If all other pubs are closed, one will still be open: the Bull. But please don’t drop by just because you want to have a beer at the comfy counter. Because if you eventually need to go to the toilet, you will have to pass through a huge darkroom where there is a lot of action going on, especially deep in the night and early in the morning.
Indeed: the Bull is an icon in Berlin gay life, the last stop for many party tigers. Yes, there are plenty of people that don’t go any further than the bar area. But for lovers of a fetish there is always something to be found in the Bull, or otherwise in the New Action bar around the corner, that apparently has a much tighter door policy (you only get in with leather, latex or rubber).
