As close as Hamburg gets to the Caribbean, StrandPauli brings you true beach vibes with sand, wooden decks, palm fronds and, if you’re lucky, harbour-side rays. The tall central lamppost is a little out of joint, but otherwise the place does a fine job at transporting you from the Elbe to tropical island chill, complete with relaxed tunes, shabby mix-and-match furnishings, and laid-back, friendly service. Needless to say, it’s a summer hotspot, but proudly open all year round, with hearty fondue added to the menu in the colder months, and some stunning winter sunsets across the water.
