Closed since March 2008 !!!
On the ground floor of this impressing building was the "Krokodil" a mixture of a bistro, a restaurant and a coffee-house. Founded in 1884 it was one of the oldest nightlife-spots of Karlsruhe. In summertime a lot of people sat in front of the building enjoying a drink and watching the bypassers.
It's a shame and a big loss for the city that they closed down this very traditional place.
