FLINTA*s hang out together on the following evenings in Berlin pubs and bars
There are some Berlin bars, pubs and other event spaces that organise safe spaces especially for FLINTA*s. The abbreviation stands for women, lesbians, intersexual, non-binary, trans, and agender people. Whether it's a hot flirt or a relaxed exchange, these places are sure to have something for you!
FLINT* in Möbel Olfe
In Berlin, the 'Olfe' is a fixture of queer scene nightlife. On Tuesdays, the 'FLINT* evening' takes place in the ‘Möbel Olfe’ bar at Kottbusser Tor in the heart of rough Kreuzberg. The ‘Olfe’ often becomes packed very early, so it's never a problem to strike up a quick conversation at the bar. You shouldn't be in too much of a hurry for a beer if you want to remain popular! Smoking is allowed in the 'Olfe', and consequently, the air reeks late at night. But the venue turns into a good-spirited dance floor during the course of the evening when the DJs hit their decks.
FLINT*-Abend on Tuesday, from 6:00 p.m.
Reichenberger Straße 177, 10999 Berlin-Kreuzberg
U Kottbusser Tor

Love is in the air – FLINTA* at Silver Future
Tired of online dating? Then head to 'Silver Future' on Weserstraße in Neukölln. The event 'Love is in the air' is aimed at FLINTA*s who want to meet new people without having to pick up their mobile phones. That's why on this particular evening, all the tables in the queer bar will be numbered. In addition, a mini cable car runs above the heads of the guests, to which you can clip love letters or personal ads. Imagination is encouraged; fun and laughing fits are guaranteed!
Love is in the air, always on the third Wednesday of the month, from 7:00 p.m.
Weserstraße 206, 12047 Berlin-Neukölln

FLINTA-Stammtisch – Café Cralle
The queer-feminist 'Café Cralle' in Wedding has a long history. It was founded in 1977 in the Berlin district of Wedding. At the monthly 'FLINTA-Stammtisch' (regulars' table)’ you can chat for hours in a cosy neighbourhood pub atmosphere and get to know new people in a chilled, laid-back way.
"FLINTA Stammtisch" on the last Thursday of the month, from 7:00 p.m.

FLINTA*-Bar – K-Fetisch
'K-Fetisch', which like 'Silver Future' is located on Weserstraße in Neukölln, has developed over the years into a living room of sorts for Berlin's left-wing scene. During the day, the team sells delicious homemade cakes, including always at least one vegan option. Some guests use the venue to play board and card games. In the evenings, the café becomes a pub where you can drink cheap beer with a few friends in a cosy and queer-friendly atmosphere. The 'K-Fetisch' has a separate room for smokers. On the fourth Thursday of every month, the pub opens exclusively for FLINTA*s.

Dykes gone wild! – Pepsi Boston Bar
The new FLINTA* evening 'Dykes Gone Wild!' takes place every last Friday of the month in the lounge bar of the queer club 'SchwuZ'. Here you can enjoy drinks on the long, cushioned benches, or you can watch exclusive live acts by FLINTA* artists. You can dance to DJ sets by famous DJs from the Berlin lesbian scene, like DJ Marsmaedchen or DJ Trust.The.Girl. A handy tip: if you arrive before 9 p.m., you can attend the 'SchwuZ' party, 'Friends with Benefits', afterwards for free.

FLINTA* Thursday – Stueck
The cocktail bar 'Stueck' opened its doors in 2021 in the premises of the former queer pub 'Barbie Deinhoff's' in Berlin-Kreuzberg. The 'Stueck' team is almost exclusively female, the manager queer. The bar features a hip atmosphere with bare walls, industrial deco elements and minimalist furniture. A special feature on the menu: you can also order cocktails that are pre-mixed and freshly tapped from a barrel. How does it taste? Try it out! On Thursdays, the guests get so-called FLINTA* shots as a welcome drink.
FLINTA* Thursday, Thursdays, from 7:00 pm

FLINTA* @ B-Lage
The 'B-Lage' is one of the few remaining explicitly left-wing bars that still exist in Berlin. The beer is not expensive here and you can comfortably discuss this, that, and the world situation in general with friends on old sofas in a relaxed atmosphere in both the non-smoking and smoking rooms. Every second Thursday of the month, the Neukölln pub opens its door exclusively to FLINTA*s, in order to, as it states on its website, "create a counternarrative to everyday sexism". Until further notice, only those who have been vaccinated and/or who have recovered from Covid, along with a negative test result for the day, are allowed to enter the room.
FLINTA* evening on the second Thursday of the month, from 6:00 p.m.

Siblinx – A Night of FLINTA* Fun – Tipsy Bear
On Instagram, the 'Tipsy Bear' bar presents itself as "the queer heart of Prenzlauer Berg". With its drag shows, karaoke evenings and mini parties, the bar has created a loyal fan base. On the first Wednesday of every month, the 'Tipsy Bear' team invites you to a chilled-out FLINT* board game evening.
FLINTA* Fun first Wednesday of the month, from 8:00 p.m.

Frauen*Freitag – Sonntags-Club
The 'Sonntags-Club' is queer Berlin city history! Founded in the 1980s, this fixture of the LGBTIQ* scene was the first club created for lesbians, gays, and bisexuals in the former GDR. The organisation still calls Prenzlauer Berg home. In addition to a number of other events on offer that reflect the entire diversity of the queer scene, the so-called 'Women's* Friday' also takes place every week.
Frauen*Freitag, Fridays from 6:00 p.m.

FLINTA Fridays – La BarBer
Every Friday, the tiny Neukölln hair salon 'La BarBer' transforms into a FLINTA* bar. The audience is young and queer and dances between hairdressers' chairs, wash basins and mirrors until dawn. No wonder the small, extraordinary location is routinely overcrowded!
FLINTA Fridays, Fridays from 8:00 p.m.
