This is how it goes: you get there at about one in the morning. You stand in line for two, maybe three hours. Then it’s time for the Gesichtskontrolle – facial scrutiny. A bright beam into your face and you’re suddenly looking deep into the eyes of the ultimate Mr. Scary. His face is a web of tattoos. His ears, nose and mouth are heavily pierced. He’s half Goth, half gangster. And he’s judging you. The question is: are you good enough, or are you bad enough, to get into the coolest club in Berlin, the Berghain. The club that Mr. Scary so fiercely guards in his capacity as the baddest bouncer you’re ever likely to meet. He’s Sven Marquardt, my latest guest on Talking Germany, and I know that I must look deep into those eyes. And not flinch.
