A cool bar space. Enough room to find a seat while still feeling cozy. Modern interior design but not too chic. Clean and not shabby. A place for a decent drink after work or on weekends when you actually don’t want to have a night out but still go out… This kind of bar I thought was missing in Cologne.
Not anymore!!! Look out for the Suderman Bar located in the Agnesviertel quarter. I had two visits so far and enjoyed both. Ordered classics and some of their own creations. Gotta say, better stay at the classics, sorry, dear Suderman team but you just did them much better. My all time favorite Negroni was of course great. And if you get those huge ice cubes where you put only one inside the drink, I’ll be that happy, I’ll spend every Friday at yours, I swear.
Though next time I will test the selection of craft beers first. I heard it’s pretty good and they even have always one on tap beside the usual Kölsch.
Also kudos to employing a female barkeeper. I’ve seen women working at the bar doing cocktails but weirdly never an actual female mixologist before.
So if you find the way out of the cramped inner city pubs and head a little north, here’s the address:
SUDERMAN Sudermanplatz 3 50670 Köln Subway: Ebertplatz, trains 12/15/16/18
