I love this place. More so that I get to visit semi-frequently. Just sit, enjoy, eat, drink and listen. Timewarp type buzz.

Das mit Abstand beste Kölsch kommt direkt vom Fass in der Friesenstraße. Dazu die solide und deftige Hausmannskost in einem traditionell-rustikalem Ambiente mit geschichtsträchtigem Flair. Wer Köln besucht und hier nicht war, hat definitiv Kölsche Lebenskultur und -freude schlichtweg verpennt!

One of the great pubs of the world, I rate it as highly as that. Just around the corner from our hotel, we visited it more than once and I loved it. Each of the rooms has a different ambiance, but try and place yourself just after the serving area, the beer will flow. No need for music here, that chat is loud, jocular and raucous. The waiters are the best in town, particularly the one now known to us as Millwall (you know who you are!!). The food is of Germanic proportions and surprisingly tasty. Choose a big table and you will be joined, which is what this place is about, it is friendly and down to earth, it will remain in my memory with great fondness. I will be back.

Don’t miss this great yet quirky brew pub, I entered alone in between a conference and a meet up with a friend, with not a word of German I was welcomed seated and served .. the beers kept coming, cold, tasty and refreshing. Really enjoyed the spectacle of the barmen and the serving apparatus, good spot with friends or alone with a book. Beer is the best in town

Freshest Paeffgen in town, served at lower temperature than at other places. Service is efficient and smiling. Interior is traditionnal and adds to the overall experience. Very nice place.

Not only do they have the best kölsc in great conditionh, they also serve it in a lovely pub that appear very authentic and real. We visited just after opening, in fact they had’t brought the first barrel up from the cellar yet. Even if the köbes seemed a bit grumpy having to serve us this early, he was still quick and attentive

Great little place. Beer brought as soon as you finish your last - works well with 20cl glasses - beer always tastes fresh. Food was great, and the service was very efficient - typically German! Really enjoyed the atmosphere though - very worth visiting for dinner and a drink or two!

Awesome place where the ambiance is a minimum of a 5. I sit here looking right at the gravity feed wooden dispensing barrel where three hop wreaths hang just above it. I sit at a narrow like birch wood table top that head straight back to the back of the space, something like 20 of them just along the center. Very unique aged wood and character everywhere. It has a stained glass look looking out both the front and back of the space. Big space that likely blows through kolsch by the barrel when its hoppin.
