The destruction of Stuttgarter Platz red light bars

The old red light district of Stuttgarter Platz is now a very chic upmarket place with barely a trace of its former naughty past left.

Chocolate night bar is now Antiquadrat bookshop

Hanky Panky and Mon Cheri (it was in the black bedrooms above these two clubs I lost my Berlin virginity) are now Medusa and Galander Cocktail Bar respectively
