American Bar

David Rippen has been running the Squarebar in Derendorf for ten years on just 30 square meters. He is less interested in glitter cocktails than in sophisticated drinks such as "Cypress Dill" or "Pimms my Ride". He always puts home-made ingredients in the glass.

Collenbachstraße 57, 40476 Düsseldorf, Germany
Hotel Bar

The Venerie Bar is a far cry from the whispering pub charm of its big sister, the Square Bar. In the MUZE boutique hotel, it takes you back to the 1950s - and still looks extremely modern. This is reflected in the drinks menu: a select choice of wines meets local craft beers and the bar's own creations.

Prinz-Georg-Straße 126, 40479 Dusseldorf, Germany
American Bar

The bar is named after a drink that comes from the French Antilles archipelago and means "little punch". There is no shortage of it here, in the form of rum etc.; there are around 50 varieties on the menu. Not to be missed: the inimitable daiquiris - sometimes infused with saffron.

Jülicher Straße 9, 40477 Düsseldorf, Germany
Restaurant Bar

For a sundowner or an aperitif - at 172.5 meters above sea level, even the expectations are sky-high. You won't be disappointed: you won't find any classics on the menu, but you will find signature drinks, gins, whisk(e)ys and an impressive selection of sake. It's not just the food that makes you feel like you're in Japan.

Stromstraße 20, 40221 Düsseldorf, Germany
Hotel Bar

The panoramic windows offer a breathtaking view over Düsseldorf, the ceilings are up to seven metres high and, of course, you feel like you're in the capital of France. Can the drinks menu keep up? Bien sûr! Seductive highballs meet top wines and top Champagnes. Santé!

Louis-Pasteur-Platz 1, 40211 Düsseldorf, Germany
American Bar

A cocktail bar like a second living room. Mixology beginners are brought up to speed in an hour with the "Cocktail Flight" - four small tasting cocktails at an introductory price - or can deepen their knowledge in entertaining training sessions. The highlights: molecular cocktails and changing bartender specials.

Düsselstraße 71, 40219 Düsseldorf, Germany
American Bar

If you entrust your cocktail wishes to Yuto Nagasawa, you will get the best of the best in your glass. The talented bartender and friendly host is a good reason to visit this chic location in the center of Düsseldorf. A hotspot for both international and traditional Japanese bar culture.

Jahnstraße 6, 40215 Dusseldorf, Germany
American Bar

A bar awakens from its slumber. Like its big sister, the Square Bar, the LiQ Bar focuses on homemade cordials, liqueurs and ingredients - but the classics are by no means neglected. The music: pop from the 80s and 90s. The ambience: a glowing microcosm.

Parkstraße 26, 40477 Dusseldorf, Germany
American Bar

It's not as flashy as the works of its namesake Joseph Beuys, but it's certainly creative. The drinks come across as small works of art - even at the outdoor bar - and are true rarities. A small foretaste: a piece of Ibérico ham floats in the whisk(e)y or a skeleton leaf in the "Herb & Fennel Negroni".

Neubrückstraße 2, 40213 Düsseldorf, Germany
American Bar

Namesake and author William Thomas Boothby would have loved it here; refined classics meet creative specials in an ambience that combines a cosy living room atmosphere with speakeasy flair. "Boothby's Herrengedeck", "Kentucky Cooler" or "Eastern Mule" ensure that experts never get bored.

Hüttenstraße 44, 40215 Düsseldorf, Germany
American Bar

A journey back in time to the 60s - Sean Connery would have been in and out here. Cocktails with homemade syrups, all sorts of sours and mules and the highlight: the in-house gin and tonic creation, put together from the extensive gin menu and a wide variety of tonic waters. Changing DJs provide the ambience.

Kurze Straße 3, 40213 Düsseldorf, Germany
Restaurant Bar

A symbiosis of upscale bar culture and creative cuisine in the old scene favourite Mengwasser. There is a real big city flair here, just like in Berlin, Paris or London. There's no denying that the latter is a great source of inspiration. Recommendation: the signature drink "Vicious Rumours".

Friedrichstraße 115 a, 40217 Düsseldorf, Germany

With 434 square metres directly opposite the Deutsche Oper, "Sir Walter" gives its neighbouring stage a run for its money. The audience: from connoisseurs to lovers of cultivated bar culture. The ambience: cosmopolitan and artistic. Excellently mixed drinks meet an extensive wine list.

Heinrich-Heine-Allee 12, 40213 Düsseldorf, Germany
Restaurant Bar

"Para los amigos" is not only the name of the first cocktail on the menu, the ambience is also designed "for friends" of Mallorcan flair. Whether a variety of digestifs or signature drinks - creations such as "Santas Pornstar" with crème de cacao, passion fruit puree and almond espuma take you straight to the Mediterranean island.

Mutter-Ey-Platz 3, 40213 Düsseldorf, Germany
Hotel Bar

The source of inspiration: the old classics. What The View on the 16th floor above Düsseldorf turns it into: signature drinks such as "Innside the Strudel" - the dream come true for Generation Z - or "Martinez", highly aromatic and bittersweet. Plus a small but sophisticated selection of bar snacks.

Speditionstraße 9, 40221 Düsseldorf, Germany
American Bar

The cocktail menu has a lot more to offer, but it's a sin not to try the namesake! The team behind the bar mix the most famous Cuban drink according to the original recipe from Havana: mild mint, the best rum, LIME juice, cane sugar and soda. Good things can be so simple.
