‘Anything goes’ at this famous cruise club in the basement of an old East Berlin power station (which also houses the popular dance club Berghain and Panorama Bar). The men play hard.

The industrial setting gives “The Lab” the right atmosphere to cruise and play with cages, slings, glory holes, dark rooms, alcoves, private cabins. Showers and hand basins are provided, along with paper towels, free condoms and lube.

Change into your outfit on arrival (leather, sportswear, jockstrap, rubber, etc.). You will be given a bag for your other items. Check in your bag and a number will be written on your shoulder. This number is used to bill drinks at the bar.

Some themed nights have dress codes. Happy hour on Friday nights. Check the website for upcoming events – they’re usually sold out, so plan ahead.

    “ok, here is my 1st time to this place on friday night.

    -location: if you follow google map, it will lead you to a huge metro sign, (not metro station) don't get into that area, use the alley next to it on the left , keep walk straight and the end of walk way is a old building. turn left.

    -door man: have no problem with him. actually, he look rather in a good mood. a friend said they change the rude door man long time ago, not sure if that s the case.

    For me, this place is a bit too much. many hot guys, yes. But that make it worst. it's like you are stimulate to cruise all the time, non-stop. by 1.30 am (i come at 22.30). To be honest, i prefer a sauna where one day might be only 1-2 hot people that i like, then you can keep your focus on those 2 and try to get them. But here is a bit too much, really.

    People have fun everywhere. Sometime they don't mind if you join. Some case they push your hand away. So it's not like everyone will get everyone there. There is also a picky guy. But all in all, most people are friendly.

    The place is not that big like i imagine, it's big but not that big. the floor become somewhat dirty when the night go, but it's not as unacceptable.

    The bar staff are super friendly

    When you leave, get ur cloth first, dress up, then head back inside to the bar to pay the bill. bring the bill to door man to get out.“

  2. Nothing Else Like It

    “Went for the first time on a Friday. It was 2 for 1 dance night. No dress code. There was a line at the door but I didn’t see the rude scrutiny by the doormen mentioned in some other posts. Upon entering I was given a bag for my belongings and got a wristband with a number on it. That number is used at the bar and upon exiting to retrieve your belongings.

    I arrived just before midnight and the club was filled with hundreds of men. I would guess most were in their mid twenties to mid forties and quite a few who were in their 50’s and older. Most in decent shape. Some were naked many were shirtless at a minimum and a lot with jock straps. A few in full street clothes. I read all the reviews and thought I had a sense of what the scene would be. Boy was I wrong. It’s hard to put into words the scale of activity going on in this place and the number of hot men. The club was much larger than I could have imagined. It was a cavernous warehouse type space with all kinds of nooks and dark rooms, spaces upstairs, slings, empty rail cars, etc. all kinds of action going on in every corner of the place and outside on the patio. I have never experienced anything like it. I am willing to wager there is no other place like it in the world. Not on this scale.

    It’s true what others have said. This place isn’t for everyone. If you are shy or have any hang ups about raw uninhibited fetish fun happening all over this isn’t for you. If you don’t like guys grabbing you as you walk by go elsewhere. It’s sweaty. It gets messy. There will be condoms and lots of lube and other fluids all over the floor. You will see guys washing their cocks and asses out in the bathroom sinks after sex. It ain’t for the faint of heart. If you’re ok with all that the place is fucking awesome and you should go and experience it for yourself. No doubt I will be back during my next visit to Berlin. It was best fetish club experience of my life. Full stop.“
