Without a doubt, Cologne Cathedral ( KĂ¶lner Dom ) remains one of the most popular and frequently visited landmarks in the city, and so every day thousands of visitors come to see the beautiful church. However, not everyone knows that there is a very interesting place near the cathedral, on BrĂĽsseler Platz . This is a small square that is a popular meeting spot for hipsters during warmer months. They come there to meet like-minded fellows and enjoy favorite drinks. By the way, the drinks are not necessarily alcoholic ones as the local youth likes Club-Mate soda. So, if you are young, want to get new acquaintances and like soda, head to BrĂĽsseler Platz.
The next secret place will be also liked by fans of noisy parties. This is the secret club Steken . It is called secret because there are no neon signs near its entrance, so itâ€™s not that easy to find it. If you manage to do that, you will enjoy an evening in a cozy place with lively and informal atmosphere. Once a week, the club hosts jazz parties. By the way, Steken is also famous for quite cheap drinks and snacks.
If you prefer visiting elegant places, the party-bar Arty Farty could satisfy you. The venue is a combination of a classic bar, where visitors can enjoy a delicious exotic cocktail, and an art gallery that regularly hosts various interesting events. You never know exactly what youâ€™re going to get in Arty Farty, a vibrant party or another interesting exhibition.
