Cheers!

Right in the city center – the Piano Bar

The Piano Bar at the Excelsior Hotel Ernst is an insiders’ tip in Cologne. You can enjoy cocktails, champagne or coffee in the Piano bar which is located only a few metres from the Cathedral but Managers to not be affected from the city's turmoils. During the day, the bar team offers coffee and tea specialties as well as pâtisserie and cakes.
In the evening, Bar Manager Matthias Allgaier and his team mix traditional and unique cocktails, while you listen to the soothingly elegant pianomusic. The menu offers cooked meals even after midnight. The mahogany panelled bar, designed by Count Pilati, provides just the right atmosphere to enjoy the wide range of cocktail creations.
