One of my favourite places in Leipzig, in part at least because they serve a mean chili con carne. It's a great place for a relaxed afternoon, with friendly staff and a great atmosphere.

Good food, good beer, grungy dungeon atmosphere. Locals friendly and food very good. I was there for a conference dinner so no idea what it's like on a typical night, but I'd give it another try.

During WGT it is a haven for any goth from around the world. A labyrinth of music and ambiance. Gorgeous old building. I'd love to see what it's like during a regular evening. During WGT it was amazing.

We've only been here when the annual Wave Gotik Treffen festival is on and this is one of the venues, so it's packed. If we came outside of the festival we'd come back here though, as it's one of our favourite places in the city....More

Had a closing party at a professional meeting. Great place, it was a bomb shelter during world war II. The food was so and so. But free beer! Great music! Usually frequented by university students

The Linc Congress social event. It lies in an underground athmosphere, but very comfortable. Usual drinks for free. The worst is the event ends too soon

Make sure you go out on the terrace and look over the city. YOU are very high up and at a small cost can not remember how much it is well worth the view

One of Leipzig's most popular and most beautiful cultural centres. The old bastion in the heart of the city is the only remaining part of the old town fortification. The underground vaults host a café and a restaurant and a terrace during summer. Moritzbastei is a famous part of Leipzig's night life with hundreds of concerts, partys and theatre performances every year.
