Rocky, that is, indeed, the Indra. Although the backdrop is similar to that of the Top Ten club, there are differences. Note the dark section in the Top Ten pics [behind Pete], also the lack of a piano. I'm not sure, but I think the Indra may not have had a raised stage, whereas the TT certainly did. Pete didn't have time to outfit himself with a snazzy lilac jacket, so wore a blue Italian jacket. Eventually, all their jackets disintegrated from the hours on stage. They first bought houndstooth bombers, then went for the leathers, and never looked back.

Having read about the Top Ten club for many years, you are lead to believe that it was a much more salubrious venue compared to the Indra which, by all accounts, was the absolute pits. Judging by these photos they don't look much different!
The Indra was at the dark end of the Grosse Feiheit, whereas the Top Ten was on the main Reeperbahn, thus attracting much more passing trade. I've never been in either club, but the opinion seems to be that Peter Eckhorn was a much better businessman than Bruno Koschmeider, treated the groups better, and generally ran a better venue. The Top Ten had been a Hippodrome in the past, so probably had more amenities than the Indra.
I agree, from everything I've heard, the Star Club was the best in Hamburg, and from what I saw was better than anything in Liverpool city centre, with the exception of the Empire [which wasn't a rock venue]
