From wheat and honey lagers to pale ales from Hawaii and Norway, the Naïv menu is a beer lover’s dream. In this bar and restaurant, you’ll find up to 100 craft beers from around the world. One particular highlight is the Norwegian Sour Suzy, which tastes like a typical Berliner wheat beer, while the Gurken Goose riffs on sour beer brewing with its blend of salt, coriander and lactic acid. Naiv’s own beer on tap is made with four different types of malt. Note the backdrop to the bar – 6,500 hand-laid wooden blocks. Combine that with warm red brick walls, solid wood tables and plenty of concrete, and you have the perfect industrial-chic backdrop for a solid night of swilling.
Frankfurt might be best known for money-making and the chaotic magic of mass transport, but all those travellers and business folk need to relax from time to time, right? Germany’s financial capital has shed its boring reputation and has blossomed as an artistic charmer, with fantastic restaurants and a buzzing nightlife scene to boot. At the last count, foreign nationals comprised nearly 30 percent of the city’s residents, and foreign nationals need a boozer or two.
Frankfurt has plenty more than that, and every aspect of the nightlife world is represented. The craft beer revolution has unsurprisingly made its way to the city, while studious mixologists have revitalised Frankfurt’s cocktail bars. You might even find a roaring fireplace and an abundance of bar snacks if you’re lucky. For fun-filled drinks all night long, these are the best bars in Frankfurt.
