Berlin’s Notorious KitKatClub #NSFW

The first time I left a review of the KitKatClub on Tripadvisor, it had over 30,000 views within the first week. Wow, and from then on, I got at least once a week the same question — how do you get in?

First a few steps back. For tourists with an inclination for fetish, the KitKatClub is a must-try destination whether you come to Berlin, Germany, or any place in Europe. I say ‘must-try’ as there are countless reviews complaining how difficult it is to get in.

So, let’s start with how to make it more likely to get in, and when it’s worth getting in. The highlight of every week is the Saturday night party, whether it’s announced or not, it’s on. It’s no doubt the most difficult day of the week to get in, but also the one that is most worthwhile. Since I don’t live in Berlin anymore, it’s been a while. Last time I was there was for the German Fetish Week last year. I had tickets, but they are only as good as the outfit you are wearing. I was in luck. I had just gotten a new catsuit (that’ll be a post for another day), and being female is a definite advantage. Sorry all single straight guys, LGBTQIAP+ have a leg up on you. Still make an effort, and your chances increase. Call the girlfriend you dumped a few years back, but who is smoking hot, and you may just get lucky 🙂

If you’re over 50, make an effort. Age is no excuse, even though that club obviously caters to a younger crowd. You’ll be cut some slack, but just remember, all the people who started the fetish scene in London and later in Berlin are now in their 60s!

You don’t have to wear your most extravagant outfits as you stand in line. On the inside, there is a dressing room, at the coat check, everything (including your beloved phone) goes there, just keep some cash on you for drinks at the bar. You get a ticket in return and I’ve never had any trouble getting all my belongings back in a flash. But don’t go overboard. There is barely enough space to turn around, so don’t expect great comfort when you change. A helping hand will always be there if you ask.

Like with so many clubs, what you wear and how you behave matters. This is where being mature helps. Since many fetish clubs require extreme respect and tolerance by anyone who is inside — you may be offended by what you see, but that’s no excuse to be rude — the doorman (typically a man) has a couple of rules. If you look like you can’t behave, you’re out. If you make intolerant remarks, you’re out. If you look like all you want to do is go inside to see what’s going on, you’re out.

To get in, it’s best to look like you want to be part of creating an amazing atmosphere. Every night has a dress code that is strictly enforced. More strictly than in most other places that say they have a dress code. Then there is the simple space constraint. If the club is full, it’s full. So don’t come during peak hours. When I got there during the German Fetish Week, I was first stopping by around midnight and the line was around the block. By 3:00 a.m. it was just a short wait. On the inside, it was still as crowded as ever.

I think there are a couple of misconceptions around. One is that everyone is having sex. No. It’s not that you won’t find couples having sex, but mostly it’s actually the DJs, the music, and the atmosphere that brings people in. The dance floors are always packed. It’s hot, it’s sweaty, it’s a bit grungy, it’s about the sexiest place on earth. Not the most romantic, but for pure sex-appeal, I haven’t found a better place.

And if the dance floor isn’t hot enough for you, try to find (if they are open) the doors to the basement (hint, close to the entrance). Like so many old buildings in Berlin, the basement is a seemingly endless series of connected cavernous room that each have different themes. Think WWII bunkers with exposed walls, dim lights, narrow halls and sudden turns. There is some dancing going on, but you can also have a drink and a chat at the bar without losing your voice after 5 minutes. Beyond that, what you see any given night is more than can be described in a blog post. Oh, did I mention the pool?

Most important is that everyone has a great time, great atmosphere, absolutely no unwanted touching, and respect for people from all walks of life.

And if after all that you don’t get in, try another night. Just take it with a dose of humility and be grateful there are still places where money doesn’t buy you access.

Something that cannot be said for my most recent Audible book (go ahead, call me hypocrite…) https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Submission-of-a-Fetish-Escort-Breaking-Clarice-Audiobook/B07R6B3YHY?asin=B07R6B3YHY

  1. I’m glad I read this – it blew all my preconceptions of the KitKat Club out the water! It sounds like a wonderful place, but I wonder if (like certain other clubs) they have a policy of favouring young, attractive, slim people?
