On all my previous visits to Berlin on the ‘Wild Hunt’ I would drink in my hotel bar right up until midnight or 1AM, and only then head out into the night towards Stuttgarter Platz. I think I was shy in those days and wanted to wait until the streets were as clear as possible. On this trip I could not wait to get out and get the night started and over with! I was champing at the bit looking at my watch, 4PM, 5PM is it too early to start drinking in the hotel bar yet bearing in mind none of the places I wanted to go to opened till 9PM, or at least 8PM for a couple of them? As soon as it got to 8-830PM I was out the hotel and heading to the first place. So it was I got to Chez Michelle just as they opened their doors and before they have even turned their lights on inside, and just one girl had assumed her place at the bar and she was not my type. The doorman tried to charge me 20 Euros and no free drink, but I managed to convince him to throw in one free drink. I sat at the bar close to the door and admired the magnificent glowing 18th century erotic engravings covering the wall in that corner. I would love to know who the artist was, I would say he was English. Leaving there as quickly as I could finish my beer, I got the bus down Martin-Luther-Straße to Lustgarten. Lots of girls but once again I felt it was too early, and they had to prod one girl to get up on stage and do a dance. Again I left as quickly as I could finish my beer. I got the bus back to Zoo, passing Caligula which I will no doubt try on some future visit, and another bus up Ku’Damm. The old Sarah Young videokabin place has been turned into just a huge erotic DVD store, so boring.
