The Gloria is a wonderful mix of club, theatre, concert hall and café. This former cinema, which specialises in previews, has managed to hold onto its ‘50s style atmosphere through the years, to be enjoyed by its illustrious patrons who come here on an evening for some fun.

All night long


The Gloria café is a very popular place where people who like to stay up late can get together. The neon-lit notice boards at the entrance as well as in the cinema box office have been preserved as reminders of a time long since past. Through its glass front you can enjoy watching the comings and goings on Apostelnstraße over a refreshing drink. The relaxed atmosphere and very approachable locals ensure you’ll rapidly acquire a new circle of acquaintances.

As exciting as life itself


The events staged at the Gloria are as rich and varied as possible. They take place in the former cinema, in which the red velvet walls are still a feature. Because the events calendar tends to be irregular, we recommend you have a look at the website before you go there. For all those who enjoy live electronic music, the must-sees are the “Smile in Concert” series, and for those who will be in Cologne on 31 December, I strongly recommend the festival being held in the Europa studios (Funkhaus Europa), where you’ll hear the best of world music! Tickets are like gold dust, so you should book them well in advance.








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!
