    All kinds of bars and music places with DJ's or live jazz music. The lunapark was there, next to the river Rhine. And the Rhine looked great!
    The atmosphere. Feeling free and having FUN!

    Dress Code: various, but mostly casual.

    I don't know whether every foreigner that visits Cologne does this kind of thing i.e. beer tasting.

    Don't leave this city without trying their signature beer called simply - Kölsch. It's pretty light and.... well, TRY IT!

    The Altermarkt area has some good pubs and restaurants (inexpensive ones) serving Kölsch. Offhand, I can think of 2 nice joints serving this kind of beer - Gaffel and Peters. The folks who patronize these joints appear nice and friendly.

    Dress Code: Casual wear.

    The only real gay Club in Cologne. I never been there but I heard that it should be very good. There are many special events.

    Dress Code: Something crazy, good, expensive.

    MTC
    This is a really cool club. It's in a basement. This weekend (24th Nov.) I was on a concert from Friday's Choice. This is a newcomer band from Cologne and they played good Rock.
    In the MTC there are very often concerts from newcomer bands and other bands, also it is a disco and bar. It's not too small or too big. I liked the atmosphere.

    Nice dark jazz bar, with the hilarious mechanic puppets Tünnes und Schäl, who start to play when you insert a coin.

    Barney Vallely's Irish Pub

    Barney Vallely's Irish Pub is a small pub with a friendly atmosphere.

    Guinness draft beer and sport on the screens; the normal Irish pub ingredients are all there.

    Dress Code: As you are.

    Cosy athmosphere, good music, weiters with acrobatic skills and good sense of humour. Not a must see activity but do not miss to see it!

    The Corkonian

    Cologne is twinned with the Irish city of Cork. That's why there is an Irish pub at Alter Markt which is called "The Corkonian". A nice idea. And pub... with very friendly service!

    Dress Code: None

    You have the choice between 50 different beers here. I've been to this place years ago and can't remember much apart from that I chose Labatts Ice.

    Alter Markt

    A lot of pubs around a beautiful square, that is what the Alter Markt is. You can drink a famous Kölsch (or more than one) on one of the many terraces during summertime.

    Fruh is maybe Cologne's most famous brewhouse, or at least it's best. They serve only one beer - Fruh Kolsh.
