‘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.

  1. Great Experience

    “I visited the Lab twice while in Berlin in June, 2018. The first time it was a "2 for 1" night on Thursday. Tons of horny guys and a lot to choose from. Had a couple of drinks and was enjoying hot guys until about 5am. Lots of action. Different ages and sizes, but a good number of young and fit guys. Lots of places to play. By the end of the night it got quite stuffy, smelly and messy. But what do you expect when hundreds of guys play all night? The Friday night turned out to be less busy, but still lots of fun. The barmen were nice, drinks were reasonably priced. The doormen were quite neutral, I'd even say, indifferent to me. I personally had a great group experience and would recommend this place. I will be back when in Berlin next time.“

  2. Brilliant!

    “I forgot to review earlier... I was here in August on the Naked Thursday night. I had only ever been to one other 'cruise club' before and it was underwear night. I read A LOT online about this place before going and was paranoid about the infamous 'no entry' policy but I didn't see anybody get turned away. Literally almost every person inside was worthy of an encounter - not being rude but everyone has a preference and this place had it! Hundreds of naked men! I bought 2 drinks immediately on entry, finished one quickly and had a look around.

    Within about 3mins, I noticed a lot of action in the big dark area. There are LOADSSS of spaces here, up stairs, down stairs, fetish, big area outside in the old freight containers. I would highlyyyy recommend this place. I'd be a regular if I lived in Berlin!“

  3. New Year Party 2018/2019

    “I love the place and club - where sex is in the air and huge action goes and goes on around. Is there any information about New Year party this year? Is something going on in Lab? There are not any information in dates schedule - it finishes on Dec. 30th. I wonder if anyone knows anything about that and how it was in past years.

    About a doorman - in fact door men is not a "pretty boy", but I think he has to be like that to keep the order. I saw some people drunk of "after drugs" tried to entry the club, and the doormen's role is not to let them in.“

  4. Bad doorman

    “Yes, the doorman's ride & arrogant. Told me not to touch the door (?) or him for some unknown reason. Put me off the club entirely. Other people have said the same thing to me about him before. Get rid of him!“

  5. Arrogant doorman

    “Past reports are true, the doorman is rude, arrogant & has no idea how to interact with people. He truly is a pig of a man. He has the potential to ruin the impression of the club. The other staff are friendly & the club is ok but vastly overrated. The doorman needs to go, he's bad for business.“

  6. Amazing Unique Gay Experience Like No Other

    “OK - as someone who has seen quite a few sex clubs in the world, I can confidently say that Laboratory is in its own category. The size of the venue, the number of men (dressed in little or nothing), the anything-goes atmosphere, the high energy and dance music pulsing...its just a unique experience.

    I would consider it a must-see gay tourist attraction for anyone visiting Berlin who is OK with lots and lots of public action. Really like nothing else out there and must be experienced.“

  7. Top location

    “Really guys, When you are into fetish and hardplay, then this one should be on your list!
    Yesterday was Gummi night (9th sept , Folsom), Great and lots of horny guys. Fisting, Fucking, and so on, make sure you wear the right gear (strict policy) and guys... make an effort , wearing quality gear like rubber and other is not a cheap singlet with a jock. You want action? Make sure you are dressed sexy! Top top top!“

  8. Amazing sex extravaganza

    “I'd guess over 500 hot sweaty naked men doing everything possible. I certainly got my "fill". Do it at least once in your life.“

  9. Hate it or love it but certainly can't avoid it if you're in Berlin.

    “I just love this place for its multi-dimensions. The range in terms of ethnicity, age, body type, size are truly wide & wild. Everyone is allowed in this club but don't wear any perfumes. Some people may confuse this club with its neighbour Berghain (which has a strict door entry policy), but this club is totally separate one with separate entrance.
    I visited this club on Friday (Very crowded 2 for 1 event) and on Saturday (Less crowded fisting event).

    The doorman and the receptionist is friendly and welcoming. They only accept cash and not any credit card. Some may complain that the place is dirty, smelly. Yes, they are all true, but that is also true that you're not going to live your life in that club. So for a wild experience, one should visit this club.“

  10. rude and fascism

    “Went there on a Thursday night. No one was at the door. Saw a ring bell without any clear instruction so pressed it for the first time, but there was no response, I tried to open the door and found it was closed. Then pressed the bell for the second time. After that, the doorman come out and pushed me on my shoulder and said stop touching the door it’s not your backyard.

    Then he started his stupid selective interview with the question “what r u looking for here” I said “some fun”. He pointed the other way and told me there was a lot of fun and go away. Yes I am a Asian tourist and I am totally okay with being rejected for not being a fit for the vibe of the venue, but this fascism and disgrace is far beyond my imagination.“

  11. LOVE IT!!!

    “Went there on a naked theme night, a big crowd with people in all shapes and colors. What I loved most was one of the bar tenders with a hat, he was so cute and friendly, I would very much love to meet him again! Well, as for the party, it was crazily fun, people were so into it, the entire atmosphere was very tempting. Totally worth it!!!“
