The new premises are larger and the stripped-back walls and wooden bar make for a pleasantly revamped look. Other than that, the Schnörres team haven’t made any changes – the menu still features high-quality drinks (e.g. from Cologne’s “Schnapskartell”) at decent prices, there’s a wide range of DJs (including famous local names) playing a masterful mix of music and the ties with Cologne’s carnival are as close as ever. One change is worth noting – regular wine-tastings have been introduced. And if you get an attack of the night-time nibbles, they also have fine salami and a selection of cheese. The fact that Schnörres has more than 5,300 fans on facebook – an unusually high number for a Cologne pub – says it all. Cologne can’t wait to get more of Schnörres!
