Su Casa opened 2006 in the Xinedome building (near city center / main-station). It has a Lounge and a 'beach bar'.
It features theme parties (music or lifestyle themes). People mostly aged in their twenties. Prices are average. Enjoyed some good parties there.
There is a little bar on top of the Xinedome building with a great view over Ulm. It is not connected to Su Casa, entry is free.
Dress Code: Depends on the theme.
The Wiley Club is one of the coolest places Tim's taken me in Ulm. The first thing you notice when you walk in is its long elevated bar. Serving up great espressos, cappucinos, wine and mixed drinks, the bar staff is really friendly, a lot speak good English.
The Wiley Club also serves a nice brunch buffet, lunch, dinner etc. The food looks great, but I've never eaten here. We usually just come in the evening for drinks.
They also have a stage and frequently host live music acts.
If you come to Ulm when it's warm, you can also sit outside on their nice terrace.
Dress Code: Smart casual. It has a hip atmosphere.
Rockside features ...rock-music (you didn't guess, right?). All kind of rock, mostly visited by people aged 25-35. Very reasonable prices (beer 2-2,50 EUR, longdrinks from 2,50 EUR). Terrace with BBQ outside, table-soccer and burgers downstairs.
No dress code, entry fee is 5EUR incl. 1EUR bonus for a drink. Nice place if you're into that kind of sound. Open Friday 10pm - 5am, Saturday 11pm - 5am.
It's a bit outside the city-center, oposite to the IKEA-store, next to Burger King. Take a bus from the theater and hop out at 'Beim B'scheid'.
Notice: On Sunday mornings, Rockside changes its name to SugarClub and features Ulm's only afterhour club, open 6am - 10/11am. They play house/electro, often live-acts.
Dress Code: None so far.
Yellow is a house/R&B club in the city center of Ulm. Great parties, very crowded mostly (which means you really have to fight for your drinks at the bar). The dancefloor is downstairs, not too big and quite sweaty. It is an affiliate of Myer's. Open only Fridays 10pm to 4am. Prices: 3EUR / beer, 7-10EUR / cocktails and longdrinks. Specials for ladies (free entry or drinks). Entry fee for the guys 5EUR.
After closing-time the partypeople tend to move over to the Muensterplatz to enjoy a snack at the market (some booths open ~5am already).
Dress Code: Stylish. Bouncers don't like boy-groups and drunks.
Roxy is one of Ulm's culture projects located in an old factory building. From outside it doesn't look inviting, but don't be scared.

On friday it features the 'Rockbar' - with Rockmusic in hall 3.

Entry fee: 5EUR.
Dress Code: None, bouncers aren't picky. Don't be too drunk, though.
Cat and Sauschdall are two different 'clubs' in one location. There's dark wave, gothic, metal playing for the metal- and goth-fans at Cat (wich is upstairs). Often live acts and concerts.
Sauschdall downstairs is a Jazz-Club featuring live-acts weekly.
Every thursday both clubs are open all the same, so you have to pay only once. Sauschdall then plays electro/techno, minimal, drum'n bass, etc. (Fee: 2EUR after 10pm)
On special occasions few times a year the location is used for RolePlayGames or cinema-events.
The place is located next to the University of Applied Sciences Ulm and the hospital in an old cellar, which is a remaining of an ancient fort. Smoky, sticky but very cool somehow. Mostly visited by students. Cheap prices, unique atmosphere.
Open thursday 9pm to 2am.
Citrus is located in the Frauenstrasse. Great house/electro downstairs, often live acts, famous dj's great party. Unfortunately they play Black/R&B in the lounge now.

Prices 3EUR beer / 7-10EUR cocktails and longdrinks. Bus stop 'Frauenstrasse'. Bouncers can get picky sometimes.

Puffer(bar) is the place where an Ulm-night often ends. When the other bars close, move to Puffer and meet fellow creatures of the night, people aged 20-30 I'd say, many students. Sixties interieur (original) and cheap prices, loud music (alternative, indie, britpop) sometimes live bands. Sofa, Tablesoccer and StreetFighterII in the back room :-) Nice staff (chief Andrew is from UK). This is the place with the cheapest prices in Ulm.
Fills up around 2am, especially on weekends crowded till 4 or 5am.
Pufferbar is located on tram-line 1 between stops Justizgebäude and Willy-Brandt-Platz.
Dress Code: None.
Myer's calls itself the finest spot in Ulm. Opinions divide.
Music is standard house/black, R&B mix, nice interieur (was better before the relaunch - where are the sofa's??). Prices around 3EUR / beer - 7 to 9 EUR / cocktail. Long queue, picky bouncers.
Free food (Pasta). Selected blend of people.
Dress up and dance.
Dress Code: Depends on the bouncer's opinion. Just be stylish.
The Bauhöfer brewery was founded in 1852 - it celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2002 - and by the end of his weekend with Sabine and Marlene old Cliffie felt that he'd had a beer for every year of the brewery's existence. Don't ask the names of the bars he visited: the weekend passed in a haze until Sunday was spent sipping Apfelsaft before the drive back to Heidelberg.
