Spending a week-end in Cologne? Keep an evening for a stint at the Flamingo Royal, a club in the centre of the Altstadt (old town) and a must of Cologne nightlife.

Pink Paradise

The Flamingo Royal is great fun and, much like the eponymous bird, it is also very pink. Beware, this place likes men in suits and nicely dressed young ladies. The club is frequented by a trendy clientele and a minimum dress code is required to get in. Your best smile might also do the job; mine (which is of course irresistible!) got me in with no problems.

Modern Miami Vice


Once you are inside you realise it was worth the fuss to get in. If you like TV series from the 80s, it is all here. Just the Miami Vice version 2014 atmosphere makes it worth the trip. The Club Lounge could be on South Beach. The bar is magnificent; the carefully designed lighting turns pink (of course) at regular intervals. The drinks menu is varied and although beer has pride of place, you can also order all sorts of cocktails, both with and without alcohol*.

Fun extras


And if you want to have a kitsch and trendy birthday party... it’s possible! The Flamingo Royal can be hired for an evening or a weekend. You’ll be picked up in a stretch limousine to dance the night away!



* Alcoholic beverages should be consumed in moderation. Please drink responsibly.
