Nightlife in Frankfurt

Frankfurt has everything, from ultra-chic cocktail lounges to vibrant live venues. Enjoy the city's favourite drink, the cider-like apple wine, at welcoming taverns like Dauth-Schneider in Sachsenhausen. The city's most happening nightlife clusters in the Ostend, where derelict factories have been turned into thriving clubs and bars. For cutting-edge dance tunes, head to Fechenheim, where German DJ legend Sven Väth rules at Cocoon. Most bars close around 2am; clubs stay open much later.

  1. 1. Irish Pub Bornheim - Bars

    Show more

    Given the villagelike atmosphere of the laid-back Bornheim district, you may think you're in Ireland when you see this pub near a few half-timbered houses. Not far from the happening nightlife in Berger Strasse, it's worth popping in to Irish Pub Bornheim to meet the locals - or the expats who have become so. It's a modest-size pub that lacks the chain-feel of the other Irish pubs in town, with a predictable selection of pints, and even apple wine.
