It’s regular location is on the second floor of the restaurant Max und Moritz (Oranienstraße 162, 10969 Berlin (U-Bahn stops Moritzplatz or Kottusser Tor)). Ivo Gabrowitsch organizes the Typostammtisch, so check his website fontwerk.com for the latest info. It is always a great time and is highly recommended!
