Bolker/ Rattinger, any difference ?

Hi

Travelling in November with my wife, were in our 30's and looking forward to a Friday night out in Altdstadt.

I often read that Bolker and Rattinger are the main streets for nightlife but I'm wondering is there any difference between the two Streets or are they basically the same ?

Does one street attract a different crowd to the other and do the bars differ on each street i.e. Is one more traditional whilst the other more modern ??

Thanks guys.

In a nutshell:

- Bolkerstrasse is mainly for stags and tourists. Also some traditional brewerys are located there

- Ratinger is more local, having beer on the street with mid 30s/40s to chat and have a great time. Some smaller clubs around there. But way more relaxed and down-to-earth compared to Bolker (which I as a local aviod)

Perfect, thanks for that. I couldn't find that anywhere online ! Rattinger sounds better thanks.
