The street adress tells everything: Schöne Aussicht, beautiful views. The bar Bolero is situated between the city center of Kassel and the Karlsaue park (directly next to the New Gallery of Art) and there you can enjoy a beer (especially: Astra from Hamburg, Germany), some cocktails or – what seems to be a specialty: good burgers.
Well, Offenbach isn’t the most beautiful place in the world. But if you need a beer or a coffee close to the river Main, have the children entertained by a big sandbox and a playground with a ship, the Hafen 2 might be right. The place offers a café, a bar, an outdoor cinema and a concert stage.
Göttingen is a university town where the students account for one fifth of the population – and therefore has the highest bar density in northern Germany.

The “Zur Kiste” is the oldest wine bar in Stuttgart and lives up to it’s name: A tiny place for maybe 15-20 persons, only one room, but a great atmosphere.

Looking for a cocktail bar in Hannover? The Spandau Projekt isn’t a secret hint anymore, but always worth a visit. Located in the Nordstadt of Hannover, you can get excellent cocktails and good, priceworthy food. The venue has a well styled design and is close to the garden section of Hannover.
Named after the Spanish town Salamanca this alternative bar in Göttingen, Germany, is located in the Gartenstraße – a residential area. They serve chorizo, patatas bravas, tapas, Spanish wine and different vegan and vegetarian dishes. The location is a bit shabby as normal for left-wing sites. Not a recommendation for everyone, but a place where you might find me on a Friday evening.
Café do Mar – that sounds like summertime, surfing, sun and cocktails. And that’s absolutely what it is. Sometimes they are making barbecues, but this place is by then absolutely overcrowded. Best come here in the afternoon and enjoy a nice coconut milkshake.
Okay, there are a lot of good bars in Berlin, Germany – but this one is special: The Booze bar in Boxhagener Straße, close to the Oberbaumbrücke in East Berlin doesn’t need a menu list. It is in the head of the barkeeper and this guarantees best guidance. They call this “Assisted drinking” and it ensures best cocktail choices.
Not far from Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, Germany, you’ll find the Solar – a sky bar with a high quality restaurant. When walking onto the parking space close to Stresemannstraße you see a door without a doorknob.
Beer and the United States? That doesn’t fit too well together for a German, continously experiencing the advantages of the German purity requirements (“Reinheitsgebot“). But in fact, there is a pretty good brewery in New York City. One with splendid bottle designs and various kinds of beer to taste.
