Nightlife in Hamburg

St Pauli has it all, from sleek dancefloors to intimate live venues. Party stretch, Reeperbahn, hosts cabaret at Schmidts Tivoli. Drink fancy cocktails in Altona or hang out with creative types in bars like Bedford Café in Schanzenviertel. For more classical entertainment, head for Hamburg's State Opera House. Closing times are very relaxed, so don't be surprised to finish a night out as the sun comes up.
