Bars and Cafes in BonnEdit This
Bonn has more to offer the bar-crawling and cafe-going traveler than its austere, political image would lead one to believe. Once you have settled into your hotel, be sure to check out the many modern Bonn bars and cafes that will make your stay here most enjoyable. There are excellent options of Bonn bars and cafes to suit everyone’s tastes.
Relaxed Bonn Bars and Cafes
Bellini Bar, at Rathausgasse 38, is a local favorite. This cafe bar combines an easy Mediterranean coolness with a touch of sophistication. Bellini Bar is relaxed and stylish and offers great service, to boot. The cuisine is generally Italian (as the name would suggest), serving politicians and students alike by day and all manner of party-goers by night. A classic in metropolitan cafe culture, Bellini Bar prides itself on having been the meeting place of choice in the city for over twenty years.
Sports Bonn Bars and Cafes
If a high-energy environment is more your thing, BLA Bar is the place for you. Found on Bornheimer Strasse in the Altstadt, this sports bar features a large-screen television for football matches, motorbike displays and the best contemporary music to dance away to. Opening at 4 p.m every afternoon and serving bar food daily, BLA also plays host to live music, karaoke nights and other promotional evenings to keep things interesting.
Trendy Bonn Bars and Cafes
A casual, yet trendy option is the 3raumswohnung, or “three-roomed apartment” which lives up to its name. This bar and lounge is designed as an actual apartment, with the three rooms or living spaces giving you the option of sitting in comfy sofas to chat and chill out, getting hot and heavy on the dance floor/bedroom, or keeping the bartenders busy in the main bar area. Music here tends to be of the electronic variety, although, like many bars and clubs in the city, it often hosts events as varied as slam poetry, toga parties and themed nights with music from every era. Like all good house parties, snacks are available here too.
Bonn’s stately image doesn’t prevent it from being a fun and interesting place to enjoy great nights out. Whether you’re after a tasty bite to eat, a heady mix of sports and rock ‘n roll, or a trendy venue to dance the night away, the Bonn bars and cafes have it all.
