We ended up spending a Friday and Saturday night in the same night club. It was crowded both nights, full of locals and Americans in age of 22-30. There was fairly big dance floor and it was all the time full of people. Music was mainly typical chart dance music. Drinks were mid-priced.
Don't break your glass, you will be thrown out of the place.:)
Dress Code: Anything neat goes.
Centrally located, expensive looking bar that has was fully crowded at least on Friday evening. The people consisted mainly of local yuippies, who did not seem to be overfriendly towards us tourists. Expensive drinks.
On Saturdays and Sundays there is breafast buffet for 4,90e (10:00-15:00), but the selection did not look so promising so we decided to go to Subways anyway..
Dress Code: They won't throw you out by your clothing, but you won't fit in with jeans and sneakers. Wearing a suit is not a mistake here.
Cafe/bar with high standards and style. Expensive prices, favoured by businessmen and yuippees. Wooden chairs were not very comfortable, but the toilettes with comforting music were sights themselves. Service was very friendly!
Dress Code: Dress classy.
The pedestrian area of Trier is of course in the historical centre of the city and it is very lively at the beginning of the night; many people (mainly tourists) walk around, the atmosphere is cool, and looking at the coloured, baroque half timbered houses, the well lit towers of the churches, having a drink at the terrace of a pub is a quite nice thing to do in Trier.
The bell tower of St Gangolph (main picture) dominates the market place, but the towers of the cathedral in a back street are more impressive (picture 2); the arch of a side entrance of the cathedral (picture 3) looks wonderful at night, with all the statues, in a symmetrical composition; but after the religious buildings, you may pass by a half timbered house with a “Mephisto” sign (picture 4), and we finished our walk at the Porta Nigra (picture 5), of course!
Dress Code: Haha, just be aware of the evening breeze!
I have recently been to a wedding party that took place in this bar at the ring road around Trier's old town. As I loved the location I decided to write this tip even if I haven't been in the bar under "normal circumstances". Cafe Lübke is an upstairs room with a bar in the middle, comfy sofas and windows all around. It feels like drinking on a busy intersection or like being in the tower of a very small airport. Loved it!
Dress Code: Scruffy will do. 70s will do (so that you fit to the interieur design!). Anything, even a wedding dress, will do.
The uniquely named "Irish Pub" in Trier was our favorite spot for nightlife when we lived in the area. Not only did it have great beer, including Guinness and Kilkenny, but they usually had live music at the small stage in the back of the restaurant area. Usually the performer was a single singer with a guitar, or at biggest a duo, but it was always entertaining. The place usually filled up with a friendly crowd from all over Europe and the US on the weekends.
Dress Code: casual
This place is awesome. It is really hoppin' on Friday nights, and it is in the center of a little town outside of Spangdahlem Air Base, called Binsfeld. This club is three stories tall, and is open pretty much all damn night.
Dress Code: Dress decent
The Woodstock was a great place for listening to classic rock, blues and jazz, while drinking local beers and wines. One night each week, the owner, a musician in addition to his business duties, held a live jam session open to any local musicians.
Dress Code: This was a casual place but jeans OK.
This is very typical Irish pub. It is located in very centre, has live music every night and offers typical Irish pub refreshments for fairly high price. The good news is that it was very crowded also on those nights when there were people in no other places of the town. This place is very popular among Americans, who are plenty in the Trier area because their airbase is quite nearby. The base is the largest US army base in the world outside US!
Dress Code: Anything will go!

When in Trier, you must go to the Forum. This one is the most popular club in Trier. It is a dance club that plays hip-hop on friday nights and house on saturday nights.
I recommend friday nights. It gets quite crowded in there.
Our guide took us to this place as this was his favorite when he was in town. Our guide was in his upper 30s and enjoyed classic rock/oldies, lounging like atmospheres and people watching... if you're up for that, I'd recommend this place.
This pub is cool. Its a great hang out for ex-pats, exchange students, american military and locals. I enjoyed working here and drinking here!!! :P i miss it!
Go for Kareoke Mondays!!! St Patricks day, and halloween! don't miss it! Alot of live music during the week and on weekends!
Dress Code: none
Wow! I was surprised to see such a big club in Germany. Most of them are small. The music and crowd was great! You've go to see it. Best Friday night in a while and didn't cost me much. The DJ was from the states!
Dress Code: Whatever you're confortable with and the girls look really good!
This is where you will find the best techno music in Trier. The best days are fridays and saturdays. From one to ten, this club deserves a solid 7. It is alright, but it probably won't be your all-time-favorite.
Dress Code: something decent.........
