Centrally-located in Köln's Atstadt, this is a great little jazz pub with free entry, their own beer (very tasty), lots of old photos and creepy old curiosities that come to life and of course great music.

Love this joint! The older jazz musicians were passionate and soulful. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. They are super talented and the music is awesome. Do visit them whenever you are in Koln!

If you want to hear live music at any time, then that's the place to be. Of course, you could complain about the prices (beer is still more expensive than at Oktoberfest) and other things, but you could also sit back and enjoy the music.

This is a Jazz (mainly), soul/ funk and blues bar in the old town. The Jazz is really hot and 'jumpin' of the New Orleans variety with excellent musicianship. The beer is nothing to write home about and expensive- but there again, entrance is free...More
