Stuttgart nightlife has everything the visitor has come to expect from a German city. There’s the all-night dance clubs, avant-garde cabaret, cozy pubs and quintessential beer gardens.
Classic Rock Cafe (Eberhardstraße)
For Americans feeling a bit homesick on their overseas journey, this Stuttgart bar is the perfect stop. Featuring classic rock music and a great drinks menu, it’s sure to cure any ills. Non-Americans will enjoy the great food and music as well.
Amadeus (Charlottenplatz 17)
This large beer hall is a good bet for a cold pint (or liter) accompanied by some tasty sausage. The Amadeus is decorated in a cozy, intimate feel with dark wood, low tables and comfy leather chairs.
Biergarten im Schloßgarten (Am Schloßgarten 18)
To experience that essential German beer garden atmosphere in Stuttgart, head to the Biergarten im Schloßgarten. Apart from the tasty local brew, this beer garden offers a large-screen TV (always popular with the soccer/football crowd!).
Moulin Rouge (Königstraße 58)
The Moulin Rouge is a one-of-a-kind club that has the typical live music and dance, but with a twist. Striptease, cabaret and even acrobats may be featured here on any given night. It’s definitely worth a visit!
Palais (Königstraße 22)
Another French-named Stuttgart night club in the same part of town, the Palais focuses more on Germany’s top hits. The 1980s are particularly popular for dancing the night away.
Inner Rhythm Club (Theodor-Heuss Straße 28)
Hip-hop is always on the menu at this popular Stuttgart night club. Blues, R&B and reggae can also be heard. Fridays and Saturdays are the peak time for some all-night urban beats and you won’t be disappointed by the Inner Rhythm.
The Laboratorium (Wagenburgstraße 147)
The Laboratorium is a landmark of the city’s nightlife scene. It was opened in the 1960s and is still thriving. You’re likely to hear American bluegrass or jazz, as well as discover some new homegrown talent. The club’s “Local Heroes” spotlights German music and new bands.
