Thoughts about/recommendations for supper clubs/underground restaurants in Berlin? What are the best ones? What are the pluses and minuses of exploring them? This may seem like a silly question, but we're gray-haired--will we feel demographically out of place? Thanks!

      Go to Berlin and just have fun...you won't feel out of place...it's not that kind of city. I always feel like I fit in because no one is staring., and I'm in my 60's.

        That's a really good point. Living in a college town, it's always so refreshing for my husband and me to go out in Berlin where it isn't unusual at all to see adults *much* older than 25.

        It's just a great city, period.

          A place recommended to me (just a regular restaurant)
          by several Berlin Germans (and I haven't gotten there yet, but next visit I'll do it) recommend Mutter Hoppe's. They said that it is filled with Germans (and some tourists) and has the good German cuisine.

        A quick google search turned up this here, which might be a good place to start:

          This is great--thanks! Have you (or anyone else) been to any of these? If yes, would love to hear….

            I have not. I once had reservations at one of those private hosted dinners (forget the name now), but they had to cancel on very short notice b/c their kitchen pipe burst.

            That was quite the bummer.
