There have food there too, but most of the times beer is enough to accompany great live jazz they have there! :) Love the place.

Loved this place from the crazy puppets, fun music, and lively crowd. Will definitely come here again.

If you want to hear live music at any time, then that's the place to be. Of course, you could complain about the prices (beer is still more expensive than at Oktoberfest) and other things, but you could also sit back and enjoy the music.

One of the coolest places for a good night out in Cologne.
Live jazz music , great atmosphere , they also have a cocktail machine which is super cool. Drinks are a bit pricey, entrance is free of charge but like most places in Cologne they won’t be open all night. So to make the most of it , it’s best to get there early. Super easy to find, right in the middle of the old town. Don’t miss this one out.

This is a Jazz (mainly), soul/ funk and blues bar in the old town. The Jazz is really hot and 'jumpin' of the New Orleans variety with excellent musicianship. The beer is nothing to write home about and expensive- but there again, entrance is free and so all in all, not too bad.

If visiting Cologne you must take time to have a beer (or 2) in Papa Joes. Great fun night out with local jazz musicians and people from all over the world. Has had live music on every night for over 1700 nights - wow. Pay a visit and enjoy!

Really enjoyed a few hours in this lively place with fantastic decor. Live band playing most of the evening who were of a good standard of a little more pop/rock as opposed to jazz. Great lively atmosphere, bit cramped for some but of you don't mind it a bit busy and like Iive music this is a must

You walk in and see thousands of dollars worth of brass hanging around the place. Good beer, the drinks are a little pricey but the music that they played made up for that.
