Night Club
“Not really sure, if this place is really worth to be recommended, as it is basically just your typical student club that can be found in any bigger city. Nonetheless, there's some reasons why we still keep coming back: the beer garden is great in the summer, some events are actually quite good (e.g. Electro Swing party with DJ Kunststoff, or live concerts), and the open stage event taking place each Sunday (free admission) is the place to be if you wanna party on a Sunday night.”

“An average club opened on Fri+Sa that often plays 90s music. Nothing really special, but still very popular as it is the only in town where admission is free during the whole night. VERY hot during the summers (you can usually get free tab water at the bar if you ask nicely), and long cues on popular days. No dress-code, but highly intoxicated people will be turned away by the bouncers.”

“One of the best bars to hang out in Karlsruhe that is occupying the space of a former sex-shop. Great local electro DJs on the weekends and daily specials (Bingo, Beer-Pong, etc.) during the rest of the week. Great ambience. Unfortunately, very smoker-friendly, so strict non-smokers should consider another place. ”

“Great place to sample some typical dishes from the region. Brew their own craft beer, a Pils and a beer of the month. The place to be if you wanna watch some soccer matches on TV.”

“A busy pub located at a corner of the probalby most popular square in town, the Gutenbergplatz. You'll find some local wine, beer and food on the menu. Perfect place to hang out during the summer thanks to its beer garden right on the Gutenbergplatz. However, when weather is bad, sitting inside is a great option as well as due to its unique furnishing,”
