Cocktail Bar
$
“This is - to me - ONE OF THE BEST COCKTAIL BARS IN COLOGNE. No kiddin'! The problem with all the others is that they are mostly too expensive or too snobby. Honestly, these boys take cocktails serious and do not exaggerate - neither in price, nor in style. For 24 Euros you can make a so called "Weltreise" ("World Trip") and drink four cocktails of your choice. The BarFLY-Feeling included! :) This bar is a pearl! ”

Wine Bar

“If you want to enjoy your time in a very beautiful and old-fashioned parisian styled cafe visit the wine bar / Weinstube MORIO. It is absolutely beautiful and a bit hidden at the square of 'Schillplatz'. The prices are alright, too, and the dishes extremely tasty. Highly recommended! PS: If you like sweeter white wine I recommend the 'Colombard'.”

Restaurant
“Our daughters love to go here for burgers - they recommend the BBQ one especially with the sweet potato fries. Vegetarian/Vegan option available. Take the 18 from the Sülzgürtel stop near us until Ebertplatz. Then simply take the 12/15 to Florastrasse (they leave from the other side of the platform which is underground so keeps you safe from the cold and rain on those days with less good weather). You cannot make reservations so a small wait may be necessary before ordering at the till and finding a seat - but it is worth it!”
