Clubs are clubs, you say? Not so Berlin, a 19-year-old club with a clientele as diverse as the population around its Belmont digs. Whether drag queens or gay men, straight girls or the ambiguous metrosexual population, everybody goes to Berlin because everybody has a good time. The original Berlin space, approximately half of what it is now, once housed numerous, rotating art installations, and although those gave way to more extravagant theme nights, Berlin remains at the cutting edge of club culture. In every way a neighborhood club for everyone with an open mind.
