I have never tasted a better Gin and Tonic before and the ambience and customer service were top notch. Such a fantastic place that allows you to escape from normality.

We will return !

Consecutive winner of best bar in Germany so expectations were high. Easily met. A speakeasy feel to entry, very comfortable and stylish interior and the option to sit outside. Excellent staff who speak very good English for people who are not as fluent as they might be. Drinks are sublime. Unique and innovative despite a reduced menu being offered, a nice mixture of some slightly showy options and some extremely grown up options. All of which, first and foremost were delicious. We were on a very tight schedule so could only stay for a couple of hours but I would've gladly worked my way through the entire menu. Exquisite and memorable. Thank you to the wonderful staff who served us.

One evening in October 2019 my son introduce us to this bar. Never seen a cocktail bar like that in Canada/BC. oh boy, were the cocktails delicious. Very nice relaxing environment. Of course expensive - paid for 4 people euro150 but it was worth it.
Hope it will be still there when we will visit Germany again

There are many ways to relax and enjoy the life, one of the most elegant is a visit to Seiberts.
A stylish place, delightful, accommodating hosts and the fine art of barkeeping that I’ve never seen before.

You should try the daily specials!

I promise, I will come back.
Thank again for your hospitality!

Seiberts, and the mind behind it, deserves every kind of recognition for delivering quality, character and passion in drinking culture. It is never about trends or industry marketing, but taste first, if a drink, or even a single ingredient, is not working, it will not be served, if a specific variety of fruit is limited in availability, the drink will be limited.

While I never had the pleasure of experiencing the Capri Lounge, I can imagine how many of Volker Seiberts ideas have been perfected there for years, before he put all of his creativity and knowledge into an independent bar.

Cologne can claim a top tier bar worldwide thanks to him and his team: The Highballs are balanced, Barrel Ageing is beyond anything other German bars could ever achieve. If you care about Rum/Rhum/Whiskey or Whisky you will find an above average selection and the best cocktail bar for Old Fashioned style drinks, one that actually cares about bringing out flavours, instead of presenting a slightly aromatic version of a cheap on the rocks style cocktail.

Do not get distracted by the presentation, which is classy, elegant and detailed. Seiberts approaches drinking in the same way a 3 star restaurant would approach food and every part of the experience is done on an excellent level. If you want a good Scotch or Rum based drink, you get it in the same way another person gets strawberry Highballs and infused Gin Tonics.

Characters like Volker Seibert are hard to find in bars, which is why they ought to be praised and celebrated. Every time I visit, there is some new surprising element or skill, raising the bar, pun intended, for everyone else here and internationally

Dear Michele, First of all we want to make very clear, that to us it is top priority that our staff is always treated with enough respect! Since our bar is well known and led as a "Speak Easy Bar", we simply asked you in a very respectful way to watch the sound level of your conversation and to adapt to the quiet ambiance we are trying to create in our bar. Our regular costumers appreciate the calm and relaxing sorrounding and some of them felt quite disturbed by the ongoing loud noises of your conversation! Since you visited our bar on a friday night, we sure know that according to an increased guest appearance the sound level can get higher, which is why we are even more taking care of the sound intensity not to get to high and busy! We do not forbid laughter and we sure want people to have a good time, but after asking you several times to adapt your sound level a bit better, all of you started offending our staff and treated everyone working with us highly disrespectful! For us this has been the triggering moment to ask you to leave and maybe find a place with another concept that might be more suitable for your evening! Best regards

We visited on 30 Dec 2017. I had been so excited to come here after reading all the reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The only downfall to this amazing cocktail bar is the entire menu is German with no English version so we had absolutely no idea what anything was. The waitress was as helpful as she could be, obviously she couldn't read the entire menu to us. After telling them a few ingredients I like, they recommended the Mixed Rum & Ginger Mai Tai. Wow it was spectacular! And only 12.50 euros. I would of loved to of been able to choose another drink, I need to learn German :(

We went early doors and was lucky enough to get a seat at the bar. Watching them make the cocktails was a treat in itself, the work and effort that goes in to them is amazing. Its a charming little bar with bags of character. Very small and very exclusive, so be sure to head down early. Will definitely visit again if we return to Cologne.
