The most unusual bars in Leipzig


Do you love experimental drinks? Then book a table at the IMPERII Barin Leipzig! At the crossroads of the Via Imperii and the Via Regia which were the two most important trade routes of the Holy Roman Empire, this bar in Brühl Street opened in 2015 and offers a fresh new take on the Leipzig lifestyle. Here, you will find unique drinks and a selection of spirits from around the world. Or try some drinks on the Reserve List from a bygone era with a new twist. Order à la carte or take advantage of some personal recommendations when selecting your menu. Inspired by traditional German cuisine, the team at IMPERII will impress you with a selection of exciting, contemporary dishes with a regional and seasonal flair! If you prefer to enjoy a good cigar along with your drink, then you can step into the Smokers' Lounge where you will be advised on the ideal choice of spirits – Guatemala over the clouds, right in the centre of Leipzig. At the IMPERII Bar, you can take a step back from the bustle of everyday life and focus on what matters most: pure enjoyment!

As Goethe said, "No pleasure is merely passing, for the impression it leaves remains." The impressions the VODKARIA leaves are entirely positive! You will be spoilt for choice here with a wide variety of fine vodkas from around the world, each one more delicious than the last. And then there are the excellent house vodkas! You will also want to try the specially-mixed cocktail creations. However, if you are planning to drink all evening, you will also need something to eat. Luckily the food here is absolutely delicious. From smoked salmon with fried egg to fennel pasta or rump steak there is something for everyone. So make your way over to the VODKARIA as soon as possible and join the revellers and night owls who love to hang out there. You can stay there chatting until it gets light as the new day begins. At the VODKARIA, you won't find any sterile anonymity, just an amazingly relaxed atmosphere!

Are you looking for a location with a restaurant, cocktail bar and music salon all under one roof? Then you will want to spend your evening at the Oskar. The house speciality is meat from their original Southern Pride smoker. The half-open kitchen design allows you to observe the team as they also prepare Mexican, German and vegetarian specialities. The first thing you will notice when you enter the Oskar is the remarkable cocktail bar. Here, experienced barkeepers create seasonal cocktails and long drinks, pour regional speciality beers and can recommend the right wine for every occasion. The salon is  Oskar's cultural venue. It hosts romantic piano evenings, lively jazz concerts and electronic dance music. With its extravagant armchairs, the salon is also a location for smokers. If the trip home is too long after a night of partying, you can spend the night in one of the Oskar's comfortable guest rooms.

In the mood for a fun and active evening? Then in addition to friends and good drinks, you will need the right bar! Plan to meet up at the JET and let the games begin! But first, why not order  a custom-prepared White Russian in the house style and enjoy the exciting atmosphere? The JET's stated purpose is to provide access to professional foosball tables even to foosball novices. So in addition to tables from ITSF-recognised brands such as Fireball, Garlando and Bonzini, you will also find two Tecballs, two Leonhart Pro Tournaments, two P4P Ullrichs, a Lettner, an Ullrich home, and – for the ultimate in party fun – a giant foosball for 8 players. All are available to play for free, of course! A large selection of board games, a karaoke machine and a newly-added air hockey table await you and your guests as well. The door is always open to welcome in any night owls and there is a reasonable selection of cocktails available.

The Beyerhaus on the south side of Leipzig city centre is the perfect place for you and your friends to meet up! Alongside various craft beers, cocktails and other drinks, the Beyerhaus also offers culinary delights from snacks to full meals. In the historic rooms of the Beyerhaus, you can relax with a group of friends or challenge them to a round of billiards. Enjoy a drink and a memorable evening at special events such as poetry slams, book readings and plays as well as live music and parties. We particularly recommend the cosy outdoor seating in the courtyard where you can spend a relaxing evening with friends under the colourful lanterns.
