DSG (161) Tel Aviv, Israel | January 23, 2008| Updated August 18, 2008
This place was slightly more crowded than all other Kölsch brewpubs I visited that August noon. Still, service was good and it was quite quiet and cosy. The Köbes seemed a little annoyed when he wanted re-fill my glass after the first beer and I said no (I had too many other beers to drink that day). Still, the Kölsch is very good and one of the best ones.
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.
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.
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.
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.
