A Cologne Institution

The PÄFF bar and tavern has always been located in the heart of Cologne – in the middle of the Friesenviertel.

The oversized and unmistakable PÄFF advertisement can be seen on the façade from afar. For many generations the dance hall par excellence in Cologne, it once established itself as a jazz club in the 70s. Here you have the rare opportunity to enjoy fresh Päffgen Kölsch – directly from the brewery next door! Many consider it the best beer in town. But it’s not easy to get, because you can only get it fresh from the barrel.

Your second home

When you enter the Päff, you leave the everyday life outside the door. No matter how modern the Päff is, you cannot escape its unique charm. Styled in its unmistakable orange, it beams you straight back to the 70s. There’s always something going on around the central counter, which is enthroned in the middle of the room. The counter heroes whirl around and you are right in the middle of it – no matter whether you are alone or in a large group.

If all the trouble gets too much for you, you can enjoy your Kölsch in one of the small sitting areas. Or you can grab one of the red couches and feel right at home.

Popular football pub

The Päff is extremely popular among football fans, as all the important matches are broadcast here and there is a lot of excitement – in an exuberant atmosphere with the best view of the numerous flat screens.

Not only on the lawn, but also at the table it’s hot in the Päff! The professional table soccer table from Lettner makes the hearts of the soccer fans beat faster.

Celebrate at the weekend

A little quieter during the week, the Päff turns into a trendy pub at the weekend. The sound adapts to the mood and changes from funk&soul to charts and from time to time to electro or even hip-hop classics.
