Berlin nightlife at its best often feels like 1990s New York, with unmarked doors leading to repurposed or rediscovered spaces with lots of original patina (in the case of King Size, past incarnations include a legendary underground gay bar from Communist days). The walls are a mix of bathroom-style tiles and exposed concrete that bears the scars and soot of many decades. King Size came about in early 2010 after the owners of the neighboring Grill Royal realized they needed a place to steer their rambunctious guests at the end of the night. This is where you will find the glitterati of what's known as the Berliner Republik, a group of journalists, gallery owners, writers, and hangers-on in their thirties and forties who seem, based on the heavy weeknight traffic, not to be concerned about getting up early in the morning. Stay late yourself and the golden lights and hazy smoke can start to play tricks on your mind. Before you know it, you're in a timeless Berlin belonging to no decade in particular. —Ralph Martin
