Schaubude is a bar that has become known as more than just a watering hole. Although the space is small, there is no dearth of exciting events, and a good time is guaranteed.

The discotheque at Pumpe (the pump) is particularly popular on Thursdays, when jazz, funk, soul and HipHop are on the programme. This event is imperative for all the dance-crazed Seventies fans and people who don't care for mainstream or the charts. One night during the weekend is reserved for gays and lesbians, who can meet and party here without any straight folks around. There is usually no admission fee, and the club atmosphere, cheap drinks and friendly staff contribute to the popularity of the place. A tip for all those who would like to stay away from the commercial discotheque scene. The Pumpe also serves as an event venue and cinema.
Kiel's brewery is known for its home-brew and you can enjoy a cheerful night in a rustic atmosphere here. Tours of the brewery are available for groups of four or more people. The beer is especially cheap on Sundays and Mondays, and you can take part in a rather wild drinking session on every first Sunday of the month. The beer-night is particularly popular with groups, who can discover a piece of Bavaria in Kiel on these occasions and see that the people of Kiel also know how to party. Food comes in large and inexpensive helpings here and the home-made bread is much recommended. Many people have already called the brewery's beer hotline which forwards your requests so that one or the other barrel is quickly delivered to your party.
The MAX is bigger than a club and smaller than a large discotheque. That may be the key to its success. The concept has also done the trick at live concerts. The atmosphere is just right for smaller groups of people, readings, private fêtes, popular bands and sophisticated theater. There is a disco every Saturday, and you can dance and party on two levels and at the small bistro until the early morning hours. The MAX is equipped with modern entertainment technology such as video beamers, projection screens and a light show which is unique in Kiel. The MAX is not just open on weekends. On weekdays there are concerts, student parties, film premieres and theater performances. Just check the current programme.

All in all you'll feel good here, among the regulars - as they have realised that the Bambule is not just another pub, but has developed its own very special atmosphere over the years.
The Angler is a traditional pub in Kiel. Beer lovers and night owls mix with the many regulars here especially after concerts at the Ostseehalle.

The Parlenke is a small, typical northern German pub. Fans of the Werner cartoon might recognize the owner and landlord Reuter. The best chili con carne in town is available here, in variations ranging from mild to mega hot. A Weizen beer is much recommended to drink with the meal. The pub is not very large, which creates an almost homely cosiness and invites everyone to stay on for a while. Expect to meet some regulars in leather gear in this rather informal location. But have no fear - the Parlenke is not just a biker pub, and a visit is always worth your while.
