One evening in Leipzig - what to do?

A friend of mine and I are planning on stopping in Leipzig for one night in September. We will be arriving by train and staying at a hotel near the Völkerschlachtdenkmal. We should be arriving at around 19:00 in the evening. We are planning on visiting the Denkmal the next morning, before taking another train.

What could we do in Leipzig in the evening? Even just a recommendation for a good, relaxed restaurant would be appreciated.

The Völkerschlachtdenkmal is a bit off from the city center, but you can take the tram to the city (from the station at the Völkerschlachtdenkmal, both the 2 and the 15 are going to the city and back). The most things are happening either in the Südvorstadt, which is the southern part of the outer city ring and very student oriented with lots of little bars, pubs and restaurants, or near the market in the city centre. The Barfüßgäßchen in particularly is always a good place to go. It's a small street with tighly nestled bars and most people sit outside and it's fun ^^

Thanks, we'll quite probably give it a visit, depending on whether we arrive in Leipzig tired or fresh as daisies. Do you have to take your shoes off when sitting in the Barfüßgaßchen? :)

No, you're quite welcome to leave them on, it's just a name =)

Also, with a lot of people sitting together in one tiny street, I wouldn't want to go there if they walked around the city all day with their shoes on and then having them take them off there =)
