Grosse Freiheit

Part pub, part darkroom, this Friedrichshain institution is decked out in nautical kitsch, has a great jukebox and is favored by an older, cruisier clientele. Even if you just want to use the bathroom here, be prepared to fight off the overspill from the parallel dark area. By 3 am the toilets have become an honorary section of the dark room with better lighting. It’s a fun and laidback way to combine drinks with friends and getting your dick drained.
