The Performance Bar
WOW.. How can we explain this? If you want to be entertained while having a drink this is the place to be. You will not have a dull moment staring into your glass when the conversation is running low. The two owners are true performers and make your stay a night to remember. To make our words more visual: the bar can be turned into a bathtub!!?

Biergarten is the place to be when the sun is out. On a weekend day this area at the back of the Schieblock looks more like a big festival then a beergarten. During the week this place is way more relaxt. You can hang on one of the yellow stairs drink a big beer and eat some of the amazing food!
