One of the marvels of peaceful co-existence is the area around Kottbusser Tor, where the thriving Turkish community and bohemian art and gay community meet. The vast 1960s housing estate that is home to many Turkish families also houses Möbel-Olfe, a rowdy alternative gay bar. The old chairs glued to the ceiling are a cheeky nod to the space’s original function as a furniture shop. Thursdays are when things really get pumping and you can often see the foggy mass of bodies pressed against the large windows on either side of the building. Some of the Panorama Bar residents are regulars and they have been known to get up on the decks for special occasions. Otherwise expect old house, hi-NRG and disco from the DJs to go with the bar’s generous long drinks.
