The Clemensstraße is the small Kiez of Lübeck. Some small bars like the Blaue Engel and Nummer 12 let the Clemensstraße be alive, especially at weekends. The Clemensstraße is the place tob e for students, but every generation comes here – to talk, to dance, to play table football or just to enjoy drinks. A must be for all night owls.

Bars & Nightlife

Lübeck’s bars range from the traditional bierkeller to the trendy Italian-style café-bars that serve up coffee and food all day and in the evening take on a complete change of atmosphere, becoming lively bars, often with DJ’s or live music. Most close around 1 am, some stay open until 3 am on Saturday nights. In summer, people flock to the Strandsalon (Beach Club) at the tip of the Wallhalbinsel peninsula for music, films and cocktails. The weekend starts on Thursday, a popular night out for locals as they warm up for serious Friday and Saturday partying. Theme nights ensure that there’s always a good variety of music styles, and summer brings beach parties and rock and pop festivals around Media-Docks. Mühlenstrasse is good for bar-hopping – the ‘in’ place is a multi-storey car park. Clubs open from around 10 pm until 2 am, 3 am, or later.
