Nightlife and Entertainment in Frankfurt

Edit This
The nightlife of Frankfurt is based on an excellent melange of beer-gardens, bars and discos. As one might expect of a city that has the allure of an international one, there are discos and bars that offer music according to every taste, whether you’re more into African or Latin American music or popular jazz or techno. Besides that, the gay and lesbian circuit is flowering as never before. The best quarters to go to, when you’re looking for a good night out, are in the northern part of the centre around ‘Fressgasse’, Zeil, Römerberg and Sachsenhausen.

Frankfurt nightlife is very varied and there is plenty to interest everyone. After the sun sets, the city gets its second wind and you can find many bars, clubs and other sources of entertainment to keep you enthralled until the wee hours of the morning.

Check Out the Clubs

Cocoon club is interesting, as inside there are many individual pods, or cocoons that can remove you from the action and cut down on the noise. These are perfect for meeting friends or having a drink and some conversation. The main draw is the club with music, videos and lighting, but you can also enjoy food at the adjoining restaurant. This is a trendy spot that is open on Fridays and Saturdays all night long.

If your main goal is to get out and dance then check out U60311. This club is always packed on the weekends and the DJs make sure everything keeps moving until the early hours of the morning. You can call ahead to see the type of music that will be playing on that evening, though it is mainly techno and dance music.

Calling all Poets, Activists and Artists

If you are a fan of the arts, particularly performing arts, then Club Voltaire is the spot for musicians, poets, activists and others who are interested in the liberal arts. There are daily events such as readings. Besides the company they serve apple wine, beer and traditional German food. Come in and see why the locals regularly stop into Voltaire.

Explore the Local Jazz Scene

If you are interested in jazz then just head down to Kleine Bockenheimer Strasse, which is called jazz alley. Jazzkeller is a jazz club in a basement right in the center of Frankfurt. This club is the best for jazz and has had many international jazz musicians perform. You can hear modern jazz, Latin, bebop, blues, fink, swing and more. Another great spot for jazz is Blues & Beyond and you should not miss the Monday night jam sessions.

A Night at the Opera

If you want to catch a play, opera or concert you should see what is playing at one of the many theatres or concerts halls. The city has 20 different stages and more than 30 different independent theatre groups. The Old Opera House has been renovated and is the preferred stage for many international acts. It contains two halls; the Great Hall and Mozart Hall. Enjoy an evening of song, symphony, solo concerts or chamber music.

For those that love opera, look no further than Opera Frankfurt. This is one of the most important opera houses in the world and has been named Opera House of the year. The program each year varies, but you can always expect to see works by Strauss, Wagner, Verdi and Mozart. The Opera house also has special understanding opera programs just for children.
