One of the oldest bars in the city-aging but always lively and busy in the evening. They have tables outside overlooking the HOF square and the dome, a lovely meeting point in the sun.
Dress Code: Bring a smile and have a beer.
A bar / pub that's busy at any time - late at night for a last beer before you go home or earlier to start your night out or in the afternoon for a coffee and a chat...
Nice, plain interior, toilets are painted in cool colors- bright orange for the ladies, and blue (so I was told) for the gents.
Sometimes very weird music.
The Guinness House is a huuuge place, on two floors. Still, you don't really notice that coz it's really a number of smaller, comfortable rooms, very "genuine" looking, giving you a feeling of being at home, in Ireland.
Many empty whiskey bottles on the shelves, posters and photographs, smoky air and small tables.
Perfect for just a beer or a long long nite :-)
Sausalitos - an always crowded Mexican bar and restaurant with a great variety of cocktails (happy hour: 5.00-7.00pm, HAPPY HOUR FOR MARGARITAS STARTING AT 11PM!) and quite expensive Mexican food and snacks.
In 1751 Johann Joseph Couven built the first theatre in Aachen. In 1822 the municipal government decided to built a bigger one. Three years later the new theatre opened with the opera “Jessonda" by Louis Spohr.
nice laid-back-place to chill out both in the afternoon and in the evening.
the location is unique in Aachen, it's set amongst loads of other places to hang out (Tangente, Cafe MAdrid, Atlantis...), there's hardly anything else...
Have a Milchkaffee or one of the fourty different sorts of tea. Especially in summer it's just relaxing to sit on the large terrace, watching the crowds pass by.
Dress Code: none at all! just come as you are!!!! ;)
In summer - just hanging around the main square. A lot of students hang out here.
Anytime - Start off on Pontstrasse, the Molkerei is a good bar. Most of the places on this street also have outdoor seating in the summer.
Dive in the crowded street bars and try hot wine as it heat you up! German people there were open to chat and have a good time even if the don't know you. Great experience.
The main theater in Aachen is not only pleasent to visit, it also looks amazing. You'll find it on your way from the train station to the center. It's got a real ancient Roman/Greek feel to it.
Very handy for the shops and market and useful to warm and shelter when around the Christmas Market. There's a bar right at the back where it's usually easy to get a quick drink.
Lennet Kahn usually gets pretty crowded later at night. Sometimes there is Salsa music, the owners are South American.
I would suggest to start the evening / night at 'Pontstrasse'. It´s a lively street with lots of cafés, restaurants and bars.
