  1. Don't get this place

    “I find it sketchy. Barmen and doormen are grumpy. OK for a drink but not much more.“

  2. Why so Grindr

    “I was here yesterday at "2 for 1". I must say it was crowded and it was Monday.

    A lot of good looking guys and good music. I had fun in the basement as well. So. it was a positive experience; however, I feel that guys are rather closed. No one talks, but everybody are just checking everyone's out. Also, a lot of Grinder users (lol).

    It is worth visiting, but more for cruising than for meeting new people. Also, the staff at the bar is not so friendly, but the guy at the cloak's room was just adorable.“

  4. The place is ok.

    “I visited Tom's in May. I am Dominican. The place was ok... cheap drinks, good music (a little loud). True, the bartender more than rude I guess he has a lot of attitude... but I wasn't there to be his friend. :P“

  5. What is the deal with this place?

    “This happened on Monday night, August 28, around 11:30 pm. We are a gay couple from Los Angeles who just arrived in Berlin. It was a Monday evening and we decided to check out the gay scenes in Berlin.

    We opted to walk the evening from Postdamer Station to the gay area. We stopped by at several gay bars along the way and it was pleasant. We came across Tom's Bar and decided to check it out.

    The doorman told us we couldn't come in, saying that it is a private bar. At first I was confused so I asked him again what he meant by "private" so he explained to me that it is a "private men's bar" not for all men. At this point, my boyfriend was a little ticked of.

    I was not satisfied by the answer so I went back to the guy and asked him again. I had never experience this kind of refusal so I was just curious. He kept saying its private man's club, so I said, do you mean gay? and I said that I am gay, so he said, "you can come in but your friend can't come in".

    Then I said with a "laughing" tone (politely), "he is my partner/boyfriend". At this point he insisted not letting him in, while other people were going in. I asked him for a reason, then he said something which I didn't understand, and said "what?". I thought he said, you can't come in, period. I thought he said "period," but my bf said he said "Piss off".

    It's a good thing i didn't hear the word "piss off". So apparently he said "piss off" about 3 times. Anyway, we walked away because my by this time, my bf was just mad. We really didn't know what the reason is. Was is the dress code? Do we look straight? and not until i said I was gay, then he said i could come in? But then when I said my "friend" is gay and is my bf, he still refused, is it because he was embarrassed that I "corrected" him? WOW, walking back to our hotel, I was flabergasted.

    Haven't us gay people suffer enough prejudice and discrimination only to feel outcast by the same group of our own people? The place where we feel comfortable among other gay people? By the way, I am Asian and my bf is as white as one can be. In fact he is German by descent. Whoever this guy is, I hope he learn a few lessons in compassion and good reasoning. I went to the website, there is nothing but just a one page. NO contact, no address no links anywhere. For those who think this is a bar worth going to, I'm glad you didn't experience this horrendous episode, but think twice before you go again as you may be next. I don't know. If I were in Berlin longer, I would totally go back and sit down with that person and dig his brain. As a side note, I am not bitter or upset about this. I just want to share my experience with others.“

    • unfortunate reality

      “You didn't mention your partner's age but I bet it was over 45! There is an ever increasing ageism attitude happening, especially in the gay community. I'm sorry you experienced it but certain Berlin clubs their doormen are particularly good at making older men feel worthless. Pity our sub culture is becoming even more vacuous than it already is.“

  7. Tom's is a joke

    “Tom's bare really is a joke and aimed at tourists. The basement can get busy but there is no real action. All the guys are walk round and round searching Grindr on their phones. The bar staff are so rude and try to short change you every time. Forget Tom's.“

  8. deceitful cheating bartender

    “I was there on Monday Aug 1st, 2016 on the 2 for 1 drinks night. As soon as I walked in I went to the first bar nearest to the entrance door to get a drink. At that moment I had forgotten the bartender is supposed to give you a receipt to get your second drink with it. This deceitful bartender gave me my drink and then pretended to be busy and had not given me the receipt. When I confronted him he denied. Anyway I wasn't dying for that drink but its the principal behind it and it shows what kind of people who work there!“

  11. Good

    “Last time I visited Berlin was in May and I made sure to go to this cruising bar twice, it is more crowded on a Friday evening but still lot of local guys or tourists visit the bar after 1 am in mid-week. I met really hot guys there, they opened the basement dark room areas after 1 or 1h30 am - before you just have a small dark room area. The one in the basement is kind of labyrinth full of guys, check well who is trying to play with you since it is dark. In general the experience was nice and funny and I would go there again.“

  12. Late, but any day of the week

    “This bar get the crowded quite late - usually after 1am, but the good thing is it can get busy any day of the week. The dark area has two parts - the deeper part was very dark - you hardly see anything so use caution.“

  13. had a door guy with attitude.

    “The door guy would not let me in. Said it was a private party (that was a lie) club was full. If you have a 2 for 1 special going on during the week and can not get customers in then don't do 2 for 1 or just tell them the truth if its full have to wait. I won't be back. Germany have to learn that my money can be spent somewhere else, and not at a club that can't handle the crowd. “
