Closed for renovation at my visit in late may. Looked nice for the outside with glass paintings on the wall. Had a glimpse of the inside, seems they are changing out almost everything from carpets to furniture.

Visited on Thursday not too long after opening. Place was almost empty. Not huge compare to other Kölsch bars/restaurants in the city. Service was ok and fast. Selection seems to be only one beer (Pfaffen original), but the other ratings are stating there’s more and it might be possible since I didn’t get ahold of a menu while there. Their Kölsch is good. I didn’t try the food. Price was in line with other places in town. Interesting stop.

Perhap the nicest kolsch bar I visited. Beer predictably dull and limited.

Typical german Kolsch bar: loads of wooden tables, small wooden seats. One of the better Kolsch available. Dont order anything but beer here, cause the Kobes will be rude. We had to leave a table inside, as we didnt want to eat anything, although there were hardly any people inside. Silly and stupid.

Small touristy traditional Kolsch house with pretty stained glass windows. Further away from cathedral therefore quieter. 3 brewed beers on tap. Satisfactory service.

Nice looking place near the Weihnachtsmarkt (in Winter of course). Very friendly who even had some time to talk to us which is rather rare in Köln. Tried their Bock which was pretty OK although I’m not a Heller Bock fan. The food was pretty good, certainly for these prices.

Not the most fantastic ambiance but for Germany standard ok. Friendly staff though. Same goes for the selection: small but good beers. And it continues in the food: cheap but decent.

Lovely place & the outside looks pretty to boot. The inside is full of interesting decorations, lots of dark wood, cosy atmosphere and something essentially German (in a great way).They were a bit packed since were looking only to drink, they guided us to some tables upfront where we could stand and drink which was fine for me. Service was very fast & good, clearly speedier than the service we encountered anywhere else in centre Cologne. They had two beers available, I think if I didn’t specifically ask for options, I would have gotten only Kölsch but that is just how they roll in Cologne so that is fine. Both beers were very interesting, good & unique. It was neat to get half a litre of Heller Bock after doing only small Kölsch glasses prior to coming here. My favourite easily of the Kölsch places we hit in Cologne unless if you count Braustelle a Kölsch place which I do not.

This was the rudest and most unpleasant stop on our tour, and the beer was not so good either. I would give it a miss given how many other nicer spots there are..
