Pinocchio, Toyboy Bar, Heile Welt, TABASCO, Dreizehn, Blue Boy Bar, Tramp’s, K6
Kreuzberg / Friedrichshain – BarbieBar, CLUB, Möbel-Olfe, Silver Future, Rauschgold, Roses
Prenzlauer Berg / Berlin Mitte – Bärenhöhle, Betty F*** Bar, FLAX, The Coven, Marienhof, Bar Saint Jean, PERLE

Located in the heart of Schöneberg’s gay district, HAFEN remains a trendy and popular gay landmark with regular events, parties and quiz shows.

Casual atmosphere and cool staff are among its selling points. The bar gets extra cult status for allegedly being visited by the real life Sally Bowles back in those days of cabaret.

Gay café bar & lounge, located right next to the Nollendorfplatz train station. Popular with both locals and tourists.

This is one of the classier gay bars in Berlin – doesn’t have to be whips and chains every night. Heile Welt is a good place to go on a date. Also great for pre-clubbing. You’ll be able to hear your conversation over the music.

Today:  Happy Hour 2pm-5pm

A cosy alternative to the loud gay bars in Berlin. We like the relaxed, warm atmosphere of Dreizehn (13).

This pub-style gay bar has plenty of beer, wine, spirits and more on offer. Old-fashioned in style, it does tend to attract a more mature guys. Happy hour 2pm-5pm, Monday to Friday only.
