In 1931, during the heyday of this across-the-nightclub flirtation, described the process of receiving a call from an amorous stranger: “the tabletop telephones buzzed, and the acquaintance with the blonde, raven-haired or redheaded, monocle-wearing beauty was made, one was no longer alone, and had twice as much fun.” (At the Ballhaus Berlin, this numbered phone system still lives today—check out photos here.) Similar systems thrived at the Femina, the larger of the two nightclubs, which boasted more than 2,000 seats, “two large bars and a smaller one in the vestibule, in addition to three orchestras, a hydraulic dance floor,” and over 225 table telephones, which were accompanied by instructions in both German and English.

But the process of staring, judging, and messaging potential suitors from afar—hallmarks of modern dating apps—is not new. Two nightclubs in particular—the Resi and the Femina—pioneered the trend.
Beginning in the 1920s, nightclub-goers in Berlin who feared face-to-face encounters could communicate with beautiful strangers from across the room. At the Resi (also called the Residenz-Casino), a large nightclub with a live band and a dance floor that held 1,000 people, an elaborate system of table phones and pneumatic tubes allowed for anonymous, late-night flirtation between complete strangers.
Singles needed only to look around the room until a fetching stranger caught their eye, note the number, and then direct a message to that table.
“Lonesome Americans, and others, can call or send a note to equally lonesome women who look like they would enjoy company,” the article noted.
