The bartenders here are very serious and knowledgeable. The bar is well appointed, and we had some very good food here.

After having dinner at nice restaurant, we decided to go for a cocktail before returning to our hotel and decided upon the Karl May cocktail. The atmosphere was great and the cocktails superb. Might be considered to be slightly pricey but you get what you...More

Great bar in the Hotel Taschenburgpalais. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable about their menu and seem to really enjoy their work. Great cocktail menu with some interesting combinations and the classics. Limited food menu but enough choice to satisfy all my travelling companions. Fantastic!

Probably the best option in Dresden. The ambience is cozy, nice jazz music and extensive choice of drinks particularly cocktails. However, Piano player/singer could have been better at this standard of the bar.

We had some cocktails and really enjoyed the bar athmosphere and the quality of the drinks. There aren´t that much young customers. More like an old mens club ;-) Enjoy!

Ordering Whiskeys and drinks from a book is strange (certainly knowing, you can not get through ...). Decent service, marvelous food along with the drinks (...we make it possible...).

This bar is both inside and outside in the Tachenberg Palais Hotel. The courtyeard area is highly relaxing on a hot evening and the waiting staff could not be more polite and attentive; 5 sar!

  • This restaurant is at Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski
The Karl May Bar at Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden is a haven for everyone involved with the culinary arts - and especially with bar culture. The bar's ambience pays tribute to the vibrancy of the metropolises pulsating around the world. Elaborately furnished with dark panels, fine oak and claret-red leather, this venue is a real hideaway for connoisseurs. Besides an award-winning cocktail list and a remarkable choice of more than 100 exclusive whiskies - which are best enjoyed in the bar's classy atmosphere - the much-prized bar offers a delightful selection of snacks from the dinner menu until 11.30 P.M.
