Celebration (Bismarckstraße 70)

There is plenty of space for standing around, but a limited amount of tables, so be sure to arrive early if you want a seat. You can take advantage of the dart boards in the back of the pub if you can’t find yourself a chair. And if you’re visiting during the warmer summer months, be sure to enjoy yourself in the outdoor beer garden.
Two Faces (Hochstraße 60)
