'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. Lab-oratory is probably the most famous and notorious gay cruise club in the world.

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.
