The Motzstrasse was the epicentre of the West Berlin gay scene during the days of the Cold War. That role has been taken over by the eastern parts of town, where the most reknown clubs are.
But the Motzstrasse still hosts a lot of (sex) bars. Beyond classics such as Toms Bar and Scheune, the Reizbar has also become popular. In the area near the front, where the bar and couches are, the atmosphere is comfy and relaxed. In the rear part it becomes darker and shadier, the place where many men have anonymous sex.
