I found this to be a nice place to relax with some friends. The jazz music is the highlight to this bar. It is lively and full of people nearly every night. I would suggest this bar to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Cologne.

23 Euros for 1 Bacardi Coke and 1 gin an tonic. Really? Total rip off. Won’t be back. Also health warning for those with a severe nut allergy, there are monkey nuts everywhere. The floor is covered in shells. Be warned.
