The Bochum nightlife is always thriving and interesting, for both locals and visitors. You’ll want to start in the middle of it all, at the Bermudadreieck.
The Bermuda3eck (Bermuda Triangle)
This Bochum nightlife hot spot is the epicenter of the city’s late-night entertainment. It is, of course, famous to the local Bochum populace, but also well-known beyond the Ruhr region.
The Bermuda Triangle is named for the three sides that form the triangle, the Südring, Viktoriastraße and the railroad tracks. Over sixty bars are located here, not to mention a multitude of international and native restaurants, lounges, cinemas and clubs!
Cotton Club (Kortum Straße)
This fun Bochum bar has more than just a fine selection of beer and other alcoholic drinks. In the retro-1940s atmosphere you’ll find more than twenty snooker and pool tables. If that’s not your thing, you can also choose from an assortment of other games. Play a board game, throw some darts or check out what’s on one of their nine TVs.
You can also just sit back and listen to the background music. The style is usually retro as well — swing, blues or jazz.
Bochum Night Clubs
Zeche (Prinz-Regent-Straße 50)
This 1980s cultural icon is still a big hit with the night club goers. There’s always something happening here in the two halls, whether it’s a regular concert event or just your usual dance-the-night-away music groove.
360 Grad (Kohlleppelsweg 45)
Another Bochum night club with a famous name and reputation is the 360 Grad. With three different venues, there’s always something new and exciting to choose from. The 360 Grad prides itself on lesser-known DJ talent and its regular guests.
Don’t forget to check out the cocktail bar, and the bistro if all that dancing has made you peckish.
You can find this hot spot near Ruhr Park and Meditherme.
