St. Pauli and Reeperbahn, Hamburg
One of various really old bars on the Kiez in the Reeperbahn quarter. A good place to have a cold blond one (beer) in the evening and to meet new people every day. I´m not absolutely sure, but I think Erna (the place is called: Zum Silbersack (bei Erna) is still working there, already an old lady.
Die grosse Freiheit is as the Reeperbahn surely one of the most famous streets of Hamburg. Several night clubs are placed here, as well a church at the end of the street. One famous spot is e.g the Dollhouse, a table dance club, prefered from these thousands of bachelor parties (stag nights) that are strolling around in Hamburg every weekend at least.
If you want to party at night, you will sooner or later end up at the so called 'Kiez'. It's the area around Reeperbahn.
There are innumerable clubs, bars and other party spots. i hope i will find time enough to write about some special ones in detail later.
Most famous for nightlife is the Reeperbahn (St. Pauli), it is the red light district of Hamburg. But don't panic, it is not dangerous, because there are many people at night. You will find there theaters, musicals, pubs and discotheques.
The Reeperbahn. I was surprised the first time I was there by the atmosphere: romantic couples strolling among prostitutes, sex shops...Somehow it didn't fit very well, but it was great fun.
People from Hamburg have the reputation of being colder than even the rest of the Germans. But that is a generalisation.
Phil Fuldner, Swen G., Phats and Small. Some of the famous DJ´s which are rocking quite frequently the BFK. Once you are in you can party all night with the sweetest party-folk of northern Germany.
Beer 4 Euro
Cover-Charge 10 Euro

Quite Expensive but worth it.
The cutest girls funny guys and vibrant DJ´s. These are the secrets of their success. If you want to see how Hamburg rocks come here - stay away from the 'bavarian-beer-tourist-trap-bars'.
Dress Code: Stylish, funky, sexy. Please no backpacker dress.
Reeperbahn is loud and busy on Fridays, Saturdays, everyday... I'm not sure if it's still there (I hope so), but go to the renovated factory turned club, Fabrik, for dancing and live music. Hamburg also has quite a few jazz clubs.
Dress Code: As I recall, most places were pretty casual.
Einfach VOR dem Besuch eines Cabarets auf der Reeperbahn mal DIESES Buch lesen, dann wird vieles klar!
A long crawl down the Reeperbahn. I suppose it has to be done in the name of research! Plenty of beer to be drunk in this street.
