The story of nightlife in Frankfurt is a tale of two cities: you have the alternative student parties of Bockenheim versus the bustling business bars of Nordend. If you’re after something in between, the best option is the suburb Alt-Sachsenhausen, home to a number of ‘Ebbelwoi’ (‘apple wine/cider’) taverns, including Dauth-Schneider, Struwwelpeter and Lorsbacher Thal.
Once you have started the evening with a few drinks, you can move on to one of the city’s many late-night options. Along with the renowned youth-oriented nightclubs like Cocoon Club (mostly electronica), King Kamehameha (mostly house music) and Odeon Club (good for theme nights), there are fantastic live music venues like Jazzkeller (jazz music), Clubkeller (indie music) and Nachtleben (rock, punk and metal). There is also the popular-with-everyone gay club PULSE. Or for something altogether more genteel, seek out of one of the city’s many late-night coffee joints, including the Spanish-influenced Cafe & Bar Celona on Holzgraben – open until 2 a.m.
