More than just a bar

Average Reviews


Hafen Berlin, located in Schöneberg, is a must-visit spot for anyone looking to experience the city’s LGBTQ+ nightlife. This iconic gay bar, established in the early '90s, offers a welcoming and casual atmosphere that's perfect for both locals and tourists.

Situated on Motzstraße near Nollendorfplatz, Hafen is easily accessible and right in the heart of Berlin's gay district. The bar is renowned for its friendly staff and vibrant ambiance, making it a great place to relax and meet new people. Regular events, including karaoke and themed parties, ensure there's always something fun happening​​.

Hafen's historical significance adds to its charm, with rumors that the real-life Sally Bowles once visited this spot, adding a touch of old-world glamour to its modern appeal. The outdoor seating is particularly popular during warm nights, creating a lively and social environment.

For a genuine taste of Berlin’s queer culture, Hafen is the place to be. It’s not just a bar; it’s a beloved institution that captures the spirit of the city’s LGBTQ+ community.

Nice bar with friendly staff behind the bar wh9 mix some decent drinks. It's a mixed crowd here with friendly vibes. The toilets though, the stench of urine and ammonia is overpowering and completely put me off going back.

Nice enough place but very busy and not many places to sit. Also the WiFi didn’t work presumably because everyone was on it, once you walk in the phone loses signal. I left because I couldn’t communicate with no signal 🙁 otherwise a nice place.

Very nice bar, chill and relaxing. I'm here on Sunday. It's not busy, but I feel more comfortable.

Cute and fun little place. Bartenders had good energy and made you feel welcome (not always something I have found when traveling).

Hafen is a lovely dance bar located in the gay district. The bar is not huge, but there is enough space to move around. It offers great drinks and a good vibe. Sometimes, the music could be a bit loud, but it is good for dancing. There is a smoking room at the back if someone needs it.
