Gastropub
“If you want to get out of the center, this place and the neighbouring branch Bien Snack bar is very charming. Check out the menu before you set off, though. It is a bit of a walk back if you change your mind. Luckily it sits right by a light rail stop, though. They just opened a pizza place in the city center too that is worth a visit! ”

Bar
“Hulen is an amazing and unique live music venue driven by enthusiastic student volunteers. They work tirelessly to provide costumers with great concert experiences and setting a particular mood: That of a candle lit and mysterious grotto. Not only that, but the beer pricing ist'n half bad; mostly students come here after all.”
