Cafe Spielplatz: My second office
A quiet little cafe or drinking coffee or a beer. A lot of people come here to talk, or read the paper. I use the somewhat quiet atmosphere to do some work from time to time. A nice ambience. Usually Jazz music playing on the sound system.
Dress Code: Not really
Fassle: An Irish Pub in Schwäbisch Gmünd
A small, smoky bar with an Irish theme. You can get Guinness and Kilkenny here. There is often Irish music on the jukebox, and if there isn't just ask.
If Sandra is working behind the bar, don't try to outdrink her. I swear she has a hollow leg to put the liquor in.
Dress Code: Just have clothes on
Taverne Bar: A little bit of home in Schwäbisch Gmünd
CNN on the TV, cheesy songs on the jukebox, English speaking bartenders. Good inexpensive Italian food (Gnocchi mit Basillico is my favorite). A great liquor selection. An owner (Andriano) who is from Italy, has lived in America, and now makes his home in Germany. A house dog that is adorable.
Dress Code: No dress code.... I've seen anything from jeans/tshirt to jacket and tie...
