Deutsche Disco, Ja?

Just thinking about going on a cruise makes me cringe, but if I were somehow forced onto a ship with hundreds of buffet obsessed travelers in search of a non-descript island to get wasted on, I would hope at the very least, there was a dance hall -slash- bar like the one I went to in Berlin (Mitte). It was a bit like Fassbinder filmed with a red gel, in the 90's, hinting to fashion from the 70's, but here in the 2000's. The music appropriately spanned the 60's through the 90's. In a city where everyone drinks beer, folks mysteriously drank mixed drinks out of plastic cups. Original DDR signs listing available drinks remain. Ja, baby, I liked it.
