It would seem that number 22 on C/ Bailén was, is and always will be a space for cabaret. Free-and-easy, with red sofas, rococo lamps, mirrors and velvet curtains, Cabaret Berlín, it's said, has enough room for all kids of artistic endeavours: live music, circus shows, theatre, comedy, fashion, magic, performance art, multimedia.
