Connection Club it is not only considered a temple for techno/house lovers, but also the most popular one if you like dancing and sex cruising. It has a large area called “Twilight Zone”, where gay sex cruising is allowed. It is especially busy after midnight. Located in Schoneberg, the first gay neighborhood in Berlin, Connection club has been totally refurbished a few years ago and is the perfect place where to continue the party after visiting some of the bars in the area.
