Dortmund - Bars & Nightlife
Dortmund used to produce more beer than virtually any other city in the world, so don’t leave without trying a glass or two. Dortmund’s bars cater to all tastes, and with so many students in town, cheap ’n’ cheerful is as easy to find as chic or cool.
Hovels Hausbrauerei is a traditional micro-brewery which also serves traditional German pub food. Come here for the full German experience.
Subrosa is a cool bar in the Nordstadt. They have poetry readings in the week and live acoustic sets on the weekend. Very UNdesigned and great atmosphere.
Students love this place – the cocktails at € 2.90 from Tuesday to Thursday might have something to do with it. Kaktus Farm occasionally has live music.
One of the principal clubs in town which attracts a mixed crowd. Sixx.pm has two dance floors and a variety of music: electro-punk, industrial, house, revival, 80s etc.
Nightrooms is a huge place with three dance floors and two lounge areas. They play everything from disco to soul, lounge and chart sounds.
