My partner and I visited Em Pootzke on a Thursday night to experience some live Jazz music. We'd looked up beforehand places to visit, and we noticed this bar had live music so we made plans to visit on our first night in Dusseldorf on a Thursday night. We arrived around 8:30pm and we were the first customers in so... More

I love this little jazz bar. It has probably the best entertainment value in the whole of Dusseldorf. I first stumbled across this place 18 months ago with a couple of friends, and we had a great time. I'm not particularly a jazz fan, but i do recognise a good time when i see it. I thorougly recommend this place.... More

This is a great place to spend the evening at the "Alreadt" in Dusseldorf. Traditional Jazz place, the oldest in Germany. Music is great. Beer is good. Unfortunately, they don't serve food!!!!!

The bear is great and the live music helps to spend a business night in town. Great vibes and young local people all ages...

A cracking little bar with live music on most evenings. It's a small but popular venue so don't expect too much room for yourself, but do expect a fun time, good Altair and a warm welcome.

A long established bar on the Mertengasse, Em Pootzke has been providing a venue for live jazz three or four nights a week since the 1960's. It is a music bar, not a restaurant. A long narrow bar, features a small stage, a traditional ceramic heater and a well stocked bar. The seating is not the most comfortable in the... More
