The Story of Lieschen Mueller
The experience restaurant Lieschen Mueller im Parterre floor tells a true story. Admittedly, with a generous sprinkle of glitter, vibrant colors, and fanfare on top… but Lieschen is real. Her real name is Marlies.
During the Cold War era, she was an artist in the State Circus of the DDR. It was there that she met her great love, one of the tent builders and dismantlers of the circus. Dancing had always been her greatest passion. She had a special fondness for burlesque, the entertainment dance of the wild 1920s.
For many years, they traveled the country (but never to the West). When they wanted to start a family, they settled down in their hometown of East Berlin. They rented an apartment in Mitte and found work at the old Friedrichstadtpalast. Her husband became a stage technician there, and she became a vaudeville dancer. The famous clown Ferdinand became their close friend and one day gifted her a white rabbit, which is now the mascot of the Burlesque Bar.
You can find all of this and more at Lieschen Mueller beneath the TV Tower. For those who look attentively, they’ll discover many small details that tell this story. And with a bit of luck, you might even catch a glimpse of the real Lieschen aka Marlies! Because sometimes, she sits at the circus bar and observes the colorful hustle and bustle, inspired by her life…
