Tucked away in the depths of the Salon Zur Wilden Renate beer garden lies the Peepshow, a glimpse into a ruby fantasy.
Between the currently closed club and the self-service bar stands the peepshow box, so unassuming, from afar that you could even miss it on any casual evening downing beers and having a smoke. Luckily, tonight you’re a bit more curious, and on a second glance, you notice little cutouts looking into the box, each with a small vagina plastered underneath and a sign that says “tip the slit.” Just before 20:30, a voice announces to the crowd over a megaphone that there are 2 tickets left for the 20:30 peepshow. Buy one. Buy the other for your friend if you have a spare five euros.

It is very hard to sum up what the city is in a single world. However, I believe that circus is the best one to describe Berlin. Apart from the endless colorful and striking aspects these two places have in common, Berlin reminds me of a circus, as the latter has always been a place of acceptance and respect towards creatures that stand out for the one or the other reason. Everybody is welcome there regardless of their story, their past or present.
Very few cities can boast such a variety of beautiful, relatable and wild facets, like Berlin. I can go out on the street, however I please and nobody will look at me funny, not because this great big city is rife with anonymity and indifference, but because Berlin stands for respect to the very essence of human nature. It constantly reminds me of the great potential that there is inside each and every one of us as well as the liberty to put it out there for the entire world to see.
If there is a currently a video, that encapsulates exactly this, it would be the following teaser for the party of the House of Red Doors, that happens regularly at Wilde Renate.
What is Berlin for you?
Why the House of Red Doors’ theme parties are not to be missed and how Berlin’s authentically wild side is reflected in them, is something we have already written about. What you might have missed though is the mannequin challenge the whole Bad Bruises crew, that organizes the parties, has recently shot. If this does not make you feel butterflies of excitement in your stomach and the need to learn more about this talented group of people and their vision, I do not know what could then. I personally expected Jessica Lange’s Elsa Mars from American Horror Story to show up owning it as always.
So mark the 31st of May on your calendar because The House of Red Doors’ iconic party is back and you should definitely check it out.
