Melitta Sundström

Queer-run café and bar on Mehringdamm

Average Reviews


Looking for a hangout with a bit of history and a whole lotta character? Melitta Sundström in Kreuzberg is a Berlin institution, named after a local gospel-singing, activist, and trans icon. This cafe-bar isn't your flashy new spot, but that's kinda the point.

Step inside for a dose of faded romantic charm – think high ceilings, mismatched furniture, and a vibe that whispers "creative haven" rather than "chilled dance floor." Magazines pile up like forgotten friends, board games are scattered around for impromptu challenges, and the weekend-only upstairs lounge adds a touch of hidden gem mystery.

The crowd leans LGBTQ+, with a healthy mix of locals and those in the know. It's not just about drinks (although their cake selection is legendary) – Melitta Sundström regularly throws art exhibitions, cabaret nights, and comedy shows. So grab a drink, mingle with the friendly crew, and soak up the atmosphere – this is Berlin's LGBTQ+ scene with a generous helping of history and heart.

Would be amazing place if in December the heating would be ON.Unfortunately you can't sit inside without a thick jacket and a hat.

Apparently a queer bar, loved the vibes the staff , the people in there. Felt very respected and welcomed from all the sides. Didn't know about the place before hand, was a blind shot and couldn't be happier.

Okay bar for the week days when it's empty. A "no-thanks" on the weekends. We went there (tbh, because it was the only place with free tables on a Saturday night), were sat by a very welcoming waiter, waited 30 minutes for two tap beers and left before they were on our table. There were three people working at the bar, chatting and having a lot of fun, doing one cocktail all together with clearly no rush, checking the three of them what music to play next, etc. Then I understood why there were tables free.I am not coming back and I recommend you to do the same.

After a great time at Lollapalooza, we didn't want the party to end and walked around randomly until we found a bar that could deal with our group of 25+...
