Berghain is possibly Berlin's best known club, and as such has one of the most strict door policies in the city.
The club is set in an old power plant in Friedrichshain that has been renovated extensively.
Although by no means an exclusive gay club, the gay scene definitely has somewhat of a second home in Berghain.
The club is split into two quite separate areas - the Panoramabar on the second floor, and Berghain itself on the lower level. Top DJs often play up top, whereas the lower floor is full of dark rooms and tends to be more of the gay scene with techno/electro music.
Although the reputation of the bar is high, drink prices here are still reasonable and only a little more than the Berlin average.
Be aware that cameras are not allowed into the club, and you will be checked for them at the door.
Turn up early if you don't want to have to wait in the queue just to find out that you can't get in. That said, everything happens late at the club, so turning up early just means before midnight. There are still often queues outside at 8am on a Sunday morning.
