Claiming to be able to describe all that Berlin offers in terms of nightlife would be a big fat lie. The city offers an amazing number of LGBT+ venues (larger than possibly any other city in the world), a brilliant kaleidoscope of events and queer spaces that truly caters for every possible taste and variation. If in 1920s Berlin was a beacon of tolerance in a bigoted world, today the city represents an example of eccentricity, not-so-subtle anarchy and splendid variety in a world often very bland and stereotyped.
