I love this little jazz bar. It has probably the best entertainment value in the whole of Dusseldorf. I first stumbled across this place 18 months ago with a couple of friends, and we had a great time. I'm not particularly a jazz fan, but i do recognise a good time when i see it. I thorougly recommend this place.... More

This is a great place to spend the evening at the "Alreadt" in Dusseldorf. Traditional Jazz place, the oldest in Germany. Music is great. Beer is good. Unfortunately, they don't serve food!!!!!

The bear is great and the live music helps to spend a business night in town. Great vibes and young local people all ages...

A long established bar on the Mertengasse, Em Pootzke has been providing a venue for live jazz three or four nights a week since the 1960's. It is a music bar, not a restaurant. A long narrow bar, features a small stage, a traditional ceramic heater and a well stocked bar. The seating is not the most comfortable in the... More
