More Than Just a Club
Party and culture! Welcome to SchwuZ. As Berlin’s largest queer club, we bring together dancing, art and community work all under one roof. Our clientele is as diverse as our projects. Women and men, or neither of the above, white and Black queers, queers of color, transgender and intersex people, gays and lesbians, bearded women, queens, butches and femmes, people with and without disabilities, people with migration backgrounds, young and old, and so much more all celebrate together here.
We live queer pop culture and provide a stage for all types of artistic expression. We’re more than just a club. From cabaret, theater, exhibitions, screenings, concerts, readings, discussions, shows through to the legendary party nights – our event calendar impresses with a multifaceted program. We also have a friendly, skilled and multifaceted team. SchwuZ is queer through and through. We promote dialogue and offer a place for communication and space for respite.
The networking and development of the LGBTQIA+ community isn’t just our wellspring, it’s a matter near and dear to our hearts. Since SchwuZ’s founding back in 1977, we’ve been and remain an important meeting point for the scene. Wonderful queer projects, including the city magazine Siegessäule, the Prinz Eisenherz Bookstore, the Schwulenberatung counselling center, and the first Berlin CSD were all launched at SchwuZ. We continue living and loving our club culture, beyond the typical social norms and rules: We’re loud, proud queers!
Forty-five years, four locations: Created as a gay meeting place in Berlin, today we’re a queer club for all colors of the rainbow – party and event location, cultural temple and meeting place, a safer space.
