The Düsseldorf nightlife is thriving and includes many offbeat and unusual stops. From Cuban bars to Spanish tapas clubs and artsy cocktail lounges, you’re certain to have a memorable night out during your time here.
Red Lounge (Carlsplatz 1)
The Red Lounge is a Düsseldorf bar that is hard to forget once you were inside. Everything is decorated in bright crimson hues. Apart from the color red, the Red Lounge is also known for its casual, fun-filled atmosphere and tasty cocktails.
Bar am Kaiserteich (Ständehausstraße 1)
Located just near the K21, one of the city’s fine art museums, you’ll notice the trendy, artistic quality of the Bar am Kaiserteich. This bar is not just a place for drinking, but also a spot to check out some interesting and one-of-a-kind interior decorating! With over 100 cocktails on the menu (itself, a work of art), there’s plenty of reasons to visit this unique pub.
Mojitos (Hammer Straße 29-31)
A Cuban-themed bar is not what you might expect from a German city. But Mojitos is well-worth your curiosity. Their drink menu has over 150 choices, including their signature cocktail. You can even light up a cigar for an authentic Caribbean experience in the middle of Europe.
Düsseldorf Night Clubs
Nacht Residenz (Bahnstraße 13-15)
The Nacht Residenz is reportedly Düsseldorf’s biggest night club. Make yourself comfortable in the lounge, or get the party started on the dance floor. The music styles here are eclectic and unique, but you’re likely to hear the tune of house or R&B inside. Be sure to dress the part while you’re visiting: the dress code is smart or hip style.
Zakk (Fichtenstraße 40)
If you’re worried about being denied entry at one of the more exclusive clubs, then go no further than Zakk. This Düsseldorf night club is more inclusive with its guests and doesn’t turn many people away if they’re just looking for a good time. You can also expect reasonable prices for drinks and cocktails. Located not far from the main train station, the Zakk is a great place to dance the night away.
El Papagayo (Mertensgasse 2)
This Spanish themed tapas bar and night club is like a breath of fresh air on the Düsseldorf nightlife scene. You won’t find trendy clubbers but you’re sure to have a good time with their karaoke, fun cocktails and theme nights. El Papagayo is the perfect spot to spend some time if you’re looking for a friendly, offbeat night on the town.
