SO36 has a long and illustrious history to look back on in gay Berlin (it took its name from a now defunct postcode), with its legendary Electric Ballroom Mondays, giving gay Muslims a place to express themselves with HomoOriental Dancefloor nights, drunken roller disco, tranny karaoke, bad taste parties, late-night flea markets and the slightly tamer offering of ball-counting bingo.

Punk has been the leitmotif here since the owners set up shop by squatting in an abandoned building but, with less to fight and shout for these days, SO36 now settles for a less discriminatory approach to its clientele and a roster of varied and anarchic events – like the Sunday Tea Dance, Cafe Fatal. Rock on.
