The Lützower Lampe (‘Lützow Lamp’) was a small cabaret in Charlottenburg.
It served as a filming location in the movie “Just a Gigolo” with David Bowie, Sydne Rome, and Maria Schell. Additionally, this venue holds significance as the site where David Bowie commemorated his 31st birthday in the company of notable figures such as Brian Eno and Iggy Pop.
Oh, that was the Lützower Lampe, a place where I hung out a lot when I lived in Berlin. It was a small cabaret bar with good beer and ten wooden tables. The barman and the bouncer and the guy on stage were all the same person. There are some good memories in the song German Days. When I listen to songs I made in Berlin, like Lust for Life or The Passenger, a film plays in my head which reminds me of that time.– Iggy Pop, ZEITMagazin, 2016
