This ultra decadent and hyper eclectic bar double as an art space. The décor is gaudy and fun; its doors welcome a motley crew which gets elbow-to-elbow at the weekend. Kumpelnest 3000,a former brothel, has a lot of atmosphere and deliberately sticks to its roots of openness and freedom of expression. It’s fun, it’s wild, it’s an experience.

For those wanting an introduction to German drink and cuisine with a neighborhood vibe, Tiergarenquelle is an ideal spot.
