What are the best bars in Cologne?

At 3equals1 Design we have a much-loved tradition within our team of always putting the anchor down and enjoying a cold beer after visiting London’s commercial furniture showrooms. We fully intend to maintain this tradition in Cologne. So please do send any recommendations to us for the best places to go. In the meantime, here’s a few suggestions from the Independent for the best bars, restaurants, and hotels in Cologne near Orgatec.

Cologne is a cultured city with an incredibly diverse nightlife scene.
