During the day, in the very fashionable district of Ehrenfeld, Café Franck is a refuge for every kind of bon viveur, of every age and from all walks of life. But during the weekends, the Café metamorphoses into Shibuya Lounge, and the festivities begin.

The “Veedel” come here to dance


A sure as Peter Parker transforms into Spiderman at the hint of an emergency, on Fridays and Saturdays the coffee usually served here inevitably transforms into cocktails whose names will entice you for their sound alone. What would you say to a “Golden Koi Dance” [„Tanz des goldenen Koi“] or a “Ping pong dreams of France” [„PingPong träumt von Frankreich“]? You will search in vain for the cakes, but the wasabi beans and Thai specialities from Thongsi replace these things in a nice way. Several times a month, the old bakery upstairs becomes an Asiatic club. Very competent DJs ensure an appropriate atmosphere for the weekends. And everyone from “Veedel”, as the inhabitants of Cologne affectionately nickname their district, can be found here.

Where Cologne and Tokyo meet


Those who come to the Club Shibuya-Lounge are just as diverse a bunch as those at the Café Franck. Just a quick glance at the web site will tell you that the evening ahead is exactly what you were looking for. As an example, the programme of musical soirées concocted by DJ Herr Nieswandt and his friends has been running for over three years. There is also “30 Carat Clubbing” [„30 Karat Clubbing“] on the fourth Friday of each month, which over time has become a veritable institution for lesbians, women and transsexuals aged over 30. Gay men are also welcome. The rest of the weekend is provided, this time without DJs, with a quality sound backing that is only intended to get people onto the dance floor, but which has been just as lovingly selected.


Jens, 30 TRENDY ADVERTISER

I've always loved Cologne. The city is industrial and romantic at the same time. I love my city for its galleries, classical concerts and elegant restaurants and its traditional and very trendy bars! My little extra: I love words, the arts and literature!
