LAB.ORATORY
(World)Famous sex club. Wide range of ages. Moderate prices. Changing theme parties (Nacked Party, Yellow Facts, Fisthouse, Rubber, Sneakerbox, etc.). Attention should be paid to appropriate evening dress. I recommend this club to anyone who wants to test their erotic limits. You should know what you are getting into. Just keep your mind open and leave the judgments or attitudes at the door! By the way, the “Lab” is located in the same building as Berghain.
