Located right in the centre of Prenzlauer Berg, Tipsy Bear is a friendly queer bar welcoming people of all persuasions. This quirky space is a gem for watching Berliners’ unique performances and, in this venue, you rarely know what to expect. Stand-up comics spark waves of relatable content within the community of sex, sexuality and the realness of life in Berlin. Conveniently ‘English speaking’ for the non-Germans in the room, the stand-up shows encourage an inclusive atmosphere where locals and visitors can socialise and be entertained. With a real focus on queer talent, other acts include interpretive dance, drag and burlesque. Expect rawness from the performers but with a light heartedness and a great sense of fun.
Events change regularly so keep a look out on their Facebook page or try your luck with a casual drop in. All profit is made from donations at the end of the night so no need for pre planning. Sundays there is a fabulous drag brunch and Thursday you can strut your stuff with Karaoke. Aside from events, this bar offers a cozy atmosphere and great cocktails to enjoy drinks with friends or a hot date. Although the menu is not the cheapest, this bar is always worth a visit! Entertainment is really the focus here – Tipsy Bear prides itself as an exciting venue to be enjoyed by anyone willing to step out of their comfort zone.
