Cologne - Bars & Nightlife
The best way to spend a free evening is in a Biergarten (“beer garden”), where beer is served in a pleasant, open-air setting away from the street. If you’re looking for more intense and exciting nightlife with bars and clubs, head for the areas outside the ring road, the Old Town and the Severin district in the south of the city.
All Bar One
Fashionable venue in a modern building with a huge glass façade, which can be opened. This combination of bar, restaurant and bistro also has a terrace where you can spend warm summer evenings. However, the “see and be seen” effect has had an influence on the prices.
Hammond bar is a bar with everything from beat to pop. Football fans can watch matches here.
Alternative trendy club in the south of the city, with different music on different days. Rock, pop, soul, funk, oldies and German pop mixed with hip hop.
Alter Wartesaal means "old waiting room", and that is exactly what it is. This night club is the old Hauptbahnhof (Central Station), now seeing the world as a club, restaurant and concert venue.
